Re: Download CAPTCHA prevents automated downloads

Factorio already has an API key - the service token, which keb already mentioned in the first post. It is a 30-character hexadecimal string stored in player-data.json (after the first in-game authentication using username and password). It is used for Factorio updates and for hosting a server, where...

Re: Friday Facts #259 - Scan-codes, Prototype IDs, HR worm

I partially agree : it should be Ctrl+"the bottom left letter key" when that letter is not Z ! :P It's still wrong - as the empty space next to XCV hints at. Why do you consider it wrong? Obviously the CTRL+Z keyboard combination was picked because the Z key (on US keyboards) was in the bottom row ...

Re: Friday Facts #259 - Scan-codes, Prototype IDs, HR worm

At the risk of repeating what I said on Discord, IMHO you should do the right thing ™, and set "Undo" to the scan-code for "whatever is the bottom left letter key" (Z for QWERTY, Y for QWERTZ, W for AZERTY, Я for JCUKEN...) ... There is no well defined "Right Thing" in this case. For example CRTL-Z...

Re: Order

The wiki still has this entry (under Basic): So, something with the order "a" comes before something with the order "b" or "c". "something" is not defined, but it's apparent that it means Prototype. As for "comes", in this case I would say "it is processed/listed before ...". The order property is a...

Re: Order

... Bilka is German and this is a simple translation error. "2 like prototypes" essentially means "2 similar prototypes" (or technically prototypes that have the same type, which should be reflected on the wiki page). Also, "to determine if a given prototype comes before or after another", comes is...

Re: Order

How to make it parametrically? ? The order string is just that, a simple string. - (minus) and [] (square brackets) are just added for human readability, but they don't influence the result*. I'm not sure what you mean by parametrically/parametrisch. * They do, somewhat, but you'll probably never g...

Re: New user - black screen on load

I'm not sure what the crop bitmaps step is doing, but since it only seems to run on first run, (and maybe when you make certain changes to graphics settings), it presumably caches its results somewhere. That leads to another possibility. Perhaps your antivirus program or windows file permissions ar...

Re: Dragging power poles should connect power networks

The issue isn't that it thinks the miners already have power. Dragging is pretty simple logic - as soon as you're at edge of range of all power poles, drop another pole. Dragging was changed a while ago to make sure all entities in the area are connected, e.g. if you run along a row of inserters an...

Re: [0.16.51] Drill doesn't restart when new ore is placed below

Not a bug. https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=37198 That's a side effect of an optimization done for mining drills and will be staying that way. Once the drill runs out of things to mine it is shut off so it doesn't consume CPU time needlessly on the extremely low chance that ore is sp...

I'm not sure if I should report this crash, however the dialog urged me to do so ("Post the contents of the log file, inlcuding your save file, on the forums"). And a forum wide search didn't yield any results when I tried with specific keywords from the log. I'll understand if this gets moved to 1/...
