Re: Bulldog Main Line

...a looong time after my previous post, my current version, which moves to overlay four and six lane segments, and adds 2/4 L corners, because the very long, very diagonal island I have started on this game needs turns, but not junctions. no exits from the corners, and no "2 + exit lanes at 6" over...

mod portal redesign: wider search / discussion title fields

G'day. With the mod design, the portal looks great! The one thing that causes me trouble is that the text fields for search, and for the title of a discussion post, are far too narrow for me. I can see maybe a third of the title of something I'm gonna write, and the search field is over-full sometim...

Re: [0.18.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

I'm calling this release the GUI overhaul. Clock 0.18.1: Internal changes to improve performance. (up to a 400% speed improvement) GUI update (each value's name is now in bold), this required a GUI re-write, so the GUI is auto-closed on_configuration_changed. Removed the word GUI from the clock win...

oversight: programmable speaker doesn't have 0.18.31 "show circuit network" feature

G'day. The 0.18.31 release added the feature: Hovering over the circuit network id in the entity circuit control window will now show a tooltip with the circuit network contents. The programmable speaker doesn't have that field, which is annoying because I can never remember exactly what signal the ...

Re: [0.17]AutoTrash 4.1.5

Thanks for Auto Trash. Still one of my favorite mods, total! I think I may have found a bug somewhere in the latest version, Factorio 0.18.30, but I'm not 100 percent sure what it is. What I did: Add an item (copper ore) by clicking on an empty field, then selecting it. Drag requests down to zero. I...

Re: Mod manager freezing with: fullscreen, HDR/SDR switching, multiple monitors.

By this point I can say with good confidence that the freeze only happens with the flip presentation model turned on. That's good, thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately, it isn't fixed by flip presentation: two or three times I've reproduced the "hang forever" during initial loading, with flip ...

My best guess is still that the monitor mode switching led to something waiting forever, and turning off flip stops the m...

Re: Mod manager freezing with: fullscreen, HDR/SDR switching, multiple monitors.

After a few more hours, still zero problems, even trying hard to repro this for a little while. Again, pretty sure that because flip presentation stops the HDR/SDR switching it also stops this problem. I'm inclined to think that it is some sort of stall with that, or waiting on vsync, combined with ...

Re: Mod manager freezing with: fullscreen, HDR/SDR switching, multiple monitors.

Quick update: I'm 99 percent certain that disabling the flip presentation model solves this, because now the monitor stays in HDR mode all the time. The Windows 10 native "adjust SDR windows for HDR display" feature is applied instead, so no mode switching. Since that SDR/HDR monitor mode switching ...

game.merge_forces null pointer deref

G'day. In cleaning up (manually) after trying out the "biter factions" mod I used `/c game.merge_factions("biter_facter_5", "enemy")` to merge the factions the mod added ("biter_faction_1" through "biter_faction_5") back into the normal enemies. This pretty reliably caused a null ptr deref for me if...

Re: Make the mod changelog window default to changes since the installed version when opened from "Updates" tab

Alternate idea: show the changelog in "newest first" order rather than "oldest first" so that the recent changes are the ones I most likely care about. Thank you.

Re: Accessability: shortcut_bar_expand_button

Fun fact, this must be different from one to another depending on personal experience : I saw it right away, because I was kind of expecting something to be there. "Usability" is always personal, and worse, sometimes contradictory. That said, I'd definitely support a larger button, for two reasons:...

G'day. This is probably going to be a pain to explain or reproduce, but: Factorio will sometimes freeze -- or take > 30 seconds to respond -- when: [ol] [li] I have Factorio open fullscreen on one monitor, and [li] I have the "mod" management GUI (install/remove) open, and [li] I move the mouse betw...
