Re: Ubuntu, Steam, crash on start, no log file

I found it in snap ~/snap/steam/common/.factorio/ , but it's empty save for the save files directory. No logs. Hmm, interesting. What is "snap" folder? If you execute factorio binary from terminal, it'll print out the log into there (I think). But Steam will want to relaunch it under the ...

Re: [posila] [1.1.35] No pictures to put in atlas.

Thanks for the report.
Sprites with size close to 2048px (or 4096px in high res) will be force to have "no-atlas" priority in 1.1.77

Re: [posila] [1.1.35] No pictures to put in atlas.

Similar to 104853, but in this case it attempts to add to the atlas a sprite which has same width as the atlas (2048px), which it fails to do because of extra padding that is added to the sprites in atlases. So, not fixed yet.

Re: [1.1.74] Preferred screen setting doesn't work correctly in multi-monitor setups

The practical IDs match in your log, I think DXGI (the display subsystem) might just not match the numbers windows displays when you move them around in the virtual space. That's correct. I don't know how to reasonably get numbering Windows shows in its Display settings and DirectX numbering doesn'...

Re: [1.1.74] failing to load player-data after save (infrequent)

So something... is going very weird on your system(s) that I've never seen before. Figuring that out will likely lead to the fix. The corruption in data is weirdly specific. I would expect system/HW problem, that would cause this kind of data corruption, to cause the game crash all the time on many...

Re: [1.1.76] What is the blending mode for LuaRendering color?

Oh, it seems you spent lot of time on this, I am sorry 🙈 Expectation: Rendering's color to behave like tint, and the default blendmode to be: normal . Rendering's color behaves the same as tint does. This is clear that *just* changing the color results in an increase in opacity, the more white the c...

Re: [posila] [1.1.72] recipe.crafting_machine_tint unexpected results with transparent black

Some specific things (like smoke) test for transparency level being very close to being completely transparent, but general sprite drawing doesn't. I don't think machines that have working visualizations will generate that many sprites for it to matter.

Re: Unnecessary pop-up reuse

It's not a bug. So I am moving it back to ideas and suggestions. People forget they chose some specific version and then report bugs about the game not updating. Also if you want to stay on a specific version, I suggest you download it from the website as older builds get deleted sooner or later (ex...

Re: [1.1.72] recipe.crafting_machine_tint unexpected results with transparent black

Some programmer tried to be smart (me) and thought nobody will need to tint anything by {0,0,0,0}, because that would make it invisible, therefore the sprite wouldn't need to be there in the first place. So I used 0,0,0,0 as signal value, to indicate the value was not set in the prototype and we sho...

Re: [1.1.72] Graphical artefacts on MacOS with arm builds

It only happens with Video memory usage set to something lower than All, so as a workaround, until it is fixed, ou can change the setting in the graphics options (and restart the game)

Re: Friday Facts #371 - Apple Silicon

Now I hope that the game not only performs better - and have a much smaller energy footprint, but also let me build bigger factories before hitting the RAM limit. When it does, it is still playable, however it become a lot slower and creates a huge wear on the internal SSD. I know that the most via...

Re: Friday Facts #371 - Apple Silicon

Thanks - now its time to raise Factorio to the iPad (with keyboard) - is it? Last time I had to deal with releasing an app on the App Store, it was not allowed to run scripts downloaded from the Internet. If they still have this rule, that would mean no mods like on Switch, and it could also cause ...

Unfortunatelly, PC purchase doesn't give you access to Nintendo Switch version.

Either ways, you have to wait. I agree. The browser wouldn't magically download 1.5 GB of assets faster than the ZIP file, so you'd have to wait for the browser hosted version too :D Anyway, we use SDL but are not completely built on top of SDL. Meaning, we'd have to port at least rendering to WebG...
