Re: [0.12.0] nonNAT loopback Router = no MP with LAN players

Assuming you did use different ports for each factorio behind NAT. There are still few options available. You can overkill it and use a VPN. You should be able to redirect traffic(s) to each other in some routing table | At least Linux can do that. Just add a prerouting rule of "Going to my ext...

Re: Can't run 0.12 "Failed to encode executable path as UTF-8."

Failed to encode executable path as UTF-8.
Where is factorio installed?
Does the path have any strange characters / spaces in it?

If so, try installing into a short space-free path and see if that helps

Re: Friday facts #95 - 0.12 Release today

And for some reason concrete road doesn't show on global map if drones build it. Make sure that the map has been updated by either walking nearby or having it scanned by a radar. I know this doesn't likely cause the issue, but that's how troubleshooting works: Start with the easily testable. Yeah, ...

Re: [0.11.22] Right-To-Left languages are presented Left-To-Right

So it might be crashing only for you?
Did you try it on a fresh factorio copy of both factorio data and configuration?

EDIT: Oh, you already did that in the Laptop thread.

Re: Please cap desync reports

What "this" ?


PS:
I think the "test" program can test files for their age.
It should be easy to delete any older than X days in a shell script.
Then just append the "lauch factorio command" at the end of it.
And voilà, a factorio shortcut that caps desync reports :)

Re: small improvement for default save

Took me a while to understand. "Load game" dialogue defaults to the yougest save and that's allright. Also it's irrelevant. The rest is about saving the game manually, could be called "Save game As" And the OP is not happy about the default option there. The suggestion is impleme...

Re: [0.11.22] Right-To-Left languages are presented Left-To-Right in the menus

remark: implementing a Hebrew text search could also be much harder because of this. The inner disk-search algorithm will likely be set to look for a sequence of bytes, but if you have both "logical" and "visual" - formatted files, finding one byte pattern simply won't work. All ...

Do they use a plain text file even for their now-quite-old launcher? I thought I saw human-unfriendly xml being involved. Also adding a mod stopped being a "dump mod into mods dir, edit config, run" zeroclick type of deal. Did they finally resolve that ID thing? That "api" truly ...

Re: [0.11.22] Right-To-Left languages are presented Left-To-Right in the menus

Allegro is the gaming/graphics engine that Factorio uses. If it doesn't support Unicode direction markers then MF-'s suggestion probably won't work. I thought the whole point of "logical ordering" is not having to support unicode direction markers Note: That's abbreviated in the former me...

Re: [0.11.20] Right-To-Left languages are presented Left-To-Right in the menus

If I understand you correctly, then it's the other way around - the text in the locale files is visually ok - but the game re-arranges it logically and that messes up the visual... I thought factorio simply doesn't support RTL / BiDi. So a "logical" RTL format will appear allright in the ...
