Hello I am sorry to bother you but I was not visiting your site when these posts were so I do that is why I am posting 5 years after the last post I was wondering if you explain in detail exactly how to use this program because I love the description but I could never play this game so it would be fantastic if you would explain to me about turning the pixels on and off and the aspects of the game I should know about.

Anyway conways game of life isnt a game its a cellular automa(sp) sim .The Game is played by placing cells on to a grid and then aplying certian rules to them to create a new generation of cells. When done by a computer it can create some pretty cool patterns. For a list of the rules see [font="Arial"]Google

 Posted: 29 Oct 2009 06:59:02 am    Post subject: Well a standard implementation of conway's game of life wouldnt be out of anyones league if they have some basic programming knowledge. The tricks come into play when you want to get extra speed. I suggest to begin with, especially if you are programming in BASIC, to pretend that the pixels are really big so that you dont have as much of the 'world' to process.
