How to play Twitch Plays Conway's Game of Life:

  1. Login in to Twitch.tv and join the BZH314 channel chat (https://www.twitch.tv/bzh314)
  2. Enter chat commands to turn cells alive or dead. Supported commands so far are 'on' and 'off'. All commands start with an exclamation mark at the beginning.

    Command structure:

    !<COMMAND> coord1 coord2 ...

    Supported Commands (more coming):

    • !on
    • !off

    Examples:

    • !on 0,0
    • !on 0,0 -1,-1 0,1
    • !off 5,5

  3. The World is a square grid. Its size is displayed at the top of the video stream.
  4. The World origin (coordinates 0,0) is at the center of the square, so for a 69x69 grid, the coordinates of the cells range from -34 to +34.

    Example with a 69x69 Grid:

    • the top left is at -34,+34
    • the top right is at +34,+34
    • the bottom right is at +34,-34
    • the bottom left is at -34,-34

NOTE: There can be up 10 seconds delay between a chat command and its result on screen.
