I think I have a nice sub-300 in PICO-8, 293 to be exact. And if you remove a line, you can even draw your own starting pattern in the sprite editor!

Speaking of which, the pseudo-random rule, in layman's terms, you should loop through each and every pixel and randomly set it on or off, right? That's what I did anyway.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

159... I can probably go smaller than that in TI-BASIC, but if ben_g can golf it any more I don't have much more room.

I think I have about 160, but I have yet to test it.

Nice seeming the replies come in! Friday will be the day when I make the next scoreboard update, mostly for you to keep trying harder and to not stop when you know your position is secure  ;)
I also made a solution in axe to this, which I will probably describe in the postmortem section. It is similar to @ben_g 's solution, but only takes up 110 bytes.
And also a small hint to axe golfers: randomizing the screen only takes 3 bytes :P

I'm kind of screwed with long function and define names in the library I'm using. I could get mine well below 200 if I went in and renamed a few things, but I don't know if that's considered cheating or not.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

It's actually funny how slow my solution is. I'm testing it out now, and it's taken 30 minutes for two-thirds of a frame. It also runs in O(n2) time where n is the number of pixels on the screen, so if you try it on a CSE while changing the numbers around so it takes up the whole graph screen, it'll take about two days per frame-- if it even works, which I suspect it won't for a different reason.

EDIT: Two things.

First, the spec should add that every possible combination of cells should be supported (to disallow TI-BASIC answers that store all live points in a list and thus won't work with more than 999).

Second, my solution seems to work. I've been testing it for about six hours, and I'm starting to get blocks and blinkers, and even one LWSS!

I saved one byte by halving the speed of the program, so now it's an hour and a half per frame (at 15 MHz), or about one pixel per second. This is ridiculous.

And here I am with my program that runs 10 generations per second
On the other hand, it's 308 296 bytes

@pbfy0 what language are you using? That sounds fast for Axe, especially golfed Axe.

I managed to shave one more byte, but now my code takes two hours per frame. I hope you have the patience to test it, c4ooo...

I'm using nspire assembly. It's mostly so fast just because the calculator is fast. On the other hand, it's hard to golf past a certain point because all arm instructions are 4 bytes.

A well-golfed solution is entertaining to create and read even if it's in a verbose language.

The shortest version of my code is fast* again! I'll probably never get close to 110 bytes though.




*one frame every 40 minutes

Well, doesn't the emulator Wabbitemu have an option to run TI-83/84/+/SE code at 1600% speed or something? That would mean about 7.5 minutes per frame :P
Did you know that "Ammonia Gas" rearranged is "As Omnimaga"?

It would only be 3 minutes with my updated code! That's an amazing .005 FPS.

Is anyone else entering the constest in TI-BASIC?

I have 93 bytes in TI-BASIC, but I think Runer112 has already beaten me in Axe with 88.

This challenge has been very entertaining; in fact, it's even better than I thought.

So, I don't think my entry will be finished today, but I'm still going to post it here when I have it finished.

I have extended the deadline from @pimathbrainiac's "11:59:59 PM ET Saturday" to 11:59:59 PM ET Sunday. From the beginning i believed that  11:59:59 PM ET Sunday was the deadline, and thought pimathbrainiac made a typo when he said Saturday. Although the deadline for this challenge is 11:59:59 PM ET Sunday, following challenges will most likely have the deadline of 11:59:59 PM ET Saturday.
