Options TwoSteps

"TwoSteps" works quite similar the "totalistic" type. But here you may define own rules for odd and even generations.
This dialog is for defining your own Automaton.
 "rule"is a String of digits and special characters (+-=!?). This is the rule for transition to the next generation of a cell. More details you'll find in the manual in chapter 'fundamentals totalistic'!

'totalistic' means that the states/values of the neighbour cells will be summed up. This sum is relevant for the transition rule.
The 5 button after neighbours defines the neighbourhood: Green is neighbour, grey is not.  '0' is  the cell itself.
For exploring the new Automaton touch button 'use this'.
