1. Megaminx Algorithms

Hi,

Could someone please post a list of algorithms for solving the Megaminx!!

I am strugging and cant work out how to progress from the stage i am at. I have solved one face and 2 layers including the middle corners to the other faces.

Thanks

2. No Algorithms needed except for Last Layer. Watch Erik's tutorial on youtube or read it on his homepage: http://www.erikku.110mb.com/minx.html

3. You'll hear over and over how the megaminx is "just like" or "very similar" to a 3x3x3. It's mostly true: It's quite similar. You can do F2L to solve several "layers" of the megaminx. The first set of F2L is sort of obvious: It's the first layer corners and the edges above them. The next set of F2L pairs are the corners and edges above the ones you just solved. It's a little hard to describe in words, but you can use F2L to solve the vast majority of the cube from here, being a little creative.

When it comes to the last layer, I had trouble. I was able to get it partially done using adapted algs from the 3x3x3, but I honestly couldn't get the whole way by myself. Maybe it's because I was doing it with a megaminx simulator (I don't have a real megaminx puzzle). Maybe I was too lazy.

Either way, I went looking for solutions and didn't find many that I liked. There are a few here on the wiki page:

One of those might float your boat. If not, I found a very simple solution that I like quite a bit at the Meffert's site (google found it for me). It's here:

You can use that as a complete solution, or do what I did, and use F2L to get all but the last layer, and then use the end of that solution to solve the LL.

Finally, the simulator I was using has two solutions, but they are mostly in words, as opposed to algs. They list a few algs, but not many:

I was able to get most of the way there with their words explanation, but I couldn't ever quite complete the last layer with their method.

I hope that helps.

Brian.

4. I can try to help, but I can't make a website or anything like that.

I can make some images using paint on Windows 7.

5. MAN! learn to use google.....

6. google is great for this! or you can learn to search the threads

7. Guys this is from '09.
