    Not sure if this is dead or not, but as a colorblind solver, being able to change the color scheme would be amazing. With the current scheme red and orange look nearly identical to me, and trying to figure out reconstructions with it is extremely challenging. Otherwise, this is completely awesome.

    I'm not colourblind, but I was wondering the same thing just yesterday! I figured out a way to do it:
    Download the software, right click on the file "alg.cubing.net.js" and press edit. Search "color scheme" and you can edit the colours. For example, I changed it to "rgbowy" so yellow is on top and red is in front. I'm sure red can be changed it to black or whatever you want.
    It works, but the animation stopped working, and I am still trying to figure out why ...

    Hey Lucas,

    I just noticed this yesterday, but if I have the applet in "Algorithm" mode, and then I click "invert", then this will of course invert the moves in the algorithm box correctly, but it also switches to "moves" mode.

    Was this intentional?

    I have a small knowledge of the simulator and I am wondering if there is a way how to get the timeline/progress bar to its beginning state in case of a reconstruction?

    Example - I would like to get "scrambled cube" directly rather than "solved cube" directly with consequent need to click on reset button (and followed by play button).

    Since Java-applets completely stopped to work in most browsers I try to replace them with with Lucas' software using iframes on my homepage.

    But there are problems when there are several iframes on a page:

    Using Firefox: Several of the iframes usually do not load completely and stay empty. Reloading the page sometimes helps.

    Using Internet Explorer: In many iframes the icons for the play Button etc. is missing.

    Using Microsoft's edge browser works best here: The page keeps responsive while loading and all iframes load. But the cube shown is the clean cube and not the cube given by the algorithm.

    Any ideas how to improve that behaviour?

    If you don´t insist on using Lucas´ simulator, there are other alternatives (throughout the links in threads you can find several of them).

    I recommend Michael Feather´s AnimCubeJS. He offers 2x2x2 - 6x6x6 Rubik´s cubes (including Supercubes), many simulators on a page isn´t a problem at all (for example, see 2x2x2 - 5x5x5 pages on my site in a signature).

    I remember Michael said to me that one of the reason he made his 5x5x5 AnimCubeJS was that it was impossible to run several Lucas´ 5x5x5 simulators on a page.

    Thanks for the alternative. If the problems described above cannot be solved easily I will give it a try. Lucas' simulator is phantastic but it is probably a misuse to use it in the way I want.

    Edit: AnimCubeJS works fine for me so I will use it.
