    Hey guys
    I've made a small little excel (and pdf) file after watching badmephisto's PLL Recognition video.
    I have sketched the recognizable patterns and made them in a customisable, printable format using excel. here's a sample...
    [​IMG]
    The original excel file is available for download on my blog.
    This is obviously intended for people who are starting to learn the PLLs.
    Kinda replacement for the marker pens used by many of us to mark these patterns :p
    Please comment & share.
    Cheers!

    EDIT: Just for the sake of completion,
    a video on how to determine the direction of corner swap for E perm
    No voice in this as i shot it using a mobile camera which was held in my mouth lol :p

    I believe this really can help recognition (the yellow sqares didn't help me much)

    I would in addtion mark (may be with one arrow) the way a block/layer starts moving, that helped me a lot to distinguish similar cases. But that obviously depends on the algs one learns.

    Ah, that's pretty nice!
    I like how the corners are "star'd in" when they're not moving. :)

    Very good. I found these patterns on my own when learning PLLs and I'm sure many others did as well. I'm unsure as to whether finding the patterns myself was beneficial at all, thoughts? Either way I'm loving all the teaching stuff you're releasing.

    Looks like you're after Badmephisto's crown as the best source for speedcubing beginners. :)

    This is so incredibly helpful. I just started learning full PLL and was slightly confused by looking at just the arrows.

    My friend Spencer Thompson is also just now learning full PLL, and is finding some of the recognition a bit much of a handful at first. I'll be linking him to this :)

    Good idea. i used to mark those x and x' rotation arrows for A and E when i was learning. (hence put that notation image for rotations :p took a while for me to get the x,y,z right)

    i like ur signature.

    thanks buddy. btw i think its good u found them on ur own. stays deep rooted in it. :)

    :D Hell no! but i do like ur comment. i drifted into this fantasy world for a minute. but then i saw my times :p lol.

    thanks everybody for your nice comments. i appreciate them all !
    cheers!

    I think some people recognise A perms by opposite colours, but looking for headlights is probably more beginner friendly.

    Hi everybody.
    I just made a little video for determinig the corner swap direction for the E perm.
    We all know the logic behind it. I just made it in a video format for the sake of completion.
    It is edited in the Original Post. Please share with newbies :)
    thanks.
