    Which Jeremy was trying to fix.

    It should be a good representation of a typical time for the session, so some good options are:

    - Median
    - DNF-dependent trimmed average (where the number of trimmed times from both ends equals the number of DNFs)
    - Average of your middle 50% of solves.

    Yeah, throwing out all DNFs is bad. I would love to see people use Michael Gottlieb's suggestion: Throw out (n/10 rounded up the nearest even number) solves, and average what's left behind. This basically amounts to averaging the middle 90% of solves.

    You should add puzzles from QQTimer.

    One thing I reccomend you add is to make the scramble selectable, that is, so I can copy and paste it.
     
  6. Wonderful timer, I've always tried using CCT since I wanted a nice, downloadable timer but CCT never really cut out for me. This will be the best timer ever (for me) if I can get my stackmat working fine on this. :D

    Awesome timer!

    Being the noob I am at reading scrambles, an animated cube scrambling itself as you click it (perhaps with options regarding speed of the animation) would make this pretty much perfect for the less advanced cubers.

    Absolutely love it! Works with no problems for me. I really like the fact that it has a cube for you to see if you got the scramble right. One thing though is that when I start a new session after a few solves it will sometimes give me a message saying that I have a new personal best for an average of twelve. Even though I haven't even done twelve solves yet. I am assuming that it means the last twelve solves you did from that session and the previous one?

    I'm running it on a mac and it works fine.


    This timer is awesome. I never really liked CCT, not sure why. But I think I will use this as my main timer now.
     
  11. I was using puzzle timer a bit yesterday, and then I closed it out, thinking it would save the session.
    Then a little later, I opened it up, and my session was gone. Is this normal? If so, I think it would be
    a good idea to put it in.

    The timer is great but I can't pull up the times after I close the program. I downloaded H2, but can't seem to figure out how to install it (maybe I have?).

    What do I need to do to get it to locate the old times (tried the history menu option)? The completed times database is on my desktop but the extension .h2.db will not open.

    2 more suggestions:
    Make 2x2 scrambles use only RUF, random state, and maybe an option for non-optimal random state.
    Make 4x4 scrambles only use the ruf wide turns.

    Don't you mean sub-optimal 2x2x2 scrambler?


    And for the people who says it doesn't save your session... Then yes, it is not supposed to save the session, but it stores your times in a DB so you can view your history/stats for each puzzle (view -> history...). If this doesn't work, then it is a bug :) (it works fine for me :p)

    Try the other way around. First select the device, then select Options -> Timer trigger -> Stackmat timer.

    Some good ideas here. I'll think about them.

    What would be a "more intuitive management for times, puzzles, histories, sessions"? I think the current way is pretty straightforward.

    Honest question: what sessions are used for? Why should they span more than one run of the program?

    My current deployment method is Export... -> Runnable jar file in Eclipse. It works fine for a solo developer.
