I think having a number to describe the asymmetry of mo100's would be cool. Kurtosis really isn't that useful.

Getting scrambles from the clipboard can be useful. Creating a new file to import a single scramble is surely cumbersome.

Why hide the viewer? If you're tempted to cheat, you'll probably look at the puzzle in front of you anyway.

Reordering of the categories is in my todo list.

Send me a 30s sound file (.wav, mono, 44100Hz) of your stackmat timer output. I'll see what I can do.

I would recommend only having your records update after each run of the program:

sometimes Ill do like 8 solves, and close puzzle timer
If i come back later and do another 5 solves, it will probably tell me that I got a pb avg of 12. Although I do like that it saves your pb's for single, a5, a12, etc. I think that the data for those should only be pulled from the current session

I'm having a slight glitch when trying to run this, but I have got the app to run. I'll edit my post with more features I'd like to see once I get it working how it should.

I had some stuff written about what I would like to see but since I finally got it working (somewhat) I deleted my text and will come back and edit it once I get a better view of the app. Good work though so far!

The timer looks good. This is probably going to replace J-Net and CCT as my new timer. One suggestion though and I'm not sure if this has been discussed but I didn't see this mentioned.

It could be a good idea if you add a LL scrambler for the 3x3. I find myself wanting to cut down my LL times all the time. This would be cool to have a LL scrambler.

You can create a new category named "Rubik's cube - Last layer" using "Fridrich - OLL training scrambler" as scrambler.

Why not?

Because there are only 57 OLLs..
And everytime you get the the same OLL with this timer, you'll just get the same PLL all the time.

to solve the gray window problem try setting this environment variabile befor launching the jar from the same console:

Code:
export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

@joey I've not tested it, but I'm pretty sure you'll get different PLL's whith the same OLL each time. Much as you'd expect with an actual cube after solving F2L.

@otsyke Yeah, I had this issue with java + compiz but ages ago, I though it'd be already solved.

@Walter Man you're doing an EXCELLENT work, keep on with that

very good job ! it's going to be my main timer
a suggestion : could you make sub-optimal scrambles for pyraminx, like qqtimer ? It's better when you don't know that your scramble is very lucky

Oh man, this is brilliant, I love how easy it is to bring up optimal Cross solutions. It's really helping me.

Edit: I'm also loving that it provides a session summary with the best Ao5 and Ao12... saves soo much time.

Great work, and yes the inspection time would be great even as keybord only addon, but non of the timers I tried so far has this feature.
