Hi BirdOfChaos, welcome to SpeedSolving community.
Glad you managed to get back into cubing with MirIS.
The '3 slots' step of MirIS is basically a restricted version of the F2L step in CFOP. If you use the technique to fill up 4 slots instead of 3 you are onto a normal CFOP last layer.
Hi Whurm, great work volunteering at the nursing home - I'm sure they really appreciate it.
The alignment step is probably the most difficult to understand conceptually, since (in the adjacent case) you have to understand exactly which two edges are permuted correctly. For those familiar with...
Hi ruwix, thanks for pointing that out. I've built a new version that has a bunch of improvements, and this fix. It is available here:
I'll write up an API when I have time. In the mean time have a look at these pages for some idea of how to use it in...
The tutorial on the site has been more carefully authored so I recommend following that one.
If the steps here are followed as a sequence the step 2c still works. It sets up the corner so that the white sticker is not on top, making it solvable in the next step (2c).
@bcube we have finally completed the algorithm/playback button feature. A basic example of its use can be found on the MirIS tutorial here. And a more advanced example can be found on the ZZ tutorial here.
When I have more time I'll post a detailed API here.
Tips for improving speed/efficiency and transition to speed solving
These steps are roughly ordered by difficulty:
Improve speed/efficiency when solving C+E pairs:
- When lifting a corner from an incorrect slot to the top layer, turn cube so that the white sticker is facing you and apply...
37.38, 37.58, (50.44), 44.48, (35.36) = 39.81
I'm sure an experienced CFOPer with good turn speed would be able to do much better. Fancy a try?
Hi Mat, sure has been a while. Busy as always but I try to pop in from time to time. Let me know how the teaching goes.
