1. ### Kilominx God's number bounds

Thanks, cool stuff! Ben Whitmore has also computed <R,U,F> in qtm: DepthNewTotal 011 167 23037 3144181 4696877 533604237 61617620413 77752097933 8369444467377 917522042219581 10825439010473971 113849008748964058 12176067961225032019 13772274582997306601 1430621700564059476657...
2. ### Kilominx God's number bounds

Ben Whitmore recently computed God's Algorithm on the <U,R,F> subgroup and God's Number is 14. So the whole puzzle can be solved in at most 34 moves. http://cubezzz.dyndns.org/drupal/?q=node/view/560 EDIT: Hey xyzzy, if you see this, it doesn't sound like you considered permutation parity in...
3. ### 5x5x5, 6x6x6, 7x7x7 or NxNxN solvers

Cool to see the development of more good NxNxN solvers! Many of the ones in the past have been private or never got released, so there are actually very few out there. Sounds pretty good for reduction! I think in the 4x4x4 FMC challenge some people had solvers that could reduce the 4x4x4 in not...
4. ### [Help Thread] Master Pyraminx Discussion

I guess I might as well post here, my method is edges -> corner ("tri-center") permutation -> solve one face's wings -> solve the rest of the wings. My results were 38.05 single, 41.41 avg5, 45.08 avg12.
5. ### nxnxn cube solver

I was expecting an unsolved thread from the title, but I'm very pleasantly surprised. This is extremely cool stuff and I'm excited to see how it goes forward. When you finish I'd be interested to know how this compares to other NxNxN algorithms. I think IAssemble or one of his friends has a...
6. ### Introducing qqTimer!

Is this still the main thread? Anyway, I made some small changes: F2L scrambles on 3x3x3; when manually entering it will handle stuff like "10.39 DNF", "10.39+", "DNF(10.39)"; after selecting a scramble you don't have to click somewhere else on the page to start the timer; timer will change...

Helicopter Cube (28.19), 29.84, 32.21, (36.64), 32.72 = 31.59 avg5 27.02, (43.70), 42.13, 38.75, 28.19, 29.84, 32.21, 36.64, 32.72, 40.05, 34.06, (26.70) = 34.16 avg12 38.49 avg50

10. ### The (non-jumbling) Curvy Copter UWR Race

My current last layer is corners-edges-centers, and if I have four flipped edges, I just use it as an opportunity to solve two of the four center groups. Do (UF UR)3 and then you can finish those centers when you solve the last two edges. It would probably be clearer with a video, but when I...
11. ### [WR] FMC 19 moves Vladislav Ushakov @ PSU Open 2016

Great. Honestly, this just makes me think the delegate was working with the WR holder to help him cheat. It sounds like he is trying to cover it up and make people stop looking closely.
12. ### [WR] FMC 19 moves Vladislav Ushakov @ PSU Open 2016

Or: "The competitor's solution must be created entirely by the competitor, without help from other people or any electronic devices."
13. ### [WR] FMC 19 moves Vladislav Ushakov @ PSU Open 2016

A crazy thought someone brought up at my last competition: what if we made rotations count as 1 move for FMC purposes? It would function as a small penalty for people who use rotations, to try to get people to avoid them, but also helps prevent things like this, where someone adds rotations to...
14. ### [WR] FMC 19 moves Vladislav Ushakov @ PSU Open 2016

Solution looks like Kociemba to me. That plus the comparison to his previous results... it looks fake to me.
