Got this megaminx like 2 weeks ago and I uploaded a few megaminx videos with it, thought some of you guys might find it interesting. Put videos in spoilers so they don't take up the entire page :)
Feel free to ask questions about the megaminx, I'll try to answer them the best I can...
I figured the internet was lacking a sub 0.5 2-flip execution, so here ya go! Frame count is 13/30 -> 0.43 as well, so that's cool.
Feel free to beat this if you feel like it ^_^
Edit: ahh forgot to mention the obvious: 8 moves in 0.43 ~ 18.60 tps
Just a little Chrome Extension I made last weekend.
It supports quite a few scramble types and even have an in-built timer :-)
For the most up-to-date description/download, clicky here
Some people have suggested that it should tell you your averages, but I'm thinking that if it does...
Since Cubecomps doesn't state state that this is a World Record I would like to point out that Kaijun Lin just broke the 3x3x3 blind WR at Guangdong Open 2014 (http://cubecomps.com/live.php?cid=648&compid=39)
Times: 29.47 - 27.63 - 26.11 = 27.74 WR
First an example:
Swedish Championships 2013 3x3x3 final, Harald Stiff vs. Simon Westlund. They both got 9.61 average, but Simon got the faster single.
Why does it make sense that this ranks them equal while this ranks Simon as the better?
Reg 9f14 describes how rankings should be...
4b3c) Pyraminx and Skewb: The (random) state must require at least 7 moves to solve.
Above should be changed to:
4b3c) Pyraminx and Skewb: The (random) state must require at least 6 moves to solve.
Reason: Current world record was with a 6 move solution.
There's no doubt about the Pochmann scrambling system for megaminx was a great improvement from what we had before, but I still find it "hard" to get the scrambles correct. In my opinion the scrambling notation should help the scrambler get the scramble right over a system that is more uniformly...
I could probably get sub 1 if I tried some more, but I'm happy with this :) (and yes, skewb is a minx puzzle.)
ohh ya, I think inspection was 25ish, but that's because of skewb! I can't inspect it yet... so hopefully people will not blame me too much for overinspecting, sorry.
I have a skewb challenge for you! Perform below cases/triggers on skewb as fast as alienly possible and post a video of it as proof. You can also play along by guessing what times are possible for people to achieve for below triggers.
I'll try to keep below rankings up-to-date with top 3...
Average of 12: 3.68

She is the first girl to sub 4 avg, yay :)
Pay attention to her turning style, as for method goes, she uses "Bell" I did not really look into it yet, but I will try figure out sometime soon what that is all about.
Uwe Meffert has asked me to find the shirt size (polo shirt) of specific people, but since I can't reach all of them efficiently (and because I really have better things to do when I'm on holiday) I would love if you guys could help me out with this :) it is somewhat urgent.
