    List of PLL algs for 2/1 Look PLL

    There are a lot of algs out there, some of which do the same thing. I have grouped all the algs I use for people looking for efficient perms. I had to do this the hard way, looking through random pages for the fastest moves to make. Here they are: Corner swap: R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R'...

    An OLL case more easily solved with two step, than with one step

    The attached case is more easily solved in my opinion with the common F U R U' R' F' alg followed by the sune case R' U' R U' R' U2 R.

    3D Rubik's Cube algorithm widget (CSS3)

    I'd like to present you a nice little project which lets you animate Rubik's Cube algorithms and patterns. Set up the algorithm you want to save and the program generates a custom link where you can always access it or use the embed code to add it to a website. This example is the animation...

    I am proposing a website for all specialised alg sets!

    I am proposing a Website for Specialist Alg-Sets! http://joshuafarrell.16mb.com Hello, I have created the website www.joshuafarrell.16mb.com (sorry its a default subdomain), on the website is currently some small alg-sets I have created which are probably not incredibly useful but each have...

    Algorithmic F2L Guide

    I made this guide to show how to solve F2L agorithmicaly. It teaches the fundamental F2L cases (R U R' and R U' R') and how to transform the complex cases into the fundamental ones. Note that it don't show the AUF between the complex and the fundamental cases so you have to have learned the...

    Finger trick notation

    Is there a notation for describing fingering for algorithms? Like the way sheet piano music is annotated with fingering? My notes are littered with annotations like "(g-rt-u)" embedded into algs (= regrip right thumb on U). These help me remember fingerings I've seen in videos or worked out...

    Kociemba explained verbally?

    Hi Guys, I'm currently writing a paper on the maths of the cube for 'lay' people' who don't have a high level of maths knowledge. One of the things I wanted to do was explain how cube solvers work , so I wondered if anyone could explain using words only (I'll let you have a couple of formulas...

    My algorithm maker software

    After months of trying, finally I could write a program that got all the algorithms may lead to a particular state. For example, to solve this case algorithms are calculated as follows. algorithms are here these are about 10000 algorithms!!! All the possible algorithms are these and there is...

    Request: Skewb Hex / Skewb Tetrakaidecahedron Tutorial

    Edit: I understand that this is "not the place to ask questions," but this thread will hopefully contain tutorials. I am not asking any questions here; I'm only calling for a compilation of knowledge on this puzzle. I hope that this thread can stay where it is. Hi all, I received my Skewb...

    Algorithm Simplification?

    Quite simply, how do you do it :D ? Are there "laws of the cube", a bit like boolean algebra laws (I simply boolean expressions as well), such as certain sets of moves, four or so in length, that cancel down? I know simple things like RU2R' twice in a row cancels down to nothing, or that...

    OLL training video

    I have been using this simple video to keep my algorithms for the OLL fresh and I thought that maybe some of you might like it! :) I could do a slower version in case someone is interested.

    Scramble generating scripts/algorithms?

    Hi there, I'm interested on finding any resources that can guide me trough scramble generating. I want to write a scramble generator script for a lot of puzzle types. Where can I find a good starting point? I think they are something more difficult that simple random numbers. Isn't...

    The Naming of Last Steps

    Hey there! I looked around for a thread on this and I couldn't find anything. I had a quick idea of naming last layer algorithm combinations. I use fridrich and yesterday I got the last layer - FRUR'U'F' and then T permutation. And I thought to myself, "It would be cool if there was a name...

    Collection of places to learn methods

    I've seen many threads asking where to learn methods, algorithms etc., so I made this thread so people don't have to search for individual forums, they just have to look here. If you know any useful places, post them here and they may end up on the list. The list will gradually get bigger, so if...

    algorithm vs intuitive??

    I currently use Fridrich intuitive f2l and i can solve my cube in around 35 seconds on an average.... i want to ask is learning the algorithm f2l worth it???? will it help me improve.. i can currently solve my f2l n 20-25 seconds....

    looking for an algorithm

    hey! i'm looking for a particular algorithm. i can solve the rubiks cube with the fridrich method, but only until PLL. i'm too lazy to learn 21 algorithms for PLL.. so i found out another algorithm that you have to do after OLL. but i can't remember it and i didnt write it down :D...

    5x5 Rubenking edge pieces

    I use Andy Klise's 5x5 guide algorithms. To exchange two edge pieces I use: Lw' U² Lw' U² F² Lw' F² Rw U² Rw' U² Lw² Unfortunately this doesn't work for a Rubenking 5x5 because it messes up the centres. Are there suggestions for an alternative algorithm?

    Faster big cube algs?

    Hey guys. I was thinking earlier today about the algs to solve parity on big cubes. These algs use slice moves, and can do things that are impossible on a 3x3, such at flipping a single edge. I was wondering if this could be used to make OLL and PLL cases better. The advantage is you can use...
