In the past week, I have been genning waterman algorithms to solve the Last R edge and Edge Orientation
These algs are most useful in simplified waterman.
Here they are, there are 31 algs: https://docs.google.com/document/d/124HnNsboCoelm9NAjVi68JFgRFqrzp-WtRJNuTd7FOg/edit?usp=sharing
So, to practice PyQt5, I decided to make a simple Lights Out game for practice, which made me think of methods for it. Right now I just "drag" the light to one side, but I can't do anything with it from that point. So i thought it would be interesting to explore its methods and algorithms.
I've had this idea, starting from when I started trying out ZZ. I want to try to make a program (With help ofc) that crunches through every possible 2-look ZBLL method (Or would it be 2-look EO LL method, correct me on my terminology) to find the best one. So it would test methods like...
As the title suggests, I will be learning 300 algorithms in 300 days.
Feel free to let me know if there are any other alg sets that I should be aware of to add to the list. (You can join in on my facebook page and learn the algs with...
Long overdue update!
The site popularity is growing, and many of you shared meaningful feedback in the last 2 years. Thank you for your continuous engagement and sharing areas of improvements that matters to you. Let's take a look at the latest...
For those of you that are interested in practicing the first layer on skewb or learning / drilling NS or Advanced algs for the last two layers, I created an offline tool (.exe) to help with that: SkewbSkills. It features a timer and you can select whatever types of algs you want to practice, or...
Out of curiosity I was thinking about if megaminx had a bunch of alg sets like 3x3x3 since they are relatively similar to solve. During my research I could only find full oll almost full pll(still in progress) ell and cll for 3 cycle corners. Why has megaminx not developed a bunch like 3x3x3...
Some days ago I found a shourcut in a 4x4 OLL. The alg is simple:Rw U2 Rw' Lw' U2 Lw Rw U2 Rw2 U2 Rw2 F2 Rw. I found out that a simmilar method exists for when you have parity, but my question is: does this method completly exist? A new way of doing 4x4 OLL. I know sunes will stay sunes, but dot...
I am currently developing an all around solving algorithmic app. I find that there is no single app with all know algorithms, and all methods easily accessible. I was wondering if anyone would like to contribute possible app names, art, and other ideas.
I feel like there's a trigger that hasn't gotten much love: R U R' F'. This trigger can be done fairly fast. Because of that, decided to play around with it, a lot. What I've found quite a few cool algs that can be done by conjugating stuff with this trigger which I'll be calling "yay" and it's...
Folks, I have decided to embark on possibly the most difficult speed cubing accomplishment out there.
I'm going to learn full ZBLL.
My goal is to learn at least one algorithm per day on average.
At this rate it'll take me 1 - 2 years to learn the whole bit.
I've got 493 algorithms...
Solving the first two layers of a Rubik's Cube is very intuitive. One can watch the algorithms in action and see exactly why they work. However, when using known algorithms to solve the third layer of a Rubik's Cube, they seem to just work by magic, with no explanation. Is there a way to explain...
Two years ago - I launched Sune timer right here on speedsolving.com forums.
Throwback to that: https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/showthread.php?43519-New-android-App-Any-Thoughts&highlight=sune+timer
Since then, I've become a significantly better programmer. This...
Last night, I finished putting together a downloadable PLL guide, with algorithms and performance notes for all 84 angles. It's a PDF containing internal hyperlinks for nonlinear use. The algs I curated are a combination of:
(a) algs I've come up with, either on my own or by using Cube...
Yes, I have done it! I have found every non-Sune/antiSune COLL by hand, with no computer!
I have the algorithms here. I also have included my recognition method, which I also figured out myself.
Enjoy! I will include access to alg.cubing.net playback soon.
the 3 color 3x3x3 that has yellow opposite yellow, red opposite red, blue opposite blue can be solved using a different set of algorithms. I did not find a thread for this so I made one. there are 4 of each edge. there are 3 unique edge color combinations. there are 4 of each corner piece. there...
Lately I've been generating a lot of algorithms, not so much for practical use, but rather just for the fun of it.
I decided with Robert Yau to generate the whole LL-set for a bad OLLCP case (12 algs) mainly because I was bored and had winter break. This was...
I am new to cubing in general. Most of the cubes I own solve like a 3 x 3 or something pretty similar. The only cube I have that has a fairly different structure is the Skewb. I did use a tutorial to start solving the 3 x 3 puzzles. After that, I started making my own algorithms in the form of...
