    FMC Database

    Hi! I was thinking about a FMC Database, and I saw that Sebastiano made a website for it in 2010, but it doesn't work now, so... I've developed a google sheet with a database with a lot of information about FMC: Database FMC It contained: - Best method's tutorials. - Videos with explained...

    Lego Cubes in FMC

    Let's say you have a cube that's tiled with lego pieces, like the Fanxin Color Brick 3x3. During FMC, instead of conventional insertion stickers, you can stick other legos on the pieces you want to trace; basically, reusable insertion stickers. I'm fairly sure I'm not the first person to think...

    Roux FMC weekly competition

    So, the older threads made by Kian Mansour and @Aerma kinda died out and Roux FMC seems fun. So, this will be like a race thread where I'll post 5 scrambles instead of 12( because no one has 12 hours of free time obviously) weekly and you have to use Roux only to find the shortest solution and...

    The FMC competition

    Let's find out who can do the fewest move for this 3x3 scramble.The scramble is: D2 F2 L' D L R2 D' U' R L U2 L' D' B2 D' F U' B F' U B R2 U' F2 L. Red is f and yellow is u

    What cubes should be removed from the WCA?

    Since I've made a thread on what events should be added, and many people thought events should be taken away before new ones were added, I decided to make a poll on it. 2x2-6x6 are not included because most people will agree are challenging yet don't take too long. Megaminx is also excluded...

    Half Turn Only Reduction Method | HTORoux

    The idea of HTORoux is to produce decent to low move counts for Half Turn Only Reduction (HTOR) from the Domino state in a reasonably quick and easy way, making this method ideal for FMC. The reasons behind this: There is a high chance for slice move insertions to solve bad edges. Many bad...

    Average moves per solve?

    I was wondering what the average amount of moves used per solve is in correlation with a person's average time? I average about 15-17 seconds, and use on average 55-65 (63 ao12) moves per solve. What about everyone else? If I get enough responses, I might compile this into a table for everyone...

    [Help Thread] First FMC solve

    So I recently learnt FMC methods from the Speed cubing review channel and after some days of contemplation, I thought to give it a try. Here is my solve. Scramble : R' U' F D L F2 U' B2 U L2 U R2 U' F2 L2 B2 D2 L' U' L2 B' D2 L2 U2 R' U' F' Pre-move : D' 2x2x2 block : R' F D2 F' 3x2x2 ext : D'...

    Optimal algorithm for 'spreading' lube around the cube

    I wonder, what's the optimal algorithm (or which ones) to spread the lube applied on the RUF and BLD (wow blind) corners? Is it R2 L2 U2 D2 F4 B4 D2 U2 L2 R2 (10 moves HTM)? Of course slice moves count as 2 moves in the HTM. The final state must be a solved cube. The algorithm must spread the...

    "Useful" permutation groups

    This may be a somewhat weird and vague question, but what how many groups are there that an 3x3 cube be reduced to which could be exploited or manipulated in a solve- in any discipline. For example an oh method may want to reduce the cube into the <r,u> group. Methods that already use this...

    Is FMC hard?

    Hey cubers! I'm heading to my first competition on October 11th and October 12th and I'm willing to do the Fewest Moves Count event. The thing is, I only have one month to learn it and I don't whether it's hard or not. Can you help me please? I also don't know a good tutorial for it...

    A Facebook Group for Fewest Moves

    To all FMCers out there, there is no group specially dedicated to Fewest Moves. So, I decided to make a group. All FMCers are welcome.

    Insertions, a powerfull tool for FMC

    This is a tutorial about insertions. Insertions in Fewest moves are very powerfull. If you try to make a framework F2L-1 (meaning first two layers are solved except one slot) you can try to orient the edges in a few moves leaving 3 - 5 corners. You can sticker these corners and go back in the...

    The New Method / Substep / Concept Idea Thread

    Please read before posting I'm making this thread for all of those ideas you have that are interesting, yet are not fully developed. This is a place to post them. I have come up with many ideas and didn't want to post a new thread for every one of them when most don't get very far. Perhaps if...

    Maneuver and its Inverse (question)

    This is something very frequently used in FMC. Apply scramble on solved cube, solve till a point. Invert the whole thing and work from there. Something like this. If the problem statement is S, On identity(solved cube) execute S M1 (till one can't figure a good path from there on) On...

    Guide: Human Thistlethwaite Algorithm for Fewest Moves - HTA for FMC

    Those of you following the FMC results in the weekly comp or the example solve thread may have noticed an increase in my FMC results. This is a result of my quest to explore the limits of Human Thistlethwaite for FMC. I have now had a few sub 40 solves with a best result of 35 HTM. Here's my...

    The FMC thread

    So I started FMC 2 weeks ago because of the forum competition, and it's the funnest (note: not funniest) thing in cubing for me by far and nothing comes close :D (well, maybe big cubes BLD, which I've quit :p) But being a noob and all in FMC (only 6 attempts so far), I couldn't find a place...
