Hi,

I would like to introduce you the 3-Color Method, a method little bit similar to HTA but invented more than 20 years before HTA.

It features an unconventional way of solving both the corners and the edges.

Not for speed solving, not for fewest moves solving, yet still a cool and fun method in my opinion.

Yes?

So basically a scramble which can be solved using Quarter turns, is turned into a state where the solution is Half turns off.

Yes. To paraphrase you, "So basically a scramble which can have 1 of 4.3*10^19 combinations is turned into a state where it can have 1 of 6.6*10^5 (663 552) combinations."

This was a year ago. Probably shouldn't bump up threads older than this year.
