Learn Roux?


We are announcing our site in order to get feedback directly from the cubers.

Our site is not 100% done, but I am constantly updating the site and making video's to improve the learners experience.

We would really appreciate constructive criticism, mainly on our way of explanation.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As of this minute, you will find on our page:

-An introduction to the Roux method
-Written and video explanation of each sub-step of Roux.
-Miscellaneous page where we have a 'Sub-12 Guide' and some Team BLD Codes we are working on.
-And a Chat/Shoutbox page.

I plan on expanding the website, in order to get as much information on the Roux Method.

Thanks -PandaCuber.

To visit our website, you can click where it says "Learn Roux?" Or right here,

Great site, one question though, on the cmll page it says that you can do a diagonal swap when all of the corners are oriented with a T-Perm or a J-Perm, I do not understand how this is possible considered both of these algs swap adjacent corners. I have been using Y-Perm for this case. Can you please explain how to use T or J Perm in this case?

Oops I totally forgot about the Y-perm :/ , Yes, use Y-perm.

But on the side note, Im actually making a 2lookCMLL chart thats much more beginner friendly.

Tried to view some of the videos but it says they are private and I cannot view them.

Other than that I like the site.
That was my fault, sorry. I deleted a lot of my videos a while ago.
Ill make new ones now that im more experienced.

Nice. This actually motivated me to give it a try. Block building is pretty straight forward but it takes me far too long to find pieces. It would take me ages to get fast at this method even though it is more fun.

I laughed at myself when I noticed that during block building, I was frantically searching for pieces in the top and middle layers only. I had this real "duh!" moment when I finally found them ;)

Dont worry about your time, if you practice roux, your times will drop very fast(happened to me).

Yeah might help if you look at the M slice...LOL.

I think he meant the D face... half of the M slice edges are on the top layer. "top and middle layer only"

Exactly. I'm too used to the D edges being correctly orientated after doing cross so I instinctively ignore the pieces in those positions.

I'll try learning the full method just for fun though and I'll see where it takes me. I've spent too much time on my current method to abandon it at this stage.
