Yes but you can't swap corners without swapping dedges, so you still get parity situations. Parity is kind of independent for corners, edges and centres.for a 4x4 you can swap the edge pairs across one face like a T-permutation but without swapping the corners, am I right?
Quoting myself and bumping this question, because I only got one response, and I'm still struggling with this and interested to hear other blinders' thoughts.Actually I have a question about this. At the moment, centre memo is my slowest stage. I went with audio because I thought it would be faster, but I am having trouble getting the memo to stick without repeated reviews, and recall mistakes on centres is perhaps my most common reason for DNFs.
My question is this: are centres (typically 16-18 targets) too much information for fast, short term audio memo? Should I just keep practising, or am I on the wrong path using audio for this?
Audio for centers is great if you can handle it. I can barely do audio edges so I do corners first for bigBLD.Quoting myself and bumping this question, because I only got one response, and I'm still struggling with this and interested to hear other blinders' thoughts.
I'm also considering switching to executing corners first with audio, but I'm still using OP (partly) and I know it's not centre safe. And parity certainly isn't. Does anyone have any tips for executing corners before centres?
Seems that you use perms only, where the centers are rotated in one direction (otherwise 3 y-perms (3*ccw) and 1 j-perm (1*cw) would not be centersave).OP is center safe in multiples of 4. So if you have 4 or 8 targets, great. If you had 6 targets, you could force one comm and the rest OP. Otherwise just use whatever nasty setup moves you can think of and use full comms.
Oh, I didn't know j-perms were the other direction. So Mark, just keep in mind Y-perms do a U' and J-perms do a U.Seems that you use perms only, where the centers are rotated in one direction (otherwise 3 y-perms (3*ccw) and 1 j-perm (1*cw) would not be centersave).
Why don't you use with 2 or 6 targets once the perm inverted?
This was only an example! It depends really on which perm you use. I just know this j-perm:Oh, I didn't know j-perms were the other direction. So Mark, just keep in mind Y-perms do a U' and J-perms do a U.
I haven't used OP in a while, but when I did it was full Y-perms, except for UBR.
I can't help you there because I don't even use S algs for 3bld. Give me some S algs that you think could be better than longer M ones on 5BLD.is there a good fingertrick and is it worth it?
or should you learn longer MU algs
how would do you DF LU LD
edit: bad example because this one obviously 8 move M is better
Do you mean audio or sentence memo? I suspect many people who say audio mean sentence.Is it bad if I use full audio on 5BLD (and every BLD)? If yes, when and how should I switch to something else?
