Will you be making the GAN timer work with just the timer please?

Don't want to use a wire or have to use a smart cube with it...

Hi, Are there other Roux cubers using Cubeast? I am wondering what your experience has been. I am still having problems because Cubeast report the wrong step times for each of the blocks. This time, the problem is that Cubeast could not detect when the 2 blocks were finished. The time for the completion of the first block (Right Block, or the Green Block) was correct. Cubeast however did not know when I finished the second block. Check the animation below. My Left Block is blue and my Right Block green. The block building finished after 37.17 seconds, about half way into the solve.

This was already reported, but I am just wondering if others also have issues, or whether I am the only one.
I hope to be working on this soon.

Main features:
  • solve analysis and playback - multiple methods supported (including Roux), new methods can be added easily

Hi [add name here] :)

If "new methods can be added easily", what do you think about this idea:

Add a method "corners/edges" that recognizes as one step if all corners are solved and as the second step if all edges are solved. AND the other way around: first all edges and then all corners.

This would be an 'easily added' solving method that would help us blind solvers very much, because that's how most blind methods work. I don't know if there is much else we need (since we got the DNF button, thanks again).

I guess, this "method" is easier to add than most other methods, because it has only to check if all edges or all corners are in place, then start step2 and then check for the complete solve.

Happy cubing (and programming),
Roland

Good suggestion.

I also have a suggestion, that there can be a way to let us time only block building in Roux, as a "method" or a trainer. At this time, unless I missed something, I have to finish the solve to get my block building times. It would be great for Roux and some other users to be able to just practise block building, a time consuming step and the main hurdle to better times.

I wish that something can also be done about this problem. It seems to happen once every other day. After completing a solve, Cubeast when run from a Windows PC occasionally freezes (the blue arc just keep turning on and on). And, it seems to happen usually when you seem to have a very good solve, but you will never find out the time for it. The only way to get out of it is to exit. Anyone else experienced this?

Any chance of seeing longer averages like the Ao500 or Ao1000? I just got to 500ish solves and your site has cut 20 seconds off my solve time so far, so thanks for that!

I currently don't have that on my todo list. Maybe someday....

Hi Atteo, I still struggle to use your great app for blindsolves. Very nice that we now have the DNF button (Abort Solve), but only if I have a success then I can re-play and analyze it. But then I had the right memo and right execution. Not really necessary to review it.

But if I made a DNF, then it would be very helpful to show the recorded moves and animation so that I can find my error.

Also for non-blinders it might be useful to play DNFs: For example you could share nice patterns with it. :)

I guess it's not a big deal to make DNF attempts also playable, or is it?

PS: I thought about supporting your app by giving some money, but I will not sign up for this paddle monthly contract. Maybe one day there is an easier way like Paypal - without an extra contract for each website, podcast, app, or whatever I want to support...

Use https://www.trainbld.com/ for blind. It's still in early stages but works very well and posts your solve to cubedb for review.

Cubeast is an amazing program but can't be everything for everyone. A lot of work for one person.

Edit... ugh hating posting on a phone

I know. But I only ask for minor changes, not a 3bld reconstructor.

Thank you anyway for telling me about trainbld.com. Unfortunately it does not find my Gan Monster Go and also does not connect to my Gan i Carry smart cubes. And my Gan i2 makes tooo many desync errors, so that it makes no sense to try.

Yeah. I've had it on my todo list for a while. I'll get to it when I can.

My stackmat doesn't connect to Cubeast, but it was just working fine with CStimer. Is there something different I should be doing?
