When I looked at your recent posts and saw that you had three "haha" reactions I was worried Cubable was copying me.

I should really pick back up on skewb so I can keep up with you but last time I touched one I way overlubed it and there's this weird issue where one of the corners on my skewb keeps popping off.

Corners are popping off? I bought the Gan Skewb because my skewb was doing that, but personally, if I didn't, I would find the exact right tensions and glue those suckers on.

I really wish you would practice though because I won't feel like I achieved something if I beat you while you haven't even practiced in a month.

I figured out how to fix it. Under the WRG corner the nobs attached to the screw plates were loose and that caused the corner to push up whenever enough pressure was made from fast turning. I pushed the nobs back some so it would stay and now I just have to squeeze the WRG centers every couple solves. Once I glue it the problem should be completely fixed (And I'd still be able to tension it like normal).

I did some skewb solves tonight and I managed to get back to my old level (sub-8.5) but I still need to work on recognition. I think I can get to sub-8 and then I'll start learning some L2L algs starting with L5Centers. and the moving on to easily recognizable ones.

So I just opened Visual Studio for the first time in almost a month to make this skewb trainer. Basically, it will give you "H" or "S" for Hedges and Sledges, and then it will give you a random "Y" rotation move. Basically, you have to know all the cases before you start, because making a selection option would take me longer than Monday.

EDIT: This will be a command-line process because it's C++ and because I don't know any interactive graphics libraries.

GitHub source.

Maybe check this out first:


It's not perfect but it's probably better than what you can do with the short amount of time you have.
