y2 x' F' R' D2 R2 D' R B//XXcross

This was a feet solve so there were more rotations and stuff in reality

R2 U2 F2 U' F2 R2 D2 B2 R2 D B2 F' L2 F L' U B' F2 U

y2 x' F' R' D2 R2 D' R B//XXcross

This was a feet solve so there were more rotations and stuff in reality
y2 x' F' R' D2 R2 D' R B// XX-cross (7/7)
y U' R' U2 R U' R' U R // 3rd Pair (8/15)
U' R U R' U' R U y R U' R' U' F' // 4th Pair + EO (12/27)
R' U2 R' D' R U2 R' D R2 U2 // ZBLL (10/37)

You can also cancel into OLL(CP) and from there cancel into PLL like this:

y2 x' F' R' D2 R2 D' R B// XX-cross (7/7)
y U' R' U2 R U' R' U R // 3rd Pair (8/15)
U' R U R' U R (U R') // 4th Pair (8-2/21)
(R U) U R2 F R F' R U2 (R') // OLL (10-3/28)
(R) R U' R' U' R U R U R U' R // PLL (12-1/39)

Not sure if that is how you are supposed to write cancellations, but I would guess the point came across.

I just got a 6.78 on this and I average low 20...
(0, -1)/(-3, 3)/(4, -5)/(5, -4)/(3, 0)/(-2, -3)/(6, 0)/(3, 0)

(3, 0)/
(2, 2)/(1, -2)/(-1, -1)/(4, 1)/(-1, -1)/(-2, 1)/(0, 6)
(-2, 0)/(3,-3)/(-3, 0)/(0, 3)/(0,-3)/(0, 3)/(2, 0)
what even

y2 x' F' R' D2 R2 D' R B//XXcross

There were actually 2 xxcrosses in that solve I did the U face... One of the lowest in-solve move counts ever for me...

Reconstruction

X2 // Inspection

D' L' F2 L2 F' L y2 L' U L F2 // XX-Cross

U' L' U L U2 F' U F // 3rd Pair

y' U2 R U2 R' U2 R U R' // 4th Pair

U l' U' L U' L' U2 l // OLL

R' U R' U' R' U' R' U R U R2 // PLL

45 Moves 8.96 secs = 5.02 TPS a very finger trick friendly solve, but I locked a little...

Right this 2x2 scramble is crazy: F U R U' F U F' R' U'

layer done for you and oll same as cll. 6 mover. But I got 3.09 cuz i literally whacked the space bar and it didnt work. not good

D2 B' R2 B' L2 R2 B D2 F2 D2 U2 L F' R U2 F' U F L F' R

"half" of cube is done and most crosses already have 2 or 3 edges correct and a 1 move orange cross.
sad that I'm not color neutral, i only do white/yellow i got 18.76, (see signature for comparison with pbs and stuff). the solve wasn´t too easy tho.

edit:
pbs at post date (if its read long after): single 13.90 7 move LL (Fw sexy Fw´ U), mo3 17.94, ao5 18.98, ao12 20.76, ao25 21.51, ao50 21.94, ao100 22.44, ao500 23.12, ao1000 23.41, master skewb 4:37.44,

PB by a mile. And an incredibly stupid scramble.
What can everyone else do?

R2 U' R U x (U' D') L' U L (D U2) r U R'// F2B (12/12)
U R U R' U' R' F R F'//CMLL (9/21)
U2 M U' M U M2 U' M2 U2// (9/30)
30/5.55= 5.45 tps

Can anybody do something with this funny scramble? There's a yellow cross already done but with 2 edges swapped (red & blue) and 3 already formed F2L pairs which, of course don't seem easy to preserve (maybe just one or two?).

I know this isn't that uncommon but these are the first two lines of a megaminx scramble I got:
R++ D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ U'
R++ D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ R++ D++ R-- D-- U

Wow! Impressive! 14 move F2L. Not only preserving the 3 pairs but also getting an easy 3-move insert for the 4th. Thanks a lot. Also thanks to all of you who replied with very interesting solutions!
