How do you turn virtual cube (like what key for what turn?)

Kinda sus ngl.
sigalig is world class dude. He's Graham Siggins, the person who holds MBLD world record, 59/60 in 59:44 if I remember correctly.
How do you turn virtual cube (like what key for what turn?)
If you go to the about page (hover over the cstimer logo), scroll down to keyboard shortcuts, there is a list of all the keys you can use (don
t worry if you are slow and unfamiliar with the keys first, when I first started solving virtual cubes, I the timer page and the keys page open at the same time). I will also list them here (the keys I use most commonly in my solves).

Can you change the keyboard shortcuts?

I'm not sure about that, I've seen V Achyuthan's virtual cube progression thread and abunickabhi was asking him about having a custom keymap, but V Achyuthan says he doesn't because he doesn't know how to change the keys. I'm supposing you can, but I don't know how or where to change it.

First real solve (still having to look at my screenshot of the key map:

8:29.63
110 moves
0.21 TPS

I normally average 12.5

My first solve took me 3:32 minutes
As you do more and more solves you'll be much faster.
I've done virtual cubes for a little over a month now and I'm averaging 15.

Changed my color scheme to #4 because I think this gives a better visual while solving. Also times are slowly dropping. (bad thing about this color scheme is you can't see the tools words, but grey = single, red = ao5, and blue = ao12)

Happiness. New Virtual PB!

6.41 tps virtual solve
First 6 tps! I've been getting 5 tps more and more frequently right now, expecially after I do some 4x4 solves and 3x3 just looks super easy to me.

Got this yesterday but I was kinda sleepy so didn't post it.
R F' R' F R' F2 R2 F' R 0.955
Orange gives a two move face, and it's an EG-1 I memorized.

One of the EG-1s I know!!!

Right. So CStimer just spit me like 6 scrambles (in a single ao12) that has a permuted "V", one layer skip, and 5 scrams with 1x1x2 bars. PLS STOPPP

Got another layer skip, super easy 5 move CLL

Time List:
1. 0.345 U' R2 F2 U2 R' U2 F2 R2 U'

The way I do this case (assuming there's a layer skip, if it doesn't I would do double antisune) is do y' z2, and then with your right thumb at front and your right index finger at the back, do R2' D2 R [with right index] D2' R2. Completely regripless. And the R in the middle can also be done with R' (with left index finger), but in this case I could predict the AUF so I used R.

18.27 tps 2x2 solve

Generated By csTimer on 2022-05-22
single: 0.985

Time List:
1. 0.985 R2 U R' F' U R F2 R2 F'

Yellow bar was really easy for making a layer, but then I checked red and found that it would give me an OLL skip. I predicted that the J perm bar would be on the back, so I know what the AUF of the J perm would be. Total solution:

x y2 // inspection
R2 U' R' // layer + OLL skip
U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U // PLL

18 STM in 0.985 sec // 18.27 tps
