I found this on Heise website. I've been practicing for about a day and my best time is 1:18.66. I posted the record because it was my great 2 minute break. I clearlly do not know the keys very well. It's really hard to get used to the keys but it is much faster than a click and drag cube.

I practise it a lot. Just the multiplayer one, though. I usually average around 18-19 and my PB is 11.90 without luck. Anthony Hsu uses Petrus, too, and is really fast. 13.49 sec average is something to be proud of...

yeah I saw your record. I'm still working on the keys. I tend to get F and U turns mixed up.

Do you always solve Step 4 with RF instead of RU?

on a real cube I do RU but the keys are easyer with FR. the way you did it looks perfect because you don't have to rotate the cube at all.

new record for me. 50.50

when are you online?

just wondering... do you get midnight sun where you are?

It's GMT+3 here, and I will be online from around 11am to 9pm, unless I have something else to do. If I'm not there, you can email me and wait a few minutes, I check it very often.

This is a pretty addicting game. Easily the best online cube. I practiced it for about an hour and got down to about 50 sec average. I find it extremely hard to do my pll algs because I memorized them all by feel, so I find I get lost a lot and have to restart LL. Any tips?

Know your LL algs better. So many people just blindly memorise their algs. But if someone asked you to tell them your alg a lot of people can't, it bugs me.

I haven't practiced doing r and l turns on Ryan's simulator enough to execute some of my PLL algs. If I get to one I can't do quickly, I typically just fire off another quick PLL alg and hope that the resulting case will be one I'm comfortable with.

I've been playing with that simulator a few rounds on my lunch breaks for a month probably and I'm now sub-30 on there, which is just about where I am with the real cube. Fun! Too bad the guys that are doing to head-to-head challenges are all sub-20... I'd love to compete with some people in my range.

I don't learn algs by feel. I wacth where the blocks are going and how they are being put back together. I am almost sub 30.
