Alot of us know about the online cube simulator, and it's multiplayer version. Lately though i've noticed that people are hardly ever on the multiplayer one. I have also heard other people talking about it. If anyone here would like to start a weekly multiplayer night or something, lemme know.

Here are the links for people who dont know about it.

Just tell me when and I'll be online. 8-) It's sad that there's usually nobody.

Bleh, needs a custom keymap tool. I never use my middle finger in cubing except for gripping. And it needs M.

Yeah, customizable keymap would be nice. But those keys *are* good, if you ask me. Turning R- and L-faces with middle finger is a really good idea, it's easy to get used to. Of course it's different irl, but it's impossible to perfectly simulate all turns using a keyboard. You can do M, but you need to press two keys at the same time.

PS.
I changed my nick :)

I'm assuming the best time would be around 10:30 AM EST. It covers practically all of the populated world, right? :)

Works for me, does anyone have any objections to Friday nights at 10:30 EST?

ok, this is the second time i've heard about this sim, and it sounds spiffy. so what is this all about? and how do you have a multiplayer cube??

finally, there are keyboard controls? that would be soooo much nicer than all of those annoying java cubes that you need a mouse to play with (it takes forever)

It may take some time to get used to the keyboard controls, but they are really very nicely done. I still wish B and B' were available, but even without them my online times have passed my real cube times by quite a bit. Very fun!

The multiplayer "challenge" version is http://www.ryanheise.com/cube/speed/

I only ever see sub-20 cubers in there so I've almost given up on it. If "cube night" takes off and I can compete with people as bad as me, I'd love to get into it.

Yeah, the controls definitely need an update.

It needs M and E so bad.

W could be M'. O could be M I guess. E.....X maybe? And E' would be ",".
