They're not all released to the public, for personal reasons.

The ones that are can be found at http://mzrg.com/java/IsoCubeSim/ (at least for now).

How do you open these? My computer automatically tries to unzip them. :? What is going wrong?

Made up my own method (although I'm sure others have worked out the same technique) to the 3x3x4 and the 3x3x5 :D I'm ready for my 337 now ;)

After I learned the basic method, I made up my own method, by try different algorithms, and sometimes I have 3 algs for the same thing! (corners first method).

Puzzle-related:
I played with my 4x4x4 for the first time in a few months, and got my personal record of 1:18 non-lucky and PLL parity!

Not-puzzle related:
I got a SHINY RAYQUAZA in 5 tries!!!!! There is a 1 in 2^13 chance of a Pokemon being altered in color, and Rayquaza can only be found 1 time in the game. So I got ready to be resetting the game repeatedly for days, and what do you know? 5 tries! (Why won't Mewtwo be that nice?)

So close to sub 14! (Sorry for no image, the uploader says that the extension bmp is not allowed.)

14:83, 13:99, 13:17, 13:36, 17:48

Average: 14:06 seconds

I could have got sub 14 if on the 13:99 solve my brother wasn't shouting down a megaphone into my ear. Oh well, I hope by the end of the month I'll be a sub 14er

PB Average! 14:03 Seconds!

Times: 14.06, 14.42, 13.97, 14.06, 12.81

All solves sub 15!!! Never had an average like that before. Cube - My New Alpha V. Legend. Hated it an hour ago, love it now.

I want to have a sub 14 average by the end of the day!

After roughly 10 solves of my new helicopter cube I decide to time myself.
I know it's not impressive but i got 5:08.

And I solved my 3x3x4 and FTO!

First ever non-lucky sub-20 solve. :!:

Unknown scramble, 17.94, x-cross, intuitive VH-F2L, anti-sune U anti-sune for corners, J-perm (so fast). :D :D :D

So, I got my helicopter cubes yesterday. I was so pleased that I immediately scrambled both of them. :scrambled: :scrambled:

Then this morning I decided to try to solve them. First time solving a heli cube! After fiddling about with the first one for a bit, I managed to solve it by doing face centers first, then used a commutator to solve the corners. Yay! :solved: :scrambled:

So, being confident now, I tried the second cube---did the faces, then commutators on the corners, and ended up with two swapped corners. (Helicopter cube parity?) Took me a while to realize I can cycle face centers to fix the parity, but I only know how to swap two faces at a time, so that would take too long. So instead, I solved the corners first, and then did the faces (and then the corners again, as I haven't figured out an algo for permutating faces without disturbing the corners). So now I solved both. Double yay! :solved: :solved:

:lol:

OK, so I came home today and started fiddling with one of my helicubes, and suddenly, I discovered that it can shapeshift... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Now I've gotten into a weird configuration where two of the face centers have the wrong orientation (sticking out) and I don't know how to fix them. :oops: I thought I'd solved it, but really wasn't expecting this!! :?

They don't shapeshift, they jumble. The difference is that the pieces are actually changing orbits.

Attempting to switch from Fridrich to Roux. So freaking hard to break old F2L habits :shock:.

Anyway, after one day of hardcore cubing (5 hours 8-) ), I got sub-60 with it.

You can't deny that the Helicopter Cube changes its shape!

By the way, the "pieces changing orbits"-bit is not limited to jumbling. When you shapeshift a Master Pyramorphix, the pieces also change orbits - but it's definitely not jumbling.

Shapeshift, jumble, whatever you call it, it's cool in a pathological way. :P Anyway, I finally figured out how to change the orbits of the face centers that got misplaced in the process of restoring cube shape. Now I just have to fix the two swapped corners and I'm done! Woohoo! (And yes, you CAN fix two swapped corners without jumbling... my very first helicube solve was from a non-jumbled state, and it DID get into the swapped corners state, AND I did solve it eventually without jumbling.)

Now, we should start a competition for jumbled helicube patterns... :P

I got my 2x2x4 yesterday (or was it the day before?), and of course I immediately proceeded to scramble it. (Well, more like I was admiring the various shape changes it undergoes, and before I knew it, it was completely scrambled.) I tried to solve it, but ended up with swapped pairs in the top layer and the one below it. But yesterday, I finally figured it out! Good ole commutators and conjugations to the rescue again. Just love those things. Commutator = ABCB' A'BC'B' (where A, B, C are arbitrary moves - this almost always gives a 3-cycle that leaves everything else untouched - and when it doesn't, it leaves most of everything else untouched).

The reason why I don't do averages of 12 is because:

1) I'm practising for my first Cube Competition in July.
2) I feel that if someone has a crap start with five bad solves, it's not too hard to get the last seven solves decent and have a decent average.

Today I finally finished stickering my Meffert's mf8 teraminx. (This in itself could be construed to be an accomplishment... there are 732 stickers!)

Of course, I then immediately proceeded to scramble it. :scrambled: And then I started solving it. And now I've just solved a teraminx for the first time. :solved: Woohoo! Took me several hours 'cos I didn't lube it, and it was quite stiff to turn, not to mention popping several times. Also, I took a long break in between to clean up a nasty mess in my oven, 'cos I was taking out a freshly baked pie, and, not realizing how soft its aluminum pan was, accidentally folded it in half. :cry: There was fruit and pie crust everywhere, and I couldn't even clean it immediately because the oven was still searing hot. I had to clean it afterwards when the heat had caked everything on and hard scrubbing was needed to get it all off. :( But yeah, I solved the teraminx afterwards. Aren't I such a cube geek? :lol:

Almost entirely same story. My MF8 Teraminx arrived yesterday and I've been stickering until today (with some sleep, of course). Once the stickers were on, I proceeded to scrambling it. I solved it in just under an hour. No lube, no changing the tensions, minimal big dodecahedron locking experience (thanks to my Giga-Mod), and just 1 pop! (Which is a mystery to me how that happened at all.)

Just one side-note, my teraminx came with one wrong piece. One of the centers closest to the corner is actually the center closer to the core-center. That means any turns on that axis are horribly rough, which is another reason why I'm so suprised at my time.

Whoa, you managed to sticker the beast in a single day?! Took me almost 3 weeks between my job and all the other things I have to do.

As bolded, it took me 2 days. It arrived yesterday, I stickered it. Then today it took me until 4:30 in-and-out stickering to finish.

Or I can do what I did when I lost a piece from my V6- cast a metal version of the piece.

I solved my Master Pyramorphinx that I got last week. :)[...]

Congrats! Was it a full (jumbled) scramble, or just a half-turn scramble?

Thanks. It was a real mess of a scramble pile of plastic. It was definitely harder to solve then my world cube. The last layer was hurting my brain and the last few turns to solve the rotated edges/centers was nail biting time, but I got it solved with out screwing it up again. :D

I guess it depends on the method you use... I'm no speed cuber, so I do an edges-first solve followed by corners using a 3-cycle commutator. The edges in the last layer are a bit tricky to place (since they come in identical pairs, which give room for parity issues to hide in). The corners aren't too bad; since two of the 4 corners are not sensitive to orientation, I just solve on orientable corner first, and then the other (since the other 2 corners in the 3 cycle are insensitive to orientation, so I can do whatever I want with them).

Definitely one of my favorite mind-bending puzzles. :-)

I solved mine fairly quickly by doing it like I'd do a super 3x3x3.

It's my girlfriend's favorite puzzle though, so I solve it pretty often. She likes scrambling it.

Solved my helicopter cube without jumbling moves without looking anything up. :D Feels good, man!

Spoiler below:
Corners first (really easy) then swapping pairs of edges until I saw an opportunity to solve it with only 3 swaps of 2 pairs. Now to jumble it!

Shouldn't this be in the Solving Puzzles part of the forum, and there is a topic the exact same as this.

Oops... Because for some reason the title changed and SuperRubiksCuber1 posted a question, I presumed it was a new topic. I could swear it was in the General Puzzle part.
