 Post subject: Needing help with 3x3x4 algorithmsPosted: Fri Feb 08, 2013 10:49 pm

I got a C4U 3x3x4 yesterday, and have been using a mix of 4x4/5x5 algorithms and algorithms from the following location:
http://myplace.frontier.com/~dhrm77/rub ... solve.html
However, I've come across a problem. The third 'swap 3 edges' algorithm doesn't do what it should. Does anyone know an alternate method?
Any help would be appreciated

Edit: On a side note, this puzzle is absolutely phenomenal, though I probably ought to tighten it just a smidgen
Edit 2: If anyone has a printout for 4x4 parity (beginners preferred as I have only just started learning F2L), that would be appreciated as well. I found one a few weeks ago but forgot to print it and now I cannot find it.

That seems like quite a difficult way to go about solving it.

Unless you especially want to solve it that way, I'd suggest learning regular 'Cuboid algorithms' They will stand you in good stead for other fabulous cuboid puzzles too. Try my tutorial

Well I only solved it once and I figured on my first go I'd try it by myself. Now that I've done it once I'll take a look at your tutorial. I looked at other tutorials but didn't quite like any.
