Wow, these new puzzles are really astonishing. They look really good and the new freedom of rotating them in 4D is really great.

However there are two problems I currently have with the programme:
First of all, please give every puzzle a default setting for "view-scale" and "eye-w-scale" because almost every time you open a new puzzle it looks really confusing and you first have to find some settings in which you can view it properly.
And secondly, the "Invent my own"-tool doesn’t work correctly, because whenever I enter {3,3,4} it just gives me a hypercube which is {4,3,3} (the dual polytope) and {3,4,3} doesn’t work at all.

Despite these two facts the programme really works nice and I think I’ll do my next 3^4 in this new programme. However I have to finish my current solve first.

btw: I solved the {3,3,3} 2 and it was really simple. I did it in 5 moves my first time. However, it seems like I had really luck with the scramble, because God’s algorithm can take up to 10 twists on this puzzle.

Have a nice twist,
