sr robert...

im a new member of this site and just recently saw this thread. if i may i would want a copy of your program because i was amazed at how complex and precise your goal was. i would like to share it to a friend who is a 1st year ece student in usc tc here in cebu.

if i may so just send it to my email. gamer_90200@yahoo.com

thank you, i wish you all the best for your thesis and God Bless...

To dotdotdot:
I can only send the executable file. Or just maybe the installer of the program. The source code is to be left confidential; but once the whole project is finished, I could share it to you.
I am also from Cebu, CIT ECE Batch 2006.

To jusay_mitch29:
One year is more than enough to finish the "mumbo jumbo". If I could just give all my time to it, there will be no problem. It's just that, I still have some other academic subjects to finish.

To xpoiled7:
I will never mind bro. That is the reason why I started this thread. To share my work to all the people here, and ask for some professional feedbacks.

Expect that I could send the file by next week. For other interested people, just post your e-mail address.

GOD BLESS.

Something just came up in my mind. Just a thought, and you may just ignore it. So far, my best time of solving the cube is poorly 2.5 to 3 minutes. Is this good enough to be a member of PCA? Hehehe.

to be accurate, most of us are not members of PCA yet, although we're part of the forums. wait for the admin/mods for the announcement. it has been a misconception that if someone is a member of the forum is also a member of the org - - - something that many have been using abusively...

sorry i wasn't able to give comments on ur program but i am sure there were some bugs in it such as when you don't scramble it and push the "solve" button, it endlessly moves...

To marc_rendl:
Yeah. I noticed the same bug just recently. It was not really a programming bug. That was just a result of insufficient training data presented to the program. Well anyway, the problem has already been solved. Thanks.
The training data that I am referring to are the .DAT files that comes with the main executable file. You can actually view the content of these .DAT files using notepad.


To dotdotdot:
I am just using VB6. VB6 is more practical to use for these kind of projects; and I guess, VB6 is my niche when it comes to programming.
Bai dotdotdot, taga USC-TC sad ka? And are you an ECE as well? If that's the case, what batch?


Everybody:
As I have said, expect the file to be sent by Friday. I am still doing some modifications, particularly on how the window looks, trying to make it more appealing to look at, and easier to use.


THANKS EVERYBODY FOR THE REPLY...
AND MORE POWER PCA....

Hello everybody:

I am now trying to send the file today. However, the problem is that the whole package costs me 25 MB; and it is taking me forever to upload considering my very poor connection (dial-up). As compared to the previous file that I sent a few months back; this program has some additional objects and thus needs a complete package installation setup; which justifies the 25 MB file size.

If I won't be sending an installer; most probably, the program will not work; unless you have installed a .NET Framework on your respective PCs.

Maybe, I will just send first the executable file plus the other application files (.DAT, .LST, .LOG files); and try to see if it works or not. Just buzz me if it does not work; and I will find ways to send the whole 25 MB installer.

I will be sending the file to these e-mails:

lazyjohn_1014@yahoo.com
racelis_jerryson@yahoo.com
marc_rendl@yahoo.com
benjediman@yahoo.com
gamer_90200@yahoo.com
xtries9vil@yahoo.com

Thanks for the interest, and God Bless.

Good day everybody:

To those people who received the file, I would just like to ask, if the program works on your system. If it did not, please prompt me. Thanks.

To lance:
I just forwarded the file to your e-mail address. Thanks bro.

To dotdotdot:
ECEs are very much interested with robotics, particularly San Carlos. They have been promoting robotics even during my time. But sadly, my school CIT, cannot compete with them considering that we do not have our own robotics setup. Fortunate for me, my new school has more than one.

Regards,
Robert

Good day again everybody:

Current developments of my project:

I am now trying to connect/interface the vision system of my Rubik's cube solver; hopefully the robot's eye. Using a 300k pixels webcam device, the system seems to be perfectly working. However, sometimes, the camera cannot differentiate the colors ORANGE and RED. This problem though, can easily be avoided using a webcam with better specs.

Still, I have asked under Noob's Area (which this topic is supposedly be, in the first place) under the topic Cube Dimensions/Measurement and Convention, on: Is there a cube brand having a more pronounced colors of ORANGE and RED?


PCA has been very generous and prompt on giving me the answers to my questions. Thank you for that. Smile

MORE POWER AND GOD BLESS!

i havent recieved the email yet.

my suggestion is that you upload it in a free file sharing site such as rapidshare (is it still free?). there are other sites similar to this one. then send the download URL to this site.

here is the link:
megaupload.com UY8MXHRI

since i am using megaupload instead of rapidshare, you still need to input a certain combination bago ka makapagdownload, and still have to wait for a few seconds before the downloading starts.

but as i have said, that is not the complete package ng program. there could be a possibility na di gagana ang program; specifically if walang .net framework ang system mo. well anyway, just try it though.

my problem was, the whole package, consisting of the installer and other files of the program, costs me more than 6 MB. and uploading it any file sharing sites is virtually impossible using my SLOW connection.

Thanks again for the interest.

MORE POWER PCA!!!!!

Just a suggestion. instead of buying a new cube, you could just simply replace the stickers.

or to save you the cost of buying sets of them, you could leave a side without stickers. so, kung ano man ang kulay ng cube mo, yun na ang magiging kulay ng side na yun.
