  • Many thanks to Jaap Scherphuis for his JavaScript 2x2 solver and pyraminx scrambler. This is allows short random-state scrambles to be generated for the 2x2x2 cube and Pyraminx. Thanks also for his square-1 scramble program.


  • How do I start and stop the timer?
    Press and hold space. When it is released the timer will start. The timer will then stop when space, or any other alphanumeric key is pressed. The timer can also be started and stopped by clicking over the main time display.
  • How do I generate scrambles for other puzzles?
    Click over the scramble and select the puzzle from the popup menu.
  • How do I set the time to a +2 penalty, DNF, or remove it altogether?
    Click on the 'times' tab, and then click over the most recent time.
  • How do I hide the tab contents?
    Click over the link for the currently selected (bold) tab.
  • How do I remove logged times?
    Click on the 'times' tab and then click over the time to remove.
  • Does cTimer generate statistics on my times?
    Yes, click on any tab. Statistics appear at the top of each tab window.
  • What do the abbriviated headings in the statistics represent.
    # = solve number, bs = best time, a5 = best/current average of 5, a12 = best/current average of 12, av = overall average, ws = worst time, sd = standard deviation.
  • What is 'standard deviation'?
    It gives a measure of your consistency. In cTimer it is presented as a percentage of the average. Closer to 0% means your times are more consistent.
  • How do I clear the time log?
    Click on any tab and click the 'reset' link in the top right.
  • How can I see which times correspond to averages of 5, 12 etc?
    Click on the 'times' tab and click on the associated statistics heading, for example 'a12'. This will highlight the times in the time tab. Click on the 'av' heading to un-highlight the average.
  • How can I view my last scramble(s)?
    Click on any tab and click on the 'av' heading twice. This will display all scrambles and their corresponding times in a pop up window.
  • How do I enable random-state scrambles?
    Random-state scrambles are enabled by default for the 2x2x2 cube and pyraminx. In this stripped down version of cTimer, random state scrambles are not avaiable for 3x3 cubes or above.
  • How do I set the timer to count down my inspection time?
    Click on the 'options' tab and enter a value in seconds for inspection. Standard WCA inspection is 15 seconds.
  • How does the inspection time feature work?
    Press space to start the inspection count down. When you have finished inspection, press space again to start the timer. Once the inspection time has passed a further 2 seconds is given. If inspection is completed within these 2 extra seconds a time penalty of 2 seconds will apply (denoted as a '+' symbol after the time). If the timer is not started after the inspection time plus 2 seconds, then the result is a DNF.
  • How do I turn the inspection feature off?
    Click on the 'options' tab and set the inspection time to 0 sec.
  • I noticed a bug in the program, how do I report it?
    Send an email to the author using this contact form. Please be sure to include a description of how to reproduce the error.
  • I would like a feature to be added to the timer.
    Features may be requested via the author's contact form (link above). Any planned features will be added to the planned features list below...
  • Is weeTimer open source?
    Currently the code is not licensed as open-source and is subject to copyright. This means permission is not given to modify the source. The code may eventually be open-sourced once it has been better developed and tested.
