Hi everyone. I am new to this group, but I have known about MC4D for
a long time. I have been able to solve the 3D version since before
high school, so I was very pleased to find this program. I first
found out about this program about five years ago when I was a
freshman in high school. Sadly, I have never really made a serious
attempt at solving it, but maybe now I will.

I am actually much more used to solving the 3D cube by layers, so
when I see these other weird solutions it doesn’t make much sense to
me. Could I solve it by layers, or would that just be way too
difficult? I want to solve as much as possible on my own, but I have
to start with a feasible plan first. Any suggestions?

I have also installed MC5D, and it certainly confuses me. I actually
worked out in my head approximately how a 5D cube might work a while
back, but that was based on the MC4D interface. They obviously chose
some other way to represent 5D, so I don’t understand it at all yet.
There’s more time for that after I solve the 4D though. :)

In order to figure out the corners, I suppose the best thing would be
to use the 2x2x2x2 cube, yes? Then they will all be corners. Lots
of puzzles to solve, not enough brain power. :-/
