How did you know it was my birthday today Andrey?!

(seriously it is - 21st)

I am unfortunately at my lakehouse in the middle of nowhere and do not have a computer with Internet access so I can’t look at what sounds like an incredible program quite yet, but I am dying to test it out!

Thank you so much for creating these. I suspect the 24Cell will be my all time favorite puzzle ;)

Hiding of mirrored blocks during animation is in my todo list, and rotation of cell outline has very low priority (probably zero). There are some things that I have to do: timer, twist counter, optimization and recalculation, testing of log save/load commands, library file for puzzles (instead of many separate txt files), computation of main symmetry groups for 4D, and so on…
