Anyone else miss the Max 4 loading image??

July 12, 2008 | 2:20 pm

Hi,
does anyone else miss the image that used to display while max 4 was loading? The main reason i ask is that Max 5 takes a good while to load but with nothing displayed at all. I wouldnt be surprised if v5 actually loads just as fast as v4, but with nothing displayed it kinda feels like a long time,,,, or maybe its just me :) Anyone know why they decided to axe the image? It was rather iconic in a good way i though.

Well, few times(during the performance) I definitely didn’t like the
splash screen popping out, so I vote to set one more item in
preferences for this.

One hack for this would be to put this example splash screen:

http://jit.playground.googlepages.com/_mysplash.maxpat.zip

in your init folder(max-startup is neater, but it seems to be accessed
after the init). This way max opens the patch as soon as it gets ready.

hth,
