bug? metro's not autostarting.

February 23, 2010 | 5:52 pm

Is this a bug? When i start the transport all metros with @autostart 1 should start, right? well, it doesn’t on my machine MB Pro 10.5.8 running Max 5.1.3 (41767).

Doesn’t work on my machine either, 2006 MB Pro 10.6.2 running Max Max 5.1.3 (41767).

What’s more, the one in the metro help patch doesn’t work.

use "@active 1" instead of "@autostart 1 @autostarttime 0" if you just want it to start wherever you are.

"@autostart 1 @autostarttime 0" actually means

"The first time you go past transport’s origin, turn the metro on", which is a little bit different from

"always turn on the metro with the transport"

The help patch isn’t perhaps as helpful as it could be, we’ll look at improving it
