Forum User's Max Version

Hi all,

Just a quick idea for the forum. How about in a user’s profile we have an option to select which Cycling ’74 products and versions we own/use. Then this can be displayed next to a username in the forum when posting (or hidden if the user doesn’t want to make it public). It’s mainly for selfish reasons as I keep getting disappointed when pasting compressed files in to Max5 only to find they use something only available in Max6 and I can’t use them at all.

Any thoughts?

yes please.

and also an option to email others privatly, like we had in 2006.

You can see which version was used in the blue highlight when a patch is pasted in a (some?) posts.

– Pasted Max 5 Patch, click to expand. —


– Pasted Max 6.0.4 Patch, click to expand. –

That’s strange…i just posted a patch in another post here with max 6.0.3 and appear like “– Pasted Max 5 Patch, click to expand. –” Could be a conflict because i have both 5 and 6 versions?….

My patches show up as Max 5 patches when I paste them, too. And I don’t have Max 5 on my system. I have a suspicion that if a patch contains no Max 6 specific features, it can be opened in Max 5 and the code is marked as such. It’s just a guess, but I’m a software engineer and that’s what I would do.
