I am curious to know what could cause a patch to implode and become completely useless…
I worked on a patch for most of saturday and sunday… I opened and closed it a few times yesterday as a I worked on it… at a certain point yesterday evening I opened it and the entire patch was unrecognizable… most if not all the GUI elements were gone and entire sections of the patch were missing… I wasn’t doing anything very fancy… all GUI objects were basic max/msp objects… I wasn’t using any externals… almost everything was done with subpatchers…the only thing living outside the patch was the background image for a matrix object (which was also gone)…
I am on OS X.3.9 and maxmsp 4.5.7… all my files live on an external drive… could the last save have somehow been incomplete causing the patch to become corrupt?
baffled and frustrated

I’ve had this happen a few times. I think it’s in relation to using the write”message with thispatcher….

can you open your patch as a text file, how does it look ?
sometimes the header gets corrupted and patches wont open anymore, make max crash etc…
