Max 5 problems
Hello I’ve been having problems with Max 5 crashing a lot and behaving badly.
newobj: coll: No such object
I would go the the Cycling’74 folder and attempt to manually open coll.mxo and then afterwards it would be fine using the coll object until I would have to restart Max.
That wasn’t such a big deal but just now I get this message when trying to open DSP Status from the Options drop down menu.
patcher attempting to load itself: ART:/Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/interfaces/Uzi
The only messing around with the MMJ files I’ve done is to install a few external libraries and objects.
I think I’m going to have to try re-installing Max again but I thought I’d post this to see if anyone had anything to contribute…proper care and feeding of Max 5.
Thanks very much!

You said it ;-) Try renaming your patches. Uzi, coll, counter are really bad names for patches because they will override the normal externals.

I didn’t create any patches named Uzi, coll, or counter. I’m not that dim.
When I said that I went back to try to open the coll object I meant that I went to the

I have downloaded and re-installed Max 5.0.5 and without making any changes to the application or files whatsoever
I emailed Customer Support and will let you know what happens.

It doesn’t have to be patches. Anything in the search path, with any
Uzi.txt, coll.xls, or counter.doc would cause problems, too.

If Max says you have a patch named uzi, you have a patch named uzi.
Don’t argue. Go looking for the patch (or text file, or data file, or whatever).
Spotlight may help you (although I think it won’t search inside bundles, ie collectives).
BUT DON’T ARGUE!!!
We get this question once a month and ***always*** it turns out that there was a badly named file in the search path. Always.
Don’t argue. Search.
