max patcher binary filetype

hi.

i’ve just recovered a max patch that I nearly lost in a HD catastrophe. it appears to be unscathed, but its lost it’s max patcher binary filetype association, so maxMSP won’t open it.

does anyone know how to restore this association?

cheers.

If you are on OS X, and you have the “Developer Tools” installed, the
following command in Terminal will set the type and creator codes for
the file:

/Developer/Tools/SetFile -t maxb -c max2 “/Path/to/your/file”

thanks for the response. success.

i also discovered you can just add the .mxb file extension to the filename. took a few guesses, though.

Hi,
I am trying to get sensor reading in to max from my BX-24 (basic x)
microprocessor. I am using this patch and code examplefrom Tom Igoe:
http://tigoe.net/pcomp/examples/serial-call-response3.shtml
However, all I get is numbers around 240, no matter how many readings I am
outputing from the BX, no matter how much I change the sensors.
I am pretty sure my USB-Serial cable is working properly, and Max will
detect when I turn off the circuit, and stop printing out the values, so I
don’t think it’s a com port issue. any ideas?

thx

anees
