Do I miss something or is it impossible to open old max 4 patches in max 6?
I just did a quick search but can’t find something…

thanks

There’s certainly no problem opening Max4′s .mxt files, which are ASCII text. I just tried a handful of random .mxb (binary) files; a couple failed with "bad header", but they were in a directory called "Data" so they might have been binbuf data files of some kind. The others opened fine. So: weird data files aside, it should work.
