Open Max 4 patches in Max 6

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…

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.

my file had no extension, I added .mbx and now it works…

While being on this topic: Here’s a lovely patch which works fine in Max 4 but gives me coll nan’s in Max 6. Anybody knows why?
