Patch Crashing

hi sorry, i don’t understand why my post isn’t showing. I’m adding my crash log as a text now. hopefully it get’s displayed. patch inculded.

Problem,

You may have a loadbang problem. You can disable loadbangs by pressing shift-cmd while opening the patch.

You have a stack overflow problem.
As it’s a relatively busy patch, it may take some time to track down the source, but I was at least able to open it.
If command-shift-opening it is still causing a stack overflow, then it can only be the autopattr – deleting it confirms this.
Open it as text, search out the autopattr and delete it – and then try and work out what it was initialising that was causing the stack overflow.
Good luck!

ah! yes it works now. autopattr is causing the crash!

thanks for help!

p.s. it would be great that maxmsp has a autosave function!

Yes, autosave would be nice, but as an alternative, you can always save your work to a Dropbox folder.
Dropbox keeps old versions that you can retrieve when it all goes a bit Pete Tong – got me out of trouble a few times!
