Help! I’m having problems with poly~ not working
When I open the poly~ help file I get the following in the Max window:
listfunnel: unknown external object type
The problem appeared whe I was looking at Pete Batchelor’s Clatter patch – no audio from the scrubscreen and similar messages in the Max window.
Everything else I do seems to be working…
(Mac OS X 10.5.6, MaxMSP 5.0.6)

By chance max over here couldn’t find the lcd object. Relaunching max dit not help, but restarting the computer did.

no such luck here – still not working…
– and if I double click on the [out~1] in the help file, the 1-Out~ is pink (bogus object?) with 9 inlets & outlets – er…!
– spotted it – the IRCAM spat folder also has Out~ (same name but obviously different…) – ditched that & all fine except for the message:
not sure if it’s stopping anything from working though.

The spat~ library that you’re using is not Max 4 compatible. You probably need to find a newer version.
it’s likely that you have a file called listfunnel somewhere in your search path.

Thanks for the help.
I do have listfunnel, but it seems to be part of the standard Max distribution. The MultiThreading sub-patcher (in poly~.maxhelp) uses it.
It appears that I had another version (in a lloop.externals folder) – I transferred all sorts of old stuff over to my Max 5 folder when I upgraded & it looks like I need to spoend some time seeimg just what works & what doesn’t. Sorry for time wasting
