PROBLEM please help!

I just started having a big problem with my patch. All of the sudden it say stack overflow and I cant help it. I have booted the machine etc.
It worked fine before, the cpu was in hard use, but fully working now it just wont work.
The patch uses tap.jit.motion+ to detect movement from isight and then sends the numbers to 4 sfplayers to alter the pitch in looped files.
Any suggestions what to do? All goes fine if I only take readings from two of the tap.jit.motion matrixes but if I use all for it just says stack overflow…
please help!!
here is the patch attached

Sometimes even if you don’t add some new objects, just moving stuff around
can create stack overflow (priority stuff). I would try to break your patch
into little sub patch and open them one by one under new patches so that you
can locate your stack overflow.

Good luck

BTW, your patch was not attach…

Usually this is due to a feedback loop in your data flow. Check your
patch to make sure you aren’t connecting the output of an object back to
the input.

Ill have a look of the patch and try to find the problem.

To attach a Patch either zip it (or use some other similar format) or
better even, send it in max text format – your patch still didn’t make
it to the list…

Thanks, ok, so that was the problem with the uploading patch.
I got it working now found one feedback loop.
Thank you!
