Problems with live.grid Object in Matrix Mode

Hey guys, I’ve been trying to work with the live.grid object to create some functionality with the Launchpad. I’m running into some trouble though. Whenever I run the object in matrix mode, it doesn’t want to send me the data I’m looking for. When I’m not running in matrix mode, I have no trouble receiving the coordinate data I’m looking for but, in matrix mode, none of the slots on the grid seem to register as “on”. I’m wondering if anyone else has had this problem or if I’m doing something wrong. I should be receiving the coordinates of the “on” points from the second outlet, but instead I just receive zeros. Then, when using the fourth outlet which provides coordinate and “on” state data upon mouse-over, I am receiving the coordinate data but it appears as though the points are being registered as “off” even when they’re on.

I’m just wondering if this is a bug or if I’m doing something wrong, in which case, any assistance would be much appreciated.

I can’t reproduce any of the problems that you are seeing using Max 6.1.3 (either 32 bits or 64 bits) using this simple patch:

Could you post a patch and platform infos?

It’s actually all working for me now for some reason. Thanks anyway!
