the offer function – but with floats

February 17, 2013 | 10:47 am

the offer function is very cool. im wondering if theres a way or alternative to do it with floats? thanks for any help guys. i have tried storing a multiplied value in, but the range is too limiting.

here is something i tried, for some reason it is not working perfectly for the X value (its just a decimal off, and i cant figure out why!), but it does work for the Y value. It should send you in the right direction anyway! Oh and yes, the patch is a bit of a mess inside :-(

I figured it should be doable with [coll] and converting the floats into symbols for storing and retrieving. Seems to work fine. There’s the float precision issue (try typing 55.567 into a message box and you’ll see what I mean), but as long as the numbers are consistent, you can retrieve the data.
