Using Max with an NES Emulator in Vista

April 2, 2009 | 2:47 am

I am using Max for a school project to generate sound based upon button inputs of Super Mario Brothers 3 on an NES Emulator (JNES 0.6). When I was running it in windows XP I didnt have any problems, but now that I am on vista when I have the Max window selected my keyboard presses do not register in the emulator and if I have the emulator as the active window they do not register in Max.

I don’t know if I am explaining this well, but basically the problem is that I do not know how to use my (laptop) keyboard as an input device to both Max/MSP and an emulator running at the same time.

Any thoughts?

hi,
if you are using key this would make sense – as it only captures the keys if max is active.

this can be solved by using [hi].
you select the keyboard, and then it captures even if max is not active

best frank
