    In this patch, i have a selector~ receiving int numbers from a dial object, and i get a messange saying that it doesnt understand floats... can anyone check this out? I did the same patch in 4.6 and works fine...
    macbook pro 2.4, OSX 10.4.11, max 5.02

      The problem is really with dial. It seems to always put out a floating point value.
      An int between dial and your subpatcher will work around this problem.

      I think this is not a selector~ problem but a dial problem. Dial is outputting floating-point numbers even when outputting whole integers.
      A quick fix is to have the dial connecting to a [number] object either inside or outside of the patch, changing the floating-point numbers into integers.
      Did the programmers intend for [dial] to always output floats?

      Ah, thats right, the dial, i checked it with a print...
      thank you both for the help,
      cheers
