Creator Code


    Mar 28 2009 | 9:23 am
    Hi there,
    Can't seem to find the way to set a creator code for a standalone max5 application... I need to set the creator code to be able to launch it and keep it launched with the keep-it-up software. Any ideas ?
    Thanks,
    Gideon

      you do this with the "standalone" object's instpector.

      well thing is ... i checked the standalone object ... and unless there's a secret message to send it .. it's not supported anymore .. at least .. there's nothing to be found in the inspector, nor the reference files ?

      ah, ok, Max 5 doesn't have that field anymore, I guess.
      In that case, after you make your standalone, you can ctl-click on the icon, show package contents, open "Contents" directory, then 2x click on the Info.plist (actually, make a copy of it first, then edit the Info.plist, that way if you mess it up, you can revert to the original).
      CFBundleSignature
      is where you change the 4 character creator code.

      Mmm interesting .. this does work yes .. but Keep-It-Up still doesn't recognize it as an app with creator code.. Now using Lingon to keep the standalone up ... Not as sophisticated as KIU though..
