My research partner and i have dived in to not only Max MSP but Teleo as well. Through are research of this topic and the use of the Makingthings site we have been able to Get the distance measuring sensors to work, for the introductory block. However getting them under control with the use of the Multi IO Block has become the brick wall that we have hit. I cannot get them under control within the flash actionscript that we have. An any time that I have tried to put together a patch in Max Msp that I believe might work the patch cords literaly disappear before i can get a better understanding of what they do.
I have the Basic, Basic understanding of the Max environment and cannot understand why this is happening not to mention will I still need Max?
The project that we have set up is to have four distance sensors when trigered goto and play at random a different SWF file using Flash 8 Professional. Which works at limited capacity with the "Teleo intro module". It was my understanding that i would be able to better control this with Max. However i am very much lost and confused. We are also doing this with no prior experience or tutialage, because we were up for the challenge that are professor proposed last semester.
Attached are some of the patches were the cords dissapear befor i can even beta test them.
