Make sure you have the right ftm version for the right max version.
- FTM version 1.7.7b is for Max 4.6 ( FTM.1.7.7b-Max46ppc.dmg or FTM.
- FTM version 1.7.7 is for Max 4.5 ( FTM.1.7.7-Max45ppc.dmg )
- Windows version FTM.1.7.7.BETA.exe is beta.
On a mac, java version "1.5.0_06" is the one you normally have with
OSX 10.4.8. FTM.1.7.7 worked fine for me with Max 4.5.7 and OSX 10.4.8.
ps : I'm not a ftm programmer, just a user as much as any other max
library. When changing ftm version, I just replace the whole ftm
folder declared in my preference files and run FTMInit.command.
I am struggling with installation using a similar set up(MacBook Pro, OS X 10.4.8, Max/MSP/Jitter 4.6.1). I've followed the instructions in the readme(MacIntel ftm 1.7.8) and in the previous post, but when I launch an ftm patch(i.e. FTM.tutorial.1-7), I get several error messages:
error: #T: no such object
error: ftm.mess: No such object
