gen~ bug? in/outs don't show up in max

    Feb 19 2014 | 7:07 pm
    for a couple of hours I'm experiencing a really bad bug. I have 4 different "in"s in the gen~ patcher... also 4 outs... none of them show up at the gen~ object in the parent max patcher. Also if I load up older patches, where the ins and outs used to work, they are "magically" disconnected and the ins and outs are not showing anymore...
    Already reinstalled max, changed nothing.
    Am I doing something wrong or did this happen to somebody else?

      (the gen~ object always just shows one inlet and two oulets in the max patcher)

      i just realized the inputs also don't show up in the compiled code, although they are connected to something

      Could you post an example?

      nevermind... after several hours i figured out that it was because of a compilation error i caused at another point in the gen~ patch... if an error occurs at a point that gets compiled before the in/outs then the gen~ patcher doesn't compile anything that comes after the error... so naturally the in/outs you have disappear from the code and hence from the gen~ object in the parent patcher... this whole gen~ world is something completely different than max/MSP ... have to get used to that!
      thanks anyways
