    Has something changed regarding how external files referenced by a require statement in a gen codebox are handled? I've recently updated a device, and am running into problems I didn't have previously. The gen won't compile for end users because it can't find the genexpr file. Do i need to include this file with my distribution? That doesn't seem likely, and it wasn't the case previously. Is there something I am missing about the process for including this file in the frozen device? I didn't touch any of the code, or change anything about how i prepared the device for distribution.
    I've tried a few different things. Placing the file in my max library, placing the file in the M4L project folder in the max 8 folder. Any advice would be oh so appreciated.

      Would like to know if there's a better way to include a genexpr file, or if the way this works has changed for a reason and I need to just figure out another distribution plan.

      Hey Evan,
      Sorry to bother you on this unrelated thread but it doesn't seem there's a way to DM someone on this site. On this thread [] you linked to a project that allows you to trigger different notes within one quadrant based on the radius hit. The link is now a dead dropbox link, but I'm assuming it was for the MaxMSP patch called BopPad Zones? If it's something else I'd love to get that, but otherwise I've downloaded that max patch and honestly either I can't figure it out, or it doesn't really do what I was trying to accomplish.
      I would have thought that the 6 rows under each quadrant in the BopPad Editor would have done this for me, but they all just trigger at once when playing anywhere in the quadrant.
      Any help you can lend would be much appreciated.

      Adding the file you need to your Project manually and then consolidating the Project doesn't include the file you need?
