js Threads in Max 6

    Apr 14 2012 | 2:09 pm
    This is driving me nuts. Is anyone else able to reproduce this or is it just me?
    Open this patch in Max 5 (make sure Overdrive is on), and turn on the toggle. The Max window should say that "JS is in thread: 0".
    Close Max 5 and do the same in Max 6 (again, making sure Overdrive is on). What does the Max window say?
    Despite Overdrive being on, Max 6 tells me that "JS is in thread: 1".

      The immediate method is deprecated in Max 6.
      JS's multi threaded implementation in Max 5 was problematic.
      JS in Max 6 is single threaded.

      Ohhhhhhhhhhh. OK. Going to try another method.
      Thanks for the reply.

      So... Max6 Documentation -> JavaScript in Max -> JavaScript and Threading - contains deprecated information. How to execute any JS in high-pri thread? Is this not allowed any more in max6? Or is there some "another method"?
      best, ak
      PS. A few words at the beginning of said documentation section could save many hours for some of us.
