the searchpath is something which is usually relative to the runtime,
simply because all other paths are different on different computers.
so it is recommended to use only searchpaths inside the max folder
for programing max.
the same is true for C++ or html - never have pictures or code on your
mac dekstop or in /user/mycoolstuff/ as this will brake when moving to
when a picture file for [fpic] is in :patches: or in :externals: you do not
have to provide the path at all, the picture file will be found just by its name.
but there is a caveat: you must make sure to always use unique filenames.
Reading your posts is akin to stabbing oneself in the eye with a fork. I don't know whether it is some backwards Rundfunk way of explaining things but every time and without fail, you seem give the least straightforward answer.
I'll just put all the images in my working folder then yeah? Safe
