Max does things right to left. Check the order of execution in your patch. There are things that are not happening in the order that you intend.
Max CAN count but the intention detector doesn't come until version 11.

I would really recommend reading tutorial number 5. (or 7 for those who are using Max 4). The order of calculation is determinant to obtain the correct result.

Haha let me put afront: I can't much max yet.
I have looked into this principe of last is first and right to left, but still can't explain the results of this patcher, or lay the finger on the sore spot.. :/

You should use floats too instead of integers, especially since you're dividing.
kinda like this:
the [t b b b] object forces the calculation order. [t] is the same as [trigger] and is your best friend for forcing the order of things.

I've tried about everything with the patcher code, but I can't open it. Probably because I'm still in trial mode?

Once you have everything on your clipboard, including the "---------- begin_max5_patcher----------" and "----------- end_max5_patcher-----------" lines, select New From Clipboard from the File menu.
