Hi, this is quite a problem for me. I'm working on quite big project in Max. I'm also constantly making new versions of the patch. However recently I have done a lot of work on the last version of the patch and then something went wrong.
So here is the story - I have made the last version of the patch which the file size was 5 MB and then I have added this patch as a bpatcher to a new patch. However it looks like that when I have added the bpatch to this new patcher the file size of the corresponding patch has grow up to a really large file of 240 MB. How is this possible?
The main problem that I have now is that I can't open the 240 MB patch and save it, so basically my last work (and there was lot of it) is now gone.
Obviously also the main patch in which is included the bpatcher wont work. The funny think is that this is only of 140 KB size.
I think how ever that the 240 MB size is a bug.
I would also like to understand more how Max handle the bpatcher in other projects does the patch that contain them just use a path to the bpatcher and is this why the patch with a large bpathcer in it, is way more smaller than the contained patch - bpatch.
Any help would be much appreciated. I would really like to get my last work back.
