max patcher binary filetype

    Apr 10 2006 | 8:23 pm
    i've just recovered a max patch that I nearly lost in a HD catastrophe. it appears to be unscathed, but its lost it's max patcher binary filetype association, so maxMSP won't open it.
    does anyone know how to restore this association?
    cheers. -Ryan

      If you are on OS X, and you have the "Developer Tools" installed, the following command in Terminal will set the type and creator codes for the file:
      /Developer/Tools/SetFile -t maxb -c max2 "/Path/to/your/file"

      thanks for the response. success.
      i also discovered you can just add the .mxb file extension to the filename. took a few guesses, though.

      Hi, I am trying to get sensor reading in to max from my BX-24 (basic x) microprocessor. I am using this patch and code examplefrom Tom Igoe: However, all I get is numbers around 240, no matter how many readings I am outputing from the BX, no matter how much I change the sensors. I am pretty sure my USB-Serial cable is working properly, and Max will detect when I turn off the circuit, and stop printing out the values, so I don't think it's a com port issue. any ideas?
