Opening Max4 files in Max6 - poly~ and patcher don't find their encapsulate file

    Jan 29 2013 | 2:15 pm
    I'm porting a good old Max4 patch in Max6.
    When I open a patch including poly~ objects, the encapsulated patcher (still in Max4) is not found, so all connections to and from poly~'s instances are removed. And they are lost once I save the patch in Max6. This is quite annoying! The same thing happens with Max4 abstractions.
    Fortunately, this is not the case with Max5. So I first need to open the file in Max5, save it as a .maxpatch file, then open it in Max6.

      what about renaming it (removing the .mxb extension))

      There is no extension in those Max4 filename. And adding an extendion doesn't help. I suppose cycling74 silently dropped Max4 compatibilty.
      Anyway I'm slowly getting used to switch between Max4, Max5 and Max6 all day long ;-)
