OQO


    Feb 19 2006 | 3:18 am
    I recently acquired an oqo model 01.
    it might be useful for those considering such a purchase to run Max/MSP/Jitter that PACE copy protection doesn't support Transmeta CPUs. This is quite disappointing as it is the only windows machine I own therefore I'm not able to make patches on it. Cycling 74 support suggested using runtime and making patches on my powerbook. this does me no good for objects that are windows only..such as jit.atari2600
    i still have 11 days left on my demo period. let me know if anyone would like me to try to run patches for them to see what potential performance might be on such a machine.
    also, the splash screen is too big to fit onto the display...any way to resize this under windows? additionally, it takes a long time for Max to launch on this machine...approximately 5 minutes. any suggestions on making this a bit shorter?

      That's a real shame, as from what I hear it's a nice piece of hardware (although I don't know what you're doing for audio I/O).
      Do iLoks not work either?

      it has built in audio out, and has usb and firewire.

      one more feeble attempt at getting attention... any news on PACE and transmeta CPUs?

      I might recommend you contact PACE directly with this issue. Sorry that this is so annoying.

      I actually emailed them yesterday and asked "what can I do for a temporary solution or a workaround until it works on my Transmeta machine"? This is the response I got:
      Hello Casey,
      InterLok protected software must be run on a machine which is either Intel or AMD processor based.
      We would recommend the use of an Intel or AMD processor based system to resolve this matter for you.

      Oh well.

      it would probably be good if you put on your website somewhere that max on windows-xp means intel or amd only. i know it may seem trivial but its been a bit of a time (and money!) sinkhole for me.
      thanks for paying attention, in any case.
