Patch works in 6 but not in 5 - any ideas?

    A day or so ago in thread
    Charles Mathews posted this patch
    It works perfectly for me in 6 but won't work in 5. Same results on different machines. Same audio file. Same coll data. The play~ help file works so it isn't the DSP status.
    I wanted to share this with my students but we are running 5 in class and it won't work for them either.
    I can't see it. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      The "start" stuff is new in 6, I think. This works in 5:

      Chris is correct, the start message of play~ object has been introduced in Max 6.

      Thank you! That makes sense.
      I posted an observation a few days ago in
      that when you "Copy Compressed" in Max 6 the start and end lines still say "Max 5" and when you post this in the forum the marker still says "Pasted Max 5 Patch".
      If this could be corrected in a future update it would help a lot.
      Thanks again.

      Two things:
      1) Why didn't I get a message in the max window that play~ didn't understand the "start" message?
      2) On further testing I had problems with the playback on the max 5 version posted above.
      Here is a max 5 compatible patch that more closely emulates the original max 6 patch.
      Thanks again for your help.

      I don't know why play~ didn't complain. I agree that it probably should have.
      I guess I'm not surprised that there were problems with the patch I posted. I threw it together very quickly. Sorry.
