      I believe on windows that the pictctrl width limit is 4096, which is perhaps what you're experiencing. We hope for this problem to be removed in MaxMSP 5, but for the time being it is a limitation. Alternately, you might be able to make a pictctrl like object in JSUI which uses multiple images, instead of pictctrl.
