alot of the time in max 5 when i accidentally create a stack overflow it crashes/closes and i have to restart max entirely.
so what happens if i accidentally have a loadbang do that on startup, or if i have too many loadbangs starting too many things that causes max to crash whenever i open a patch.
is there some option around this or would my patch be eternally doomed every time i start it up.
"Holding down the Shift and Command keys on Macintosh or Shift and Control keys on Windows while a patch is loading prevents loadbang objects in that patch from sending any output." (from the loadbang reference file)
This has helped me out a few times as well! Af course, also be constantly learning why the stack overflows happen and making sure you don’t cause them in the first place.
