I’m trying to compile a patch i’ve built in max/msp so other people can play with it regardless of whether or not they own a copy of max/msp server – I want it to be easy to setup and play, preferably no installation required and bootable from a cd
the patch needs a couple of subfolders for images, sounds and movies, when I compile the patch I can include these folders but it doesn’t always work, I think it may work without the subfolders with everything being on the top level of the file hierarchy – but this then looks confusing and it’s not as easy to locate the application itself amongst the files
I have tried a couple of times (with no prior knowledge) and have had sketchy results. I’m using max/msp 5
First, check out the standalone object. Get info on it to see what it controls.
As for including extra material in standalone apps, I tend to prefer adding everything after the app has been built.
Dump everything in the support folder of its parent folder
ctrl-click on the app icon –> choose Show Packet Conents –> dump stuff in the Resources or support folder.
