"did you know" week 9 video – re-bang loadbangs, loadmess et al.

May 26 2011 | 7:50 am

I was trying to follow the did you know video "week 9" where he sends a bang message to all objects of the classes loadbang, loadmess or live.thisdevice with the "universal" object.

When I try the same with 5.1.8 on Mac, I get this message:

loadmess: doesn’t understand "loadmess"
live.thisdevice: doesn’t understand "loadmess"
loadbang: doesn’t understand "loadmess"

in my Max window, and no bangs are shown (or printed).

Here is my try. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong?:

Your patch does work here, with 5.1.8 under X.6.7…

Works for me too.

thanks for the reply. In fact it works here too — if I copy and paste the above into a patch window. My patch (that I "Copied compressed") still doesn’t work…

How weird is that?

I’ll drop it and think of it as voodoo….No idea what happened there…
