This is probably relevant:
Controlling a Function’s Thread of Execution
…most notably the line that reads,
This sounds like it should be the solution!
msg_int.immediate = 1;
Seems to behave differently on Windows and OSX.
According to different posts on this forum.
The immediate method is deprecated in Max6.
Calls to it in JS code will be ignored. Sorry about the confusion, we’ll tidy up the docs.
It shouldn’t crash either, we’ll have a look.
Still on Max 5.1.4 (on Windows 7).
Yes, unfortunately you may be looking at one of the reasons why we deprecated it.
JS in Max5 had a multi threaded implementation which had problems, and when we upgraded JS for Max6 it was deemed more trouble than it was worth.JS in Max 6 is single threaded.
Your patch behaves exactly as it should, both with Overdrive on and off. JS always executes in the low priority thread. Ui interactions also always occur in the low priority thread, which is why you see a difference between the button press and the metro with Overdrive on.
