As stated in previous posts I am about to embark on a masters final project which will be to test theories of immersion by creating a simple gesture game.
I have got my hands on a ms kinect but as I am running windows 8 am a bit concerned on how it will work with maxmsp. I noticed on the jit.freenect.grab it states that,
"The latest version of jit.freenect.grab is "Release Candidate 5", which was released on 2012-3-7. The object requires Max 5 with Jitter and only runs on Intel Macs with OS 10.5 or later."
Is there are way of making the kinect work with max/msp on windows 8?
All the best,
The dp.kinect external is much more featured than freenect and still being updated by diablodale. Have you checked that?
Thanks for the reply,
Nope I have not checked that out, I will do right now.
Did you find a solution on how to run it on windows 8?

Hey Joe J
Your post is the only reference I can find for this messa that Kinect+Msp+CrappyWindows8 is… is there any hope for us? I’m working around the workarounds, but I don’t know if someone ever succeeded.
