Max crash at opening, safe mode opening possible? [solved] filtergraph question

Mar 02 2011 | 4:37 pm


I am working on a patch, where I use a filtergraph object.

I wanted in Presentation mode to be able to either manipulate the filtergraph or float boxes to enter Frequency, Gain, Q… I also wanted thoses three float boxes to update their value when manipulating the graphic display of filter graph…

It’s much like when you use the set message on a Gain~ object to either grab the fader and so set numerical value or enter numerical value wich set the fader, with only one float boxe.

When trying to find a way to achieve this result with filtergraph (if anyone has the answer BTW, I’d be interested), I did something that looped I guess. But instead of having a simple Stack Overflow error, it did crash Max/MSP.

The big problem is that when I restart Max/MSP, and reload my project to correct it, it instantly crashes Max…
So I can’t remove the fawlty connection!!!

Is there a way to open it in "safe mode", so that I can correct the trouble maker, and continue to work on that patch (instead of redoing all from scratch!)?

My first search of the forum prior to the opening of the subject led me nowhere, but having written that post the good terms went in my mind. So I searched with safe mode, and found the solution:

command+shift while opening the file disable the Loadbang. Now the patch opens fine, few…

Still if someone has a solution for the filtergraph float boxes interaction, I’m interested.
