Not yet. I am really swamped with some other stuff.
If I understand it you want the finder ID of the file.
Unfortunately that will not be happening in mxj land.
I would suggest rolling your own name convertor that
takes the absolute java path and turns it into an appropriate
path for sfplay. If there is some other problem with long filenames
please let me know.

I suspect this is the HFS -> HFS+ transition; HFS+ first appeared in
MacOS 8.1. I guess there’s some pre-HFS+ stuff still lying around in
the Carbon API, or something. (I would certainly hope it’s not
cropping up inside Java…)

Is anything happening on this? (for v 4.6.x?) Or has anyone found a workaround?

It still seems to be happening for me (Max 4.6.3 on Mac Intel) and i have a succinct patch and class that exhibits the behaviour (although my way "posts" to the message window ok, but "set"ing a message box comes out wrong).

Any news?

I take that as a "no" then?

(as in, "no support for accented characters in or out of mxj for Max 4.x apart from posting to the Max window" – long filename support should be in a different thread, imho)

Seems odd for such an international application…

As Topher didn’t post anything new on this subject I suppose he’s busy with something else.
IMHO don’t expect a solution before Max 5, unless…
