i was picking through the more unusual of my students’ patches over the years, and have been meaning to fix one that is broken–it is the game of breakout (ball, paddle, bricks). i’ve been searching for 2 hours to no avail, what has become of the [rect], [oval], and [graphic] objects. does anyone know? i recall demonstrating this patch to students on max 4.6; so something has been "obsoleted," or i am doing something very wrong. i kept my distance, until recently, from "seeing" max. (and now i am have many troubles, but that will be a different post.)
it is a wonderful patch-of-patches, and i’d love to show it to each incoming class, as i used to, as a demonstration of especially idiosyncratic uses of max.
if the patches require some sort of manual rewrite using [lcd], then, i suppose i will do it one day; if someone has written replacements that are fully compatible (i now see they are listed in maxobjects.com as for 4.6), i would love to take a glimpse.

I started a replacement, but have never finished it, and its not completely compatible, as I concentrated on the features I used to use…
Have a look at it, its in my abhaXions collection under "Replacements" http://dl.dropbox.com/u/288305/St.ools%20for%205.zip
