M4L crashing

hiya everyone,

i have an M4L patch that, when i open it from ableton into the max editor (presentation mode), is perfectly fine. however, when I click the button to enter 'patching mode', this particular patch crashes. no other patches crash, just this one, so it's not a max or ableton issue, it's specific to my one patch that seems wonky.

i can't recall anything that could have caused this, because 2 minutes prior to the first crash, i was in the patch, and simply copied a small bit of patch from another patch into my crashing one, didn't even tie-in any patch cables to the new copied bit, and when I went to re-open it was when i discovered the first crash.

any help or tips or secrets to get into a patch that crashes when going into patching mode would be greatly appreciated.

i have completed the recent ableton and max updates as of a couple days ago, so that should not be the issue. it's wierd that only one patch is effected. even weirder that the patch loads fine into pres mode, but crashes going into patch mode.

thanks in advance for any advice.

/frustration.

Re: M4L crashing

I solved my problem! (with some help from a kind fella over at the cycling74 forums)

Solution to the problem of Max crashing when going from presentation to patcher mode:
It's crashing because of a memory overload due to a giant patch. To remedy, while in presentation mode, zoom out extremely far on your presentation ( you may have to create a ghost object and scroll it down really far). After zooming out, now you can press the patch mode switch. It should open the patcher mode fine. Now zoom back in and and rejoice with the amount of work you no longer have to do-over!

Re: M4L crashing

Nice, I need to get M4L. I wouldn't even know where to begin using it though.

Glad you got your problem fixed. This seems like something I'll have to keep in mind if I get it.
