We've been using MAX to control robots, animatronic characters, motion
simulators, special FX etc. for several years now.  We make a complete array
of Midi I/O devices specifically for this type of control. (Check out the
dinosaurs on the "Lost World" movie, all Midi controlled using our
interfaces!)  Call us or email me your address and I'll be happy to get you
more info.

Subject: QDGlobals...

This is a question destined for power-maxer/external-programmers like
Stephen Kay...

I'm working on a couple of externals that need offscreen graphics calls...
(one of them being a rudimentary music notation display object).

I'm compiling OK, but I get a link error when making the 68k external. The
error is related to the Quickdraw global qd.thePort:

Link Error   : chord.c: 'qd' referenced from 'chord_int' is undefined.

It is indeed defined in Quickdraw.h, and should be defined in MacOS.lib. No?

Anyway, any help would be appreciated from those of you who have made
Quickdraw-heavy User interface objects.

On the PPC side of things the code compiles ans links.
I suppose I could make a PPC-only object, but I'd rather not.
These will be publicly available objects, if and when I ever have time to
finish them...

Excuse my bad english. When we authorize MAX with the software
Deauthorize (?) in the Master disk, what mean the check box that indicate
"Make a copy of the software on the hard disk"?
What is that? Thank you for this moment of curiosity.
