Exactly. Despite of my 3.5.8 master, I downloaded "Sys7" because "Sys8"
is described by Opcode to update authorizations made under System 8...
Thank you !

The VNS does all image processing in its own DSP hardware, and normally
just sends numbers corresponding to amount of movement in definable
regions, via the SCSI bus. CPU load is quite low, although updating
multiple regions at the maximum rate of 60 times per second can
sometimes be a lot of data for Max to deal with in large patches on
slower machines.

Subject: OMS Time Manager

Hi Maxers,
I have been working on a Max(3.5.8) program for the past six weeks or so
seemed to me to be pretty bullet proof as regards crashes. It uses OMS
to start and stop Vision (or vice versa). Today I downloaded OMS 2.3.3 and
Studio Vision 3.5.6. On running the Vision updater, my OMS TIme Manager
(v1.0.7) was overwritten (without asking me of course) by what I assume to
the latest version 1.1.2. Since then (seems like more than a coincidence) my
Max prog has been crashing pretty frequently. Does anyone know of any
conflicts between Time Manager 1.1.2 and timein and/or timeout or any bugs
Vision that might account for this ? Sometimes when you "upgrade" don't you
wish you'd left things the hell alone ? Just gotta have that latest
version........ oh well.

John Williams.
