Not yet, but I am working on updating all of my objects.  I will try to
make it available soon.

Subject: drop the Bomb

I've just completed a preliminary version of Bomb--an
interactive computer graphics instrument--as a Max object. I've put a
pointer to it at http://www.cycling74.com/support/news.html

There is also a Bomb web page at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~spot/bomb.html
where you can also download standalone versions for several
platforms.

The Cycling '74 page is guaranteed to point to the latest version of
the Max object though.

There are a few tutorials included that I've managed to squeeze out of
Bomb's author, Scott Draves. The rest, at this point, is up to you.

Although I'm more of a musician than a lawyer, I think this program
generates images of extraordinary beauty and sophistication, and I
encourage you to spend some quality time with it.

Bomb is really great!  Thanks again to David for porting it.

A few problems:
On my PTP and G3 I am only able to get the pallette to display greyscale
unless I am in heat or noise modes.  I've tried resetting color display and
twiddling all the knobs etc.

No matter where I put the image files (the "put in max folder" folder) I
can't get them to load.

Where does "set-sound-present" look for signal?  I tried to connect with
MSP by turning audio on and setting input source to microphone but I don't
seem to have any effect.

Has anybody else experienced these problems or figured them out?
thanks,
Curtis Bahn

Subject: Re: Authorization problems

Hello Maxers!

I realize this might seem like vamping on a well known problem, but what
exactly is the state of the problems with hard disk authorizations? Can I
install from our Max master disk under various (7.5.3 to 8.1) versions of
the System without fearing loss of authorizations or worse, totally losing
the master disk? It's just that I got our new studio packs for both Max and
Studio Vision, and I'd HATE to lose these to some quirk in PACE... And of
course, there are no explanations whatsoever about the copy-protection in
the manuals save installation instructions...

If anybody cares to answer to me personally, just to not clutter the list
with unrelated topics, especially someone who is also in charge of a public
or educational studio, I'd be very grateful for the advice in dealing with
this.

Thanks
