HELP please

sorry, i can´t envoke this error-message with a special situation, but
more and more often me too is getting the error:

check failed: chainapply

sooner or later max crashes then; most likely when i get info on an
umenue.

maybe somebody of you know the hidden message beyond appliing chains.

thanks klaus

Well, yes and no. We've developed a system that includes realtime
manipulation of complex 3D graphical environments, music, lighting, etc
in the context of an Interactive Dance Club. We are working now towards
rolling out our premiere club in...a city near you ;)A prototype/proof
of concept was presented at the 1998 Siggraph conference in Orlando,
Florida. For the prototype, we were using 12 or so very high end SGI
octanes, running some pretty darn powerful software to do the graphics,
while the MIDI processes were hosted on 5 apple workgroup servers running
max (in a networked setup). In the system under development, the
graphics will likely be generated on rackmounted open GL equipped NT
boxen, with the formerly Max tasks ported to dedicated code running on
Linux machines (with realtime kernels). <plug> You can check out
http://www.synesthesia-llc.comfor more more of an overview on the
Interactive Dance Club itself. </plug>

Our system is completely decentralized, however, with tasks distributed
among machines whose scope is more limited, they just do their "job", but
they do it alarmingly well. It seems like antiorp's (can i even say that
here?...;) process is well integrated and nicely suited to run on a high
end PPC...with obvious tradeoffs in terms of output quality.

The only information I was ever able to get from David Z. was:

Maybe he can be more helpful! In any event, something has
gotten corrupted in your patch probably. You may have to
create it over from scratch. I have had problems like this
before.

Looks like the type of thing that might be fixed by selecting large
portions of your patch, DUPLICATING, and then erasing the (currupted)
origional. Just a guess.

I must admit that I am quite shocked to find out that Guy Van Belle has
been removed from the max list for forwarding =cw4t7abs' mail about her
developments of max multimedia externals and patches/applications.
=cw4t7abs also asked me to forward the message, which I also thought was
worthy of posting to the max list. Because I saw that Guy had already
forwarded the message, I didn't bother to send it a second time, so I have
not suffered the same (one would hope temporary?) fate as he.

are we max-listers not allowed to mention =cw4t7abs just because she has
been removed from the list??

no, I don't mind forwarding this information at all.
you don't need to be sorry to ask - it is rather unbelievable (although
Chris Murtagh probably has his reasons)

yes, indeed, but this sadly seems to be a recurring theme throughout human
history, and I don't forsee that it will ever change.

On a less Dostoyevskian note, it will be nice to finally meet some of you
at CNMAT's Max/MSP NightSchool which starts tomorrow (Monday) evening, so I
will finally have some faces to match up with the names!!
