Hi Liam, Amazing patching!
----------------- 1: When you open this patch, are there any "couldn't create" messages in the console? If so, tell me! There are not "couldn't create" on "externs-test.pd" but I found: cyclone/tanh~ ... couldn't create going through examples that use [docfiles/glock~]. On "12_overlay_examples.pd" & "13_embedding_(takes_several_minutes_to_load!).pd" i get: <~ ... couldn't create &&~ ... couldn't create <~ ... couldn't create &&~ ... couldn't create <~ ... couldn't create &&~ ... couldn't create 2: Does Context seem to be working correctly? Try resizing it and shifting toggle floats to see.; Resizing seems to work. I don't know what you mean with "shifting toggle floats to see". Notes: when using "externs-test.pd" if I click on the *lower left toggle* i get: 0-crxyoff: no such object 0-roff: no such object 0-notsafe: no such object 0-roff2: no such object 0-crxyoff: no such object But is not the case if I create a new patch and a new [context]. 3: If the following objects have created correctly, can you call the helpfiles? I can not open the help files. Note: I have temporarily switched off my normal externals folder. --------------- I can not open "00_first_time_tutorial.pd" it crashes Pd. -- Mensaje telepatico asistido por maquinas.

In my case, the "custom search location" was also the folder that the patch was saved into. So it was loading an external relative to this, not the custom search folder. I've uploaded a draft of Context with externals which I hope will work "out of the box". The idea is that if a user wants to use their own externals, they simply delete the relevant folders from the main Context folder, and then the patch goes back to searching for the externals in the regular places. This is based on the assumption that PD searches for externals in the PD folder BEFORE searching in Documents/PD/externals or anywhere else. This appears to be the case on my Linux and Windows machines, but can I count on it always working? Lucas, thanks for pointing me towards the old Extended binaries for Zexy. I didn't realized that they existed, and it helps to keep the file size small. The Context folder currently has 6mb of binary externals (Linux, Windows & OS), which seems to me like an acceptable cost. If anyone wants to test it, I'd really appreciate it, in case I've made a mistake. You can download the test branch here, then follow the instruction in the file "externs-test.pd". https://github.com/LGoodacre/context-sequencer/tree/externs [https://avatars2.githubusercontent.com/u/22167643?s=400&v=4]<https://github.com/LGoodacre/context-sequencer/tree/externs> LGoodacre/context-sequencer<https://github.com/LGoodacre/context-sequencer/tree/externs> context-sequencer - Context, a modular sequencer for PD github.com ________________________________
