View Full Version : problem with the wiimote to max5 patch

07-20-2009, 10:46 PM
Hello! I have just started to play with the wii for an interactive project. The Osculator really saves me...thanks a lot for sharing.

The problem I face, and sorry if it´s a stupid thing, it´s that the patch wiimote to max5 doesn´t receive any data from the Osculator( and the Osculator is working perfect..) I activate the data button , blablabla...but nothing flows... what am I doing wrong¿? And also in the max window everything is fine (no object not found or other report, or error message...)

Really appreciate your help.

thanks a lot.

I had a similar initial experience, then realized that I needed to have CNMAT's "OSC-route" MAX external in order for Max to correctly parse incoming OSCulator data.

If you think you're having the same problem, go to http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/patch/4029 and get the "OSC-route" object. While you're at it, get the rest of the free stuff CNMAT has on their site, they are an excellent organization whose stuff has saved me a lot of time...

The bonus of getting OSC-route is you can now get ANY data from OSCulator, not just wiimote data...I'm currently having lots of fun playing with my new Space Navigator in Max thanks to this...

I have done it before. Should I drop the entire folder CNMAT inside the max externals, or just what it contains ... Because I have done it, and still doesn´t want to work, but maybe I am doing it wrong. Would you mind clearing this question?¿

Thanks a lot for the reply

Hello Andrea,

From the screenshot you have sent me by email (see below), the OSCulator document is not configured:

No data is sent to Max.

Two solutions:

1. You must open the "Wiimote to Max" OSCulator document to get it working.

2. Configure the empty events to send 'OSC Routing' events to Max.
