Ehrm.. Help how?
You aren't saying which versions you're using and what exactly you're trying to save. Its hard to help as there are literally a million things you could have done.

Yeah i more needed to rant, seeing i've sent them a TON of crash information through the 'report a bug' feature.

But for the sake of getting more people to look at it, my patch looks like ....

I pasted it in a patch and was able to save it as a device without a crash happening.
Is that all you have to do to make the crash happen?

More info is really needed.

What version of Live & Max are you using? And what are the exact steps you took before Live crashed? I assume you dragged the object onto a track, then clicked the edit button, and then what?

Does it crash the moment you click save (or hit control-s) or did you do more?
With kind regards,

Peter

There's lots of ways to crash live in m4l (or max, same instance);

I have issues specifically with:

1) any time Max is open when I try to save.

2) any time there is an active task inside of a js (this will also crash if I save the js with autowatch=1)

3) any time I try to save a m4l patch that is loaded without renaming it

4) any time m4l is feeling cranky b/c it hasn't had its morning (read: afternoon) coffee

I've also noticed a LOT of weirdness centered around js implementation...I have to save an resave a lot when I'm working on patches in order to test things (since Live doesn't work right when Max is open in an editor window) and this crashing thing makes development take at least twice as long.
