yes, it will work just fine. nothing was changed in the push scripts from 9.0.5 to 9.0.6. my bad for not updating the docs!

however, 9.1 will require a new version of seapush. i should have that ready before the official 9.1 release.

Before updating to 9.1 will it be necessary to replace the original push script or will it be written over?

Just to be clear, .. Currently running the Seapush script, I can do the 9.1 update (when available) and then apply the new updated Seapush script once released? Thanks.

Correct. When you install 9.1, it will over write the Seapush script, you will no longer be able to use it until these guys update it. Once they do, easy enough to copy it back to the app and use the new version though.

thus, the gist of it is: before updating to a version of live that changes the SkinDefault.pyc file, you need to restore the original version of the folder (or at least remove the seapush file); thus auto-updates should be disabled.

(I made this mistake when updating to 9.0.5 - I had a backup of my OLD push folder but no copy available of the new version of SkinDefault.pyc, which had been overwritten by the presence of my (now out-of-date) 9.0.4 version of seapush. so to fix it i had to download a fresh copy of live in order to get the updated files. i then had to wait for someone (i.e. drez) to decompile the new file so i could update seapush, which is when i decided to share it.)
Thanks.
I just reread this earlier post by triant which is why I'm still a little confused.. just trying to head off a collision. I guess for safety sake it's wise to replace the default file/folder, at least until someone reports different.

I think an easy solution to this would be to just rename the left over .py file after you changed the color scheme (and before you up-date Live!) to something like seapushSkinDefault.py.
This way it will not hinder the new SkinDefault.py to be overwritten by Ableton, and if it turns out to be compatible you just rename the seapushSkinDefault.py to SkinDefault.py, so that it can NOW rewrite the Abletons overwritten SkinDefault.pyc.

It would be nice to have the Seapush template for 9.1, but wouldn't every new beta they release break the script?

Hard to say. I'm "guessing" that it's safe for 9.1 at this point. :wink:
