New global variables?

Post by jimspree » Mon Nov 19, 2007 11:56 pm

Are the "H" variables just more global variables? Dumb question as I could probably figure this out on my own.. but also a yes or no from Florian. If they are Global... THANKS! I need all I can get.

added new global variables: [g0...g9], [ha...hz], and [h0...h9]

Sorry! Just saw the changelog.

Hehe.. You ever heard of the childrens book.. "If you give a mouse a cookie".

How much money would I have to give you to add a "i" and possibly "j" global variables?

I'm doing some pretty insane stuff as you can imagine.

I think I might have a work around.. I'm going to try to run 2 different instances of MT and split the messages up in MIDI-OX. This should essentially double my global's if I keep the midi on separate yoke ports.

Will that work?

Hi Jim,

yes, I guess that will work, but it'll add a layer of complexity...

Are you sure you need all global variables at once?

And actually, a BIG TODO for later versions of MT is to make variables completely free-form, so that you can invent your own variables, and use real names for them, if you want. Because of that I'm hesitant to add yet more "old style" variables to MT, because currently, the more variables available, the more memory usage and also some performance degradation with more variables.
