    Excellent. Finally I can reimport some stuff, which I lost through a damaged max file.

    Thank you :)

    struct heyMm
    (
        thisWork = (niceJob *= (thisWork != easy)),

        (
            for allScripts in yourPortfolio do toolsWeNeed()
        ),

    is this free...or do you have to buy?

    im not sure what this means on your webpage ..." The register file is only available for users of TrackMaker & importGEO"

    Have to buy JB. I have the TrackMaker Pro and importGeo, cost me (donation it was considered as) all of 14 pounds. Get these two, and get the other as a bonus :)

    I don't mind supporting people like Mario with the work he does.

    How can you charge $ for a derivative work of something that was distributed freely?

    The script is free but i adapted and improved the script and just ask support for all my work.
    For example the conversion of Lienz took me two months! only a few people supported me.

    At least it's all the result of my work and not dedicate myself to decrypt files.! :mad:

    Kind of a 'situation' thing... what services someone can afford to provide free...

    First though, lordpansington... name & logo are the absolute best ever.... been envious for at least a few years now.

    About "Derivative Works".... from a functional view, MM's 'derivative' ACTUALLY works... (whereas the the 'original' no longer worked for the task at hand).

    Speaking of which, here is a derivative work called "Shakespearean Logic":
    Code:
    case that of
    (
        2b:question()
       !2b:question()
    )

    Fully support MM in his work, and the changes he makes to make things easier and or quicker. Best part about MM and his work is the support. I've sent a couple emails now to clarify a couple things and recieved responses straight away.

    The product is growing, improving and the support is there when needed. I asked about a merging video, next thing it was created and up for all. Can't ask for better support than that. As I said, recommended, and worth every cent.

    How much of it is yours, and how much of it was theirs remains to be seen. It is, however, quite obvious what you started with as a base and used as reference for program structure. Is a program adapted to work for the next version of a programming language an original work? (I would think not.) Is a program adapted to work for the next version of a file format any different?

    If it is free, Why the need to register? Why encrypt it at all? Zoltán and Peter distributed their script freely, without encryption, without registration requirements for the good of the community. I suggest that you follow their lead (which is some indication of their intent) and do the same.

    How are people supposed to give Zoltán and Peter credit when you've buried their names in encryption?

    With all due respect I am not expert in philosophy.
    Everything you want is a script to import circuits for the MAX.
    You can use the old script that works and is free. Why do you want mine?

    .........it would be easier to find authentic tasting Mexican food on 'the beltway' in Grand Rapids then it would be to find those names....

    Put 'em at the top of the rollout below the version number, then, next time you're in GR, buy 'pantsington a beer.
