    Default Can't get Maxwell to work

    I love the abstracts Maxwell creates but I can't get it to run on my computers. I've got a mid 2012 Macbook Pro which runs Maxwell, but the output to the laser via Helios isn't working properly, it updates the pattern very slowly and isn't playing what I see on screen. I've got a cheap PC laptop which won't run the Sprout version of Maxwell (error 'cannot create directx/opengl interop' ). The non Sprout version runs fine on the PC but doesn't support my Helios dac.

    Does anyone know a way around the directx issue with a cheapo laptop/graphics card?

    Have you contacted Jonny about it? I've found he's always been very helpful with support.

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.
