You can only open Max patches in text format (*.pat). Installing
Cyclone will let Pd create much more of the Max objects, that are
missing. But if you get Max patches, that use, say, a lot of Jitter
objects, you're out of luck. Otherwise some missing objects can be
emulated a bit by providing abstractions that have the same number of
in- and outlets. You still will need to write the functionality of
the missing objects then.
