from what i know, OSC supports a whole bunch of number types and obviously [dumpOSC] doesn't know how to handle the type chosen by processing. 

i guess, i can't help you here, probably only the author of the OSCx library can. however, OSCx shouldn't be used anymore, since it does not seem to be maintained anymore and is known to be buggy. there is a well maintained and well tested replacement for it in mrpeach, though it might not be as straight forward to use as OSCx.

i think, you could replace [dumpOSC] by something like:

[udpreceive <portnumber>]

good luck
