HC Tips and Tricks
There is a bug in HyperCard 2.4 where some XCMDs do not work properly when a stack is saved as a standalone. Fortunately there's a simple workaround: Open your standalone in a resource editor such as ResEdit. Find 'HVRS' resource ID 1. Change its ID to 128. And the problem will go away.

One thing about QT in a stand-alone: you know the "Save a Copy" dialog in Hypercard that you use to make your standalone? Well, in the "more options" section, there's a version number in the upper right corner. Don't change that number. The QuickTime XCMD looks at that number to see if HyperCard 2.0 or later is in charge and bails out if it isn't.

When you use the "answer folder" command in an HC 2.3 stack it works correctly. When you save the stack as an application, the dialog box does not always show the name of the folder in the "Select [foldername] button at the bottom of the dialog. The button shows, but the text identifying the folder does not. It can be fixed this way: Open up your standalone app in ResEdit. Then open the 'STR#' ID 129 resource. It is a string list with 64 strings. In the Player and standalones, several strings are blank, because they are used by features not present in the full HyperCard (the object info dialog boxes, for example). Scroll down the list to string 63 (the next to last one) and enter select "^0" This will correct the 'answer folder' dialog box.
