Right, here's SpacePort 1.3.0b1 with automatic rleD encoding (thanks David Arthur!) and other improvements.
Not a big deal, but it would be nice if that could be acknowledged in the about box too.
What version of REALbasic are you building this with, by the way?

Supporting the .rez format would require borrowing more code from David (or writing my own) and I don't think he has PICT support for Windows so it wouldn't be able to do the rleD encoding for you.
Correct — even on the Macintosh, getting PICTs in and out of a .rez file required some trickery. I never so much as had any ideas of how to manage it on Windows.
And ResFrame is such a massive part of MissionComputer, and so different from anything that one would write using standard REALbasic methods. I have trouble seeing how you would make much use of it, short of essentially re-writing SpacePort according to MissionComputer’s principles.
Anyway, wouldn’t Windows users still need a Macintosh user’s help, just to get the old plug-ins into .rez format in the first place?
