Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

True. Not getting judgy here, I do wish there were a good alternative to LiveCode out there, just to hedge bets. One thing I learned early on in doing hardware designs is "never use single-source components". But if SuperCard can't build 64-bit applications, who's going to keep using it? Maybe they ...

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

Update:"we haven't thought about that" was a bit harsh, yes. I obviously don't know SuperCard's code base. But complaining about being blindsided by Apple now after the horse has already left the stall, when they've had years to gear up for this seems a bit disingenuous.

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

Could say the same about LiveCode's engine source. It takes will to make a massive change like that. LiveCode's team made the effort. Yes, SuperCard can run in Parallels in 32-bit mode, but that doesn't help deliver 64-bit apps.

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

Yep - that's my reading. LiveCode made the decision some time back to rewrite the OSX underpinnings from Carbon to Cocoa and thus future-proof the environment for 64-bit operating systems. Carbon was only supposed to be a compatibility bridge from older OS8 and OS9 programs into OSX in the first pla...

Re: Card Flipping Animation

While I do understand the urge to tilt at those windmills, as Richmond says HC and LC are different beasts. If you do get this thing working (and I have no doubt you'll manage it) you'll probably find that the action is slower in LiveCode than in HyperCard because swapping cards is inefficient in LC...

Re: Card Flipping Animation

OTOH, why bother with cards? Just show/hide the images.

Re: Card Flipping Animation

HC importing is always a bit weird, as you've discovered by having to resort to an older LC version. To start with, now that the stack is imported, I'd set the hcAddressing of the stack to false. That will help if you're looking at the stack in the Project Browser. Then I think I'd move the mouseSti...

Re: MQTT

Yes. Once again, there are no mobile binaries.
You're into uncharted territory here.
You can try building from the source, or possibly google around to see if anyone's been there first.
I have to say I'm not optimistic about your chances.

Re: MQTT

You're going to need the binaries for the iPad, and unless I'm wrong about this, mobile binaries don't exist.

You might try compiling from source with XCode, but I doubt that's gonna work.

Re: Reading MS Access MDB

Simon-

It's been a long time, but I have in the past connected to MSAccess databases in the past, so I can confirm that it can be done. I'll dig around in the archives and see if I still have any of the old code.

Re: LC crashes on importing HyperCard stack

I'm not sure that's a valid way to think about this. There are PRs that are still labeled WIP, and some of them depend on others that can't be merged yet. There are some that can't yet be merged, but aren't WIP because they're finished and just depending on other issues. There are enhancements and b...
