OS X Standalone Prog Folder Problem?

Just a thought, My classic apps have a data folder with the .rev file
in it. Could that be where your file path starts? If so it is one level
deeper than your OSX app. I had a similar problem with an autorun win
cd and ended up having to put the media at the root level for OS9 and
OSX but also have it available one level deep for the win file. In
future projects I will know this and always put my media at least one
level deep in separate folders. i.e.:
autorun.inf -- for win.exe file in Data folder
WinShortcut -- to Win.exe one level deeper for easy nav when not
Data -- Folder one level deep
Media -- folder for all media
media.jpg -- etc.
Library1.rev -- Mac library file
Library2.rev -- etc.
Data -- folder for win library files
winLibrary.rev -- win library file
This way all apps can get to library files and media files as they need
to in distributed form.
