I knew a bunch of guys at Allegiant back then, and thought that the SC format was not that different from HC, and very similar to MetaCard.

The only problem was that Rev did things so much better in some areas, most of the time it was more beneficial to rebuild the TB project into a new Rev stack, and only use the valuable stuff like media.

There is a Supercard stack that can do "something" with Supercard 3
stacks so that it can be leveraged
for Livecode. The only problem is that this requires the end-user to own
Supercard 3; and, as
Supercard is at about 4.5 not much cop at all.
