Multi-button mouse support would be nice.


It appears from MacOS 9.1 onwards Apple broke/removed resource decompression. This feature was build into Resource Manager to allow programs to access resource fork data that may be compressed on disk but "heats" it into memory as uncompressed data. The lack of resource decompression contributes to why After Dark 4.0/Deluxe crashes on MacOS 9.1 and later systems.

It would be awesome to get this functionality back as this may go towards overall app compatibility and stability on MacOS 9.2.2.
