Wanted this application since I've been forced to use Mac OS X. Thanks.

@IIGS_User
I'm very glad it can help you. I know you are a great supporter/contributor of this site and the community and one of the reasons for me to make ResEditX, was to contribute something back.

I'd like to keep developing this app and create others. As I wrote this in RealBasic 2009, I can't compile for 68k. But I think it would be interesting now to see how much software I could write for the 68k, using current software patterns. For instance, for ResEditX I used the repository pattern(https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff649690.aspx). And now that we have access to many online API's, most of the application calculations can be done by another system. My Macintosh Classic could literally become useful again.

I really need to discuss this with as many minds as possible, but I don't have time to chat. I'd love to hear a lot of opinions.

You might want to talk to Paul Pratt over at the Gryphel project; his reason behind converting vMac into Mini vMac was to have a central engine where he could deploy to multiple targets. His MPW integration is really neat.

But if someone could write a performant HTML5 runtime for 68k... that would be amazing. It'd be like Hypercard all over again, but cross-platform.
