If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.

ResEdit is an old tool that has not been updated for years, though it remains in widespread use. It only runs on Mac OS 9 or earlier or in the Classic environment of Mac OS X. There are newer tools that are Mac OS X-native, such as Rezilla, but many veteran Mac hackers have used ResEdit for years and are comfortable with the quirks of this familiar utility.
