It's all we ask to keep us motivated to enhance the MC IDE
To run MetaCard you need two things:
The MetaCard IDE
You can download the latest release build or any of the in-progress review builds using the Files link at left.
The engine that drives the MC IDE is Runtime Revolution. The latest version is available at runrev.com.
After downloading, you'll need to place the engine into the MetaCard folder, renaming it to "mc.exe" on Windows, "MetaCard" on Mac Classic, and "mc" on Linux. On OS X you need to copy the executable from the the Revolution bundle in Revolution.app/Contents/MacOS/Revolution to MetaCard.app/Contents/MacOS/MetaCard
Even easier, check out Jacque Gay's one-click installer in the Files section, metacard_setup10.mc.zip.
The MetaCard discussion list has been serving the community for many years, and is the best place to post questions and suggestions about the MetaCard IDE.
