(There's no video for HyperCard 2.2 + Addmotion II yet. Please contribute to MR and add a video now!)
HyperCard 2.2 from 1993. The first version with colors, as an optional XCMD!
HyperCard comes back to Apple from a near-death experience as a mis-marketed Claris product, boasting a small handful of desirable updates.
HyperCard Player no more! Unless you really want it. HyperCard 2.2 introduces the ability to save stacks as standalone applications. As seen with Myst on CD-ROM and as did Director with its Projectors.
With HyperTalk being a major influence on AppleScript, it was a matter of time before worlds merged together. HyperCard 2.2 features a comprehensive Apple Events dictionary for AppleScripting between HyperCard and other applications, plus a number of GUI tweaks to help HyperCard stacks look and feel more Macintosh HIG compliant.
HyperCard supports QuickTime through a new Movie XCMD and MovieInfo XFCN. Use a utility stack to set up the XCMD in your existing stack and enjoy postage stamp sized, possibly black and white movie playback on your Mac!
Finally, for localization and the ability to speak in multiple languages, HyperCard 2.2 introduced support for WorldScript. Don't worry about forcing your users to install a heavyweight Mac OS language kit to read your content. Just point them to the WorldScript extensions and they should be a-ok.
