Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Do you need to grab assets out of a classic MacOS application or resource fork? If so, then this is the program for YOU. If you wondering what a "resource fork" is, then this is probably not the app you are looking for.
Simply drop an application or resource file onto rezycle and it will extract all of the resources for you and place them into a folder next to the original file. But wait, thats not all! It will not only extract the old stuff for you, but it will also convert it into fabulous modern formats! Have some old 'snd ' resources? BANG! Now you have some spiffy new AIFF files! Old icons and cursors? BANG! Transformed into lovely png files! As a special bonus, anything rezycle can't convert will be exported as binary files for you to attack with your favorite hex editor!
Rezycle currently decodes the following resource types: ICN#, icl8, icl4, ics#, ics8, ics4, icm#, icm8, icm4, ICON, SICN, cicn, icns, TEXT, STR, STR#, PICT, clut, pltt, CURS and crsr. All others are extracted as individual binary files.
If you find that rezycle doesn't convert a resource type that you need or are having issues with a conversion, please take the time to hit the support button to the right and get in touch with me via the contact form on my website. THANKS!
What's New in Version 1.5.5
Added the ability to specify a text encoding for the source resource file. This will help rezycle convert 'TEXT', 'STR ' and 'STR#' resources to unicode properly. Currently supports Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek and Cyrillic.
Does exactly what it promises
Little apps like this are the reason I wish I searched the App Store before wasting an hour looking for utilities like this online. My time is worth heck of a lot more than $5 per hour!
Does What I Needed
Did exactly what I needed: to extract the resources from an ol application. So it doesn’t have a flashy UI .. who cares? The app works.
