On those of my apps that use external resource files (art & sounds), I 
"point" to the appropriate file when reading from it (CALL 
USERESFILE(artResFile%) as part of routine that reads graphics), and then 
_immediately_ revert to the "default" with a CALL USERESFILE(mainResFile%) as 
soon as the sound/graphic has been read. It's a little bit redundant, but it 
_feels_ safer.
