Hi Guys,

I'm hoping someone can help me with an error I'm getting while trying to convert from the latest version of XMB.

Can you please tell what files are you using for the conversion?

Fantastic it works :D

Confirmed working on the latest vanilla (and probably last, for a at least a year or two anyway) release of XMB. Perhaps it may be worth offering this up as an alternative conversion script in the downloads section?

Thank you very much for your help Norv, much appreciated!

Actually, the converters on the download page will be updated, but the developers might need some time to check them and fix them properly.
Good to hear it worked now! Eventually, please feel free to let me know whether the attachments and avatars are working, as our 2.0 converters had a few bugs with them.

Hi Norv,

Attachments were not converted unfortunately but personally this is no biggie. Avatar URLs were converted correctly in each users profile, there was no locally stored avatars to convert anyway (as I can imagine is the case with 95% of XMB installs).

The only real issue I've discovered so far is that certain post titles appear to have changed name to a subtitle of a post in the same thread (if that makes sense?). Again it's no biggie but I thought I would let you know.

Thanks for your help!

Kill Em All

Glad to hear you got it working. :)

Sorry to hear about the subtitle of a post in the same thread? Can you please go further in depth on that if possible, a screen shot will help to. :)

If this is solved feel free to mark it as solved otherwise reply with some details of what isn't working.
