cyberboard conversion

Postby MadDog » February 16th, 2010, 3:06 am

I thought I heard something a few months ago about a Cyberboard (.gbx files, right ?) --> VASSAL converter. Am I really Mad, or is this true ? I cant find any links anywhere.....

thanks,

No, there is no Cyberboard converter being worked on at present. This
is because none of the VASSAL devs wants to spend time revese
engineering the CB file format when the last we heard was that CB is
going open-source.

If you want a Cyberboard converter sooner, then someone needs to
reverse-engineer the file CB file format. Writing a converter is easy
if we have a description of the file format. If someone provided us
with that, we'd write a converter immediately.

There is a converter for ADC2 (look under File > Import in the Module
Manager). A converter for ZunTzu is partially coded and will probably
appear by the time VASSAL 3.3 is released.
