SimPlot File Converter for MacOS 1.0.1


About This File

This application will convert SimPlot 2.0 scenario files to the SimPlot 2.2+ standard. The converter will create the equivalent of a scenario setup file. This means the starting units will be positioned, named, typed, and course/speed/altitude/depth values preserved. The scenario start time will be the same as the original. Also, the assigned map will still be usable.

Some limitations:

  • The file created will not re-create an entire game played using 2.0. Only the first turn setup will be preserved.
  • The new scenario file will not include range arcs/circles, perceptions, or bearings since they are not compatible with 2.2+.

To use:

  1. Download and extract the converter application. You may place it anywhere, even in the SimPlot folder.
  2. Run the application. It consists of just one window.
  3. You may have to use Finder, then right-click the .app and select "Show Contents". Find and double-click the .exe file to run in Terminal.
  4. Enter the date of the scenario using the date picker. (2.0 scenarios did not have a date, just a starting time.)
  5. Press the choose file button to select the 2.0 file to be converted.
  6. A file named "NewReferee.json" will be created in the scenario's folder. That is your new scenario file for 2.2+.

Released

Fixed

  • Exceptions happened when different types of units were being converted. The application was expecting certain kinds of data that did not exist in the original file.
