I don't know if anyone is interested....
But I have managed to convert a vB4.0.2 board to phpBB3 - just by changing a couple of lines in the 'convert_vb30' file (specifically a couple of field names) - and also deleting a couple of lines.
(This is all based on Dicky's vb3.x converter)
It DOES NOT convert the attachments (I have 261) - but because of that I am prepared to deal with that later - the most important thing for me was to get away from vB4 - It has practically ruined all the work I have done for the last 3 years...hey-ho - the seniors/admins don't seem to care there anyway - you just get 'smug' replies to genuine questions - seems like they have a chip on their shoulders when it comes to criticism..
...Anyway, I haven't learn how to do all the fancy 'mod' stuff yet and I have merely 'edited' Dickys work - to whom I am eternally grateful.
I simply copied and overwrit the '/public_html/install/convertors' file called 'convert_vb30.php' with the one I've attached here..
(It needs to be re-named to 'convert_vb30.php')
YOU MUST FOLLOW Dickys ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS and overwrite this file last - before you install.
If in doubt - DONT DO IT
ps I hope someone cleverer than myself can do this so that attachments can be transferred/converted over to your new php site/forum.
