Actually, I saw one poking around on here, but there does not seem to be a link of where to get it from.

That page doesn't appear to have the converter for download anymore. What gives? I was thrilled to see that Demig0d had created this converter, it is just the thing I need, but it's gone missing...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh well, crickets. I see that since my previous post the YAF converter page jonjones88 linked above was removed as well, we're going backward. I finally gave up and paid gConverter (http://gconverter.com) $95 to do the necessary. They did a great job, quick, easy, and considering the hours it would have taken me to figure it out probably cheaper as well. I would highly recommend for anyone else in the same predicament.

Hello.
I used gConverter services to convert from my XMB forum to phpBB3.
They charged my reasonably high rate for the service (at least I did agree). Than problems started.
I had to pay extra to get my private messages converted as well as those "can be complicated".
Also they declined additional conversion during test period.

The reply time to e-mails varied from 1 day to 3 days and the last one happened when I had my LIVE environment down!

I can say that evaluating it afterwards, I should have search for some more support and skip their offer.
Not satisfied at all.

sorry you experienced that and it is a little late but I believe there is a xmb to phpbb convertor here that you could have used.

also , their statement that the private messages require more work or whatever is just plain nonsense trying to get more money out of you.

it is all just text that is in the database. the same process that converts the posts also converts the private messages etc.
