File Description: FSX2FS9 is a utility based on the ScruffyDuck Scenery Design Engine. It allows users to convert Airport Files designed for FSX for use in FS9. The program provides user control over the conversion process including selection of elements to be removed prior to conversion, handling of vehicle path networks and handling of those items in the FSX file which would cause the FS9 compiler to fail. The user also has the choice of whether to allow the program to automatically fix and faults found or to use the built in fault finder for more control. The program uses the Microsoft FS9 Compiler (included) to generate the FS9 Bgl file. The XML source is also available.
Please note that while airports converted with this program should work in FS9 there are a lot of variables and we recommend that the converted Bgl be opened in an Airport Facilities Editor (such as AFCAD, AFX or ADE) for further processing to ensure a satisfactory result.
This program is still a beta and users should use it in that light and make sure that valuable files are back up in a safe place. Please read the enclosed operating notes before using this program.
