Hello...thanks for the great application! I had a huge smilie pack on an old phpbb2 board that I wanted to import into a new phpbb3 board for a different community, and this application was just what I needed!

Unfortunately, phpbb3 isn't liking the file that's been generated. I've posted a support request on the 3.0.x boards, but they're so swamped with other issues right now that I haven't had much help. Here's the link: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 6&t=567715 Is there any input you might have that could make this work?

Merci beaucoup!

That's strange. Generated files worked fine with the betas and RC1... (the smilies on this forum are imported from a pack generated through this program :?)

So I guess that's something they have touched since RC1... :?

I may have an idea, I'll just check something...

Files generated by my program DO have that final space. I just checked and I remember distincly having lost some time over that nitpick when writing the app.

The only difference I can find is that my app uses CR+LF for each new line, while an exported pack uses LF only.

Try importing the conversion of the example phpBB2 pack shipped with the program, which I know for sure works. If it fails to import, then it's probably the CRLF thingy, if not, it's probably someting with your pack...

Well from what I see on phpbb.com, you altered the output, hence the 'bug', ergo the program works and all is well, false alarm... :pan

Good day.
