    Any chance that i can get my bank files that were still in the notdv003 format working in the current build? I was away like a year or so
    at least from playing SC2 at all and had to do a clean install due to major patching issues.

    I stil have my bank files in a zip from old days...and i really
    would be screwed if id couldnt restore em i was like 20k+ xp and
    quite a respected player.

    i restored them files to the usual location in windows 7
    overwriting , eg. renaming my old files to the new naming convetion.

    Didnt help...am i out of luck cuz of major differences?

    Unfortunately, NOTD updated to Version 5 banks a while ago. I'm not entirely sure I can help you out here, but you might have some luck renaming the bank to notdbank5.

    Welcome back, sabrehawk. We've removed backward compatibility for banks more than 1 year old already unfortunately - due to security issues (old banks could be manipulated more easily without the level of checks we have today and hackers could abuse that).

    Hey there, glad to have you back sabrehawk, just a friendly reminder that there are rules in regards to bank files that were made recently. Please take a look at them when you have the chance.

    Also, I hope you still enjoy NOTD as you did within the past.

    Can't you just play an older version first to make it less than 1 year old?

    Odd, my backups from the time we still used notdv003 still work. (Tested with AP 2 or 3 patches back)

    Try removing all bank files (Including the NOTDBackup text file) from your bank file folder and leaving just the v003 in there then start a game.

    Mirage ಠ_ಠ What are you looking at?

    If none of these fail and I get permission I'll tell you how to migrate 3 to 5. (Should work, if I am allowed to; you'll have to ask the warden/ability)
