    Old bank file doesnt work :(

    I'm just an engineer at heart and there just no way for me to grind it all over again.

    Damn you Ability!

    What version file do you got? V003 should still work.

    Hm. It could be possible that the converter code was removed when the autosave was fixed (it autosaved to the old version). Maybe someone who hasn't played for ~2 weeks and thus still has an old map version could load up your bank in single player and thus convert it to v5

    Hi sagev, I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work. Unfortunately, earendil and I won't be able to restore banks to keep a consistent policy.

    I havent played in 3-4 months so I'm probably SOL. I enjoyed the time I had playing NOTD though.

    I just tried with a version 3 bank file from January 19th (the day when I first came to NA), it still works fine.

    Try going to your bank folder, and renaming it from notdbankv003 to notdbankv5?

    Maybe half of them would but the values are indexed differently.

    I did try the rename and its a no go. I played one game this morning as a rifleman in a pub and won. Only one left alive too :( The map has came along way. I'm a 57xp private now.

    And thanks for the welcome back Ability.

    XP gain shouldnt be an issue if you believe. look how much believing helped Tinkerbell.

    Probably, from the fumes of pyro toys. Anyhow, welcome back Sagev. XP gain is truly not an issue, though with the depopulation of players due to D3, it might be a greater issue now. Once you got 1k XP, start doing alphas, and then roll into apollos or do EC NM speeds with me.

    I havent found a soul to play with. Especially the old guys I used to play with. I figured you were with the elitest crew and only played with a handful of predetermined people.

    I thought you only needed 500 Experiance to do NMs, was I mistaken?
    On the topic of NM runs, remember the one where a 300 xp guy joined? We had a 1940 sr recruit. Lol.

    XP gain is very high now and you gain more XP the higher your rank is.
    At private level I think you can still easily get around 90 XP per speedrun if you do the civ truck, 83 without.

    In Alpha/AlphaNM the xp is roughly 220xp per game.
    So once you get to Alpha level and win around 40 odd games you should be able to play engie again
