Hello does anyone know if the current version 19 is backward compatible with older versions like 13 and 14?  I spent months building models for a short film in the older versions and want to know if the new version will read those old project files before I spend money.  Any help would be appreciated. Have tried sending support emails to Hash but no response.

thanks

You should be able to take models from v13 and v14 to later versions with little or no trouble.

 

The big file format dividing line is between v12 and v13. You can't take models from v13 or later into v12 or earlier.

If you should have any more questions, this is the place to ask!

thanks for responding. but will the new version open the project files of v14? Reason is that Windows changed something and my original v14 wont run anymore (Windows 7) so I can't save out the models to a file.

Yes, all A:M files will work, not just MDL.

 

Yes, Windows 7 removed the code that allowed the CD copy protection to work because it was a security risk. The copy protection was not written by Hash, they licensed it, so it wasn't possible for Hash to update that (if it even was possible)

 

I think you will enjoy the faster performance and features of new A:M versions.  I recommend the annual subscription version.
