Thumbs up [RELEASE] Metamorph - Theme Control File Upgrader

Stericson have a new Metamorph App.
It uses xml theme control files instead of the old thm files.

danation from the ModMyMoto forum has made a program, that updates the thm file to the new xml format.

It works very very well.

Please at all themers:
Use the Pro Version, use the new Metamorph with xml. Upgrade your Morphs with the xml files. Its not many work for you, but you can help us themers and users if you do this.

Contact your theme developer.

I'm in the process of upgrading mine to the new XML format right now.

If the theme developer is no longer around you will have to either obtain and use a copy of the old metamorph app or use the conversion tool to convert the .thm into a .xml file before use.

After using the tool I can say it works, but I can think of a few ideas to make it easier. First of all, is there any CLI support? The GUI is a bit annoying. Also, the ability to drag+drop a .thm file right on the window and have it output the .xml converted file in the same directory would be just awesome.

All in all, Great work. It saves me from manually creating new .xml files for all my old .thm files.

this is a great tool that makes it super easy to change .thm files to xml. If only all the idiots on the market giving metamorph bad reviews could read this. Not hard to do it yourself if the theme dev is not around...

I don't really know, why themers out there have used the free version and didn't donate stericson for his hard work!

We know since three weeks, that the thm file become changed to the xml file
And now there is the chaos, because there are a lot of guys, who didn't read instructions.

Perhaps worth noting in the original post that this is an app for Windows. I assumed it was an Android app.
