Bought xenforo license. Now want to import mybb to xenforo

Hello Xenforo Developers/Moderators

I have bought xenforo license and now I want to migrate mybb to xenforo. I read that it is good to convert mybb to phpbb 3 and then from phpbb3 to xenforo

Can anyone tell me which converter to use for converting mybb to phpbb3?

I found it goes much smoother going to vB instead of phpBB. Of course down side of that route is the license required unless your lucky enough to have an old unused one handy :)
i can import self but:
Schwerer Installations-Fehler

functions_convert.php [ 655 ]

Hinweis an Entwickler: $convertor['smilies_path'] muss angegeben werden, um import_smiley() zu benutzen.

Fatal installation error
Fatal installation error

functions_convert.php [ 655 ]

Note to developer: you must specify $convertor['smilies_path'] to use import_smiley().

I didnt know that smiley thing o.o

okay.. we aborting all actions. i have importet the mybb into a wbb.

i woult rebuild my gaming forum to a new wbb 4. and maybe use the xf for another project.

i use the WL importer, if this release and import XF and the old wbb database to the new wbb.

this is not meant evil!!!

xF is an good software but my gaming community dont like this so much, before i used xF i used the wbb 3 and later buy the xf and my members doesent like this switch (u know never chance a working system).
