The map formats are actually really similar for AW1 and AW2 (minus the fact that AW2 has new stuff).

I wrote up a converter in python that converts AW1 maps to the AW2 map format ages ago, there's not much reason that I couldn't rewrite it to do the reverse.

Just gotta get the okay to share some bits of it.

Hi again, do you still have this converter, also where to find information about AW1 map file format...

The maps header format for AW1 is similat to AW2??, im looking into the values you Xenesis gave me into file, but seems there are much different bytes.
