Converting old Mac playbooks to Windows?

Hello all,
I have the OLD Mac version of Playmaker (got it in '90), and a whole slew of teams and playbooks. How can I convert them (primarily the playbooks) to Windows format? So far I tried upgrading the old Mac PBs to version 2.1 with the utility on this site, then I copied them to my PC and changed the extension to .fbp, but to my dismay I couldn't open them.

Any way to do this that actually works?

Thanks,
Ronen

That should do it.  Did the old playbooks work on a Mac after you upgraded them from 1.0 to 2.x format?

Well, I'll have to try again. I encountered another problem- some of my old playbooks are password protected, and I have no clue as to the passwords anymore. I was dumb enough not to write them down, either (but hey, I was about 7 years old). Any way to reset them or recover the plays otherwise?

Thanks again,
Ronen

There are some old coaches who know how to crack open PB's... I always ask dennis monbarren.... sorry I don't know how to myself.
