      Actually Barak's script converts the gamemodes from 5.12.1 to 5.14.1 also.

      And as a reminder people, CLIP the stuff AFTER messages for people reading this in email or on the digest.

I see they are no longer valid, but I'm not sure of the correct syntax to replace them. I'll save that question for when I have something specific to ask. Thanks again.

There are no CMP Gamemodes in my 5.16.0 install folder, but I see some under the 5.14.0 folder (I install PCGen in parallel rather than over the top) -- are there concerns/considerations to using those gamemode files, or can I just copy them over into the 5.16.0 system/gamemodes folder?
