I haven't heard of anyone working on this conversion. Due to some of the ways in which the V2.x Clan War files were written, they can NOT be automatically converted for use within AB3. That means that someone will need to rewrite the Clan War files for V3.1, which is quite doable, albeit a fair amount of work. Since Clan War has been out of production for 3-4 years now, it's not something that we're in a position to do ourselves, so someone will need to step up to write new data files for Clan War in V3.1. Everything needed to write the data files is readily available within the Authoring Kit, so you might consider giving it a go yourself. :-)

Thanks, Not really a programmer though. Any idea of which Datafile might be a good one to review in 3.1 to get started?

I can't think of a particular game system that would be "best" in this regard. The WFB data files are a pretty good representation of most behaviors you'd need to utilize, so that might be the best place to start. But Clan War has some requirements that are unique to that game, so I don't know if there are examples of everything already in use somewhere. The latest docs provide a lot of "how to" suggestions and tips, so you ought to find just about everything you'll need outlined there. And you're welcome to ask questions here. Lots of authors participate here and will often be happy to offer suggestions.

AB Creator is a part of Army Builder already. Have you seen our "Intro to Army Builder Data File Authoring" video? That may be a good place to start.
