Sorry if this is a numpty question, but I've a few old tours with customised floor plans and am wanting to upgrade the skins from v5 to v6 to get the mobile device gyro working. Is there a way of copying the location tree data folder from v5 to v6? or do I need to rebuild the plans and node locations from scratch?
I noted the "do not modify skin" note in v6 skin - a link to this topic if already covered in a forum discussion will do to start me off if this is easier.
Thanks for your help
regards Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Why do you want to upgrade, is it just because of the gyro?
If so we have a modified gyro.js to work with iOS.

But what I would do is first make a copy of the p2vr file.
Then open the copy with Pano2VR 6 pro.

You should be able to use the skin from your V5 projet.

Thanks Hopki - I just assumed as the tour gyro didn't work that it needed to be upgraded to the latest skin. I'll give it try as per your suggestion.
Thanks again. Jeff

If you want the modifies Gyro please e-mail into support, address below.
You just replace the old gyro.js file in the output folder.

If you remake it with Pano2VR 6 then you need to add the gyro button in your skin.
There is one in the components toolbox you can use or if you just need to see the action.
