I have been learning how to use the MySword droid Bible study software over the last week+. I have also converted tons of modules. Today I tried converting the KJV Bible with TVM along with the Strongs TVM dictionary. They both converted great and work well together. I posted these at this site today. I am amazed by this software and it is just in the beginning stages of development.

There does not seem to be much demand for the MySword modules yet, but I expect the demand will be increasing, so I will slowly be adding modules to the section on this site. This is by far the most powerful mobile Bible study software I have seen that is free. With the converters that they have provided, almost any e sword module at this site can be converted into a MySword module for droid. It is even easier to create modules for his software than it was for pocket e sword. The search functionality is far superior to pocket e sword. They have recently provided book reading functionality and a way to convert theWord book modules!

I checked with the MySword software creators to make sure they were ok with this and gave them a link to this site. As long as I do not post any modules that are official modules at their site, they are fine with it.

Please let me know if there are any modules that you would like to see and I will make those a priority to convert/post.

I probably already have them converted, I just have not gotten around to posting them yet.

Thanks,
Peter

Hi all,
I updloaded a MySword version of the companion Bible notes commentary and appendix that Patchworkid made for e sword. Please let me know if there are any other modules that you would like me to post for MySword. Pretty much any e sword module on this site can be converted to MySword for droid.
Thanks,
Peter

Niobi,

Here is how to convert modules.

Download the migration tools from www.mysword.info on their downloads page. They will install in the c directory under MySwordMigrationTools.

You then need to paste theWord modules into this directory. I always rename the module so that it does not have any spaces. The module cannot be encrypted or compressed to work. If it is compressed open it up in theWord and go to the module information. On one of the tabs you can uncheck the module compression. You will get an error that tells you if the module is encrypted or compressed when you try to convert a module.

Once you have a theWord module in the MySwordMigrationTools Folder, then go to go to start/run and enter cmd and press enter.

Once you are inside the command prompt, I always enter "cd .." without the quotes twice to get back to the c directory. I then enter "CD MySwordMigrationTools" without the quotes and press enter to change to the correct directory. Once you are there, you can follow these instructions (the rest of this note is from their readme file):

5. Migrating TheWord Bible Modules

Open a Command Prompt (CMD.exe) and go to the location where you unzipped
the archive file and make sure you go to the inside folder
(MySwordMigrationTools).

In the Command Prompt, if the module to be migrated is bbe.ont and is
placed in the same folder where the executables are, type the following:

TheWordBible2MySword bbe.ont

This will create bbe.bbl.mysword. You can now just copy this file into your
selected Modules Path/Folder in your Android device.

Please note that the TheWord .ot, .nt or .ont file must be in UTF-8 format
for the migration to be successful unless only 7-bit ASCII characters are
in the file. To determine if the file is in UTF-8 format, you can open it
in Notepad++ and go to the Encoding menu. To change the format to UTF-8
format, select Encoding->Convert to UTF-8 without BOM, then save the file.
You can also opt to use UTF-8 with BOM if you want. After this, you can now
use TheWordBible2MySword.

You can also check the resulting SQLite database outside MySword by using
Firefox SQLite Manager plugin/extension. Open the migrated file and check
the contents by going to Bible table and selecting Browse & Search tab.
Check if there are no problems with the text.

6. Migrating TheWord Commentary Modules

Open a Command Prompt (CMD.exe) and go to the location where you unzipped
the archive file and make sure you go to the inside folder
(MySwordMigrationTools).

In the Command Prompt, if the module to be migrated is tsk.cmt.twm and is
placed in the same folder where the executables are, type the following:

TheWordCommentary2MySword tsk.cmt.twm

This will create tsk.cmt.mysword. You can now just copy this file into your
selected Modules Path/Folder in your Android device.

You can also use Firefox SQLite Manager plugin/extension to see the output
SQLite database without using MySword. Check the Commentary table.

7. Migrating TheWord Dictionary Modules

Open a Command Prompt (CMD.exe) and go to the location where you unzipped
the archive file and make sure you go to the inside folder
(MySwordMigrationTools).

In the Command Prompt, if the module to be migrated is eastons.dct.twm and
is placed in the same folder where the executables are, type the following:

TheWordDictionary2MySword eastons.dct.twm

This will create eastons.dct.mysword. You can now just copy this file into
your selected Modules Path/Folder in your Android device.

You can also use Firefox SQLite Manager plugin/extension to see the output
SQLite database without using MySword. Check the Dictionary table.

8. Migrating TheWord Book/Devotional/Graphics Modules

(Note: only the first 50 chapters of theWord book files will convert, they have told me they will fix this in the next release.)

TheWord General Book (*.gbk.twm) Devotional (*.dev.twm) and Maps/Graphics
(*.map.twm) all have the same format and can be migrated to MySword v.2.0
Journal or Book format (*.bok.mybible). This migration program will
automatically use the extention .bok.mybible but you can always rename it
to .jor.mybible. Also, the migration program will automatically set the
readonly field in the details table to 1. If you intend to allow editing
of the journal/book in MySword, you will have to set it to 0 manually
(please see below on how you can use Firefox and SQLite manager to do
that). But please note that Journal/Book editing in MySword is limited to
7 entries if the Premium Version is not activated. This can be activated
for a generous donation of any amount to support MySword development,
hosting and support.

Open a Command Prompt (CMD.exe) and go to the location where you unzipped
the archive file and make sure you go to the inside folder
(MySwordMigrationTools).

In the Command Prompt, if the module to be migrated is eastons.dct.twm and
is placed in the same folder where the executables are, type the following:

TheWordBook2MySword wight-manners.gbk.twm

This will create eastons.dct.mysword. You can now just copy this file into
your selected Modules Path/Folder in your Android device.

You can also use Firefox SQLite Manager plugin/extension to see the output
SQLite database without using MySword. Check the Dictionary table.

9. Migration Errors

Note that Bible References that do not have correct book number and chapter
number will not be properly migrated (so there will be no link) but the
migration process will still continue. The errors are reported to the
console though.

10. Known Issues

The migration program will crash in case of IO Exceptions like the one
triggered when the .mysword file is opened in Firefox SQLite Manager or
you are running the wrong version of System.Data.SQLite.DLL (32-bit in a
64-bit Windows for example).

Hi Ryan,

You have to paste them into the MySword folder on your droid device (if that is the module path you have selected under menu button/ more. Then you may have to exit out of MySword by hitting the menu button/ more/ exit.

The modules should then show up.

If you are trying to view a book module, then you need to make sure you have the RC release directly from their site installed. Release 1.6 from the market does not support the journal/book files. I think the latest software should be available at the market very soon.

I hope this helps. If the above does not work, you may have to go to www.mysword.info and email them for more help.

Peter

All,

I have updated three of the MySword files today (K&D, Companion Bible Notes, and Companion Bible). The K&D file should have improved Hebrew charachter conversion. The links between the companion Bible notes and the appendix will not work yet in MySword. I have to work on fixing these in theWord and then migrating the files to MySword. I hope to work on this at some point.

I have also begun to upload more files. The book files have a heavy emphasis on Bible prophecy because I am doing a lot of reading in that area to prepare for a teaching I am giving next month. I will try to be more balanced as time goes on.

If anyone would like to help convert the e sword modules on this site to MySword, please see the instructions above and contact me with any questions. It would be great to get some help in this area. Progress will be slow but steady if I continue to be the only one.

I will glady take special requests is there are any books, dictionaries, commentaries, or bibles that are in e sword on this site or in theWord on David Cox's site (twmodules.com). I will put special requests at the top of the priority list for conversion.

Thanks,
Peter

The latest release of mysword is now available at the Android market. You should now be able to view any book files that I load to this site in the new journal feature within mysword. This makes a great e reader for any books that you want to read that are available as theWord book files or e sword topics.

I am posting some books here. If there are any specific e sword topics you would like please let me know.

Thanks,
Peter

I'm new to android and to MySword. I have MySword set up nicely on my tablet, then found this site through the MySword site. In the MySword section of this site I saw some apps that I really wanted. Downloaded them to my tablet, but then I'm at a loss as to what to do with them. I don't see any way to put them in MySword. I'm missing something, but what?
