Default Open Source Tuning Help

I need your help. I am trying to get this to work, however, I can't even get ECUFlash to open any XPT maps or customized ones that are 192kb. The only maps it will recognize are 160kb maps. I have reinstalled the newest version of ECUflash and the definitions but it still says:

"Unknown Rom Image. Ecuflash could not recognize this ROM image using any of the current definitions. You can choose one of the following options:
1)abort using this ROM image (with no chance of saving)
2)continue using this ROM image with no definition (no editing or viewable, but saveble)
3)use wizard to create a new definition (NOT RECOMMENDED!!-FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY )

it also says this "[21:51:04.140] image file is incorrect size."

The Directions from XPT are as follows:
Copy the XPTxxxxx.XML file from that directory to the following location if using EcuFlash 1.30 or lower: "C:\Program Files\OpenEcu\EcuFlash\Metadat a\Subaru\WRX" , if you have an STI, change "WRX" to "STI". If you have EcuFlash 1.31 or higher, copy the file to this directory: "C:\Program Files\OpenEcu\EcuFlash\Metadat a\Subaru\Impreza WRX"

I have tried multiple times to follow the instructions but I'm not sure i'm following them correctly. For some reason it is not working for me. The Rom file i downloaded is a .HEX file. Does it need to be .xml in order for ECU flash to recognize it? If so is there a way to convert the file?


Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks

You need 2 different files.

Your XPT Rom (xxxxxxxx.hex) file and your XPT definitions File (xxxxxxx.xml)

You put the xml file in the proper metadata folder and then open the hex file with ecuflash.

you will also need a new ecu_def file for RomRaider to edit it. You can't just add a def to it. RomRaider uses only one file for all ecu definitions.

I have multiple xml files: the basic one, the motorcycle one, the beta 08 STi one... Romraider accepts more than one ecu definition XML file.
