Is it possible to convert scripts written for Lightwave 5.6 so that they'll work with version 7.5?

I've found the following script:

http://www.trinitymediainc.com/Downloads/SeanzDialTicks5-6.zip

It creates dials/gauges, however it won't work with Lightwave 7.5. Here's a pic of the interface:

I've tried emailing the author, but his email is gone and my messages get bounced back to me. Can anyone with scripting experience tell me if this can be converted?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Well, there was only one line that made the error.
I fixed it.
Can't promise it works as described, but I got it to create a simple dial just hitting OK straight through, until it said "Choose a font", I said "Proceed" and it worked.

I'm not going to use this, but just wanted to point out the LWers used to surprise me with their generosity and help, but I realized that it can't be a surprise if everyone just keeps on helping. You programmer people really amaze me, and that fact you give away your time to help with fixing stuff and free scripts are great. Good on you CMan.:beer:

Actually, Sean fixed it. As I was downloading, I saw the 7.5 version in me box. So, even the author has caught up.

Seems he's doing the others, as well.

Where's his site?
I tried the link listed in the lscript, but nothing showed up.
I'd like to see what else he's got too. :)

Cman, you rule! :buttrock: Thanks so much for the fix.

Robert, do you know how I can get in touch with Sean? He has some nice stuff on his site. I'd like to be able to thank him properly for the use of his script.

Thanks!

Steve
