Our community has been hard at work toward converting scripts to NinjaTrader 8 during the beta process, and we have sections dedicated to Indicators, Strategies, and any Miscellaneous items on our support forum.
Unfortunately, all NinjaTrader 7 NinjaScript objects will not be compatible, however the conversion process for the majority of scripts should be minimal. For developers, we have included a comprehensive Code Breaking Changes section in the NinjaTrader 8 Help Guide.
There are no plans for NinjaTrader to provide or support a utility to convert scripts automatically. It is crucial that the programmer responsible for the script’s development fully understand the code breaking changes between versions. Otherwise, the automatic conversion could yield unexpected results.
