Converting rF1 engines to rF2

Sure, rFactor 2 can work fine with rF1 engines. But the improvements can't be implicitly applied. By directly copying your engine from rF1 to rF2, you aren't getting the benefit of the new throttle model. More information needs to be added to get the most out of it, and I'm hoping I've just made that easier.

I've spent the recent couple of weeks working on a small program to make converting rF1 engines over to the rF2 throttle model an easy task. At this stage, I'd say you can put an rF1 engine in the program and get an rF2 engine out in less than a minute. And the engine you get out of it is ready to drive immediately in rF2! (Though you may still need to pack it away in a .mas file, if that's how you're organizing it).
