Anyway please see this thread, it seems that it is possible to use some tricks to import tick data from files:http://forextester.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=387
Yes, I've seen that article before, but it seems like a lot of hoops to jump through when the program now recognizes real tick data naturally.
Since you've added the support to FT 2.6 to use real tick data, it would be nice if I could use mine. I really hope that you are not going to hold back the direct import support just to try and force people to pay for your VIP service. I for one will never spend $30 per month for that, especially when I've got much more tick data than you even offer.
So I really hope you are going to tell me that you just didn't have time to get the direct tick data import functionality put into 2.6, but it will be put in a later release.
