It's true that it will corrupt the player file, but hey, you know the
old format, and you know the new format? Then just write a Converter (I
think there is a snippet on, er, the snippets site :)

We changed from 32 to 128 Bits, and at that point we had over 200
Players in the Database Some which played pretty often, so sitting and
reimbursing 200 players.. nah, better look at some way to convert them.
Actually it's not that hard. I'll see if I can dig up my old Converter..
