Had a quick look at the Drive indicator. It references another indicator called T3, which is included in the zip file as well.

The problem is that there is already a system indicator called T3 that comes with NT7, so the two different T3 indicators will be conflicting. To solve this you would need to rename the indicator T3 to something else, for example T4, and then replace T3 with T4 in the code of the Drive indicator. That is the first step. There might be a few other things to consider.

You can do this actually by editing the indicator with NT 6.5:

(a) edit indicator T3, save as T4 and then compile via F5
(b) edit Drive indicator, replace all places where "T3" is called with "T4" and compile via F5
(c) export Drive indicator with T4 indicator included in the export file
(d) post the export file right here

We can then check, whether it is running on NT7.

@Fat Tails indicator is working as expected.
Did you remove the previous "Drive" indicator before importing this one ?

Congratulations!

The indicator you created works perfectly and can be imported by NT7 without any problems. Below is an ES chart generated with NT7 that shows the indicator.

It is a nice indicator, where did you get it? It seems to follow a logic similar to the Directional Movement, but has a volatility component, as both lines rise, when the volatility increases. Also it has some smoothing. You could trade the crosses, if volatility is high enough, so I would try to add a reference line similar to the threshold for the ADX.

If you have any problems importing it, this can be related to other files. Just let us know the error message.

Sure?

Excuse if I am wrong but it seems that drive(2) is still calling to T3 (which is NT7 "native") instead of T4...

Un saludo,

Pablo

The variables in the NT7 version changed from INT to DOUBLE or vice-versa from NT6.5.

The conversion would be to change the indicator to read the newer NT7 version but instead they decided to create a new T3 indicator and renamed it T4. I've not check to see how they compare.

You are right. Drive 2 calls T3. Actually the new system indicator T3 is an updated (generalized) version of the old T3 indicator, which was not a system indicator. So it is better to use Drive with the new indicator T3.

Drive2 is a modified índicator to comply with the new system indicator T3. But then T4 is not needed anyhow. So you can simply delete it.

For all those who want to import a correct version that includes the system indicators that are referenced, here it is:
