Many many things have changed since b4 so your old bundle(s) will  
need to be re-written/edited for it to work in b12. It's difficult  
for me to tell you exactly what without it, but most likely there are  
these changes to be made:

-- remove all formatting (colour, font style, etc) from the syntax file
-- ensure that each regex group in the syntax file fits in to the  
correct naming scheme and is named correctly. (the naming scheme is  
still being confirmed atm, but you can look at other syntax files for  
further info.)
-- ensure that any Command, Macro or Snippet has the correct scope  

Give those a try and if you still have problems or questions  then  
come back to us. Alternatively, get on the #textmate IRC and ask us.
