I'm working on cracking a pmkid file. I have collected pcap file using bettercap.

Then convert using this:

hcxpcaptool -z bettercap-wifi-handshakes.pcap.pmkid bettercap-wifi-handshakes.pcap

They appear to convert:
summary:
file name....................: bettercap-wifi-handshakes.pcap
file type....................: pcap 2.4
file hardware information....: unknown
file os information..........: unknown
file application information.: unknown
network type.................: DLT_IEEE802_11_RADIO (127)
endianness...................: little endian
read errors..................: flawless
packets inside...............: 185
skipped packets..............: 0
packets with GPS data........: 0
packets with FCS.............: 6
beacons (with ESSID inside)..: 7

EAPOL packets................: 172
EAPOL PMKIDs.................: 10
best handshakes..............: 5 (ap-less: 0)

4 PMKID(s) written to bettercap-wifi-handshakes.pcap.pmkid

I then try to run hashcat against it and it returns "separator unmatched" for all of my entries. This is a simple 2 digit test below. What is going on here?

hashcat -m16800 -a3 -w3 bettercap-wifi-handshakes.pcap.pmkid %d%d --force
hashcat (v5.1.0-849-gcf8c815c) starting...

Note.
Hascat and hcxtools changed potfile, outfile and hashlines.
User should read changelog.

02.04.2019
==========
Due to hashcat changes:
"WPA/WPA2 cracking: In the potfile, replace password with PMK in order
to detect already cracked networks across all WPA modes"

hcxpcaptool: added new option -k to convert dumpfile to new hashcat PMKID format

new option -k is for hashcat git (> 5.1.0)
potfile changed
outfile changed

Developer pushed an update. Now hcxpacptool will give an info that PMKIDs are stored in old format!!

Recommendation by the developer of hcxtools/hcxdumptool:
Read the help menu
-k <file> : output PMKID file (hashcat hashmode -m 16800 new format)
-z <file> : output PMKID file (hashcat hashmode -m 16800 old format and john)

Using Hashcat v5.1.0
-k -->rule right
-z -->brain-client
Read both ZerBea tools readme never came across -k or -z in it
Found this instead
hcxhashcattool -->Convert old hashcat (<= 5.1.0) separate potfile (2500 and/or 16800) to new potfile format

Got it it is in hcxtool readme?
so multicap converter fails in this
