I would like to test an EA with 99% modeling data.

I have downloaded Tickstory to download the data. Unfortunately I have a pb when running it so I can't use it.

Does anyone could send the tickdata file .HST (format to be ready to be upload edinto MT4 Archieve) 1M on GBPUSD for 2013

You'll have to get good data from someone like Oanda, the MT data is so full of holes...it doesn't load all ticks.

Tickstory downloads 99% quality data from dukascopy to your mt4 folder.
You can also change the leverage and spread.

I would suggest that you take a look to the tick data from Dukascopy. They are free and the quality is good.

For REAL tick data you need Tickstory. Real tick data is HUGE in size and therefore can't be downloaded anywhere (afaik).
M1 data only, for the period of 1 year would be something over a half GB in size :)
Real tick data of multiple timeframes and multiple pairs from the period of several years would probably fill the whole remaining free space on your HD, possibly you would need a seperate HD for that data :D

True, but Tickstory comes now by serious overhaulin... In addition, it doesnt work well with new 600+ builds of MetaTrader. Shame, it was good tool.

Tickstory v1.3 with Metatrader 4 build 610 works fine for me and I do testing right now over the weekend :)

I have noticed that even 99.99% modeleing tick data is kinda useless.

Now I'm doing a funny demo test on 3 different brokers with same parameters.

Guess what... I don't get 100% same trades from them.

As price provided by brokers can be different and my strategy is based on a very accurate price to enter... 1 pips difference from each MT4 is enough to generate a trade or miss it out.

For me Backtesting is only a matter to check if EA is doing 100% what it should do.

I agree. Backtesting is very broker specific and only means that there is no price difference across different time frames. All prices are calculated based on the lowest time frame if I'm not mistaken. I also try more than one data provider for backtesting and compare the results. For me backtesting using tick story is exhausting. I'd rather use data from forex tester or Alpari.
