That's usually caused by having extra copies of the zzz*.saf files in subfolders under either of your MX Simulator folders. The only zzz*.saf files should be in the install folder which defaults to "C:\Program Files (x86)\MX Simulator". If you find any others remove them.

You don't need that file, but if it's in the main install folder it shouldn't cause problems either.

I still cant figure out what my problem is, and you were right, removing the text saf didn't work. Here's a list of everything that is in my Mx Simulator folder.
zzzz.saf
zzzy.saf
sx2011.saf (I'm guessing this came with the game?)
zzzt.saf
zzzu.saf
zzzx.saf
then there is the mx.exe and all the old snapshot versions (6 in total)
zzzv.saf
uninstall.exe
credits.txt
zzzw.saf

Thanks for helping by the way.

You're missing zzzs.saf. If you have a recent snapshot installed you need 1.10 installed as well.

You have to install in the same folder that you have version 1.9 installed in. The default is "C:\Program Files (x86)\MX Simulator".

I have 1.10 installed aswell as the newest snapshot unfortunately i cannot connect to any servers due to a file mismatch. I have all the correct zzz.saf files from zzzs.saf to zzzz.saf so im not to sure what the issue is many thanks to whoever can sort this issue out for me.

If you have all the files you probably have an extra zzz*.saf file somewhere. As an example, it you have a sub-folder with zzzz.saf in it, the game will find that and use the older files from it instead of the newer files from zzzs/t/u etc. Type this in the game's chat screen:

/listfiles generic_frame.shp

It should show you where the extra file is located.
