Most tracks will not properly show up in personal folder

Postby charper732 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 1:39 am

Lately only a few of the tracks I download and put in my personal folder will actually show up in game. Everything else always says it can't be found. What could be the cause of this? I have tried putting .saf and full folders in the main folder as well as the personal folder to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

Local C:>Users>Chris>AppData>Local>MX Simulator

It shows up in the track list but won't load? What's the exact error message?

No, it does not show up in the track list. SOME tracks work as intended, but most do not show up

Pick a track that isn't working and post a screenshot of where it's installed.

You should have just the saf file. What's in the sx2017rq10daytona.high folder? If you type "/listfiles sx2017r10daytona/terrain.hf" in the chat does it find the file?

This is unrelated, but that "MX Simulator" folder in your personal folder looks suspicious. If that's a second install folder inside your personal folder it'll cause problems for you.

the .saf file is the only thing in the folder of each track. The other mx sim folder is just a previous personal folder with other tracks in it. I got rid of it and it didn't make a difference.

I tried inputing that command into chat but nothing happens

You have to take saf files out of the folders.... some tracks will be folders other will be saf'd you just have to figure out which is which

I just noticed that in the screenshot your config and lastlog files' last modified time is the 20th, which appears to be the same date you started having the problem. So for some reason the game isn't finding the folder as of that date. Does it take you to the same location if you open %localappdata% in a file window?

The issue has been happening for awhile before the 20th. What throws me off, is that I can download other tracks that have a folder and a lot more than just a .saf file and they work fine. But the majority of the supercross .saf will not appear. only atlanta and two others ever worked

SAF is an archive format, so there's actually a folder within the saf for track files. If you're placing that saf into a folder, then you have placed one folder into another, and things will break. You have definitely screwed up with the sx2017 tracks.
