Hi Barry:

You have the same old "nested folder" error in your main food folder. :P Notice this line, "Can't open food def file food\food\food.def." where it says food\food\food? It is a sure sign that there is a folder within a folder.

Go to your main RWFF food folder and within it, find any "food" folder that has not been opened. Open those and copy the contents of this folder into your main food folder. When asked whether to replace the existing files, click "Yes". Then delete the now empty extra food folder and you will be fine.

Sometime we get this nested folder error when one downloads a food zip file (or fish or sound zip file) from the Club House, or through the internet, and just drag the whole unzipped folder right into the RWFF folder without first expanding it and copying only the content files into the RWFF fish, food or sound folders.

Hope this helps! :lol:
