Mugen Folder Structure Loading

So i like to keep my mugen organized. For the longest time i've had my characters sorted into Folders like so:

(Type i.e Anime) --> Sub Folders (Series) --> Character.

And the game loads it just fine, no problems ever encountered.

Stages however, i never did such a thing but kept them organized via my select.def by putting them into categories. Today, i decided to put aside some time and actually create folders to put them into their respective categories, having 300 stages makes it difficult to find stages sometimes.

I finally just finished, started up mugen, and they all show up on the stage selection. I begun by testing some stages in my "Testing" folder, the one i use to test out new stages, and they worked, until about 4 stages later where i crashed getting this error.

Code:
Error detected.

BG error reading stages/1.Training/Training Stage.def

Clipboard tail:
Charsel init
Selected char 0 on teamslot 0.0
Char J_saber.def (0) request pal 0 7F (7F) -> reserved 0 (7E)
Selected char 7 on teamslot 1.0
Char mai_mvc2.def (7) request pal 0 1 (1) -> reserved 0 (0)
End of charsel loop
Game loop deinit
Gameflow 8
Gameflow 9
Gameflow 10
Entering versus screen.
Unloading match assets
Freeing players
Game loop init
Versus screen init
End of versus screen loop
Game loop deinit
Gameflow 11
Loading match assets...
Loading stage...
  Loading BG...

I tried again, and it crashed again when trying the same stage. So i tried another stage, my first stage, crashed with the same error, and i tried another one, same crash + error. However those first stages i tried still work.

Can anyone explain to me why this is happening? They were working before, now their not. Its obviously something to do with putting them in folders, but why would this happen with stages, and work fine with characters? And more importantly, why are some stages working and some aren't.

i think i know your problem but to be sure, post a screenshot of:

*the code inside your mugen select.def (the lines where you define your stages)
*the code inside the training stage.def (the line defining the .sff file location)
*your mugen stage folder (inside the one where the stage is not working

if you do that
make sure inside the def stage file has no stages/ or stages\
for example
stages/bbb.sff

to fix the crash change it to
bbb.sff

and stage def file or folder name must not have space character ( ) or else it will cause order glitch

That was it! THAT WAS THE ISSUE!

The path was the issue, some stages didn't have the stages/*stage name*.sff but the vast majority do. I got rid of the stages/ at the start and it worked!

Thanks so much to both of you <3
