      Update:  From what i have been reading, sideways frets are a result of using an incorrect mod versions number. I am not using a mod, but will try one to see if this helps. Will post back with results!

      Havent managed to find a working link for a decent mac mod... however during my search i found a FoF that works correctly

      This version gets rid of sideways frets. Hope this helps!

      What the heck is a sideways fret? I read the OP post and still have no idea how to visualize such a problem in my head.

      What they are talking about with sideways frets is:

      It happens when you use notes from an older version with a newer version. (Such as notes from v1.1.324 with v1.2.512)
