Try deleting whichever. scrivx file doesn't match the name of the parent. scriv folder name while Scrivener is closed. Having two .scrivx files may be keeping you from opening the project.

First thing to say is that I've updated ALL of the files this morning. Those that have read my chapters in previous years will know I leave the typos in there, but I have updated for a couple of things:
- Fixed spelling mistakes in peoples names. I'm really sorry those crept in. I will be more careful next year, I promise.
- The two versions of the books now have a small colour identifier on the bottom righthand corner of the cover, and the ebook metadata now includes the version colour in order to make it easier for software and humans to tell the two apart (more useful if you're planning on reading both!).
- The Scrivener project file now has all the right names, and covers for all colour versions.
I have also uploaded the Mac compile settings to the Section 7 thread, should you want to recreate the book at home. Note that the compile settings take into account that the versions of the book sit under the Manuscript folder in a Book folder that doesn't itself get compiled. If you're making you're own version, you'll need that spacer folder ('Book Green''?) in there for the same compile settings to work.
You can, of course, use your own settings, come up with your own cover* etc, but please keep the copyright notice in whatever you produce. Lots of people worked very hard and deserve their recognition!
* - if you want to make a version of the cover with a different colour flash, you have two options: download the full sized plain version of the cover (link below), import it to the program of your choice and overlay a colour, or you can download the GIMP file I used to make the cover (also linked below) and add another layer in that.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words, especially since I know full well that my responses were getting briefer and relying less upon the niceties common in everyday speech towards the end of the day. It wasn't you, it was me. More importantly, it was that big countdown clock thing. I have to stop having those open in a browser window!
Special thanks to Keith and all the team at Literature and Latte for making NiaD possible. They very generously host these forums, but more importantly, planning the book, organising the day, keeping track of actions, development, pulling it all together, and compiling some nice looking books in such a time frame simply wouldn't be possible without Scrivener.
Lee, no I have never practiced self harm. I mean how do you practice it? Do you use red biro?
As for Jaysen's suggestion that I write a book... N'ah, I have no clue where those guys get all their ideas from.
