I tried playing Spore with this mod along with some other mods (supersized creature, infinite scaling) and it showed an error message. What am I supposed to do? I don't know how to put images in replies. :( Some basic info about the error message said, "System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception" and "Access is denied".

Can you provide screenshots of these errors in their entirety, along with all of your installed mods?

That's not a ModAPI issue. This happens when the game is set to only download creations made by buddies.

I too keep getting the "Access denied error" initially it wouldn't work at all (I used my old disks) but I got pissed off and re-bought the game on Steam which is where i'm now getting the "Access denied" error this happened, both before and after I uninstalled the Disk versions of the game.

Does this mean that the issue is related to Steam?
I'm also suffering from this issue. I'm using the Steam version of Spore too.

I've been trying to figure out what could possibly be causing this issue for quite a while now, but recently, I may have discovered a potential answer to that question. Only time - and testing - will tell for sure.


VanillaCold wrote:Does this mean that the issue is related to Steam?

Funny you should mention that...virtually all of the remaining issues with the Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit are either exclusive to the Steam version of the game or far more prevalent with it than other versions. Furthermore, this actually has absolutely no connection to the past supposed "unmoddability" of Steam Spore - that was solely a matter of our limited understanding of how package prioritization works, while all this ModAPI nonsense has nothing to do with that and seemingly everything to do with the fact that Steam Spore can only be launched through Steam, meaning the ModAPI Launcher is forced to ask Steam to start the game, rather than just...starting it directly, as it would for every other version of the game.

I've installed Dark Injection beta 2.3.2 and it required to open game using Spore ModAPI Launcher. So I downloaded it, installed and tried to launch game via Spore ModAPI but I'm still getting this message in Spore (steam version).

Do any other error messages appear? And if so, can you provide screenshots of all of them?

No errors appears.
Also if it useful, game runs fine with Dark Injection 2.1.6, but with 2.3.2 I'm getting this problem.

...huh, a third case of this. Where did you install Spore from? Steam? GOG? Disk? Origin?
And also, have you successfully used any other ModAPI mods?

Well yeah, DI 9.r Public Beta 2.1.6 isn't a ModAPI mod, so of course it doesn't make any effort to ensure that the ModAPI Launcher is used. Meanwhile, DI 9.r Public Beta 2.3.2 is a ModAPI mod, so of course it complains if the Spore ModAPI Launcher isn't used (or fails to inject, as evidently is the case here). The underlying problem exists regardless of which is used though.

Okay. This is going to sound rather strange, but...can you do me a favor and install the Enhanced Color Picker, and tell me whether or not it works for you?

I installed mod, API installer said it was successfully. And it is cause I can see mod file in Spore:GA folder (DataEP1). But when I launching game (via ModAPI launcher), mod just... doesn't work: no additional button for other colours in creator.

...oh, wonderful. I've seen issues like this in only a few other cases, and...have yet to locate a viable solution, unfortunately. The only workaround I know of is to move to a non-Steam version of Spore (Origin is probably easiest to transfer your keys to), but for obvious reasons, I don't really want to go around telling everyone to do that...
