You just answered your own question - in spite of our best efforts, Steam Spore support remains notoriously unreliable. Normally I'd recommend transferring your keys to Origin to get the Origin version of Spore, but since you're so against using Origin at all, I suppose your only option is to buy Spore from somewhere else. I'd recommend GOG. After making the purchase (or transferring your keys to Origin, if you decide to go that route), be sure to backup your creations and save data and uninstall the Steam version of the game before you install your new non-Steam version. If you need help with any of that, just let me know.

You're using Steam Spore. I'd recommend you do the following, in the listed order:
1. Backup your creations and save data
2. Transfer your Steam Spore keys to Origin (you might have to contact EA support for help with this if the Origin client doesn't cooperate)
3. Uninstall your mods
4. Uninstall Steam Spore
5. Install Origin Spore
6. Reinstall your mods



Are those links screenshots of errors or something? Because if so, then I can't see them, since you haven't made them publicly viewable.

Odds are, you don't. Just transfer your Steam keys to Origin.

Launching Spore from the modAPI gives me the message that I should launch it through the API when it loads. I have it installed in appdata, with the other files on my desktop in a folder alongside dark injector.

Well, make sure you did none of these:
-Run the Mod API without C&C and GA installed, in that order
-Run the Mod API in Administrator mode
-Run the Mod API using the Steam version
-Run the Mod API with multiple versions of Spore installed

Other than that, what are you doing? Being specific means people help you faster.

Where does the Dark Injections installer go? And are you running the installer in administrator mode?

are you opening the modAPI from a batch file or from the exe?

So, after a loooong time of experiments, I successfully installed some mods (Dark Injection and Force Save). but for some reason it just does not want to work.
I have the Spore ModAPI Launcher pinned on my taskbar, and everytime I run it, this error message appears:
Image
(If the Image didn't appear, the message is "Could not find default preferences. The data directory is missing or corrupt.".)
I tried going to the launcher's location in my files and run it from there, but it didn't work aswell. The game also doesn't even open if I run it from Origin!
Anyways, my laptop has 8GB RAM, 1TB of space in total(584GB free), and I had the Steam version of Spore, before getting the Origin Key and transfering it to Origin.
Please, help me, I was really excited to play Modded Spore, and I don't want to give up on trying to play it.
Edit: I forgot to mention, I have C&C, GA, and the newest version of Spore.

Reinstall Origin and Spore GA and see if that fixes it. And get rid of the Steam version if it's still installed! I installed the Origin version before removing the Steam version like an idiot and had the same problem you're experiencing.

Hello,
I currently have the GOG version of Spore and when I launch the game with mods installed the game crashes on the black loading screen.
