Whenever I try to run the game via the API's launcher after just installing Dark Injection Beta 2.3.0, it still claims to that I need to run it via the API and forces me to quit and I get this error message. Any attempt to run the game afterwards will just result in a black screen followed by the game exiting by itself. I uninstalled the mod, tried installing and playing with Beta 2.1.6 instead and it works fine for some reason.
If it helps, I am running the game on my Windows 10 PC.

I have the steam version of spore, along with Creepy and Cute and Galactic Adventures, and it's set to automatically update to the newest version. Can someone help us figure out what's wrong and how to fix it?
Hi, sorry for all the trouble, to both of you. I'm not sure if you were aware, but it seems that issues like the ones you've both encountered have been running rampant - and up until fairly recently, widely un-diagnosed - and I've yet to figure out exactly why. Fortunately, Emd and I have recently devised a hypothesis as to why this problem keeps coming up, and how to resolve it.
The reason I'm informing you of this is simple: I need help testing this hypothesis. The more the merrier, at that. As such, I'd like to ask if you two would be willing to help me? In return, well...if it works, you'll get a proper fix ahead of the crowd, and if not, I'll help you get your game back to a working state, if needed. I'm sorry to have to ask this of you out of the blue, but I'm a bit desperate at the moment, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated. If it's any reassurance, I have reason to believe that there's a good chance that this solution will work (even if it might take a couple of tries to implement correctly), and unlike the fixes I've previously been handing out, if this one DOES work, I can simply distribute it to everyone as an update to the ModAPI Launcher Kit, rather than having to craft individual configurations for each user who encounters such a problem.
EDIT: Forgot to mention this...if either of you are willing to help out in this way, I suspect that it would be easiest to walk you through the process of applying the attempted fix on The Spore Modding Community Discord Server
, if you're willing (ping me in the #modding-support channel when you arrive, mentioning this experiment in some manner, and I'll get back to you ASAP). If not, I can be flexible. Just say so.
