Do i have to redownload Spore ModAPI Launcher to use DI.
It says:
"Please close Spore and reopen it through the Spore ModAPI Launcher. If you are already using the Spore ModAPI Launcher, seek assistance on DavoOnline.", What does that mean? :?: :di:

You don't have to redownload anything, you just have to use the Spore ModAPI Launcher to open Spore.

I'm trying to install DI, but after I do, all the new parts are all invisible. I am running steam spore+galactic adventures, my game is fully updated, and I used the spore modAPI launcher for it, but still, it remains invisible. I will note that I do not have creepy+cute installed, but I did disable that option in the installer, so I don't know if that should have any impact at all on anything. Every other part of DI is working fine, like the new UI.

Did you ever have another version of Spore prior to the Steam version?

Huh, I just checked, and I happen to have the origin version installed. I had it installed after the steam version though, can't remember why. Should I uninstall the steam version and proceed with the origin version, or what?

...actually, since you've installed both simultaneously, you'll likely need to uninstall both and reinstall only one version of the game, preferably the Origin version. You'd best backup your creations and save data before doing anything of the sort though. Let me know if you need a hand at any point along the way.

I've managed to uninstall the origin version, reinstall the steam version, and then it worked fine. However, in the tribal editor, the genetic editor is covering the actual tribal editor. The tribal items in the genetic editors don't seem to actually give any buffs. Without the buffs, I'm not able to complete the tribal stage ( I am on hard mode). What do I do?

Known bug, already fixed for the next release. In the meantime, switch to the Full Darkspore GUI or Darkspore Beta GUI.

Incorrect - they're the same parts with the same stats as in the Villager Outfitter, the only difference is that the Genetic Modifier doesn't display those stats.

Don't, you have nothing to apologize for. You're not bothering me.

It happens. Don't worry about it.

...maybe this would be easier to diagnose via a more direct form of communication. Any chance you'd be willing to meet up on say, Steam or Discord or something like that, so we can diagnose this problem more efficiently?

Excellent, my thoughts exactly. Whenever you're ready, PM me either your public alias on either service or a request for my alias on one of these services. Until then, I'll be waiting. Hopefully it won't take too long after that to sort this out.

I did bring SPORE and the addons over to Origin, yet I've removed them and now trying to unstall it. As far as I know, the SPORE Mod API is launching the original bought copy from STEAM.

Well that's not good. For best results, I'd recommend you backup your creations and save data, uninstall all of your mods, uninstall Steam Spore, install Origin Spore, and then reinstall those mods you had.
