Static696, could you please use the edit button to add to your post instead of triple-posting?

Where did you install Spore from, a disk, Origin, or Steam?

That's because you didn't install the Arenas_ packages to your Core Spore data folder, which I assume is due to you being unaware of its location :lol:

I needed to know where you installed the game from, as that changes the path.

Since you have the game on Origin, you'll be able to find your Core Spore data folder at

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Spore\Data

so just move zArenas_RDX9.package and zArenas_Textures.package to that folder and you'll be good to go. It is very important that you move them, rather than copying them.

Okay, that's weird. I'm just going to take a guess here, have you tried

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\SPORE\Data
?

No problem. I'm not sure why your Core Spore data folder was in the location typical of disk installs, but in any case you might want to make note of that location for future use. Never know when you might need it :lol:

Question: I already have an older version of Dark Injection, can I just replace the old files with the new files? I don't wanna have to reinstall Spore again, I use a Mac OSX Lion btw, I have the newest DI on Windows 10 but the graphics card doesn't match so the graphics look really bad.

Also there's zPackage and the main DI file in my GA data folder too, what do I do with those?...

EDIT: I installed the new stuff and it seems to be working so far? oh, bg in test play is gone but everything else seems fine..Unfortunately the pupil problem still persists...

Any DI packages present prior to installing 9.r must be removed.

The zArenas_ packages must be in your Core Spore Data folder and only your Core Spore Data folder. Having them in any other Data folders will prioritize them over the base game packages, thus causing the pupil problem and various other part texture-related oddities.

it probably would benefit from one to be honest. also random note, if there are any features of the mod that change text files specific to the user, I might be able to write a program to modify any of that stuff automatically, if that's at all useful, idk

Spore is creative, even the mods and hacks.
Or, should I say, especially the mods and hacks?

well, im getting at that I might be able to write a program that automatically modifies user preference settings, if they can't just be replaced with a custom one. if it could be helpful then i might be able to do it.
