Wait, wat? So...is everything up and running now? Or do you mean the uninstall process worked?

Yeah, and not because of the Uninstall.
I Think that Origin failed to intall all the files

Yeah, I've heard that Origin can be a bit finicky every now and then. So, is the mod working? ._.

BetterSpore: I doubt they'd conflict, but BetterSpore is not compatible with any versions of Spore which Dark Injection is compatible with, so that will cause issues.
OrbitSpore: I doubt they'd conflict, but you never know. Try them and see. If they do conflict, the 9.r update's componentized construction may allow you to remove the components which cause the problem, depending on the issue.
PlatinumSpore: Same as OrbitSpore.

well, no, everything was fine, but, no animations to teh models, i uninstalled everything, and reisntalled, same thing, difference is that it crashes now, still can't uninstall the Expansions and Botparts.
I've seen posts in the Spore forum fo Rebecca1208 having the same problem
http://k.min.us/ikGVeM.png <--- her problem
but, now the Spore FAQ is offline, http://help.spore.com/app/answers/list/ ... l/search/1 " {"error":"invalid_request","error_description":"redirect_uri is invalid"}
So... i think i will have to reboot my computer, which i don't want to, I have many other games installed here (Like GTAV which is 60GB)
I don't know what i should do :/

Uhh...I'd say shut down your computer, then turn it on again, and see if you can then uninstall the things after doing that.
I do have another plan for if that doesn't work...but it's a pretty drastic measure, so let's hope we won't have to go there.

Yes.

EDIT: Actually, some parts of the mod may be semi-functional without Galactic Adventures, but really...just use Galactic Adventures. Tons of mods require it.

There's no way around it. If there were, the mod wouldn't require GA :lol:

I'm having severe problems with the spore 1.5.1 patch I downloaded from here: http://davoonline.com/sporemodder/rob55 ... /DI9r.html .
Whenever I open the creator, and attach anything to the body in any way, spore crashes. I really need help!
I have no signature whatsoever.
Except this one.

Try this:
1. Go to your Galactic Adventures Data folder
2. Copy "EP1_PatchData.package" to the "SPORE_EP1" ("Spore Galactic Adventures" on Origin) folder, as a backup (in case anything goes wrong)
3. Download and extract SporeMaster ( http://www.sporebase.com/forum/index.php?topic=2417.0 )
4. In the SporeMaster folder, rename "reg_file.txt" to "reg_filez.txt"
5. Create a new blank txt file in the same folder called "reg_file.txt"
6. Open SporeMaster (run it as Administrator if you're on Windows Vista or later)
7. In the "Mod" tab, browse to your Galactic Adventures Data folder and select EP1_PatchData.package, then click "Unpack"
8. In the "Files" tab, locate a folder called "editorsPackages~" or "#40404000", then click "Explore right".
9. The Explorer Window which just opened should display the contents of those folders. If it does, press ALT+UP. If it instead takes you to a folder called "EP1_PatchData.package.unpacked", just find those folders and delete them.
10. Go back to SporeMaster, go to the "Mod" tab and click "Pack".
11. Wait for SporeMaster to finish repacking your mod.
12. ???
13. PROFIT!! ^-^

I don't have GA or Origin, I just wanted the patch.
Should I just delete the installation file?

Wait, I thought you wanted the patch so you could use Dark Injection, but if you don't have GA, then that can't be right, so...why are you asking this on the Dark Injection FAQ?

Definitely not

Oh, okay. Just don't install Patch 5 before installing GA!

Cross your fingers and hope GA will still install (which IIRC it can, but Spore is unpredictable so idk)
For future reference, here's the correct install order:
Core Spore > Creepy and Cute > Galactic Adventures > Patch 5.1
The ommission of Bot Parts was deliberate. That "patch" breaks more stuff than it fixes. Heck, it can permanently prevent you from reinstalling the game should you need to uninstall and reinstall it!
