Before installing DI 9.r I had mods installed, but I removed them all after the game crashed.
After I removed all the mods except for DI 9.r the game still crashed.

I removed all the mods, including DI 9.r, and the game launched. It did not crash.
After I installed DI 9.r (justDI 9.r, not even force save), the game crashed again. And it keeps crashing.

I installed DI 9.r with the Spore ModAPI Easy Installer.

I have Spore, Galactic Adventures and Creepy & Cute Parts all patched to v5.1.

Public Beta 2.3.2 was supposed to be released yesterday specifically to address this issue, but IRL prevented me from having a chance to update the website. It's up now.


Oh, okay then. I'll download it later because my Internet is not the best:/

Update: It works! Yay! Thank you!

That having been said, while I haven't a clue if there's any hope of doing so, I'd definitely like to bring the Spore ModAPI Launcher Kit to macOS...but without regular access to someone who has a mac of some sort, I have no way of even being able to investigate the possibility of doing so.




Any chance you'd be open to lending a hand?


Sure! I'll be happy to contribute to this!

Great to hear. If you use Discord, I think that would be a better place to meet up to discuss this further, if you're open to that...

Alright, I'm there. See you soon.

Great to hear. Sorry about all the trouble, to both of you. Here's hoping it'll be smooth sailing from here on out, but if not, please, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

I'm having a problem installing the mod, the easy installer gives me an error. The problem is a DirectoryNotFoundException caused by the program trying to read the C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Data folder, when obviously that doesn't exist

Is there any way to change the editor back to how it is in vanilla? I have a lot of trouble placing parts because I am not familiar with the darkspore editor layout.

Are you still having this problem?

While I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "the editor", I can say with certainty that the answer to your question is yes, as all of DI's features are optional.
Image
To access the DI configurator, simply open the ModAPI Easy Uninstaller and click the center of the gear icon next to the entry for DI.

That having been said, if you're currently using the Full Darkspore UI, I would encourage you to try to get used to it before going back - it may be a bit of an adjustment, but the Full Darkspore UI is worth it in most cases, as it does bring in a number of functional advantages over the Core Spore UI, and takes up less screen real-estate in the editor. (Also there is a known bug in DI 9.r Public Beta 2.3.2 which breaks the Flexible Editor Camera's vertical repositioning behaviour unless the Full Darkspore UI or Darkspore Beta UI is in use, though this will be corrected in the next public build.)

Again though, it's your choice. While I wouldn't recommend rolling back, I believe that choice is important, so I'd be a hypocrite to not provide the option to use the Core Spore UI. If you do decide that the trade-off isn't worth it, you do have the option to go back to the Core Spore UI.

I had to Factory Reset my PC, and I reinstalled all my mods. But Spore crashes!

Also I’m using a old Dark injections because the new Dark injections is a .cnrdownload file, so the spore mod APi won’t work.

No it doesn't, that just means the download was interrupted. Try downloading it again.

Okay, I completely missed that part of your post, sorry about that.

Did Spore ever work after the factory reset?

I found them but it still crashes, so does the main game.


I finally got it to work, I still have to use the old Dark Injection, I got the current Dark Injection to work. But only for a minute or two.

Well then clearly all is not as it should be, there is no reason for which you should be stuck with an older version of Dark Injection. Care to elaborate?

Well, the SporeModAPi Launcher doesn’t work.

Care to elaborate? What does "doesn't work" look like?

Use the Spore: ModAPI Easy Installer.
Afterwards, launch the game through the ModAPI launcher.

My main account broke a while ago, so I created this alt.
