So it's the name I click when I turn on my computer? That must be my admin account then. Now that I know, what do I do now?

Is the name in question "Administrator"?

This is a new hard drive if it helps so never been installed on it before. I downloaded Dark Injector and the Spore API. Installed DI no problem. But in game nothings seems to have changed like in the examples it gives you during installation. Did I do something wrong?

On a side note, does the complexity part of the mod let you use UFOs (for example) that are over the complexity limit? I know back then you couldn't. Thanks

Have you previously had the game installed from somewhere other than Origin on your previous hard drive?

Okay, I have no idea how I got this to work, but now all the sounds are back and I am able to ally other tribes.

However, even with the mod installed, I am not able to access my creations made with the mod's parts. I have everything installed (at least I believe I do). What am I missing here?

What do you mean when you say you're "not able to access" your creations made with DI's parts? Is there a padlock icon on the Sporepedia cards for them?

Yep, there is a padlock icon. If I wish to view the creation, it says I do not have what is installed.

Right...that sometimes happens if you run Spore after uninstalling the mods a creation requires. Sometimes the game doesn't notice if you reinstall the mods.

Ah okay. Do I just need to reinstall it again?

...I'd thought you were implying you already had. Yes, absolutely do that.

I've reinstalled the mod, but the padlock icons remain unfortunately.

I apologize, I'm not that good with computers ^^'

Then you've been screwed over by caching, unfortunately. Sorry. Best hope they disappear on their own eventually, which they may or may not.

Don't worry about that, lol
