Spore crashes when I try to edit a DI creation

Unread post #1 by Sir Keksalot » Wed Sep 27, 2017 7:04 pm

So a while back, I downloaded DarkEdge's Darkspore hero packs, and I can open and edit most of the heroes just fine,
including the cyber heroes, using the hotfix she provided. However, for some reason, the game crashes when I try to open Goliath (found here:https://rebecca1208.deviantart.com/art/Spore-Darkspore-Hero-Pack-2-of-5-59299456994569).
I can view him in the Sporepedia, but clicking "edit" will crash the game. The screen turns black as if it's transitioning into the editor,
it gets stuck loading for a few seconds, and boom--the game has crashed. Why is this ONLY happening with Goliath? Can I do something to fix it? I really want to see how Goliath's made, and I can't do that very well if I can't see him in the editor.

here are the darkspore characters from the game and creature converter anyway: https://mega.nz/#!IMZkyTha!lhGIM8_BzLtPnTYn00n0nvr-ssPFDoDutQZiVkA5a8w, https://www.mediafire.com/file/dxoh8q1hp9pdowp/Darkspore%20Creature%20Converter%2012-26-2016.exe

(to use the converter just run the image with the .exe that you want in spore then drag the fixed image into spore(you need :di: 2.0.6 up to use them))

I'm sorry, I don't want to sound ungrateful, because this is actually really dope. But...I have no idea what this instruction means. I can't open the hero converter, and I'm not sure I want to find out what happens if I try to open one of these .png's in Spore. So what exactly do I do, step-by-step idiot-proof instructions, to get one of these creatures in Spore?

Oh, papa bless. This is exactly what I needed, thanks. Now maybe I can scrap those god-awful Destructor recreations for the real deal.

EDIT: Goliath STILL crashes the game, even after using this method. I don't know what it is that's causing this, but it's got me pretty mad.

So there's nothing I can do to just edit him, save for manually recreating him (which I by no means have the skills to do)?

For the moment, yes, unfortunately.

The game also crashes if a converted Darkspore creature has any GA parts.

Well, RIP the dream, then. Maybe I can load in one of his variants and modify it into his Alpha form.

Actually at one point after just installing the di 2.1.6 I could load him for a while so while I still could I replaced the microtech scanner on his chest with another one of the Cyber eyes, I'll send it as soon as I'm on my computer

Of course I only see this AFTER I attempt to recreate him from a variant, kek. But thanks, I'll make good use of those purple highlights that are somehow there even though the detail and coat colors seem to be yellow and silver, respectively.

Also, I don't know why, but none of the fixed files for Arcturus seem to work. The game just does nothing when I try to add them. Weird.

Ach, guess I'll have to improve my reverse-engineering of him that I manually made and which sucks. Oh well, I can probably make him look decent in time.

Oh, uh...wow. Thanks. You're really coming through for me with everything I'm complaining about.

Hm...oh, uh, well, I suuuuuure wish I had a girlfriend! WOE IS MEEEEEEEEeeeeeee

Also, should a DI creature's feet be sinking into the floor? Because they are and I'm not sure if that's normal. This is with every DI foot as far as I can tell, and it only happens outside the editor.

The feet thing is a known bug, and I'm still not really sure what causes it...
