Hero Editor not working after updating ModAPI

Unread postby MewtwoFanz » Fri Feb 14, 2020 12:40 pm

I updated ModAPI to the latest version recently, while Dark Injections was installed. I NEVER had this problem until now, but somehow, when I updated it, the Hero editor background stopped working. Even though it's set to the Hero Editor, it instead gives me the Core Spore Editor. Even with other editors it changes them to core spore, too (Yes, I made sure). I really want the Hero Editor working again, It's my favorite editor. If anyone can help me find a solution to this glitch, that would be much appreciated. Thank you for reading.

What other mods do you have installed?

Here is a full list of my currently installed mods. I have installed a few new mods since the last time you helped me (Thanks Again!).

Btw, apparently when I just opened the uninstaller to obtain the screenshots, it told me there is another new update, and it asked me if I wanted to install it. I decided not to for the time being, just so I don't accidentally make the problem worse.

Mystery probably solved: Uninstall Advanced CE.

If uninstalling Advanced CE resolves the problem, then you can - and should - definitely update.

Hey, I uninstalled advanced ce, and updated ModAPI, and somehow, it worked! Thanks again for your help!

No surprise there. When two incompatible mods are installed simultaneously, uninstalling one of them tends to help. (Yes, I'm implying that DI and Advanced CE are incompatible, unfortunately.)
