Update Materials

Unread postby Delegero » Tue Feb 03, 2015 3:04 am

Hello all.
My question may be so strange, but i need to force start Spore in "first start" mode.
I have a pirate version of steam Spore.
In first start, Spore show me "Update materials". And not show me that again. So... A tried many versions of Spore. And each versions have a first start.
I tried to create Unlimited Complexity for steam Spore.
Today i unpack DI-mod in Data and DataEP1. (it work incorrectly in past, but change editors and add parts) And nothing. Spore dont see this. And don`t looking in folder, i think.

So, i need to start "update materials", but i dont know. how i can do it. Anybody know?

P.S: sorry for my english. Not my mother tongue.

Hmm...

...I know of a message, "updating content database", but that has nothing to do with installing mods, so we might not be talking about the same thing. That message comes up when an expansion is installed, or sometimes when a patch is installed. Steam Spore is not very modifiable. I'd recommend you buy a disk, or, if you have to pirate Spore, go for the Disk or Origin versions.

Forget how, I'm more curious about WHY!

There is no "first start mode", but you could delete your save file to bring up that message. It probably won't do anything, though. The Steam thing is probably the cause, as Steam Spore is very unreliable. The Disk and Origin versions are better.

I would have to recommend getting a legal version of either the retail game or off of Origin. Many of the mods here don't work well on pirated copies, and often times don't work on the Steam version.

That's not just mods here, it's mods everywhere.

Steam Spore is terrible. So is Piracy.


Spore modding is a forbidden Artf orm in EAxis' eyes, so (as far as I'm concerned) they probably deliberately messed Steam Spore up, so it couldn't be modded.

Yay. colourful posts.

This is no good...
Thank you for your advice. But the question was no answer.
Any ideas?

Spore mods work correctly for me and most of Sporepedia2 people, which use pirated Spore versions.
You can change your Spore language adding -locale:es-es at the shortcut path.
