BEFORE YOU POST...

Remember that all mods available here REQUIRE Spore: Galactic Adventures AND patch 5.1. Patch 6\Bot Parts does NOT include Patch 5.1! (Some may work on other setups, but this is recommended)

Can't get a mod to work? Feel free to ask for help, there's always someone around to help out. Just make sure to include the following information:
a) Did you install Spore from Steam, Origin, or a Disk?
b) Is your game patched to the latest version?
c) Do you have Galactic Adventures?
d) If so, is it also patched to the latest version?
e) Where did you install the mod to?
f) What is the file's current name in the folder you installed it to?
This information is needed for us to help you!

Darkspore Hero Converter

Unread post #1 by theparishofspacedust » Sun May 07, 2017 11:12 pm

I wasn't sure if there was an FAQ on this or whether the hero converter has any support now whatsoever, but it appears the darkspore hero converter isn't working, like, at all. The PNG created appears to be either a really strange Maldri model or a completely bugged model. Every fixed PNG looks identical(I'll upload it in a reply to this post shortly)and doesn't work when moving into the game. My spore client follows the installation order recommended on the site and is a disc installation patched up to the latest patch prior to the new Origin update.
The converter has been placed in a folder named DarksporeConverter on my desktop and is running as administrator. I have renamed all of the hero PNGs to the hero's name in lowercase; e.g. "wraith.png".

This is the original Seraph-XS .png, named "seraph.png"

This is the converted Seraph .png

EDIT: I also tried converting a spore creation I found on the Sporepedia. Here's the PNG;
Image

It came out the exact same as before.


If anyone else who has the converter working could try that original PNG and see if it converts, please let me know!

...welp, your PNG didn't work in my game either (which actually surprises me, normally the PNGs work in my game but not others' games, but not this time), so one reconversion later...

I'll post the working PNG later today (on mobile rn, forgot to upload it in advance last night D: )

Sorry this took so long, I got sidetracked last night .-.
Anywaves, here it is:

Let me know if that works. If so, I may ask you to do a couple of other things just to determine the exact source of the problem, so something can (hopefully) be done about it on our end. If it doesn't load, though, I have another plan...


Also, on an unrelated note...the visible thumbnail isn't a weird Maldri, it's my Char :lol:

Oddly enough I found a version of "Arakna???, the Soul Collector" in the sporepedia the other day using -that thumbnail-, so perhaps that's related to it. Anyway yeah, I'll check it out shortly, thank you again!

Seems to have worked. I wonder what's wrong with my darkspore converter.

Glad to hear that worked. All I did differently was not run the converter as Administrator and remove the <?> characters from the name in the panel before confirming. Would you mind trying that, seeing if you get a valid PNG in doing so, and reporting back on the outcome?

I'd like to report a success! Here's my imported Blitz in the creature parts editor. Thanks, man.
