Game just crashes when I try to open creature editor

Forum rules
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!

Game just crashes when I try to open creature editor

Unread postby Hexdragon » Mon Dec 16, 2019 2:11 pm

So I have been on a quest to unlock unlimited part sizes and unlimited parts and so I installed them mod, I checked Core spore UI (another time I chose shimmer UI) and choose forest background then unticked everything except the infinite complexity. When I start the game with the ModAPI and go and try to edit stuff the game crashes. (I have both Steam and Origin version installed)

You answered your own question: "(I have both Steam and Origin version installed)" don't do that.

oh how I love spore XD I uninstalled the steam version, then the origin one threw an 1004 and it didn't seemed to work so I reinstalled the steam version, and origins is so stuff that I can't uninstall the origin version because I think they just forgot to add a bleeding uninstaller XD

Right, about that...you'll need to nuke both versions entirely. If you run into any trouble along the way, see below:

Someone at Maxis or something wrote:To manually uninstall the game, please use a tool called REVO to completely uninstall the game.

You can download and install REVO by following the link below:
http://www.revouninstaller.com/start_fr ... nload.html

Once we download and install REVO go head and start up the program and follow the instructions below:
1. Right click on the [Spore] Icon, select the option to Uninstall
2. Once we select the Uninstall, go ahead and select the Advanced bubble and click Next
3. It will now uninstall [Spore] and then scan for left over Registry files
4. Make sure only to check the BOLD Registry Files and then select the option to Delete them
5. Click Next
6. It will now scan for left of files and when can press Select All and then press Delete to remove them
7. Click Next or Finish
(repeat the above for all Spore expansions)
8. We can now close out of the REVO program

If you no longer want REVO on your computer you can always uninstall it by following the instructions below:
1. Click on your Start Menu
2. Go to All Programs or Programs
3. Locate REVO Uninstaller
4. From REVO Uninstaller select Uninstall REVO Uninstaller

Wellll I did the uninstallation, I did deleted all the registry and everything spore related, and then installed the origin version. Then installed a color picker mod, and the creature editor still just crashes the game ><
I'm stumped. :<

You must've either forgotten to uninstall and reinstall Dark Injection, or done so too early. So...just uninstall Dark Injection, and then reinstall it. Let me know if that does anything useful.

No problem. It's always nice to have confirmation that the problem is, in fact, resolved.
