Okay when I try to change the config in my spore data folder I get a message box that pops up and says Access Denied, What the hell do I do?!

Edit: I found out why it wasn't working I have both the Steam and the disc version installed. The disc version doesn't want to uninstall even if I have the disc in my disc drive. and I tried to edit the Disc version of spore instead of the steam version.

Well regardless of which version you modify, you'll need to run your text editor with Administrator privileges, or save the modified file to a location where normal users have write permissions, then copy it back to \Data\Config.

Steam Spore has a weird folder layout. I wrote a guide to understanding it and how it correlates to the Origin and retail versions, which you can find here: The Ultimate Data Folder guide.

I don't understand why but I had this working a while ago but I had to reinstall it for some reason. I did it in the exact same way but it still won't save. Please help.

Hello! ;Im sorta new here, but i tried everything listed here!
I have the origin copy of spore, and a disc copy of GA! I first tried the regular force save mod, it wasn't working.
Then i tried what this post said. at first i did it wrong, but then i corrected it. still nothing.
Then i copy pasted from the code of someone who did get it to work! but it still didn't for me!
I lastly added !!!!!!_ before the force save package name!
Is it because i have Mac? because I'm pretty sure i saved and that its in the right folder!

What folder did you install the package into? (Also I should note that there's an additional step involved on OS X/macOS, to do with the terminal...I don't recall the exact means, but IIRC it was something about marking the package as readable or something?)

That looks like you put it in the Creepy and Cute Data folder...mods go in the GA Data folder, unless the mod's author or instructions specify otherwise.

No problem. Also, if you do figure out what exactly the extra step is, PLEASE let me know what you found.

In a post on the previous page there's a link to the ForceSave package file, which is a good alternative in case this doesn't work. Have a go, I've just downloaded it for :di: with the Origin update and I'm about to test it out.

Force Save does what it says on the tin, and yes, you do need GA.
