Woot! The Origin version works like a charm. I guess I'm just going to uninstall the Steam one and use the Origin one. Never thought I'd say that! Thanks for your help GBAura! The link to the Origin reminded me that I could just transfer it all to Origin. This took forever, but I finally found a means of doing it!

Is it already known that the Necro wing is only defect in the editor and does work in the preview-window as well as ingame? I'm playing with a creature that has these wings and they work just fine. As I'm new here and haven't read the entire thread I'm not sure but I thought it might be worth to be mentioned :'D Sorry if it was already known.

DumSquirrel: Glad to hear that you got Dark Injection up and running! The Origin thing I stated, it's just I heard it from someone else and I can't confirm it myself since I don't use the program (not a huge fan of EA's other games, seems too realistic for my liking), it's a long story so I won't get into it.

Schwarznebel: It's is a glitch with the model, both Necrowing and Tearoar Print do this, they're fine outside of the editor.

EA has a lot of different games, I'm not sure what you mean by "too realistic." lol If you are referring to Maxis' other games, then yeah, since they are mostly all sim games, and I can understand that. For some reason I really enjoy the sims though. :D

For whatever reason, the Origin version does the same thing as Steam now. It no longer shows the Dark Injection intro screen and will no longer force save. I don't know what the hell changed.

EDIT:
It's almost as if the Steam version clouded over to Origin, bringing with it the files that stop force save from working. After I uninstalled the Steam version, Origin Spore stopped working, even though they used to be separate files. I got to save two creatures before it stopped working again. I guess I'll reinstall...

EDIT 2:
And now it won't let me uninstall because it says there are expansion packs installed, though I uninstalled them already. I guess I'll restart my computer and wait another 9 hours for it all to install again, in the case that I can manage to uninstall it first. Then hopefully the mod will work again...

Well, my Spore installation is all kinds of messed up. I can't uninstall base Spore from Origins because I apparently still have the expansions, then it says I can't install the expansions because I don't have the base game. I don't understand. It was all working so well, and now I can't even open regular Spore from Origin without it crashing on startup. Something about opening Spore on steam when I had it installed through Origin linked the two installations together and when I uninstalled steam, it broke the installation. I guess I'm done posting. It's all basically gone to hell and is no longer in the realm of the mod, so I don't need to be here anymore. Thanks for your help though, it worked for a bit. :(

maybe you could reinstall the steam one? or manually clear all the origin data and reinstall origin?

I did get rid of the Origin data already and then reinstalled it and that didn't work, but I just reinstalled the Steam one and it is functioning. Now to install the expansions and then the Origin version again. :/ Thanks for the suggestions though. :)

Only replace a texture? You made the flora textures as new creature textures, can't you do that again?

I think Dooweep is the one who did this, as he did a lot of work to push Dark Injection this far for V6, I don't know what happened to him.

The Paint XMLs are in #406A0200. if you search the name of the paints, then it brings you to where they are in the pallete.

the thing i need help with though, is how did you replace the texture, and where does the texture need to go?

I know it is on the third, second, or first line down at that bottom section,

i just don't know where you found the textures to edit them. i need that info.
(plz give as much info as possible, i want to put in or replicate/re-create the ds textures.)

the .rw4 is what i changed, and to get the new one to change color, the .dds has to be white, all white.
