And that´s how the mod works. It uses the darkspore textures for both, Darkspore parts and regular Spore parts.

And this is right... if you wanna play with darkspore textures.
Do you wanna play with regular textures for regular Spore parts? Do the next..

Rename the Arenas packages (both) like this -->
ZArenas_RDX9.package
ZArenas_Textures.package
Just add Z at the beginning of the name, and put in the SPORE/Data folder (only the Arenas packages)
C:Program FilesElectronic ArtsSPOREData (not SPORE_EP1)
This still gonna show the icons colored but the models will be the regular ones with regular textures.

Are you having problem with EADM?
Patch the game manually. To download Patch 1.5.1 -->
http://www.moddb.com/games/spore/downlo ... tch-5-v105
This patch make Spore to version 1.05.001 and Spore GA to version 1.01

Try to install again following this -->
1- Spore Game
2- Patch 1.5.1 (for Spore Game)
3- C&C
4- Spore GA
5- Patch 1.5.1 (AGAIN, for Spore GA)
Optional
6- Dr Pepper/Bots parts (this will patch to version 1.06 and adds the bots parts)

And tell us if this time works as you wish.

OK so good news and bad news good news is adding z to the arenas worked and fixed the texture/ color problem bad news is i still cant patch GA the Dr pepper/bot parts went in but i still cant patch it past 1.1 never mind 1.5.1i believe it might be eadm but Ive reinstalled and uninstalled at least 6 times and the mod-db download says it just patch just says its up to date(also tried uninstalling games then reinstalling in said order above)

OK. Let's see.

Try with this version of the patch 1.5.1. I uploaded the one I'm using.

http://www.4shared.com/file/6ILykvog/sp ... _v5_1.html

I assume that you always install the EADM. Next time DON'T install it. And patch the game manually.

Also..

Latest version of Spore Game --> 1.06 /// I recommend to stay at version 1.05.0001
Latest version of Spore GA --> 1.01

Next time use this as guide using the install order -->

1- Spore Game --- Game installed
2- Patch 1.5.1 --- Patch Spore to 1.05.0001
3- C&C --- C&C Installed
4- Spore GA -- GA installed
5- Patch 1.5.1 --- Patch GA to 1.01
Everything is alright... Congratulations, you have a perfect install !!!!

Using the Dr pepper and patching to 1.06 is up to you.
It's no neccessary cause DarkInjection includes that bot parts.

Hi, me again. I'm still having a problem with the normal Spore textures with Dark Injection but I believe that it is because of the package files.

However, I did find out something when I stated that the orange handle missing in the Creature Editor. It's not because I goofed with Spore, it's because the files that Dark Injection needs had to be put in in a certain order and most of the time, it doesn't work. Also, if you caused a glitch that the Orange handles in the Creature Editor are missing, the sqaure handle will be absent as well.

Dooweep, I did take your advice for me playing the normal Spore textures with Dark Injection and it worked, but most of the C & C parts are still colouried by the files, even when I did put the package data in a certain folder for it to work.

You have to download just once but run twice (look again install order)

Hi GB :)
Have you all installed in the right order? I told you the same as to cmt. Check it out again.
I´m playing with regular textures and have no problem with C&C parts.

Most of the people (me too) enter the captain editor, exit and then enter in creature editor. This makes the game recognizes the orange transformers (only avalaible for captain parts) and the sinking cube transformers (avalaible for most of darkspore parts).

YES.
DarkIcons and DarkInjection on Spore GA (SPORE_EP1/Data folder)
ArenasRDX9 and Arenas_textures on Spore Game (both renamed, on SPORE/Data folder)

That´s how I have installed and it´s working without problem.

OMG!

I really don't know :?

You have the right install and the mod files are in the proper place.
The only difference with mine is the darkicons named with 2011 at beggining (like v 5.2) but this shouldn't be a problem. Also, the Arenas packages I'm using have some more weight .
Where and how did you get these ones (Arenas packages) ??
Even if those two are wrong files at least you should see the icons, Can you see the icons?
Or even if you can't see the icons or models.. Can you see the tabs and pages?

Sorry, my mistake :oops:
I've made some test and I believe that now I know exactly what you're referring to.
It's a modding error. No matter what you do, you can't solve it.
Wait a little. I fixed this for v6.
