Error

Unread postby LinkER324 » Sun Mar 05, 2017 1:17 pm

Hey guys! Sorry if I post this in a wrong thread. I'm registered a few hours ago. And sorry if I'm too late to ask about Spore. I hope you have a nice day. But I have a horrible one. :x Here's why:
When I made my very first mod, and I wanted to pack it with SporeMaster, an error popped up:

System.Exception: Error packing file 'spacetools~\Colonyplus.prop.xml'.-->
System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.
at System.Number.StringToNumber(String str, NumberStyles options,
NumberBuffer& number, NumberFormatInfo info, Boolean parseDecimal)

SporeMaster.MainWindow.<>c_DisplayClassa. <Pack_Mod_Click>b_9(PleaseWait progress)
at SporeMaster.PleaseWait.<>c_DisplayClass4. <.ctor>b_2()
:?: :?:

I don't have an image file. What can be the problem? I know, it says 'Input string was not in a correct format.' But I double checked everything, and everything was fine. Even if I modify an unmodified file (e.g. someone other's), this error pops up. But sometimes, if I modify another file (e.g. creatureabilities\superpower_carnivore.prop.xml), it works.

Can you...post the contents of the affected file?

Okay, found the problem. My system uses the "," decimal character, not the "." decimal character in the file. Great.
