Spore ModAPI not working on steam

Unread post by marrow30 »

Hello everyone, I'm having a bit of an issue with modapi at the moment.

I have steam's spore installed on a windows VM, and when I try to launch the ModAPI Launcher, it gives me the error to launch the game with the ModAPI launcher. I only have the current version of Dark Injection installed, and before I installed any mods, It was working perfectly.

I also noticed it may not have carried over my resolution from my GA game, and it still logs me in with no issues.

I hope to hear from someone soon, and thank you in advance. :D

Problem fixed! I needed to install Spore from Origin to get around the issue.

...you did uninstall Steam Spore before installing Origin Spore, right?
Hello there! I'm a random guy who sometimes does *slightly* smart stuff. For a while now, I've been creating a game called Sporigins, along with Spore mods such as Solar Spore.
