Dark Injection Sporepedia Problems

Unread post by Snaid1 »

Not sure where else to post this so here it goes. I'm trying to download the creations from the Dark Injection Sporepedia here at DavoOnline.com, and can't seem to get the creations into my game. I have the Dark Injection Mod installed and working correctly. I've tried downloading the picture into "My Spore Creations" Folder as well as just trying to drop it into the editor.
Any help on this subject would be appreciated.

PS. Fantastic Job on the Mod so far Davo!

I'm using dark injection version 5.2 on Spore GA following you're setup guide(patch 5.1). I also tried downloading the creation I uploaded(created with DI 5.2 installed) and have the same problem. so it's either me, or the DI sporepedia. Is anyone else having the same problem?

are you saving the black bacground pics? you need to save the creature once you have clicked on the image as far as it would take you.

basically, click the pic until its the only thing on the screen

I'll double check that and let you know how it goes, thanks.

Edit: I was using the black background pics, but I still have the same problem with the White background pics. doesn't show up in the sporepedia when saved to my spore creations and won't load when I use Drag & Drop. If it makes a difference, I tested it with the creations "Abbadon" and "Robocyde". (Robocyde won't drag and drop, I didn't save it since I made it and the original still works.)

Edit 2: Still having the problems with the DI sporepedia, but was able to get toon2's avatar which is a DI creation he said I could download.

Edit 3:still not sure what's wrong, but I tried downloading the creations on another computer and transferring them to my spore computer with a flash drive and they worked. I guess it's just something my computer doesn't like about the DIS. thanks for all the help everyone.

Edit 4(is there an edit limit?): for anyone having this problem. I was able to solve it completely by downloading the creations (white background) onto my computer and then drag & dropping the downloaded file into the editor. since I tried it that seems to be the only method on my spore computer that works with every creation I try to download. Thanks again for the help and I hope this thread helps anyone else having a problem.

U said click on the black bkgd pix until I see white ones, but after I click 2X, it just says "Do you want to save _________ from davoonline.com?" and if I hit Save, it saves it in FILE fromat. Yep, Just what I said. FILE format.

rob55rod. I clicked the image until it gave me the white background pic. then I did the steps I mentioned in my post above(the one with all the edits.) Take a look and see if that has anything that could help you.
