Due to an unexpected database update fail, the forum had to undergo a reset to an August backup. This sadly means all new user registations and content posted between 08-08-2020 and 12-24-2020 has been wiped. We apologize for the inconvenience and have taken measures to prevent this error from happening in the future.

Having trouble with the Spore ModAPI

Unread post by gemboundprism »

1. When I try to open the Easy Installer, nothing happens. I've tried using the right click open, double click open, and even using 'Open With' on the mod I want to install and then selecting the installer, but nothing.
2. When I try delete these things like the easy installer (since they didn't work), my file tab crashes and the mod api files I want to delete don't get deleted. I think it may or may not have added these crash files I have.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Am I opening the Easy Installer wrong? I've been waiting days to apply Dark Injections (had to wait about 10 hours for it to install!) and it's really annoying me how that time is going to waste because Spore ModAPI is being stubborn! Surely there's a workaround!

Not sure what could be causing that, but I've alerted Emd of the problem. Hopefully he'll be better able to help. He may need your assistance in diagnosing and fixing the problem though.

In the meantime, there are manual installation files for Dark Injection available, although bear in mind that future Beta releases will not provide that option due to the maintenance demands and the fact that, by that time, the ModAPI Launcher will be required regardless of whether or not it was used for installation.

Could I have a link to the manual installs?

Any word on the issue?
Edit: I now get the 'choose which mod to install thing' come up (i restart my computer for various reasons, which deleted the clingy api stuff) but im still curious as to why this happened, and if it can be fixed to prevent this problem happening to anyone else
