    Well are you pressing yes or no on the user account control window? because you should be pressing yes

      Alright, so the achievement I was going for was the one you get when you earn 50,000g. I earned 50,000g on SMAPI while not booting it through Steam... so do I still get that achievement? It seems like it's not. How do I fix that?

        I tried this and copied everything correctly, using the right click shift to copy the path, put it into steam and then it loads up fine, just no mods. The SMAPI window doesn't even show up. What am I doing wrong?

          Not to be condescending, because I did it myself with a different game, but did you make sure that the letter at the starts of the pathway goes to your computer? It's J in the example, but for my newest computer, it's C. The one before it I would have had to have put "E:\Programfiles86\...etc"

          Basically saying that copying and pasting the link might not work depending on your computer and where you installed Steam on your computer.

            I went ahead and checked it again. It did double up on " on the front and end, yet still didn't load any mods with the start up.

            This is what I have entered into the box. %command% "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Stardew Valley\StardewModdingAPI.exe" %command%


            After posting this message I saw what was wrong. For some reason %command% was added twice. After deleting it, things are work fine. Now screen shots without using fraps is possible. Thank you.

                    Thanks very much! The full path in the start option was needed to launch without any issue. In the readme of the 1.7 SMAPI is written you have to just enter the StardewModding.exe %command% which lead to an error. But thx to you guys it works. :)

                      You guys rock. Thanks for this great tip. Was going to complain that it didn't work, but I took 1 final moment to double check everything and realised I typed like a twat. I had %commond% :rofl:

                        I think I got it working. Is a black box supposed to pop up and say things like loading mod?

                          Hello, Kyler45! If you want to have your Stardew Valley open in the StardewModdingAPI.exe, I have a solution.

                          1. Right click "Stardew Valley" in your library, and click "Properties".

                          2. Under the tab "General" click "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS...".

                          3. Type "StardewModdingAPI %command%" into the box, and click "OK".

                          Make sure StardewModdingAPI.exe is inside of the "Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley" folder! Otherwise, this will not work.

                            avengedluvee Yeah, You!

                            I've tried everything. Running as admin, not running as admin, launching through steam, and both the "StardewModdingAPI %command%" and "J:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\StardewModdingAPI.exe" %command%

                            Any solutions? Maybe it's a mod I have that is disabling it? No overlay shows and the achievements don't work. If anyone has any idea I'd very much appreciate it.
                            I'm running on Windows 10 if that helps.

                                I did the %command% thing right, the game works, achievements count, hours count, but for some reason I can't to shift+tab to open the steam overlay, which is bearable but kinda annoying. I have the most recent version of SMAPI. Any way to fix it, or anyone else having that problem?
