Causes and Solutions

There are only 2 reasons as to why this error message will pop-up when attempting to install the suit. Here are all the possible reasons why this issue might be popping up:

Case #1: The suit mod is incompatible with the tool

Not all suit mods are compatible with the tool, as stated on the mod’s page. Try disabling each mod until the issue stops. Note that that suits from Spider-Man: Remastered are incompatible with Spider-Man: Miles Morales, so if you’re using any such suit mods, disable them and try launching the game.

Case #2: Using a newer version of the tool

Due to an unexplainable error, the newer version of the Suit Adding Tool is incompatible with some compatible mods, hence the error message. To resolve this issue, you simply need to download an older version of the tool, preferably version 1.2. To download the older version of the tool follow the steps below:

  1. Open up the Suit Adding Tools’ NexusMods page and click on Files.

    Click on “Files”
  2. Under the Old Files section, you’ll find version 1.2 of the Suit Adding Tool. Click on Manual Download to begin downloading it. You can use the Mod Manager download option if you’ve got Vortex installed.
    Click on “Manual Download”
  3. Finally, to begin downloading the tool, click on Slow Download. If you’ve got Nexus Mods’ Premium subscription, you can choose Fast Download.
    Click on “Slow Download”
