there is no easy craft option
See previous post by Caliber with video on how to make it work properly. I think you're doing it out of order.
...and it wouldn't have to be this complicated if it weren't for the 10 million anti-cheats in the offline game added by the game devs, so you can thank them for that.
You were correct I had it in wrong order, so after I rewatched video, BUT I started game, then started MHWRestCRC, and it still gave me the same error.
