Photoshop version: CC 2018

Action: https://graphicriver.net/item/rise-photoshop-action/10695658 

Issue: I haven't used actions very much, but whenever I try to play this action I got off GraphicDrivers, most of my commands played are "Unavailable", therefore my image does not look like it is supposed to by the end of the action. I tried checking these boxes to see if that "enables" them but it doesn't check or anything. Am I missing any plug-ins or files for my photoshop?

Troubleshooting actions step by step is not unexpected, especially not if you get them from somewhere else. Often it can be enough that you change some preference, and suddenly an action step that relies on that preference won't work as expected.

Command not available or not supported in this version of Photoshop is a common error massage action see when an action is played on documents that does not have something the action depend on.   Most actions have some dependencies. Most actions will not work on any document. A document need to have what is required for the action steps execution.   For example an action can not save a selection as an alpha channel if there is no active selection.    A prior step may have been Select Color Range red.   If there is no red in the document no selection will be made. So the Save Selection command will not be available and the Save selection step will fail with Command is not available.  The action depends on the documents having some red pixels.

Photoshop actions are always a gamble, some work as described and some will never work. This is why they are cheap.
