Spore: General / Re: Poll: Have you had any issues with the patch?

Sorry I've updated the poll to add a "no problems" option.

Spore: General / Poll: Have you had any issues with the patch?
« on: September 22, 2008, 03:55:49 am »
From the patch notes it seems the Spore team has released an awesome patch which addresses issues voiced by the community, so they are definately listening :)
However there has been some issues with the patch as well so I thought it'd be a good idea to see how many people are are having patch woes.
OpDDay2001 has made an excellent thread to hightlight the various specific issues, but this is more of a hand count to see how many has and hasn't had problems, and whether they have any mods installed to find out if there is a corelation.

UPDATE 23/09/08 @ 10:30AM GMT
Poll updated to include the option that you've not been able to install the patch at all.

I'm happy I've been away from Spore for a week. I would have so totally installed the patch if I hadn't, and I would so have been frustrated if I was one of the unlucky few.

I think I'll just keep playing WoW and doing those Brewfest runs until a patch-patch is released ^_^

My eyes are totally rolling at EA.
Totally. Do you hear that EA? You're being eyerolled. You need to rethink your system.

I might even say I am DAMNED eyerolling you. Because damn, this is just...

Does anyone have a couple of "that" compared to "this" screenshots so we can see if there is a difference? :)

Do what I did. Take a bunch of your old creations from back in the CC days and dress them up in space outfits. Slowly but surely you should start seeing more of your own guys, at least, in Space. I also notice from my events window that other people started coming across my space guys as well.

Aye, that's likely to help - I may do that. I'd prefer other people's creatures but if they're not creating them fast enough I guess I'll have to adapt ;)

Agreed.  I think there are way to may paranoid people out there against EA and that leads to the whole "OMG STEALTH PATCHEZ!!1!!!" belief.

Don't get me wrong, I am not a fan of EA overall, but as their recent change to the number of accounts has proven, they are just a company that listens to the majority of their customers, and try to do what they think is best.  I am pretty sure we will be made aware of all patches that are downloaded and client side. ;)

You misinterpreted my intention Legion.
I was not referring to conspiracies. I was referring to Lucky/Caryl's promise of a patch last week. However it may have been a server patch whereas I assumed it had been a client patch there was talk about.

This is true, I also enjoyed it :)
I may do something similar... or I might if 80% of the space races in my game wasn't Maxis o_O
Perhaps in another save.

Sorry, I was under the impression a patch was installed recently to fix some client issues, but I may have confused a server patch with that. I really can't be arsed looking for the information I think I'm referring to right now, so I'm just assuming you're right instead :P

I felt the same when I slaughtered the 5 followers of Spode hellbent on my destruction :)
Though it was a hard fight I was still one of the lucky ones. While it was early on in my game, I had managed to make one ally, a bit of money, and had a chance to fight my way out.

Long but hard fight  (on easy o.O), but very satisfying :)

Well we know there's been at least one "silent patch", so in theory I guess we could have gotten any number of them I guess.

It would be really nice to see some patch notes on the whole patchyness, and a notice that we've been patched.
I'm not at home right now so I can't check, but is there a version number available in the main menu somewhere? We might be able to figure it out that way.

Spore: General / Re: The More I Play Civ...
« on: September 18, 2008, 06:07:48 am »
You know, I never really enjoyed Civ that much. More than Tribal but it was fairly quickly over with.
Reading this though, I think if maybe I crank up the difficulty it has more meat than I've allowed it so far. That's cool, I'm gonna give it a whirl and see if that can spark some life into it :)
I like to squeeze as much as I can out of the phases. I've spent the most time in Space so far, but i think it would be a shame if the other phases were just "steps on the way" which they have been so far (apart from my first playthrough, because that was a journey where I savoured each step for as long as I could stretch it.

When I was playing creature stage I decided to check out how the flying mechanic works so I just some incest wings on and was pleasently suprised that flying worked completely I was expecting maybe flying just mean hover and moving parrellel to the ground.

*lol* yeah I was actually thinking about you when I first read this :P It's a shame it didn't happen a bit earlier so you didn't have to go buy another copy, but cool that it did happen eventually none the less :)
