Asterisk Bug (help!)
« on: September 21, 2008, 12:58:01 pm »
All of the text in spore has changed to asterisks!

The only text that is not asterisks is player-entered text, like the names of creatures.

How can I fix it without reinstalling and losing all my stuff?

You messed up your language files. Get another language.

Okay. How do I get another language? I never did anything to change the language in the first place. I have never changed or edited any of the game files, either.

They finally added a wordfilter then.

Have a look at the properties of your desktop shortcut.
If it has -locale:en-us on the end, try changing it to -locale:en-gb, or vice-versa.
