Spore: General / Independent back-up of creature creation files
« on: November 21, 2008, 09:32:32 am »
I'm concerned about possible loss of creatures that I've created due to computer crash.
Is it possible to independently back up creature creation files on my computer to DVD?

Alright so i have the problem with nothing happening when i start my spore game. I've tried what you listed, but even when no other program is active, still nothing happens! Help please!
Much appreciated


I assume you've had the game running OK on your computer on previous occasions? My game doesn't start up straight away. I have to wait a while, then it appears to crash, then it minimizes as an icon on the bottom task bar. After a short while again, this icon activates and then when I click on it the game comes on.

Are you experiencing anything like this, or don't you get any response at all? If you haven't been able to run the game at all, are you sure that your computer is powerful enough to run the program properly? Mine just sneaks in, as my laptop is two years old and I only have a CPU of 1.7 GHz, not 2 which is specified.

I hope that I have been of some assistance to you.



Hi aku_mulator,

Thanks for your helpful advice. However, since I posted my query I have downloaded the latest Spore patch and the screen capture function is working again now. Thanks anyway.  :)

Best regards,


I'm having trouble with in-game screen capture. I was able to do this before installing the latest patch, but now my game crashes every time I hit the 'C' key while I'm in-game.
I'd very much appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Hi Blulightning,

Thanks for the information. That makes sense as a Maxis creature appeared in the place of the creature that I deleted.


Spore: General / Accidental deletion of in-game creatures

Recently I reviewed my creations and deleted several creatures. One of mine was in my game, but after the deletions I noticed that it wasn't there anymore.                                                                                                                                                   After the initial creation of that particular creature, I made a modification and saved it separately. I then deleted the first one. It was the first one that was in my game.                                                                                                           
I then realized that by deleting it from my creations page, I had deleted it from my game as well. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Hi Ondaderthad!

Congratulations on totalling yet another epic creature! You're getting quite a reputation as an Epicslayer now! With the slaying of the Micin, that makes two that I've heard of in recent times.
I tried to look up the Micin but there are so many! Who created the epic Micin that you slew? I want to get a look at this beastie! The spotted Yorpirdan sure was a mean and dangerous looking fellow!

Regarding epic creature slaying, I need your advice! There's an epic bee-like creature in my gamescape that killed one of my tribesmen when I went up north to domesticate one of my creations. I'd really like to exact revenge on this beastie! Do you have any tips that might help me clobber this guy? Thanks.

By the way, I looked at your profile and saw that you live in Brisbane. So do I. I'm at Red Hill. Where abouts are you?
