Spore suddenly corrupted?
« on: December 28, 2008, 03:34:32 pm »
Maybe not corrupted but something's wrong.  I haven't installed the last patch (it won't work but I'm not concerned) and I don't have any mods, but suddenly, just as I'm heavilly using Spore again, the game is acting oddly. 

First, my creations have blurry pictures on Sporepedia.  Just today I've found that my trick of raising all the graphics levels to max before saving a creation suddenly won't work.  The pictures of my creations look WORSE than they do at base levels.

Second, the copyright notice won't go away from the bottom of the screen.  Especially during the actual game this is upsetting because the graphic disables any buttons it appears over, thus making the game very hard to play.

Does anyone know why this is happening or what I should do?  I have no plans on reinstalling the game unless absolutely necessary.

hmm, are there any other programs that were working fine and suddendly aren't working right?

You probably should run defrag and antivirus/spyware scan just to be sure.

Are you alt-tabbing?

The game seems to be fine now but I don't know what I did right or wrong.  I'll let you all know if it acts up again.
