Title: Spore GA Registration Workaround
Post by: Petey on November 03, 2013, 01:11:14 pm
Hello,

I recently bought the Spore Ultimate Digital Collection from Amazon.com and found that I can't register it to my account (https://help.ea.com/uk/article/spore-login-issue-for-new-origin-customers), and customer support was unhelpful in fixing the problem. No problem, only thing I'm missing is auto-downloading from the Sporepedia, and I can manually get stuff I want by dragging and dropping.

To my dismay, I discovered this workaround doesn't work for user-created adventures. I can drag and drop the adventures, but all the creatures and other assets have to be downloaded from the Sporepedia, which I can't do since my game won't register.

Does anyone know a workaround for this or am I stuck until EA fixes Origin (if they ever do)?

Hi Petey,welcome to the forums!

I don't have a workaround solution,but it's likely your issue will be resolved by EA fixing Origin so accounts can be registered.

EA fixing Origin?  So... never?

Good Luck, Petey.

As I recall, Spore registration in general's been rather sketchy since release, hasn't improved much over time either way.
I never could register my copies either, so good luck dude.

Oh well. Thanks, guys. Hopefully EA will eventually fix registration.

I believe that this is happening. That's cool
