Spore: General / Patches: fix or fail
« on: November 19, 2008, 08:06:06 am »
So people, there have been lots of anti-patch topics after every patch, so to try and clear up the confusion caused by patch-haters posting more to voice their hatred than patch-lovers, so here's a poll to let those that want to find out whether it is worth getting them, find out.

If that makes sense.

Just answer the poll, let everyody know if TEH PATCH BROKENED YOUR GAME!!1!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!!...

...or not, as the case may be.

Spore: General / The Crash Diagnostic Topic
« on: November 14, 2008, 08:26:54 am »
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!

DO NOT MAKE THIS INTO AN "AAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!1!!!!1!!!!!!!!!! TEH PATCH BROKED MEH GAME! FIX IT NOWZ MAXIS OR DIEEE!" THREAD.

Please post crash problems that are bothering you but you can't think of an explanation for. If you have managed to fix a crash problem, please post it here too.

Anywayz.

I'll start.

I have a windows Vista computer (can't remember which version at the moment, or what the specs are). I also have vanilla Spore (no patches or expasions).

Info about about my play habits:

I play it for an hour or two, then go do something else (eat, sleep, take a dump). I don't have many problems, unless I play it after my dad has been, although sometimes I do get a few problems. I play it on all Medium graphics.

I sometimes play differently however:

Play for a hour or two. Eat. Play for an hour...or three...(start lag here)...or four...(forget to save,serious lag,crash)

I personally think that it just gets too much for the computer to handle and it just gives up. Cant say I blame it, poor thing. So I shut down and leave it for a while.

Is it just burnout, or do other people experience random crashes without huge amounts of play time?

Sorry in advance if this dissapoints you, but you can't play it as an epic. Ever. Or at least until someone makes a mod/hacks the game to make it possible.

Now, on the spore site (USA version, which I prefer, even though I "should" use the UK one) the October 14th Sporeday update is a "how to make a sporecast ('cast)" video. As well as that, there is a graph/chart thing that shows you the neded stats for different NPC creatures, handy if you want to make a broad-spectrum 'cast.

This link takes you to the page with the data:

Sorry I can't get it into the post. I haven't worked out how to add tables yet.
