Spore: General / Re: Spore did work, but now it doesn't
« on: September 17, 2008, 07:23:58 am »
Ok I'm narrowing down the problem, I uninstalled it again this time using add/remove programs in the control panel and saving my game data and having that removed too. When  I started the game up it Worked! but it didn't have any of my data. So I put my saved data back where it was supposed to be and it didn't work. So I did the PIA thing and used trial and error. So far i've been able to put every file in except for the Game0 file in the spore file of the application data file. However, when I individually move my planet .spo to the game0 file spore still works, but I my saved planet isn't in the galaxy menu. So I can play spore now, but the problem is still a mystery and I fear that it will happen again unless I really figure out what's going on. Got any thoughts? Also I don't want take credit for this, this was given to me as a suggestion over at Spore Forums by Al B Bach.

Thanks for the advice I'll see if I can't move around some disk space

I totally understand about the auto-updates from windows, I did turn it off a while ago, because my computer would randomly restart when I was a away from the keyboard for a few minutes. However, Windows is completely updated including Service Pack 3 which I did after spore stopped working. The only thing that I remember updating was itunes to from 7 to 8. Could that be the culprit? Thanks.

Well, I tried disabling all unneeded services and uninstalling Spore running CheckDisk and reinstalling it, and neither of them work, I still get the exact same problem

It would seem that no matter what I do including reinstalling the game, I get the exact same problem each time I attempt to start the it.

I downloaded (legally through EA) spore and it worked beautifully for a few days. Suddenly when ever I try to start it, the screen goes black as if it is about to start then I get some kind of error message, stating that "Spore has to be shut down."I've restarted my computer and reinstalled spore. I've updated my video, chipset, and sound drivers. I have tried to run Spore in safe mode. I have changed the credential in which to run spore. And I have turned off all of my background programs that are unneeded. I am all out of ideas. I am using windows XP to play spore. Why would spore work than all of a sudden not? any help on this would be great! Thanks
