You should see something like this in the mail:

SPORE CREATURE CREATOR "ealink:-eadcommand:?cmd=dm_add_download_job&contentId=..............."

The "ealink:-eadcommand:?cmd=dm_add_download_job&contentId=.............." is the link you need to copy to your browser, be sure your EADM is running.

Edit:

It seems that you will also get a download link if you click on the link about having any further questions about your order.

What's the status of your order then?

Do you see this behind your order after clicking on the 'further questions link':

" (green button) Download now with EA Download Manager "

That's the one you need. If not, I don't know it anymore either.

I have it unpacked and installed, but it wasn't easy.

First i had to restart my pc to get it unpacked through the download manager

then i had to manually find the file, because the download manager wouldnt launch the install

I finally got the install working and now i can play

but it still only makes the folders, no desktop shortcuts whatsoever.

PS: I previously had the trial installed. Uninstall it!. The ea download manager crap launched the trial in stead of extracting or installing the full version.


I made 1 simple creature, but really. I'm to tired to get inspired. Tomorrow/Today it's creature editor day. Hope this **** works out for all of you. Goodnight.
Riligious people believe god created man, I believe man created god.
And after the Spore release you can be god ^^

hehe and just a while ago i was defending maxis a bit, well they should be defended, the whole order thing is EA though,

Cosmosis, the "downloadable" isnt your order state, the order state is the step befor that

the one with your order history where you see the status.. i'm betting you also have "bestelling ingediend" there, and no status changes since forever...



I have a few theories but i'm not gonna speculate too much late at night, I guess i'll just find out tomorrow but i cant get myself to go to sleep yet... i need to get over this setback first :P

Am i the only one using a Mac ?

Really desperate at the moment  :'(

Is there really no way for me to get the Spore CC
without using a EA Download Manager for PC ?

I purchased it, i have the Link for the Download... and now ?

I've got news.

EA Helpdesk told me that their server that are providing the store element and handling the transactions have technical difficulties. When I asked if it would still be solved today the guy said they had no time frame for this but the tech staff is working on it and tries to fix these problems with non appearing games ASAP. I hope it's soon.

Anyone still having problems with this? 

I just pre-ordered the downloadable version today, and I'm not seeing any download link.  I'm not sure if this is supposed to take a while or not, but the order confirmation e-mail I recieved does not really give me any information on how long it may take for the order to process.
