CC no longer working
« on: June 17, 2008, 05:18:22 am »
So I get up this morning to fire up my trial CC hoping that the database will be unlocked so I can upload my works. I fire up the game, it gets to the ESRB screen...then suddenly closes itself and drops me back to the desktop. No error message, no crash message, no nothing, just pops back to the desktop and closes. It does this every single time. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling it and to no avail.

Anyone else get this? Anyone have any idea on how to fix it?

I get it too, first of all I recommend uninstalling the leak trial and installing the official one available on their site. (it's 205MB big compared to the 191MB of the leaked version, must mean something).

Then, if it steel keeps closing on start up, close EA DM and run it.

When i woke up this morning and checked my computer EA download manger updated, after the update the trial CC would not work, when i uninstalled the download manager i noticed in my add/remove programs there was two download managers in there but i just uninstalled them both.

Edit, it works now

Mine works with the new update, I just have to close EADM before launching the program.

DD: Are there any problems integrating your old creatures into the new CC? ie. do you still retain "creator" status with them?

I'm just wondering if I should take any steps or precautions, or if I can simply uninstall the old and then install the new one, without doing anything else to retain ownership of my babies :)

Oh and very important!
If it is just as easy as that, will it work the same way when I download the FULL CC? Will ownership be retained without issues?

I'm thinking of just holding off with this whole trial malarky until the full CC comes out...

And to those of you who say you have it, where can you get it? (legally)

If you mean for those who say they have the full version, they bought it from direct2drive, instead of EA.

maybe it's not only a trial leak issue but also happening on some OS configurations ?
