I have a nugget of info here.
At first when I tried to log in (first attempt on first boot of the game) I got "Login Failed - The code for this installation is invalid and cannot be used to link this product to your account.", BUT when I clicked the ok button and tried again, I got the other message straight after: "You do not have the proper Spore.com privileges to use this product's online features."

Same here - and every time I restart spore to log in


I'd like to point out that -inspite- of this problem, I'm really, really, really loving spore so far :) Up to the creature stage

Edit: And I PM'ed my details to MaxisPuzzle

Since this seems to be the thread Maxis people read, I'm asking two questions:

1. Is this related to the Mac "cannot connect to licensing server" problem?

2. If so, one user said in this thread: http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=14009.0 that reformatting helps. Do you have any idea what could cause that?

Hey, everyone.

Thanks to those of you who PM'd me: concrete data points are very helpful. (I can't seem to PM from my account, so sorry for not responding.)

And no need to apologize for being suspicious of me: I would've said the same thing, but I completely forgot about it when I posted.  :)

Thanks for the info.  You need to have made ten posts on the forum before messaging is allowed IIRC.
