Gaah, stupid game!
« on: February 03, 2010, 05:00:35 pm »
Ok, I'm finally trying to register spore, I go to create an EA accout, put in email, password and verify it, put in a spore user name, yadda yadda yadda. When I hit the yellow arrow, it says
THE INSTALL CODE USED TO INSTALL THE GAME CANNOT BE VERIFIEDOr something to that effect.

Whadda I do?
Edit: When I log in, it says that my verification code yadda yadda same as above, If I try to long in again, it changes it's story to "you don't have the proper spore.com privaleges to use the online features of this game". I look at EA's Spore help section, they all say the same thing; that this happens when trying to register the game twice, When I ain't even registered it once....god, this game is retarded sometimes. EA help is useless, of course, couldn't get decent assistance from people who made the game, and...grah, what's the bother.

Not having the proper privaleges sounds like you're banned. Have you tried making a post on the forums since you got this message?

I've never made a post at all to begin with.

That doesn't mean you can't be banned from the online side of Spore.

Why would a person who's visited Spore.com about 3 times be banned? I haven't visited the forum at all.

I've never been to the forums either... but I still don't have the full version of Spore. Just the full Creature Creator.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

You may have uploaded a penis-monster, you might have spammed/harassed other users, you might have offended somebody who reported you and the admin/moderators found in their favour. So, can you access the spore forums or not? .

Never uploaded, and never interacted with others on the Spore forums. So, none of those are possible. Sorry.

If you had a hiccup whilst trying to register, it could have completed the registration process but simply not advanced the on-screen window. I had that once, when it registered a serial but the screen behaved as if my connection had hung. I ended up spending a while trying to register, only to find it had already been completed. Check your mails for a confirmation, just in case.

Otherwise, it might just be that someone using a keygen decided to do a douchey thing and register it as their very own, and you happened to draw the short straw when you bought your copy. I'm certain there is a way you can get them to reset the code under your name, just keep hammering at their tech support, I guess.
