==========Tips ==========
If you run a dual-monitor setup, have SCC (SPORE Creature Creator) open on one monitor and Sporepedia open on the other monitor. Click and drag the image of a creature from Sporepedia into SCC while your in Build Mode, Paint Mode or in the Sporepedia page within SCC.
The new creature will instantly appear and you can do whatever you want with it.

More comming soon!
Watch this space!


==========Help ==========
Q)
How do I get SPORE Creature Creator?
A)
Easy, just go to the EA New Zealand website: http://www.ea.co.nz/en-nz/
Direct SPORE Creature Creator link: http://eastore.ea.com/store/eaapac/en_NZ/DisplayProductDetailsPage/ProductID.96890600
You see, for some reason the EA Australia site doesn't let you purchase SPORE yet. Although I think it will be updated very soon.

Q)
When I start SPORE I get an error which says a required security module could not be activated. WTF?
A)
If you are using Process Explorer, it is being detected by the SPORE copy-protection as a threat and is stopping the program from running.
You can disable Process Explorer and reboot and this should fix the problem.

If you use Process Explorer a lot and don't want to reboot every time you want to play SPORE then download this program which hides the Process Explorer driver from the SPORE copy-protection software.
http://www.chase.net.au/HidePE100.zip
Head over to this thread and have a read: http://forum.sysinternals.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=11086

Here are the instructions:
1) Extract the files to "C:/utils"
2) Create a new shortcut on your desktop
3) Set the target location to "c:\util\HidePE100 -m" (no quotation marks)
4) Make sure Process Explorer is not running and then start the shortcut.
5) Open SPORE and sculpt the 1's and 0's as if they were clay.

Nice creatures!
You've done heaps.

Ickis, Krumm, and Oblina from AAAHH! REAL MONSTERS are a good choice for subjects to model.

I'm still learning and I'm having trouble getting legs to work properly on a creature like a cow or horse.

Any tips?
I'll make a SPORE Tips section up there if you can give us some info :)

One of the coolest things for me is the integration of Sporepedia with the SCC (SPORE Creature Creator).
I run a dual-monitor setup and I've got SCC running on one monitor and the Sporepedia open on the other monitor.
So when I see a creature I'm interested in and want to check it out further I just click and drag the PNG image of the creature over to SCC and it instantly appears on my screen.
I can then take it for a test driver or change the colors or even modify the physical properties of the creature and use it to make another one.

This is amazing!
To my knowledge no other game has made the method of importing new content into the game so simple and easy.
Is SPORE breaking new ground here?

How does the PNG image file contain all the creature data?
I'm guessing PNG files allow a seperate block of data to be stored within the file.

Well, it's not really a game...
Yet...
You see, this SCC (SPORE Creature Creator) is just a small piece of the larger game which is called SPORE.
In the SCC you get to sculpt creatures using body parts and by modifying the size and shape of limbs and the torso.
In the first week over a million different creatures were uploaded to Sporepedia.
All created by players!

Check out this link:
http://www.spore.com/sporepedia

The title 'creature creator' says it all.
There are no set objectives, no time limits, no scores, no powerups, no respawns...
You use your imagination to design creatures that you would snuggle up with in bed or creatures that you check for under your bed before you can sleep.

This threads isn't just about the SPORE nicknames.
It will contains tips and handy info and troubleshooting advice.
A bit of everything :)

I read an article on the SPORE PNG files and it explained a lot.
http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/06/16/how-is-spore-hiding.html
Basically they hide data in the "empty" sections of the image.

This is a live video stream of the guys in Australia playing Spore.

It seems that a couple of people in France and Australia have Spore.
Apparently a retailer gave it to these guys early.

Just speaking with EB, and they reckon its out tomorrow

Reckon


Apparently it has no offical specified release date, so they will be selling it as soon as stock comes in


EDIT:

Liars!! Well, nearly >.>

Went into GAME, and they have it in stock, but were emailed by EA this morning saying not too put in on the shelves until tomorrow. Go for a wander down to EB, and dont get any answers really, except that they were expecting Spore on the weekend ready for monday and it didnt come

What it smells like to me, is that its meant to be on sale today, but because EB didnt get their shipment, EA told everyone else to hold on and wait

Speaking with the guys at GAME, their a little annoyed - Seems their store (Woden) will be shut for the first half day of tomorrow for stocktake, and will lose a bit to EB because of this





Oh yeah - I didnt even notice this until the guy at EB pointed this out:

If buying from EB - Take in the cover from the Creator Creator you got from The Daily Telegraph - $15 discount

I wonder if this is the reason for the mess today?

Put my pre-order down today to get a Galactic edition at GAME. They said it will definitely be out Tuesday. He seemed so sure of it, i'm assuming they have stock in but can't sell it, as is usually the case.
