How do you start the game once installed? I didn't get an option to create a desktop icon. Do i have to go into Program Files every time?



Vista? Me neither

Look into Spore dir, then in a folder under bin - I added the .exe to my Steam for future use, or just make a desktop shortcut

Now I can't login :(



Last night? Me neither. Think the logon servers were down - I got on once, but was dumped shortly after



Yeah Vista. I did end up making my own shortcut.

I tried it the morning after and logged in fine :P

Made a friendly singing dancing race...takes so long :/

Finished tribal stupidly fast, got to Civilsation, converted most of the other cities, then it crashed :<

Installing on friends pc atm D: (It either takes a while to install, or it's frozen)

(as cool as customisable buildings and vehicles are, it pisses me off spending time making them. Default stuff would be nice)



Awesome, I think it's frozen

You do know you can choose from all the pre-made Maxis stuff and the huge amounts of user-made online stuff, yeah?

oh, and it doesnt like ALT-Tab'ing. big sad face.



I'm alt-tabbing out of this game every few mins, much smoother than most games. This is with all the setting on maximum at 22" native res.

I guess im just 1337.



Ditto, on 40" Bravia, with secondary 19" Hyundai -- max settings also.
There's sometimes a slight delay bringing it back up, but apart from that no problems with resuming from alt-tab.
Actually, its kinda cool... after alt-tabbing away from the game, the music slowly fades out; I thought that was quite cute.

One problem I did have was the game crashing at the end of last nights session (only picked it up yesterday arvo) -- right at the end of actually quitting, before going back to the desktop, the app just crashed.
Hopefully everything is saved and all ok; guess I'll find out tonight.

Oh and also, my username is AlphaToOmega.

I think I did actually create an "Ashlar" (or Ashlaar) with the creature creator, that I used for all of 30 minutes. Piece of crap EA system wouldn't allow me to validate the account off the old email, and said it was sending me a new one... but didn't. =/

Oh well, new username for me. :p

Meh, just run the game in maximised windowed mode for easy alt-tabbing. sure you end up with the titlebar at the top, but that's a small price to pay.

Note: Just in case you're wondering, while you get some meaningless award for collecting all the parts in the cell stage, there is no equivalent such bonus in the creature phase (unless there's some way of getting x-vore mouths as a y-vore creature). You do, however, get a meaningless award for getting a creature with 4 (or more) level 5 stats.

Hours wasted = too fucking many. :-( I think I'll wait for the "fun" patch before bothering with the space stage again -- I tried it on easy and ended up with my homeworld getting attacked *every single time* I zoom out to the galaxy view. Go to the planet, kill the ships, zoom out to do something else and without even moving I'm under attack again. Go back, kill them all, they declare peace... zoom out and *bam*. I must have done this a dozen times or more before deciding to start again.

As someone who was very much looking forward to it, I have to say: this game fucking sucks.

There's a heap of them, there's one for flying X meters in one go, killing one of those 1000hp monsters, having a party of all different creatures, eating 50 different creatures etc etc

im starting to segway into that... every 5 minutes i have to go defend my home from 20 overpowered bullshit ships. ive lost 2 colonies already with fuckall chance of getting them back.

i was wondering if i was playing on hard mode, but it just seems to be the way. i'd like to explore the galaxy but i cant seem to leave my system without getting attacked by some religious wanker demanding a ridiculous tithe for no reason.

I think I've kind of figured out the 'I Win' button in Space stage. Just power your way to get the minibomb, go make planetfall on an enemy planet, have the local defence chase you around a bit until you get a bit of space on them, then go minibomb the crap out of the colony.

Colony surrenders heaps fast, rinse and repeat.

Although it's starting to really farking annoy me that you can get attacked by enemy ships all the way down to a planet, but your ship can't do dick all to defend itself.
