Am i reduced to taking spore back and asking for refund or will i actually get to watch the intro, let alone play the damn thing???? I got it o work by reintsalling it and NOT downloading the patch.

Welcome to Reddit,

Any suggestions are welcome, thanks! Update: I uninstalled Spore and Galactic Adventures, moved the Preference files, and reinstalled without downloading any updates or patches. That seems to have worked. I have the same problem.

System Requirements

They must have some developers working with mac that can help. Splash screen, then nothing, no error messages. Close the file and restart the game. It should work now. Only took me six months to figure out how to find the config file…. Launch Spore again and keep your fingers crossed.



I am running Spore 4. I tried to update to 5. I will attempt to install the trial version and if that works, may have to re-purchase a new license. Dec 22, PM. Aug 1, AM in response to alto In response to alto I experienced the exact same problem as you all described which was very frustating since my 8 year old really wanted to play this. It opened and then vanished! My mac is an old Pro from mid-late on which I updated first to snow leopard and then to mountain lion.

I got Spore finally to work by help of the instructions I googled. In short you have to drag the installed program to the bin. Then you need to find the Spore preferences folder and also drag this to the bin. Then empty the bin. Restart and follow the following instructions that I copy in here. Good luck! Also delete Spore's preferences folder which is hard to find in the new OS.

Reply Helpful Thread reply - more options Link to this Post. Fair enough, admittedly not hugely practical, but it sounds like this particular Mac is more than Spore needs.

So far, Mac has gone smoothly when it comes to gaming. Spore runs exceptionally well. I just can't get GA to work, since the Exception raised thing is always there and choosing either of them turns of the game. I need help from people that use Mac.
