GA crashes on start

Unread post #1 by cla255 » Sat Jul 22, 2017 3:31 pm

Whenever i try to start GA, it instantly crashes and comes up with "Spore: Galactic Adventures has stopped working". I think the issue is a missing .package file for the game. I have tried reinstalling the game twice but it didn't work either time. Also I use a Windows 10 PC on origin for spore.

Go to C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming, and delete the Spore folder, it contains all your evolution data, so make sure to back that up if needed. Once deleted. Reinstall Spore again in this order: Spore > Spore Creepy and Cute (if you have it) > Spore Galactic Adventures > Patch 5.1 > Bot Parts Expansion Pack (if you have it)

On what platform do you have Spore installed, if you have it installed on disc, I heavily advise you to redeem your CD code in Steam or Origin, and then install Spore there.

It's possible to improve Spore's graphics using Reshade. I'm planning a V0.2 public release soon

I don't think it worked. I still get the same message when I start GA. I might have done it wrong though. I don't know.

I'm sorry, but again, backup your spore folder and delete it, and then reinstall Spore again in the aforementioned order. Do not install any mods after that! If it still crashes.... I'm clueless.

All mods must go to the Data folder for Spore Galactic Adventures. Not the entire .zip files, but the .package files inside, if there are .txt files, read them, as they might be tutorials. If your download is just a .package file, just place it into the Data folder for Spore GA.

Well. Didn't work, so I guess that I can't play anymore GA. That's okay though, even though it was one of my favourite games, I have a million other games to play.

When you reinstalled, did you Launch Core Spore once before installing any patches, DLCs, or mods?

Heh, I never do that when installing Spore, yet Spore runs just fine. Just a small detail.

Yeah, some need to, most don't...it's weird, but sometimes weird solutions work.

Oh, I can't start core spore at all no idea why, and GA worked just fine when i had to reinstall it without starting Core Spore before it didn't work.

Again, delete the Spore folder in %Appdata%/Roaming, whitelist it in any antivirus software. And then reinstall the game.

Try moving your registration keys over to another platform. IE: Origin.

Fully wipe your Spore folder too.

I had tried wiping my spore folder after i had done what you said. I had moved my 3 spore games over to origin from steam previously to mod spore, and i don't want to go through the crap i had to go through just to move them back to origin after trying them on steam and them still not working.

Okay this isn't working. I'm gonna try to contact EA, and if they can't fix it, nobody can.

Wrong - if they can't fix it, a Virtual Machine still might be able to.
