I have resolved this issue! I made a crazy gambit and decided to install the Creepy & Cute parts pack, and then Galactic Adventures.
Running spore with Galactic Adventures, through whatever reason, fixed the problem!
So.. I've seen plenty of topics all over the place, (not just here and such) about this error, but they never seem to have the same consensus of how to fix this nauseating error...
you see, I had Spore, It's expansions, and even DI installed on an external hard drive.. But earlier in 2016, the drive failed and I lost everything, including Spore.
Now, I have tried to reinstall the games, but.. Spore said it was already installed, so I had to 'uninstall' them.. When I had the (Frankly ugly) new version of Origin reinstall the first base game, Spore, it went fine, but.. when I try to start the game,
It gives me the infamous R6025 Pure Virtual Function Call error. I've tried reinstalling, no dice. I've moved both my game0 and game0.old folders away from Spore's appdata folder, nada. nothing seems to be working for a game that worked JUST FINE beforehand.
if it helps, I have Windows 8.1. Can anyone please help me fix this very irritating issue?
