I am not sure what could be causing freezes using this fix...
Make sure you have Spore updated to 1.5.0 or higher. Get back to me on this so I can fix it if it's on my side.

Thank you SO much for this thread! After so much head scratching and clicking colorful buttons to get Spore to look good again, your fix finally worked! The game looks amazing, just like I remember back in the good old days, and I haven't run into any problems. Thank you again!!!

K2017,

You sir, are my HERO!! The fix worked for me, without having to rollback drivers stupidly far Having shiny textures again makes spore worth playing again. May be bad news for my exams, but that doesn't matter.

Thanks, oh almighty K2017

I'm absolutely happy to know that some people cared for this kind of problem at this time especially you K2017, you did an amazing help for some of us thank you so much .

Back then if i actually started this or revived this problem to be fixed from that time of April 29, 2014 from my post ( http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/30/79549.page ).

So i expected my post to have a reply in a week, or month or even a year if anybody still cares. But then much to my surprise some people like Superraptor and MobsterMania/HRmatthew replied in just hours with good results and it worked for them. But not so much for some other aspects like bumpmaps and other effects. My solution was just a fix for the shine/glow.

Anyway your fix worked again thank you

My return to Spore!!!(April 28,2014)

I am currently working on modding the game to permanently fix multiple graphical issues. If you have any suggestions on what needs to be fixed, please post them here! I guess I'm this forum's resident modder now...

I won't have to do a complete reinstall of my game if I end up uninstalling this mod, will I?

Just make sure you have copies of your Config files.

Holy [REDACTED], everything is so shiny! Thanks.

The requirements for uninstalling this mod are now officially a non-issue

If it's modified config files, then yes.

Well here's my fix (https://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/81170.page). If you based yours off mine then it would be nice if you gave credit, if that is a fair request to make.

I think what this person did was use config files from the Trial version of creature creator.

To make this clear, this is not based off of your fix Rob. It is based off of my own research as I looked into the problem. As in I used mostly trial and error within my own game. Also, this config file is a modded version of the one from the full game, not the trial.

edit- Ok, I never read your original thread, and I see where you are coming from. I give you credit for the lighting and the shininess (Even though there are many more that deserve credit as well.). I guess what I did was enable bumpmaps and some other stuff, so there.
