I managed to install Spore once. All was well, untill a couple o'days ago when Spore got a fatal crash and coulsn't get started again (Kept getting "Spore has stopped working" message). I tried re-installing, but everytime I try, the installation stalls and can't go further.
I'm on Vista, installing as an administrator.
I've managed to install Spore on the default partition, but it still does not start. Vista installed an update just moments before the problem started.
I've noticed some serious bugs with my game after installing the patch. Planets wont terraform correctly (Strange square like patterns occur) and even some change into one hug flat surface (I'm nickname them "Buglliard Balls" )
I'm not alone in this one, the GamingSteve forum is mentioning disappearing weapons, no Sporepedia downloads/implementation (Only Maxis made objects). Some cant even start Spore afterward.
