A friend of mine just bought a physical copy of Spore and wants to patch it. Unfortunately Origin will not detect the game and we can't figure out why, and neither can Google. Any thoughts? We've tried refreshing the list and changing installation directories.

Origin is not going to detect Spore if it was not bought from Origin.

To patch Spore, simply launch Spore, log in, and if you have not already patched, a window will pop up asking if you want to install the lastest patch. Hit yes and let it patch. Follow any steps that an installer window might say to do if one pops up. Sometimes you have to patch 2-3 times until you have the latest patch.

That's just it, Spore won't patch at all. We don't know what to do.

Is your friend able to connect to the Spore servers?

You HAVE to SIGN IN on Spore while in-game in order to patch.

If you are signed in then you probably already have the latest patch.
