Okay, I bought Spore during the sale, 15 dollars for the whole package.
At first I had trouble validating everything, but I fixed that by turning my EA account into an Origin account and using my CD Keys to get the games on Origin. Then I realized I still needed to validate via E-mail and did that. So I'm validated.
Now when I try to Login, I get this error:
There was an error connecting to the Spore Servers. Your computer might be offline or your internet connection may be having problems. Check your connection or visit Spore.com
for additional assistance or server status."
I can say for sure that neither of those are the issue. My computer and internet connections are fine. As for server status, my friend can still login so I assume it's not the servers (FYI: his version of Spore is not the Steam version, if it matters.) If all possible I want to avoid using customer support. I've already fixed the validation issue anyway, just to be slapped with this one. Does anyone have a fix for this new issue?
