Reading the Sporums, I came across this post…In it, MaxoidKane states the following:
Hi Spore Players,
We have been listening to the reports of issues on this board and to Customer Support and we will be putting out another patch very, very soon. The patch is of course free and should fix the major issues some players are experiencing. We will release it as soon as it’s been certified by testing. I know that you’ve waiting and we really appreciate your patience. It’s going to be out very soon as soon as it’s been certified.
Thanks again for your patience.
This patch will be mainly focused on fixing the critical bugs some users are seeing. We’ll post a full list of fixes when the patch is released.
As Lucy said in this thread, http://forum.spore.com/jforum/posts/list/2897.page we will be releasing the ability to add multiple Screen Names to a Spore Online Account on our website very soon but that new feature will be released outside of this patch once it’s fully tested.
We will continue to look at issues people are seeing and are trying to respond as fast as we can.
Hopefully this patch will allow those who aren’t able to play to do so (and not cause more problems). Let’s just keep the fingers crossed!
