spore so far [Sep. 9th, 2008|06:55 pm]
So far:

- Requires that multi-gpu mode is disabled (huh?)
- Takes 5-6 minutes from double clicking the icon to any indication the game is running at all, and then its a blank screen that it sits at for another 2 minutes. I know loading screens are annoying, but even that would be better than wondering if my double click was taking at all...

- Does not accept numbers in your password (huh?)

From all the mixed reviews about performance and DRM problems, I stopped myself from getting it just yet. But you should try Spore Creatures maybe - my b/f did it and it's pretty neat, though just one part of the Spore game universe.

I didn't know about the DRM "problems" (which I assume are the limited number of activations more than anything else-- the 10 day recall thing seems to have been removed) until the slashdot article today, sigh.

I hope they make it better and re-release it. I've been looking forward to this game hardcore.

Wondering how much of the DRM etc they ripped out of the Mac version (which is just the Windows version running under a hacked up Wine). I'm seeing none of these problems on a somewhat low-powered hackintosh with a NVIDIA 6200 (and I've almost finished the space phase).

Oh, and my password has a number.

Pretty sure most of my problems aren't DRM-- just surprise that a state of the art 3d game would reject dual GPUs (with current drivers). Not sure why it wouldn't let me put a number in my password, but I tried several times with the number, than gave up.
