I had Spore on my old PC, is there a way to transfer it over to my new one?

★★★★ Novice

First of all, I had the game on disk, I've had it since 2008. I stopped playing the game in 2015 because I upgraded my PC and my old Windows XP PC I had with Spore on it was tucked away into storage, I know it's been a long time since then, but I'm ready to play it again and was wondering if there was any way to transfer the game from my old PC to my new one with all the additional DLC/content included (creepy and cute, galactic adventures). I'd really hate to have to start from scratch with a new account with no creations or expansion packs. I was told to contact Origin Support and I hope this is the right place, I also have the serial keys for both Spore and Galactic Adventures. Thanks!

Hello @HeyItzMatty  I'm making it short.

 

Surely you can transfier Spore on newer  PC.
Install the game, if you did not to register it over Origin, you should be done by a game advisor.

Spore is an older game and it must be added to your account.

You need to backup these folders and files so you can restore them.

 

  • The big spore folder directory > AppData \ Roaming \ SPORE
  • Documents > My Spore Creations

Don’t forget The game must first launch before restoring your data

Thank you very much for the response. I will try that.

Can I use my new Origin account to register it or do I have to use the one I'm currently on that I used ages ago for Spore? Thanks again

You must to use your old account where Spore was registered. The game is linked to an account and can not be transferred to new accounts
