Hi, I found that link and tried to do it, but I couldn't find SPORE in my applications folder (or anywhere else), so couldn't continue

Have you installed the game via Origin?

 

On my machine, the file to copy is located here:

 

Origin Games\Spore\Data\Locale\en-us\NameGeneration.package

 

...and this is to be copied to the following location if it is missing from there:

 

Origin Games\Spore\Data\Locale\en-gb

Yeah, I installed it from origin, and open up origin to play it.

 

I am using a mac. Sorry, I couldn't find the:

 

Origin Games\Spore\Data\Locale\en-us\NameGeneration.package

 

I looked via magnifying glass, library --> application support --> origin, and by opening origin package contents.
