[Solution] Spore for Steam - Can't log in to servers

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Apprentice

This is how you REALLY connect to spore servers through steam: here are the instructions, download eadm AKA origin client, app, whatever you call it from the website, then go to your spore game and right click it, go up to cd key, and then it will bring up a box, hit copy to clipboard. next install origin client and log in, then hover over the origin tab on the top left, and hit redeem product code. keep in mind, even though it may have the play button on the origin client, it wont work, so you still have to launch it through steam. Finally go to the bottom left of the spore game and click register, DO NOT HIT LOG IN, hit register spore account, type in your info and then hit enter, and if you did it right, you should be logged in to your new account, and then thereforth you can use the log in button to log in. -Your welcome

OMG You are amazing......Thank you so much. This fix works 100%

 

But just to clarify for people.....

 

Type into Google "Origin client download" and then download and install.

 

Then go back to steam and right click on Spore to get CD key/keys.

 

Then log in to Origin and redeem these CD code/codes.

 

Then make spore account using your Origin login details.

 

I say keys and codes cause I had the original Spore + Galactic Adventures + Cute and Creepy so had to redeem 3 times.

 

P.S. I'm from the UK but must have registered to EA/Origin through the US site so when redeeming codes you might have to select English US rather than English UK.

 


 

Additional solution provided by @Elocara:

 

I managed to resolve my connectivity issue: when trying to redeem the Spore base game, the default English choice is the wrong one. Try the second English option.

 

I thought I'd add this info, in case someone else still has troubles logging on to the Spore server.

@cooldude2049 Hi,

 

If you already have a Spore account, what happens when you try to log in with it within the game?

 

Cheers,

Nils
