Spore: Left Click isn't working on start up

★★★★★ Newbie

Ok so I recently bought Spore on Origins for my Mac and started it up, when I got to the start up screen with the Galaxy and the little planets you can choose from, I tried clicking on a planet to play on but it doesn't do anything, it doesn't even show a preview of the planet. The only thing I can do is spin the galaxy around and press esc but even then I can't log out of the game because the left click doesn't work, I really wanted to play this game but all I did was waste 20 dollars...if anyone knows a solution please tell me.

Now I found out that the functions all still DO work, but the click-options, for example to submit, is not located ON the box, but right under it. As if my computer/the game is not calibrated.. I do not yet have a solution. Does this occur often on mac computers with this game?


No does not happen often and normally it works perfectly. Try and using Return at same time and switch to window mode. Then go under Settings in Spore and change the screen size

@Freggi-Liz Hi,

I have a similar problem. I have a Macbook pro, running Sierra. I just downloaded Spore via Origin. So far, the game launches without any problems, but when it shows the start-up screen, my left-mouse-click doesn't work, and neither does my keyboard. I've jumped into the sticky notes you have send, but I cannot seem to find the solution. Do you perhaps know which specific link on your list could be the solution to this problem?

I have found a solution, it is that you press command for Mac and enter to make the screen smaller for spore and it will then allow you to type and click like normal . P.s. Im hurt that my favorite game can’t be played normally.
