Hello, I tried the fix, changin 0 to 1, in my case, though, it just did not make any difference. I get the starting window, then it quietly disappear, and the game crashes on start, every time
This worked perfectly to fix the issue with the black screen. Thank you so much for posting this! It was extremely helpful.
If changing the config file doesnt' work, I've found that a quick Command + Tab to the finder through your open apps and then back to Spore will get the graphics showing again. Dumb, but a quick work around.
