Help - I can't get online on Spore (2020)

★★ Newbie

I've had Spore on origin for a number of years but hadn't played it for a while because my laptop couldn't run it (yes its that crap) I recently bought a gaming computer and having downloaded origin and Spore's main game and both expansions I cannot seem to get online. Whenever I log in or try to make a Spore account it just comes up with "An unknown error occurred during registration, please try again. After trying for two hours I still have no result, If anybody has a fix for this please leave step by step instructions, Thanks

Here you go. This will get you going.

 

If you purchased Spore on other services, and cannot register in-game, or simply need to download the game from Origin, follow these instructions.

 

  1. Go to https://ea.com/ and log with your EA/Origin Account. email and password
  2. Go to https://myaccount.ea.com/cp-ui/redemption/index, you have to be logged on EA.com for this page to load correctly.
  3. Redeem your codes (Spore, Galactic Adventures, Creepy & Cute Parts Pack) codes from non-Origin locations
  4. IMPORTANT! For base game, make sure to redeem actual game and not the Spore Community Access.
  5. Run the game.
  6. Choose "Register" and log in with your EA Account email and password and pick your Spore persona

You can also redeem the codes from CD/DVD, Steam or GOG directly in Origin if you have it installed and if they haven't been attached to an account already.

 

If you get the message that your code has already been used, contact EA Support at https://help.ea.com and have your serial code ready to give to the game advisor. They will be able to help you out.

The issue with this response is that I own the game on Origin anyway, yet still I can't get online, thanks for the advice though

You need to get the serial keys (product codes). Either get them from the disc directly or check your emails if you downloaded the game and maybe you can still get them from origin.
Good luck!
