Re: Can't register account in game

★★★★★ Guide

As long as the game is listed in the Origin My Game Library, the game is considered to be registered to the account, this is called an entitlement.

 

I don’t believe the Spore server specifically needs the actual key but I will check into that. As far as I can tell, it just checks for the entitlement, not a key.

 

I did find a workaround to register a Spore persona, but it’s a little convoluted to do. I’m not 100% sure if it will let you upload creations, since it creates the persona but does not actually grant an entitlement (and entitlements are checked when uploading creations), but all other online functionality should work. Will post more details soon.

@Kyle_NecrowolfWell, as long as I can download creations this shouldn't be an issue

@Kyle_Necrowolf If that registration form (wether in game or not) performs a check on entitlement, then it would be logical it's checked with some server from Origin. But it would be a lot easier if the Spore registration server has the original key algotrithm to run the check by, because of less dependacy on other servers. Oh well. What would I know :-)

Don't mind sharing that complicated way of registering a Spore persona you mentioned, I'm quite tech savvy and happy to help. This issue is driving me nuts for quite some time now, can't stand it *lol*

 

@voidhomu don't know, got any references on that?

@TheEccentric123 there's no workarround -yet-. This issue is going on for quite some time now, and alot of people have been looking in to it. Most of the time without any success though. You should search the web for any tips & tricks resolving this issue, in case you hadn't done that yet.
