Or ancients.

Or better yet, the Ancients and the Shivans sign a treaty to purge the galaxy of sex creatures before turning on each other.

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

Has anyone else had this problem.  When I tried to start the game I get this Error message "Could not create the Graphics Device. Diorect X is unavailable. [1002]"
This make no sense because when I got this error I went and downloaded the most recent version of Direct X but I still get the mesage.  Help, please.

-Open DirectX diagnostics utility (Windows -> Run -> dxdiag) and test the Direct3D rendering.

-If they don't work, re-install your graphics card driver; if the problem with Spore persists, update your graphics card driver

-if the dxdiag tests work, update the graphics card driver, that's the most likely culprit for a problem like this.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Alternatively you could get the latest DirectX release from the Windows website. If you just reformatted your com then it won't have directX.

They were over at MATY trying to figure out how the creature is stored in the png file.

Well, I spent an entire afternoon updating my graphics drivers, and it still doesn't work.

I'm afraid i'm running the demo old chap. I would imagine it's nearly identical apart from the lack of some "high-ed/veggie" parts.

I think the main shivan creator dude earlier in this thread buoght the complete CC. Might be worth asking him or checking MAxis forums :)
What OS/specs are you packing? Have you tried running compatibility mode at all, also how far does it get before it ceases function? :confused:
