Default SPORE problems... please help...

Ok, I installed it.

But when I went in to play, it said "It has encountered a problem and has to close, sorry for this inconvenience." Sooo, I cannot play it.

Can ANYONE help me??

Hrmmm, not sure.

First of fI guess is what sort of system are you running it on and what, if any, other programs are you running? I know I had problems with the creature creator when I had certain other programs running.

Firefox.

Gimme a sec, I'll try and close out of FF while doing it.

I've got Win98. My brother's works fine on his... :/

Nope. It didn't work... T___T

I am sad.

Your brother's works fine on his Win98? System requirements say Win XP (I imagine Win 2K would also work). Win98 is very different... if you have a system running Win98, the overall hardware might be incompatible with the game. You need 768 megs RAM, and a 128 MB video card supporting Pixel Shader 2 - such as an Nvidia 5000-series or newer.

Any $400 budget computer sold today would run it, but even a $3000 behemoth from 2002 or earlier wouldn't, without hardware upgrades.

Press Start, Run, Dxdiag.

Give us Processor, Memory and Direct X version from the first page, then click on the Display tab.
From that give us the name of the graphics card, the memory and driver date.
That should be enough to check your system.
