How to create more than one spore account

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So you got the nifty Spore CC and your family members want to play to. Alas EA is lame and won't bring up the registration window to allow them to create Screen names. Here's what you do:

Currently there is no option to create a new spore account using the SPORE Creature Creator. In order to create a new account, you must remove the login file so that the Creature Creator will need to create a new one. To do this:

Double click on My Computer.
Double click Documents and Settings.
Double click on your username or Owner.
Double click on Application Data.

Note: if you do not see this folder, click on Tools, then Folder Options, then click the View tab. In the Advanced settings box make sure Show hidden files and folders is checked and click OK.


Double click SPORE Creature Creator.
Double click Preferences.
Find the file named login.prop and right click this file.
Select rename and rename this file to loginold.prop.
Once this is done start the Creature Creator and you will be able to register for a new SPORE account. To ensure that you have the ability to switch between accounts please:

Click on Options.
Click Online Settings
Make sure the Prompt on startup box is checked.
Note: Only one SPORE account can be created per email address.

In Vista the directory names are a little different, but I was able to find it. Hope this helps someone. It sure helped me!

Can you post on how to do this on Vista please?

Vista translation here;

First things first, to make sure you can see hidden files and folders, goto "control panel" and then "folder options" you will find this in the classic veiw. Goto "veiw" then find "hidden files and folders" check the circle that says "show hidden files and folders"

Okay now that this is done, do the following;

Computer
C:
Users
Your current profile
AppData
Roaming
Spore Creature Creator
Preferances

Now do what the OP tells you to do, and you've got it.

Wow thats a nice little trick. My gf's nephews LOVE the spore CC but they're 3 and 4 so they never needed to make an account anyway.

What if "The registration key used to install this game cannot be validated"?
