I do hope, at some point, there is a realtime hardcore mode.

I want to kill out your race, dammit.

There is a strong contingent of vagina monsters, too. Don't discriminate. Unless you're into lynching tree monsters, then discrimination is probably intrinsic.

So, decided this looks like fun and worth 5. After about 30 mins of trying I manage to get the UK Spore website to work and pay my 5.

Then the EA Download Manager, after insisting on creating a new top level directory in my C: drive (won't install in /Program Files/ for some reason), will not work. Cannot see the internet. Insists there's no connection. Like wtf? Please don't tell me this shit has trouble with a NAT router?

So, I bittorrent the pirated version of the Creature Creator and install it using my valid, paid for key. Fire it up. Nuh-uh. "There seems to be a problem contacting the license severs. Please check your internet connection is active and try again." Like wtf? Is this thing really unable to cope with NAT?

Anyone else have trouble with it?

OK, heh, sorted it, kind of.

Official, real, paid-for version of Creature Creator refuses to run on my machine. Cannot connect to internet. Disabling firewall doesn't help, not much else I can do, EA's support still haven't replied.

Pirated version of Creature Creator runs fine, connects to web, authenticates no problems, allows me to use my actual PAID FOR account details.

Well played Maxis/EA.  Ohhhhh, I see.

Not saying this is the case here but, to be fair, most companies don't think it's their responsibility to figure out what piece of crud on your PC is screwing up something that works the vast majority of the time.  The 5 - 10 bucks they make off your purchase is generally not worth the tech support cost.

If there are rampant problems that stem from their software, then yeah, they should fix it, but if it's you?  Well, why should EA, or whoever, pay for your maintenance bill?

Sure, but the converse of that is why should I fuck around for hours trying to work it out myself either when:

a) everything else that requires access to the internet seems to work fine,
b) I can just download the pirated version which works flawlessly straight away and
c) they don't respond in a timely fashion to their own tech support page?
