Yes. As some of you know, the free demo is/was going out with some magazines in the UK.

I am seriously considering shelling out the $10 for the full Creature Creator on Wednesday.

I will probably do whatever I can to get my hands on the full game as soon as possible when September rolls around.

If you haven't been following the game much, it is currently slated for a September 7 release. However, starting June 17, there will be a free demo of the creature creator available (about 1/5 of the content of appendages and textures), and a full version of the creature creator available for $10. Check out both here (http://www.spore.com/getSpore/index#ccgetspore)

Uh, I broke your Dath combo :3

Spore looks like it's gonna be amazing. If I can get my hands on a next gen console of my own, that baby's goin' on my christmas list.

Ahhh!

I want to play it right now!

This is killing me :( I've been wanting to play this game since the very first talk about it and previews I read years ago...

Actually, since 'Darth' would sound rather like 'Dath' in certain parts of the world, I don't think you have... Wally did :p

On topic... I haven't a clue what y'all are talking about... *runs to look*

I was commenting on accents, not spelling errors, actually. No stuck pig-style gutting required. 'sides, it'd be sheer idiocy to think of you as anything other than 'Dath' all these years later... don't you think?

Writer's mine to gut. And hang with meat hooks.

As for Spore, I'd love to play it once it comes out. If only I'd manage to get a new graphics card and a motorcycle(w/ license) by then. Seems like an interesting enough of an idea to provide endless hours of fun and virtual mayhem :p

AHHH!!! THE CREATURE EDITOR IS AMAZING!

That is all.

EDIT: Oh. and Ave, the requirements are pretty low... I'm confident you should be able to play it on any computer that's like from like, you know, the stone age.

WINDOWS XP - 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent - 512 MB RAM - A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 - At least 6 GB of hard drive space.

Well, It's endorsed by Robin Williams. So I have to try it out.

That Robin Williams video with Spore was ****ing fantastic.

Was fun, but anyone else notice huge clipping issues?

Hmm, Spore sounds tasty since it was announced, a decade or two ago.

It leans its head in the direction its walking while its arms flail behind it. I call it Pibip.

Murloc is cool, I played that game and got really far, I stopped playing after a few days though, don't know why just did...

So to repeat my question... anyone else have clipping problems on their monster? Like, sometimes the head goes into the body on mine when he does certain animations...

MrWally
06-19-2008, 05:19 PM
Yeah, I had that problem. I'm not sure if it'll be fixed by the time the game comes out, but I just got around it by messing with joint locations in arms/legs and the like.

Ok, now, I got this from the latest CAD news post. It worked there, and I don't know if it'll work here, but it's pretty nifty. Go to My Spore Creations (should be in documents or something) then click on the Creatures folder. Then, drag those creature photos up there from the browser into that folder. Then get into creature creator (I have mine on windowed mode), click load a creature then click on "Everything." Then drag the photos straight from the folder into the creature creator. You should now have my creatures. Now someone try it and tell me if it works. :p

"This application has failed to start because d3dx9_27.dll was not found."

Any suggestions?

EDIT: Never mind.


EDIT (again): CURSES! My graphics card is below the minimum spec...
