It's been a long time since I tried to play spore on my iMac. I reinstalled it today and whenever I try to open it my screen will go black, a blue box will flash on my screen, my cursor will change a few times then I'm back at my desktop. After all of this a pop-up will come up on my screen saying: Exception raised Unhanded page fault on write access to 0x0000000c at address 0x00e600c4. Do you wish to debug it?

Whether I click yes or no, my screen goes black with the blue box again. It quits only this time the pop-up is not there anymore.

Is it the Mac version or a PC version running on a VM (e.g., VMWare Fusion)? Have you updated the game to the latest version? – Jeff Mercado Dec 18 '12 at 2:03
