Minor Glitches Edit
Minor Glitches are anomalies users detect in an instant, they normally happen during a short brief time and it corrects itself the next time you enter the game.
Major Glitches are those which users discover and realize to happen more than once; they are probably what programmers never thought could happen.
Occasionally, if you use Galactic Adventures Adventure Creator and make a creature in the space stage and possibly in Civilization stage, a giant picture of that creature will appear covering one quarter of the planet.
Patch 5 Glitches Edit
The two main features that were introduced in patch 5 were the ability to make parts in all editors asymmetrical by holding down "A” and the ability to ride vehicle of all types without slipping off. These two things will obviously cause many new glitches.
Slave Epics Edit
It is unknown what causes this glitch. In space stage in a planet, vehicles will become epics, but still have the same AI as vehicles. Attempting to kill one will instantly kill it.
Big Babies Edit
Very rarely, when a baby grows to adulthood, its eyes and feet will still be surprisingly large, 2x bigger than other adults not affected by this graphical glitch.
Submerged Huts Edit
Very rarely, if you start a game at tribal stage, your hut will be submerged underwater, causing your tribe to be stuck and starved.
Submerged Nest Edit
Rarely, your Nest will start the creature stage in the middle of an ocean or other body of water. Because this doesn't usually happen, you can't eat anything and there are no other species to attack or socialize with. Even more rarely, you can't go on to land at all without being eaten by the Sea Monster.
Freeze Baby Freeze Edit
Sometimes in tribal stage,(No matter how far your camera is from the baby) baby animals will not exhibit any animations, including blinking and breathing movements. This wears off when the mother moves or you do something with their nest.
Civilization Stage Crashes Edit
Upon installing Patch 5 and GA, the game may crash when you try to start a game from Civilization stage.
Asymmetric Adventure Part Glitch Edit
If you put an adventure part on an asymmetrical limb or another asymmetrical body part, the part will appear on that limb and not be symmetric. (This is most likely intentional, but is also logical, and yet again, a bit of a pain, depending on your intentions) When you enter the test-drive mode, sometimes that part may flip extremely fast just like masks do in the tribal editor test-drive mode.
Rotating Parts Edit
If you place the Level 2 energy regeneration helmet on top of the Hop Gogs (the Bard part that looks like a mask and lets you dance) and use the orange morph handle to increase the Hop Gogs' power level, the helmet part will slowly rotate in place. If you let go, it will stay where it is.
This glitch also happens in the vehicle editors, as seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vcgoBQfuhg It seems to happen when many small detail parts are place upon each other, and the one at the start is manipulated.
Bugged Vehicle Editor Edit
Sometimes if you immediately go to the Sporepedia after saving a vehicle, and then go back to the editor screen, the editor will look bizarre, as seen at the end of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vcgoBQfuhg
Asymmetrical cell glitch Edit
Little is known about this glitch, it is yet unknown what causes it. The only thing in it is that it causes the players cell parts to be asymmetrical, even if they are not holding A, and a cell isn't able to eat food, except using a proboscis on creatures. Once it occurs it remains in the game forever.
Skating Glitch Edit
Sometimes when you download patch 5, creatures and your captain don't move their bodies at all. They can still do everything normally, but their body won't move at all and they never make any sounds. So when you move they won't move their legs so it looks like they're skating. The only way to reverse this is to uninstall and reinstall Galactic Adventures. This also happens to your space games where when you talk to an empire or your empire, they don't move or talk. It doesn't affect gameplay, but it looks really annoying and boring. The player can fix this by changing their graphics settings and restarting the game.
Sporepedia Crashing Glitch Edit
Sometimes when you download patch 5 after you download Galactic Adventures, whenever you try to view your Sporepedia the game crashes. The only known way to fix this is to uninstall and reinstall Galactic Adventures.
Missing Animations Glitch Edit
This is a known compatibility issue with Spore Galactic Adventures. If you install patch 5 right before or right after installing Galactic Adventures, every creature animation (i.e. jump, walking, attacking etc.) will be gone and when your creature moves in test drive, the creature stage, or an adventure, it will make your creature look limp and lifeless and will be moving as if it was being pushed by something. The simplest fix is to copy all the .package files from Spore "Data" folder into Spore Galactic Adventures Data Folder. This should bring all the animations back. If this does not work, the other alternative fixes are to never install patch 5, or install everything in this order: Spore>Galactic Adventures>Creepy & Cute>Patch 5. This problem also occurs if you install the Bot Parts patch as it upgrades the game to version 1.6.
No-Leg Glitch Edit
Legless creatures may occasionally crash the game, making the Slugger achievement difficult.
No Chieftain GlitchEdit
Bot Part Glitches Edit
Glitches involving the new Spore Bot Parts.
Floating Legs Edit
If you have a 3-jointed Bot Legs, you can raise the lowest joint of the leg, and the feet will be raised into the air as well. If you make the feet raise higher than the body, the body will sink into the ground.
Tribe on creature planet------------------------
i doubt many people have experienced this and i don't know much about this but sometimes a tribe from a save game will be on a creature save but i never played that save again so i don't have any help if you have this
Singless creature crashes game Edit
If you use the robot mouths, they won't have a singing sound, if you try to socialize a creature with the singing tone, the game will crash.
Spore Creatures Glitches Edit
Wrong colour glitch EditThis glitch is pretty interesting it happens sometimes in the place where you save your creature. But once you saved it and you go back to check it, it’s fixed. It changed back to normal.
Wrong music glitch Edit
This is a glitch that causes the music to be different than it's supposed to be. For example, on Baysee, it may play the Arclart vs. Cricktor music. This glitch can usually be cured by progressing. Pretty much for the example above, progress to the battle scene, and it should fix itself. But sometimes this glitch may progress to completely shut off your file's sound! However it usually occurs during replay mode, so it isn't too big of a threat (except for replay-mode part hunters). Similar glitch V
Sound shut-off glitchEdit
Rarely, Most sounds will shut off (i.e. Dance hits, Digging, Calling, grabbing, Etc.) Most common in trunkle.
Bubleebu mouth glitch Edit
This glitch will often occur when your gameplay creature has a Bubleebu/Ohi mouth, but the creature's body doesn't make the Bubleebu sound. For example, it will probably happen if your creature has a Supupie body and a Bubleebu mouth. This will cause either the sound to shut off like the wrong music glitch, or the backgrounds will bug out on screen. Strangely enough, the Salafend mouth will not cause this, so this glitch isn't caused by mouth type.
Sound effect shutoff Edit
This glitch causes the same thing as the major version of the music shutoff glitch. It usually happens when your creature's mating call is soft. The main symptom is the sound effects shutting off when doing a mating call or getting near Noodlin's beach. This glitch always progresses to completely silence your file, and the only cure is to delete the file. However, the bodies that make a Supupie noise are less likely to cause this, because of their deep mating calls. But bodies that make the Broogus noise are extremely likely to do this, so don't use those! (Remember, it only happens if your gameplay creature has a Broogus, Gorgue, etc. body, so don't be discouraged by other creatures that make this sniffly noise.)
Stuck In Water Edit
Sometimes this happens if there is a fruit in a smaller lake of water and your creature goes to eat it. Your creature will get stuck, and cannot leave the area. The fruit also cannot be eaten. To fix this you must die from starvation, sending you as a baby back to your nest.
Spore Hero Glitches Edit
Freezing Creatures Edit
Although rare, sometimes if you give fruit to certain creatures, the game will pause and an empty speech bubble will appear. After a few seconds it will disappear, but the creature you gave the fruit to will be frozen, and you won't be able to interact with it. This can be fixed by exiting and then re-entering the level.
Continuous Battle Music Edit
Sometimes, the combat music won't stop, even if you have paused the game or exited the arena! The most known fix for this is to save the game, and turn off your console. This can also happen with the editor music, which can be fixed by exiting and re-entering the area.
No Background Music Playing Edit
Sometimes when you enter a level, no background music will play whatsoever. It is unknown what causes this glitch, but it may occur if the Spore Hero disk is dirty or scratched.
Floating Parts Glitch Edit
Occasionally, when editing or making a creature, after you get any part (except arm and legs) out of the palette; you will get the "Spit-Newly Acquired" or "Bite-Newly Acquired" or whatever abilities you would get from the part you picked, even though you haven't put the part on your creature. If you let go the part, you will lose your newly acquired ability. However, if you undo, then redo,the part will be floating in mid-air; you'll also have the ability you gave your creature back.
- Note: If you hit the check-mark with the floating part on your creature, it will not be there, and it'll be useless, even in combat.
- If this glitch is done successfully using a foot, and your creature is footless/legless, when moving your creature around, it will act as if it has no legs or feet.
"Install Feet" Glitch Edit
Sometimes, after you install the feet to the idol, the goal will still be there. This is continuous, and you won't be able to go on into the rest of the game. Solution: Make another save game.
Asymmetry Glitch Edit
When editing a Creature sometimes parts on one side may suddenly disappear. This can easily be resolved by clicking the remaining part. However, sometimes the glitch may occur after you have clicked the check-mark, which is extremely annoying if you are editing a Creature such as Beast or Yacque, as they cannot be changed back.
Spore Hero Arena glitches Edit
Legless Creature Edit
When editing a creature, drag off the legs, but don't delete them. While holding the legs click on the 'done' button, your creature will have no legs! You will still be able to kick, but you will crawl along the ground like a legless PC Spore creature. This method can be used for mouths.
