1. Install game from ISO or legit copy.
2. Install updates v1.01/v1.02
3. Copy the crack with the corresponding version you updated your game to.
(Only updated to v1.01 then copy the v1.01 cracked SporeApp.exe)
(Completely updated to v1.02 then copy the v1.02 cracked SporeApp.exe)
Do NOT try to install the update with an already cracked SporeApp.exe in the game folder, it will fail the install.
If you already copied a cracked SporeApp.exe over the original and do no wish to re-install then....
1. Mount or open your SPORE ISO.
2. Locate X:\Spore\SporeBin\SporeApp.exe
(X: being the drive letter where you mounted the ISO)
3. Copy the SporeApp.exe file from the ISO into the folder....
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\SPORE\Sporebin\
(Assuming that is the directory you installed the game into.)
After you replace the SporeApp.exe with the one from the ISO then run the updates.
Only copy the included cracked SporeApp.exe into the the installed game directory when you are completely done with all updates that you have planned.
