discussion Project Spark - Completely Unplayable Since March 2020

Recommended Posts

As we all know, Project Spark got cancelled years ago but it was fully playable in offline mode as long as the game was installed on PC.
Well, as of March 2020, the game simply crashes upon booting. I am unsure if they made some silent update that breaks the game or what causes the game to crash but it simply no longer seems to work. I am not the only one who has this problem and I read some people also report it.
Is there any way to fix this? I really wanna play Conker again.

Out of curiosity, are there people still able to play this game? 

On reddit, one person claims to be able to still run it but some claimed they can't. One person said that crack is being made however I still got no response when I asked for source.

I hope it will be made as it would be shame to not have this game archived. It had fun idea and it was something like Dreams but before Dreams was even starting development for PS4.

It did not deserve to get killed so early on...

Yeah, sadly Microsoft is great at disappointing.

The only good thing they did recenrly imo is being dedicated to bring Xbox games on PC such as Halo games, even going that far releasing it on Steam.
But sadly, like you said, they usually disappoint.

I can no longer play, as of a few days ago. I had just started a new game (3rd person fighter plane dog fighter) and it's now crashing during launch due to not being able to connect to multiplayer WHICH HASN'T WORKED IN YEARS! I know it was an update because they changed the graphic on xbox at the same time that the trigger was pulled.

Yeah ive been trying to get it running for a while, i've gone through windows advisors and emailed skybox labs n everything, no one is really any help tho, i managed to get a download for it but it still dosent work, as you say it crashes upon launch, i very much hope someones working on a crack as i've literally got years of work on there, spark was a huge creative outlet for me and for it to suddenly become completely unplayable meant i lost soooooo much work on a big game i was creating within a night, its such a shame, i'll be carrying on the search but i hope someone can figure it out if i cant lol.

      There are basically no good games any more...
      I don't know about anyone else, but I have become extremely bored with PC games over the past year and now I can barely bring myself to play much of anything. There is no more being pulled into the games feeling. All companies have done over the past 5 years is mass produce the same game that has already flooded the market.
      The Madden effect (As I call it) has finally come full circle. The madden effect is a term I refer to the madden series. All the Madden series does is, add a player, rearrange some play book moves, slap a new number on it, and then say it's a new game. But it's not new game it's the same exact game as the year prior.
      I'm also tired of the1st person view/parkour, guns, and or zombies. There hasn't been anything special in the past 5 years. Because of what's happened to games, I actually have more of a desire and drive to play original xbox games..
      Anyone else feel this way?

      Ok so for awhile now I have been uploading all my cover art work and scans and pretty much any other image I wanted to post to Please login or register to see this link.
      Now I noticed that befoul I want on holidays the owner of the site owner (yeah the sight was run by on guy just so he could post pics in the internet and was only meant for him) had closed public uploads and you had to have a account to upload and you couldn't make a account so i was like ok ill email him when i get back but now I'm sorta back i noticed that the hole site is down and abort 95% of all the pics I had up there have been deleted so a lot of my post will not have cover art or scans when i get back properly I will go though all of my uploads and re-upload everything like I did when google kicked my off for being a bot. Please note all my download links should still work fine but please feel free to let me know if they don't but yeah this cover scan issue is unrelated to my links.
      Soo yeah when i get back properly I'm going to have to look at a new image uploading site and it be awesome if you guys had any suggestions
      But me me being me I have very pierce criteria for this site.
      A. It needs to be as clean and as quick as possible. Yeah drag'n'drop is nice but img.cat was just a simple ascii site with a simple upload button. with my shitty Australian internet I don't have time to wait around for a fancy html5 website to load only for it to time out when I'm trying to just upload a simple jpg
      B. Has to allow for file sized of around 10MB in size. most of my uncompressed scans are around 8~15MB so 10MB is a nice medium even know img.cat file size limit was 5MB but it was sorta a pain most of the time and it would be nice not to have to worry abort that anymore
      B.5. Has to allow of either unlimited uploads or anonymous uploads where they don't track how many things you have uploaded
      C. it must not mess or compress the image in any way. This one is going to be sorta hard to tell for most people but it's important to me.
      Some sites I have tested
      The cover scan im using for my test is my own scan that has almost no editing or resizing, i think it was only re-encoded as a jpg and thats all i did to it but this a typical size scan I upload for my post.
      It's size is 6400x4316 @ 8.33 MB
      Please login or register to see this link.
      Compresses images, bloated site
      After upload imgur re-sized the scan to 2560x1726 @ 918 KB
      Please login or register to see this spoiler.  
      And then there is literally any Please login or register to see this link. clone ever but that might be a deep dark rabbit hole I don't think i want to go down unless I have to...
      NGR direct
      This would work well as all my games already get uploaded there so I could upload the scans at the same time but we have to pass or the links from there through a link shortener and that shortener doesn't do file extension and theirs no way I can see to fix that without defeating the purpose of the shortener so I can't embed them (well I don't know how anyway) I could embed the raw link from NGR direct (the streaming link not the download link) but I would have to ask @Yukiko or @Djdragon44 if I'm allowed to do that.
      But yeah if you guys have any other suggestions please let me know

      Well that's it, what are you currently watching ?
      You can go with "im watching sakura" or give a lil review about what have you [not]enjoy so far, to maybe make us go and watch it too!.
      Im watching: Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
      I gotta say at first kind of turn me down due to the -cute- anime style (that's until the guy grab the bat then shit start to happend), but the history actually caught me and made me want to know more about it, because is told in a curious way;
      The story goes in chapters (ie 4 episodes compose a chapter) the chapters tell the same story about the curse in the town, tell us something about it, or about those that where involve and then end around the day of the festival. And we continue into another chapter that start from the beginning (as nothing happend), but goes deeper into the story from a diferent point of view on the same setting but with differences, also as those chapters develop we know more about characters and the curse, which each chapter having diferent outcomes.
      Since the source of this animu is a visual novel, that explain why would we have to "replay" in order to grasp the whole story.

      I would recommend it if you want some mystery in your animu and like when things go crazy without a proper explanation (which in theory should be resolve later on the anime... I hope ) the bad thing is that as far I know it consist of two seasons with 26 episodes and some ovas. Long ones sometimes drag too long and get boring and tedious, I hope this is not the case.

      So i didnt know this and somehow it doesnt suprise me. But there is a Live action Yakuza movie called Like a Dragon. Its cheesy as far as movies go but its in all the right ways. Its a condensed plot of the first Yakuza game. Came out in 2007 and if you look it up on Youtube it has english subs.
