10.5: Run Spore in OS X 10.5.2

I assume that you could save yourself some steps by making a read/write disk image of the install media then just changing MinimumSystemVersion to 10.5.2.

Use at your own risk - either there may be some piece of code in the game that relies on a patch or bugfix or new feature available in 10.5.3; or the vendor only validated against 10.5.3 specifically.

10.5: Run Spore in OS X 10.5.2

I probably should have mentioned this already, but I tried several times to create a read/write disc image, to no success. Even attempting to create an image from the image still had the second-generation image show up as read only!

I assume this is either due to the ISO filesystem used on the original disc, or perhaps due to SecureROM.
