Unfortunately I have been unable to play Project Spark on the PC since 2016 and I updated my PC, and PS crashed to the desktop every time I tried to launch it, and so I have not been able to utilise Sparkshare, which is a huge shame as I was planning on utilising it for future Sparking after the shutdown. I can now only play on the Xbox.
If there is no way to get a digital download for Project Spark for PC any more, and users are finding updates to WIndows are creating bugs and problems then maybe, and sadly, you are
flogging a dead horse.
The Xbox users are however increasing, believe it or not, with some new players coming to the game through purchase of the starter disk from various sources. The Xbox Team Club is increasing numbers all the time, and there is more activity through YouTube and Streaming. I have relaunched the School of Kode website which I add to every day, and it does have a new forum (though currently not subscribed to). So, the Xbox Community are very much alive and kicking, but then we can still play Project Spark with only a few small issues caused by the shutdown. If the PC players cant successfully run the game any more, and your service does not apply to the Xbox player, then it is ultimately doomed.
If it is a financial burden to you then there is no shame in calling it a day. But, if you have it on Xbox then Spark is still very much alive and players should consider joining the Project Spark Team club, contributing to my website (always happy to receive articles and tutorials) and subscribing to my YouTube channel where I will be putting up regular Project Spark videos, including compilations of post shutdown creations.
Sorry if this post seems like an advert for my stuff. You have done an amazing job with Sparkshare. It is a huge shame that PS is disintegrating on the PC, but I think we all knew that could happen.

We can still keep the Spark alive. If you want to have your own section on my website for PC players then please contact me and I will see if I can set something up.
