Merry Christmas :) I've just finished the fan patch for BW2: BoTG and have created user friendly installers for both Black & White 1 and 2. These patches include various bug fixes to make the Black and White series run as smoothly as possible on your new modern systems. Downloads and support threads are below, have fun :cool:

* Black and White 1 - Fan Patch v1.4 (http://www.bwfiles.com/files/file.php?id=1418)
* Black and White 2 - Fan Patch v1.3 (http://www.bwfiles.com/files/file.php?id=1421)
* Black and White 2 BoTG - Fan Patch v1.1 (http://www.bwfiles.com/files/file.php?id=1422)

* Running Black and White on Windows 7/8/10 (http://www.bwfiles.com/forum/index.php?topic=7916.0)
* Running Black and White 2 (and BotG) on Windows 7/8/10 (http://www.bwfiles.com/forum/index.php?topic=7917.0)

Is anyone interested in Creature Isle enough for me to patch that too?

There's only a couple of changes in the patches, but a lot of bugs would probably be fixed as subsequent to the changes. Mostly graphical issues at most though.

I'm certainly interested in creature isle!
Anyways, I'm pleased to say that the epic miracle camera issued was resolved with that patch. It's nice to see that volcano again.
Only thing was that alignment seems to be stuck, at least for trying to have good alignment. It simply won't increase. Creature alignment is fine.

Hello and welcome! :)

Follow the steps described in these two threads carefully.

http://www.bwfiles.com/forum/index.php?topic=7916.0

http://www.bwfiles.com/forum/index.php?topic=7917.0

The first link is for the original Black & White and the second for Black & White 2 with its expansion Battle Of The Gods.
The one thing that isn't noted in the second thread is that you might need to place the patches into the main game folder before trying to execute them.
That's atleast what I had to do.

Good luck and if you have any questions or issues arrising feel free to ask us.

A "Patch", to play creatureisle (like B&W1) in windowed mode, without using the D3DWindower would be fine.

Because with the D3DWindower, the mouse don't works perfectly and sometimes (if i minimize the game), the game crashes.

I definitely am interested in a Fan Patch for Creature isle. I got the other games in the Black & White Series to all work in my Windows 7 32 bit OS but i can't get Creature Isle to load up. It just spins and does nothing. So frustrating. Please please can u patch that too like the other games so I can play it on my System. I'm sure others are having the same problems. :(

I just stumbled upon these marvelous patches and had to instantly register only to be able to write these two cents..:

1] Thank you very much for making these available. You are doing "God's Work" (pun intended).

2] I would like to say that I ould LOVE to see a patch for Creature Isle as well... Currently I am using all three patches and would love to have one in the same vein for Creature Isle as well!

Keep up the good work!
Greetings from Germany.

I for one would love a Creature Isle patch!
I've managed to get it running on Win10, but it looks like I'm having the issue with the graphics being set to low. Fan patch solved that issue immediately for Original B&W, so I'd love a CI one!

Thank you so much for patching these. It's allowing me to re-play one of my favourite childhood games!
