What is the best way to start modding black and white? From a programming perspective, making large changes to the game.

Technical Help / Re: BW1 on Windows 7/8/10

Just wanted to report that this patch is working for me so far, thanks.

I was getting the 'lh has stopped working' error at first, but after reinstalling the game to my system drive rather than my separate game drive fixed the issues I was having with the patch installs. So if anyone is having that issue, try installing to the system drive. I installed to C:\Black&White and everything seems to be working for me. (I removed the spaces at the advice of another post in this thread, it may not be necessary.)

Technical Help / Re: BW1 on Windows 7/8/10

Just a quick tip regarding the "An installation support file could not be installed. Catastrophic failure." error when trying to install. I encountered it when attempting to reinstall B&W in another directory. After tearing the registry apart for hours with no success, I discovered that Installshield puts a copy of the setup installer into "Program Files(x86)/InstallShield Installation Information" (you may have to check for hidden folders). Deleting the content in this folder cleared the error for me and I could install from the cd again.
I have exactly this error. Although I found the "Program Files(x86)/InstallShield Installation Information" directory, I have several sub-directories in it, all of which have different setup.exe (and associated) files in them. How do I determine which to delete - or would it be safe/ok to delete all of them? Please let me know.

Technical Help / Game corrupts itself over time
« Last post by herolich2 on Nov 10, 2017, 07:18 am »
It always happens eventually.
I can't go use save's, can't do skirmish, and can't go to the next land.
every time I do this and quit the game, it says that the program stopped working.

Specs:
I run the original with all patches and the fan patch. I also have creature isle installed, and Eruption too.
Am I supposed to just reinstall the game? so yes, how do I deinstall it without making a mess with the patches enz.

Thank you, and have a great day.

I just found your mod and it looks amazing.
I tried to do what you wrote in the readme.txt. and I got most of it right now when I start B&W CI I get the genesis intro picture, but I don't understand what you mean with the shortcut.
it would really help if you could post a few pictures on where/what I should change.
O and how is it going with the English translation because I really don't speak german at all :sorry

Modding and Scripting / miracles in script help
« Last post by nerodarker on Nov 06, 2017, 02:44 pm »
I have been trying to make my own script and is going pretty well.
But there is one problem I keep getting stuck on.
I have this with all towns, but there is one where it really annoys me.
It is like a Premium town with very powerful miracles.
But when I cast them I only get the standard miracle.
I used the code   
CREATE_NEW_TOWN_SPELL (0, "BEAM_EXPLOSION_PU2")   
I thought this was correct to get the extreme explosion miracle, but I just get the standard miracle can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.
