I just decided to try to get Black & White up and running on windows 10 and found these patches.  Unfortunately I cannot get Creature Isle up and running.  I would love to see everything working in windows 10 if possible.

Well hooray.  I managed to fix it by installing all of the patches in order -- I guess I misread somewhere back that you only needed to use 1.4
Tried everything, new install path to just c:/BnW, ran as admin after fresh installs, changed res around...and then saw this...did everything again but patched 1.1 / 1.2 then 1.4 and more .exe has stopped working, made it passed the loading screen it was crashing at. Hope others see this post as well.

Sounds like a problem with graphics drivers / not having a graphics card at all - what are your system specs

I am so confused. My brother who installed Black & White 2, without much hassle (Windows 10) tried to help me with installing it, since I felt the urge to play it. But when we tried to do everything we found about it I was greeted with the dreaded "Could not create 3D device". I did everything there, installed the game, installed the patches in order and all.

I use Windows 10 BTW.
Technical Help / The game is laggy as HELL
« Last post by valgaav on Sep 11, 2017, 09:46 am »
Hey there!
I finally managed to run the game, but now it's very slow/laggy on certain occasions.
A lag starts upon certain actions and it freezes the game for 5-30 seconds, e.g. when I'm casting a miracle for the first time after loading the game/entering new land/etc., when I start a silver/gold scroll, when an even triggers where an NPC will talk to me, when a cinematic starts, when I start picking wood/food/etc for the first time (e.g. food-> fish, from the warehouse, from ground, each of these cause the game to freeze), when casting miracles.

What can be cause of this?
I have a good pc, definitely too good for BW1. I'm ruinning patch 1.1,.2,.4. I'm running the game on 1920x1080 resolution, maybe I should go with the game native resolution, i.e. 800x600 or whatever was the highest? Or maybe the grahpics quality is too high and I should go with lowest? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance

Got my replacement disk, followed instructions for the patches and everything worked great.
However now that I'm trying to advance to the second land, the game is crashing.  Always in this spot.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you

Did you check and make sure you have the most recent patches as well as the user patch?

I've gone ahead and ordered a new CD.  I'm going to do a full uninstallation.  Just so I know for when I'm reinstalling, where exactly do I save the patches to? Also which is the best compatibility mode to run in?

The patches are just exes, you can run them from anywhere regardless of where they're saved. Don't run anything in compatability mode - install the game & patches as admin, and just run the game normally with no compability mode and not as admin.
