For the most part Black and White 2 runs pretty well on modern systems - unfortunately if you have newer graphics cards the game sets the graphics options to ultra low, my fan patch should fix that. Install the game and then install the following patches in order and your game should run flawlessly.

Patches:
v1.1: http://www.bwfiles.com/files/file.php?id=587
v1.2: http://www.bwfiles.com/files/file.php?id=695
Fan Patch: http://www.bwfiles.com/downloads/files/bw2_fan_patch.zip (unzip to the game directory overwriting white.exe)

If you continue to have issues after this you can try the following steps:
If that still doesn't fix it, don't be afraid to ask for help. Have fun playing Black and White 2 :)

Hi! I have a problem with game. She is crash at random time. I also use windows 10 and new amd driver. Game is patched to 1.2 and i use your patch too.  Almost forgot, your advice with zero processor priority is not help to solve my problem.
I hope that someone will help me.

By the way, if you have blurred picture, you need to disable antialiasing and that is all.

I seem to be getting crashes upon clicking Continue with the fan patch installed. Loading a game I saved manually works just fine though.

Edit: Well, never mind. Seemed to be a corrupted quick save. Starting a new game fixed it.

Running on Mac?

The Mac version was released recently on the Mac App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/black-white-2/id437519881?mt=12 it's recommended you use this version.

i tried these patches in the latest windows 10 nvidia 940m it does work.

So I installed the first two patches and dont know where to put the fan patch, not only that, but I go into the task manager and White.exe doesnt even show. I have tried everything and I cannot get the game to get past the main menu, I press play and the menu disappears and thats it. What am I missing?

***UPDATE** Fixed it. I don't know if the other things I installed before this thread helped but I extracted the fan patch to the files x86 and went to lionhead studios- Black and white 2 and told it to extract and replace. I launched the application and it worked! I have been trying for days to get this to work so I am so thankful for this thread!!

Hi
I'm struggling with launching the game. I ran the updates and copied over the patch, but in the end i get the game to launch then it switches back to my desktop. The game is running in the background and i can hear the music, it also appears in my task bar ad task manager, but no matter how many times i click on it it just takes me t a black screen an then back to my desktop. Please help.

P.s. I don't think the patch is the problem because yours isn't the first patch i tried.

Hi guys!

Just thought I'd give a lil helping hand - sorry if this isn't the right place to do it - yesterday I probably spent a good 5 hours uninstalling and reinstalling B & W 2 desperately trying to get both the game and trainer to work on Win10, so I thought I'd share my fix on the page Google constantly redirected me back to; maybe I'll save other people some time!

If you have the Black and White 2 Trainer v1.2.0.1 by LqdGroover, you'll most likely be getting 'White is in memory - Not Connected' in the top right.
To get it working with your game, all you need to do is right-click BW2v12_Trn_v1201.exe (or whichever version you're using) -> Properties > Compatability -> Tick 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' -> Windows XP (Service Pack 2).
I haven't tried with other compatibility modes, but this is the one which got my Trainer Connected.

Good luck!

Erm... I'm REALLY sorry for creating an account JUST to post one question, but please, throw me a bone here: Is there a fan patch for the BotG expansion as well?

Hello.

After finding out that a Black & White YouTuber is creating content again I felt the urge to build some cities myself.

Unfortunately I'm experiencing stuttery and unresponsive vertical mouse movement.
I'm using Windows 10 with a Logitech G402 mouse.

Any ideas are appreciated.

EDIT: It appears like the game isn't comfortable with a high polling rate of your mouse.
Lowering it as much as possible helps a lot. :)

Handsome Matt hasn't created a patch for the expansion yet but there are a few no CD patches on the internet.
I'm not sure if they are illegal but it worked flawlessly for me the last time I tried.

so I downloaded all the patches, 1.1 1.2 and the fan deal, and when I try to download the 1.1 it says that I don't have black and white 2 downloaded on my computer, it is, legally, dled by disk. I'm on windows 10.

Place both 1.1 and 1.2 patches in the main Black & White folder.
You know it's the right place when you find the executable named white. :)

you need the fan patch to even launch the game, make sure you copy it over white.exe

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm getting a bug in BotG whenever I try to cast an Epic Miracle. Basically the camera goes ballistic and the sound file of the miracle plays, but nothing actually happens. Well, almost nothing. There's a small miracle marker where I cast the thing.

I found somebody else with the same issue, but it remains unresolved.

http://www.gamespot.com/forums/pc-mac-linux-society-1000004/black-amp-white-2-battle-of-the-gods-siren-issue-26815962/

Everything is patched and up to date (playing BotG)

EDIT:
Well, I thought the patch fixed it, but now the problem persists. I think it has something to do with the transitioning cutscenes (where you see your villagers surrounding the wonder right after you cast it). Sometimes it happens and the epic miracle cast fully and sometimes the camera just goes crazy and the epic miracle isn't cast.

Also, this is a tad off topic, but Alignment seems to be stuck.
