no clues here, i need to admit im helpless at this point...

my game work on version 1.0 with crack and BaW_Patch_2 to fix some low graphic issues. But i get mad with "death" spam without patches, and much else not fixed stuff.

1.41 won't work without 1.1 and 1.2 being installed prior. You need to be able to install those patches in order for it to work.

I think the issue is your installation media of the game, is it a disc from a non English country? You could try sourcing an English version of the game from somewhere online, it'll probably solve everything.

Technical Help / Freezing for a minute regularly
« Last post by plantfood on Yesterday at 07:30 pm »
Hi everyone,

So I'm pretty sure I had the game working properly about a year ago. When I tried it recently it would take a long time to initially load the game (the load bar doesnt move at all for several minutes then loads fine) and during gameplay it will freeze for about a minute every 5-10 minutes. Everything else seems to work well.

I'm running out of ideas of how to fix this, here are the things I've tried:

- Freshly installed a number of time following Matt's advice, deleting any old registries I could find
- Installed to a different folder from the default
- Tried various compatibility modes and I always run as administrator
- Played using minimum graphic settings
- Altered permissions on all folders
- Went into my Nvidia control panel and disabled a bunch of features for running Black and White and it didn't seem to change anything

I first thought it was the autosave but that always comes and goes quickly, saving itself is always very fast and I have no issues there. It seems to be that loading is just very slow. I wonder if something in the game loads periodically?

Has anyone else had this issue? Any other ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks!

Technical Help / Game Crashing when trying to exit World 4
« Last post by McGooTheWise on Yesterday at 04:59 pm »
Hey all, first post. I've been playing this game for years and recently decided to install it on my new machine (eternally thankful for the guide in the sticky, btw).

I never had the patience to beat Nemesis in world 5 in the past, but now I've gone and tried again and got through the rest of the game and world 4 in about 9 hours of gameplay. My problem is that after I've sent through every bit of help that I feel I will need, scaffolds, wood, food, villagers, artifacts, miracle orbs, and click the silver story scroll to move on, the game begins to load world 5 and then crashes before I get to the loading screen. I get a fade to black, the image of the portal with my god hand pops back up on screen, and then the game closes itself out. When I reload I am forced back to a previous save from before I beat the level.

When I go into the save game room I also see purple squares instead of the images of the save that I remember from years ago when I was playing on a Compaq with a 9.81 GB harddrive. Either that or for some reason I get images of my creature's body and tattoos, which is really weird. I know this game has problems with save files corrupting so I did the old fix and deleted all of my older save files, renaming my most recent save to "1", but now every time I launch the game it gives me the 1.4 patch start screen where I select how much of the tutorial I want to skip, and then forces me to start a new game. After listening to good and evil rave about the temple and the save game room (irritating  :rolleyes) I can go back to my save just before going through the portal. I'd like to not have to erase everything and start my game over, so if anyone has some advice...? that would be awesome!  :yourock:

I thought so. Sorry I can't think of anything else that could be causing the problem :(

I'm guessing that the problem may stem from my laptop having both an integrated HD Intel 4000 as well an Nvidea Geforce GT 640M. Oh well, it's no biggy, this game still looks beautiful despite its age. If anyone with a similar problem finds a solution. Let me know!
