Hey guys, i made an account to let you know that i managed to fix the pirate version that crashed.

What you do is follow all the steps he has given, however you will install patch 1.2  then his version and run the exe file you get in the end (8460 kb one). You can't install the fan patch first, if you do it will crash at the beginning after you see the intro video. So basically install patch 1.2 then fan version the way he described and run the exe with admin.

After i did this i got past the intro part and could create an account but then it crashed. however the next time i opened the game it worked fine. I'll let you guys know if i have any problems.

There is ONE big issue with all these files. Most Anti-Virus programs, Norton, Avast, Windows Defender, Windows Security Essentials and so on, read almost every file as a virus, malware or otherwise. Bit annoying. To keep them intact and undeleted I've had to store them all in zip files. Otherwise, I LOVE YOU GUYS THAT MADE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

I do miss having the game in Swedish Language, but I can technically fix that, but that means less addons I think, unless none of the patches have any spoken language, then I may be fine. I can just reinstall otherwise.

As for Swedish Language, I managed to save the installed files from the old computer I had when I first played this game ON ITS RELEASE, LionHead had a studio in Sweden and they re-recorded every line in Swedish. So glad I still have it all saved! If there is anyone that wants it in Swedish though, bear in mind - it is not just the text and spoken words, IT IS THE ENTIRE INSTALLATION FOLDER. I still don't know how to separate any of it. Need help with it.

oh wow, I remember playing the game in swedish and the population constantly screaming " vi vill ha mera mat". Do upload mate :)

Hello,

I recently started having trouble with B&W1, used to play great on Windows 10.  Now it crashes as soon as it starts to load.  I can see in the event viewer that it's generating exception code 0xc000005.  This appears to be an access issue. 
I have purged the installation, reinstalled vanilla, applied the fan patch.  Same issue fullscreen or windowed.  Tired run as admin, compatibility mode, disabled high DPI and what not but no dice.

Unfortunately I had to manually uninstall the game do to a "catastrophic" error with the uninstaller.  I searched the registry for every entry it may have made and purged them. 

Has anyone seen this?  If so, how did you fix it?

Thanks,
Char

So, I got the game to work (Yay Me!) But I cannot get the in game music to work ( :help). I could hear the music in the outro, intro, and the magical stones in world one. I copied the audio file and placed it in my C: drive as suggested but nothing works. I want to continue playing tonight but I also want the music to work. If I could get a reply soon that would be much appreciated, please and thank you.

All you need to do is copy the Audio folder from the disk to the game directory, it will prompt you to merge the folders.

I did that. I checked between my windows and your example, yet I hear no music. Could my skipping the 1.2 patch be part of it? Otherwise I am out of options. Thank you for your help so far!

For anyone that wants to play Creature Isle on Windows 10, you'll indeed require the NO-CD patch, as Handsome Matt mentioned earlier in the thread.

You can download it from here:

http://www.gameburnworld.com/gp/gamefixes/blackandwhitecreatureisle.shtml

If you want to play in 1920x1080 open up Regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lionhead Studios Ltd\Black & White\BWSetup and find the ScreenH and ScreenW keys, change the value of ScreenH to 438 for 1080 and the value of ScreenW to 780 for 1920.

It's working fine so far a few hours in!  :)

Hello.

I have been trying to install the game for few hours now, but everytime i run the installer i get this message. https://imgur.com/JokXkaj
I'm using windows 10 64bit and legit "sold out" copy of the game. I'm the administration, have been using the installer as administrator, tried to disable UAC and have deleted all the registery nodes.
Funny thing is also that the installer creates that folder and installs ikernel.exe into it, and installshield starts running in the background.

Edit: Nevermind, i got the game working by installing and patching it on my laptop, then simply transferring the files to my desktop.

I have had that problem when I installed in other than default, was doing fine in default, but not in other location. I could not install patches and I could not uninstall either. The only way I could get rid of it was by doing a system restore to before the date I installed B&W1.

You probably have the resolution set too high or something similar, try changing it to various ones lower then your actual laptop resolution.

If all else fails windowed mode should work well, I realize it's not as nice as fullscreen though.
