So I was able to get Black and White 2 running after downloading the patches.
But I don't understand how to run the Battle of the Gods expansion.
When I downloaded the expansion all I see are reloaded.nfo, rld-botd.bin, and rld-botg.cue files.

Am I suppose to put those somewhere? I downloaded the BOtG patch as well so I'm seeing the BattleOfTheGods.exe but every time I run it I get a "The code execution cannot proceed because binkw32.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program fix this problem."

Any help would be nice.

Hi There,

Hopefully this is still the current place to get help on getting this running.

I've followed the instructions and can get the game to start up, and I can create a profile and press 'New Game'.  Unfortunately whilst loading the game then crashes.  I suspect this maybe graphics card/driver related but just a hunch at the moment.  When reloading the profile created has disappeared so does not look like any settings are saved.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

Running Windows 10 (1709)
Processor: AMD FX 6350
Graphics Card - AMD R9 290
Radeon Software Version - 18.1.1

Checked event viewer and get an event ID:1000 (pretty generic)

Faulting application name: white.exe, version: 1.2.0.0, time stamp: 0x43e21f5f
Faulting module name: white.exe, version: 1.2.0.0, time stamp: 0x43e21f5f

As well as trying your guide installing the patches 1.1/1.2/1.3 have also tried a no-cd patch and trying multiple and various combinations in the comparability menu.


Thanks in advance.
