Trying to run BOTG, part 2
« Reply #105 on: Sep 20, 2020, 07:02 am »
alright, I got it running! Sort of. I've got everything in the same folder and it's working, at least with regards to the BW2 - I've got the tiger, which wasn't a thing before. So the thing seems to be communicating. But I tried to actually play Battle of the Gods, and it gets about 5 seconds in before the application crashes. I have the fan patch for it, and I've tried messing with the BoTG.exee file and going to properties, then running it in various compatibility modes, which doesn't change anything. I don't have any knowledge on how to change what graphics processor it uses, and the whole thing is a bit daunting tbh.

Any ideas? Thank you!

ive installed patch 1.1 and 1.2 , i got to land 7 (1 before the last land, maybe be 6) and then after several minutes into the game. its crashes to the desktop. i tried patch 1.4 same thing. tried reinstalling it on a laptop and another pc. reinstalled drivers, every version of compatibility mode. cant under stand how i played all way though game then its un playable. if i replay the land it does not crash, but once i get to the same stage before capturing the land aztec town it starts to crash again. seems like i will never get to the last land

(Posted a thread here: https://www.bwfiles.com/forum/index.php?topic=8315.0 )

I hate to be that guy.
Coming here with a question like this. But I don't know here else to look.
I recently created an account here for this question alone as I believe this is my only hope. I have posted this question elsewhere too, but I noticed this might be my only option. It seems that the community here is slow, and I can expect to wait weeks for answers. But I take my chances.

So, Black and White 2 is considered abandon-ware and can be downloaded on the net for free on myabandonware.com.
I have no CD reader on my rig and as such I need to get things digitally.

I got Black and White 2 and I ran into issues. First, during installation, Land 5 is skipped, so when loading into Land 5 transition it crashes utterly and I can not proceed. Second, Speech.lug error occurs during installation. No idea what it is or what happens if you don't have it.

I run on a Windows 10 64-bit system. Not sure what else to add.
I have installed it on multiple locations, in D drive, C drive original path or on the desktop. No dice.
I tried installing in compatibility mode XP SP3 with administration privileges. No dice.

Anyone can help? I have noticed people have similar issues here, so I hope I might be there one who get's it to work.

Good evening,

I'm new to the forum. I would have a problem. I have installed the game on Windows 10 and it gives me a problem when I try to start it. It tells me that I should log in with administrator privileges, I tried to do it by pressing the right mouse button (log in as administrator) but it still doesn't work. I went into the game properties, clicked on Compatibility and clicked choosing Windows 7 but it still doesn't work. Finally I installed the 3 patches you indicated but nothing does not start the game. I don't know how to do it, can you help me? Thanks in advance

Sorry for my english
