Can't Install Creature Isle or Patches - Win 10
« on: Feb 02, 2019, 09:36 pm »
Hi everyone!
I'd like to pick up this game again after so many years but I ran into a problem. I can install and play the game no problem on Windows 10... But I can't install Creature Isle or any of the patches. I get a message saying "You must install Black & White to run this patch". When I want to uninstall the game isn't recognised by the system either under programs.

I've been looking around and I only found one person with the same problem. According to them:
   
Creature island has 2 security checks to ensure that the base game is installed, it looks for the file Allmeshes.g3d in the Data folder and the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{E51B4CD9-A0A6-4324-B26A-31B3F2DE26CE}\LogFile in x86 or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{E51B4CD9-A0A6-4324-B26A-31B3F2DE26CE\LogFile in x86-64. if it cannot find either of these things it throws up an error.


I don't seem to have a log file and I'm unsure how to go on...

Thanks in advance!

I can install Black & White and it works with fan patch 1.41 on my Windows 10 PC. I can't however get Creature Isle to run as Handsome Matt or anyone else has not made an unofficial fan patch yet. The wait goes on....
