Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works

  • Intro movies
  • Profile creation
  • Basic gameplay (including mouse buttons)


What does not

  • Splashscreen
  • Many textures are not rendered, producing black or invisible objects (severely affecting gameplay)
  • Finishing the tutorial (crashes near completion of the Temple)


What was not tested

  • Multiplayer


Additional Comments

The game can be played without a no-CD patch if winecfg is configured for Windows versions win2k, win2k3, win2k8 or vista.

The texturing problems appear to be caused by the following fixmes:
fixme:d3d_surface:surface_convert_format Cannot find a conversion function from format WINED3DFMT_DXT1 to WINED3DFMT_A4R4G4B4
fixme:d3d_surface:surface_convert_format Cannot find a conversion function from format WINED3DFMT_DXT3 to WINED3DFMT_A4R4G4B4

HOWTO

To run Black & White (and Creature Isle) without being affected by bug 14939 (texture bug) and bug 15984 (crash bug), you have to run a version of Wine patched with the DXTn to ARGB texture conversion patch, blitting patch and the button click patch. To install this patched version of Wine, copy and paste the following commands into a terminal:

mkdir ~/src
cd ~/src
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git ~/src/wine
cd ~/src/wine
wget -O wine-dxt13-to-argb4444-xrgb1555-conversion.patch http://bugs2.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=34559
wget -O wine-dderr.patch http://bugs2.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=33563
patch -p1 < wine-dxt13-to-argb4444-xrgb1555-conversion.patch
patch -p1 < wine-dderr.patch
Check http://wiki.winehq.org/Recommended_Packages to make sure you get all necessary packages, or if you encounter trouble compiling. Then copy and paste the next set of commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make depend
make
sudo make install

With these three patches, Black & White is fully and perfectly playable through Wine.  If you encounter trouble patching, try looking at the bug threads for an updated patch (they are attended to more frequently than this Howto).

Set wine version to win98 for best results.

For 64 bit wine go to wiki.winehq.org/Wine64.


 
Intro Stall/No In Game Sound

A picture posted of the intro with the Man and Woman kissing and little kid looking bored is the point at which a stall may occur.  Settings for Audio need to be changed from hardware acceleration to emulation at this point.  You can track the bug at http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12651.

Patches out of date
by Mary Zunder on Monday September 26th 2011, 6:55
The patches in the howto and the latest from each of the bug pages fail with errors such as:

Hunk #1 FAILED at 3248

This is with the latest wine release from the git repository.

I tried 1.3.15 (Installed straight from Synaptic; looks fine, has no mouse problems, but still crashes at the temples completion) but, in spite of following the how-to to a tee and installing all the dependencies I've been unable to compile it properly.

I foolishly didn't record the errors (something with direct3d?) and am in the process of compiling to check these errors out again.

I made a wine package for openSUSE 11.3, 11.4, Factory and Tumbleweed including
the 3 patches for Black and White (Bugs: bug 14939 (texture bug), bug 15984
(crash bug) and bug 25417 (mouse bug)).
build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=wine&project=home%3Adamianator
the source and .rpm's at
download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/damianator/
Fixes also bugs: 6955, 20395, 17423, 20296, 16831 and more

Cheers,
Damian
