please patch black and white to 1.10 and post results on that version
Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Installs from disk just fine. After install Copyright systems in the program scream that you put in the original disk. This can be solved with the no cd crack for the correct version of the game.
What does not
I had issues with the game no showing correctly on my screen. It glitched to the bottom of my monitor and there was no way for me to move it up as it was in full screen mode. If there was a way to play the game in a window it would have no problems I think.
What was not tested
Everything after initial start-up.
This is too good of a game to leave in the garbage list!!!
To run Black & White (and Creature Isle) without being affected by bug 14939 (texture bug), bug 15984 (crash bug) and bug 25417 (mouse 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:
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).
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.
