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.patchCheck 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.
