Hello qwer!

Black and White will not run on WindowsXP without downloading the patch. So, go to this site download and install the Black and White patch v1.2. http://www.planetbla...iles/essential/. This should make the game run smoothly if not you will have to set the game to Win98 compatability mode. To do this right-click on the runblack.exe and click the compatibility tab at the top and change it to Win98. Hope this works for you qwer.

Well, Lionhead studios has had a lot of trouble with users trying to play B&W on XP. The patch works for a lot of people, but it doesn't always work. The last thing I can tell you is to go to that same site and download the v1.3 patch. Then follow those same steps and set the compatibility to Win2000. If that doesn't work, then you may need to just go and buy B&W2 which I know for sure works for XP. Hope this works.

Yeah, They have had trouble with XP and ME. If that does not work then you won't be able to play the game. I would suggest getting B&W2, it is a better game in my opinion. But hope this works for you.
