Black & White (the game) graphic problems

Q: Black & White (the game) graphic problems

Hiya

As you may already know, by the title, I'm having trouble with the graphics of the game 'Black & White'. Everything like the trees and people, are very WEIRD things like eyes, or colours such as green. I have tried everything that I can think of, like downloading a patch from this website (I think it was voodoo 3DFX tools) unzipped it, then tried it, and it still didn't work. Everything else seems to be running smoothly, and problem-free though. Does anyone know what the cause of this problem ?

Help greatly appreciated, aswell as five million pounds.....

Thanks,
gamegeek2

EDIT: Website is www.voodoofiles.com/3201
EDITEDIT: (Man I'm obsessed with these!!) Oh yeah, and I've updated EVERYTHING such as drivers and graphic things, so don't ask about them.
EDITEDITEDIT: (Thats it I give up!) I also forgot, that before I had to reboot this computer, that the game was fine, except for the err, occasional crash (due to too many temple things) . And may I add, I hope this is the last edit I make

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Black & White (the game) graphic problems

Post your system specs, that will help more.

Did you check if there was a patch available for the game, and if so, did you install it?

Ok so 2 days ago my computer started showing white speck on the background and mainly on the windows taskbar. These specs only seem to appear when the computer is processing information. Every key stroke and when the computer is receiving information from the internet. Also Graphics in game seem to be really jacked up. Walls appear where they shouldn't and at weird angles. Characters have large spikes growing from their hands, feet, and end of weapons. I have tried to install an updated driver, scanned for viruses, unplugged monitor and still nothing has worked. Any information to help resolve this issue would be appreciated.

Also, have ATI Radeon HD 4800 series vid card and an AMD phenom 9850 quad core 2.5
I tried screen shotting the specks but they dont show up on screen shots.

I need help with taking a picture (Let's say, of the face of someone) then make it so the background is black and the face shadow is actually white.

I'll show you an example.

This is a shirt I bought yesterday. I'm talking about the face (That's an exemple, by the way xD)

Another Example

If you are able to do that, could you tell me how. Thanks in advance (=
 

A:Graphic Question... Change to Black/White.

You should get near to that effect by changing the image to a negative in your graphics software, then reducing it to two colours. If it's still not quite right and the white areas are black then change the result by making it a negative image again.

A:Solved: Photoshop CS2 - Black/White Checkered Graphic - like Nascar

Create a new doc the exact number of pixels across and down as the number of squares in the graphic you want.

Zoom in on the new canvas (it's small!)

Then use the pencil tool, set it to 1 pixel in size and create the squares in their approx location - at this size the pencil will look like a square.

Once done, resample your image (Image -> Image Size) to the size you want it to be - with Constrain Proportions checked and the interpolation method as Nearest Neighbor.

Done

oh yeah, zoom out again!

i've been trying to run this game on my current system, which is equiped with AMD AThlon XP 2000+ Processor, 512MB Ram, Geforce 6200 AGP8X DDR2 card, but game runs so slowly, so i searched online and patched the game, it still runs slowly, i had to downgrade forceware driver to 81.XXX to make it run smoothly, then it started runing smoothly with lots of weird triangular like artifacts, so i disabled the "AGP texture acceleration" from the DX Diag menu, now game runs good, not smooth as it is with AGP Accelaration texture but still playable, but biggest problem is, after playing for about 15 minutes, game gets stuck suddenly and computer monitor screen goes black, totally blank but machine is still runing, only thing i can do is press hard reset button, can anyone help me with this problem? Is there any patch to run this cool game properly? it's so buggy, but i remember it ran very well back in 2001 days with my old geforce 2 pro cards, i looked for a way to disable agp fast write, but i am unable to find that option in my bios or anywhere else, please help out fellas, thanks a billion in advance,

Bit of a long story but here I go.

I have 2 Radeon 6950 with the crossfire thing set up, it's been working well for over 2 years.

Over the last few weeks I've been having issues, mostly while watching videos (usually HD and/or full screen). The video will freeze, the audio will loop, then eventually the screen goes black and I get an error message saying "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered".
Sometimes it didn't recover and I have to turn the computer off.

What's now happening is it will freeze at the windows start up. Then after resetting I will get to windows in very very low resolution and in black and white.

So I 're-seated' the cards. I couldn't notice any obvious damage to it except the fans were very dusty so I cleaned them.
Boot it up and I still get the black and white.
I checked the device manager and it said one of the cards was having problems, I uninstalled both drivers from that menu (not quite sure if I should have done this) and for whatever reason it's now working.

However it now seems one of my cards is not being recognised. Only one display adapter is shown in the device manager and AMD catalyst only recognises one card too.

What's the best course of action to determine what's wrong with what card (still not quite sure which one it is).

Ok this is what happened I have been playing Black and White for about a week now and everything was going fine until today. I played earlier today and it was fine then i quit playing. I performed a defrag and created a quick launch icon those are the only things that i did. then later i went to play again and the game started all over at the very begging..... very discouraging.....and was wondering if there was a way to see if my game was still saved on my computer anywhere (I hope) Or if not, what might have caused this so that i can avoid this from happening it the future. All replies are appreciated. Thank You!

A:still problems with black and white tv extended desktop

Well there are a few things you can try/check.

1) Make sure you have the newest video drivers for your video card. These are available at the respective manufacturers site.

2) Make sure you are using the right connector. If you are using an adapter such as a SCART to connect your computer to the TV, make sure it is capable of supporting your video mode. SCART connectors only supports composite video and therefore if you are using S-Video you will only be able to receive a black and white picture.

They other day I bought black and white for the bargain price of £5.00... or so I thought.The game installs fine- I have no problems there. But when I try to play it, it just... doesn't load. The black splash screen with 'black and white' and all the other info comes up as normal, for a few seconds, then dissapears, as I suppose it should, but then nothing. I've tried to change the compatibility, to no success. Bearing in mind my computers quite good (512MB RAM, 1.6GZ AMD Athalon, graphics card 128MB, and, of course, the games screwing up spurce itself- windows XP) I don't see what other problems there could be. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks.

I'm having problems printing black and white photos using ADOBE Photoshop 7 and Canon i965. On Standard printing, plain paper, and to a lessor degree on other paper types, am getting parallel horizontal lines with a pink/magenta cast when printing a single colour such as blue. Recommended Adobe conversion features, I convert colour pictures to black and white, all produce BW prints having a Brown colour cast. I have replaced cartridges and used all printer maintenance actions to no avail. Inserting a picture into Word and then converting it to BW has the same effect. Is this a solvable problem?
 

A:Help-Black & White printing problems with Canon i965

What is happening with the black I think is that most printers print raster images by mixing the colors to get black. Some don’t do a great job of it. You might run a nozzle check to see that nothing is clogged.

If you scan the document originally in one bit it might print better. One bit is “line art” or “black and white” on most scanners. You can also try Image>Mode>Bitmap in Photoshop. Then use the threshold command to clean it up so you don’t get the extraneous stuff. Once you get it into bitmap you can select a solid color.

If it won’t let you switch to bitmap you could mess with levels or contrast to try to get the extraneous stuff out. You might mess with the histogram in the scanner to clean it up as well. It sounds like your scanner is picking up the extra stuff you are seeing.

If you have a HP printer most have a “black only” under grayscale. That won’t help printing in a solid color though. With black only you use only the large pigmented black tank.

Hello, i need to ask people of this problem because i cant figure this out...

Recently, iv upgraded from a GeForce 5500 (which had no problems in the past) to a GeForce 6200 (which is fine for me, out of date i know).. Im finding that whenever i open anything pretaining to Video games or even just random occurences, that it hard-locks and the graphics get very odd.

So, i figured that maybe my computer cant run the game. And it can. So i ruled out that aspect. So it must be my GeForce doing this to me.
So, does anyone have any idea what my problem is?

hey, didn't know whether to put this in utilities or games. it's all game-related so i figured here would be best.

ok. *deep breath* lately i reinstalled windows XP Pro SP2, and i believe my CPU is slightly unstable, either that or my memory. either way my computer needs some new parts. but it runs fairly well. but when i reinstalled it, i gained an unsightly problem.

Upon installing xfire, i discovered that at least 3 parts of it were malfunctional. the ad bar at the top, the info sidebars of the chat windows with avatars, profile links, etc, and the screenshot window you get when you exit a game are ALL white. i can't even click them. and i soon discovered that my problems were not limited to xfire, and this confused me even further.

Steam suffers as well. I installed Steam today and everything works fine. i can see the buttons, tabs, and toolbars at the top, but the actual content in the window is white. nothing. it gets even better....

I own the game pack Star Wars: Best of PC (amazing game pack btw), and when i run the autorun, GUESS WHAT? IT'S BLANK!

this is bugging the crap out of me, because i don't know what's causing it. my main thoughts were Flash Player, Shockwave, or Javascript. nope. i installed them all(correctly as far as i'm aware) and it didn't help a wee bit. my antivirus is Avast! Antivirus, and i've reinstalled xfire 3 times with no luck.
 

A:Solved: white boxes in Xfire, Steam, and game autoruns.

nevermind. it turned out to be that my ATI Radeon 9550 video card's drivers were corrupted. i uninstalled them, ATI Catalyst, redownloaded the drivers without getting catalyst, and got ATI Tray Tools.

No - thats one of the flaws of BW1. You can't skip the tutorial or the video. It isn't that long anyway.

Hi all,
I'm having a serious problem running black and white 2. Pleanty of people have been having trouble getting it to run, but I have as of yet seen anyone address a problem similar to my own. I've recently installed the new catalyst 5.9 driver for my radeon 9800 + all in wonder, and I figured that would resolve some of the graphics problems I'd been having running the game. Unfortunately, after the installation, the game's diagnostic tool reads no display memory on my pc! Then when I try to run the game, I get a fatal error that reads "cannot create 3d device" and the game shuts down. Much appreciative of any help you could offer here!
Thanks,
Dylan

Welcome to TSG!!

... It may have "bonded" to the old software...
You could try removing the game and reinstalling..

That is the first shot when it worked but now won't.. That, or go back to the older ATI drivers..

can you do a system restore to before you started making all the changes
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore
Click in the radio button Choose a different restore point
Click Next
put a tick in Show more restore points
Pick a Date before this happened
Click Next
This should restore the PC to that time & date

you may need to use safemode to do the restore. As the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu will appear - choose safemode

It's on the Mac's. An option to make your screen like a negative picture, white is now black, people are ghostly. Any way to do this on the PC?

Not that I know of, there might be one though.

You're not going to be able to do anything like that with windows 7 starter.

i've tried all the options available to me in the control panel for the display (the tv is pal and i've adjusted accordingly). still black and white. the only thing is, i'm going from s-video to composite converter. do i just need to buy a cable that has s-video sockets on both ends? my tv has both AV and S-video. but i've always used the AV before now...
 

A:TV-out is black and white

oh hang on, i've just noticed the s-video output on the graphics card is 7 pin. but the cable i've got has only 4 pins. will a 7 pin cable solve my problem?

Hi, I have successfully installed and used VirtualDrive 6.2 on my computer, but am having problems creating a usable image file of the game Black and White.

I think it is probably down to copy protection. Even when the image file is in the 'drive', Black and White still asks for the CD to be inserted.

Any comments?
