Possible B&W Patch Issue?
6:00 AM | Seth Scott | Comment on this story

Gamers experiencing issues with the recent patch for Feral Interactive's Black & White might be interested in Dair Grant of Zonic's recent posting to the newsgroup. He responds to a poster complaining of unpredictable pauses in the game:

We've had one other report of this so far, but we're not seeing it here.

Can I ask you a)check the Console application and see if any log
messages are appearing and b)let me know (at - remove NOSPAM) what your network connection is (modem, Airport, ADSL, etc).

Something to try in the mean time is to put a file called "commandline" in the application folder, with a line "-noinetconn" in it. This should turn off any network code which might be getting activated - right now that's our best guess as to the cause.

Black & White is an immersive and graphically rich "god-game" brought to us by the creator of the classic Populous. The new patch adds Gameranger support, improves GeForce video performance, and fixes multiple bugs, including a previous freeze issue.
