Did you just re-install the game?

Are your profiles in the game directory?

There is nothing in the Black & White\profiles folder?


There should be a folder for each profile. How many did you have?

And there's nothing in the profiles folder. ???

If that's the case it sounds like you've might of lost those profiles somehow.

Click on Start then Run and type in regedit

This will open the registry editor. Now Do a Crtrl+F to bring up Find and type in lhmultiplayer.
If you open that there's a Profiles folder. Do you see your profiles in there?

You see how the profile name is in the registry editor with the underscore like this. _p_r_o_f_i_l_e

Do a search of your computer for either of your lost profiles using the name as shown in the registry editor. Also check your recycle bin. I'm wondering if they either got moved or deleted somehow.

It sounds like you've lost them then.

The only thing to do now would be to uninstall the game, delete all of the folders and files except for Scripts\Playgrounds and Scripts\CreatureMind. Although your profiles are lost your creature isn't.

Then re-install B&W, apply the V1.20 patch and start a new profile. Once you've finished that blasted tutorial and get a creature, it's easy to swap him with your old creature if you wish to do so. Look under "Lost Creatures" in this FAQ.

You should also get in the habit of backing the game up using BWBackup

That's not a problem You can re-install it since the key doesn't get erased when you uninstall.

Go into the registry editor And search for EA Games. The should be a Black & White folder. The ergc folder contains your registry key. Write it down and keep it in a safe place in case you do need it some time later on.

I've never had to change compatibility. It's always worked the way it is for me. But if you need to use Win98

So whenever you start the game it's from the begining again?

Right now I'm at a loss for an answer. When you create a profile the game should automatically create a folder in the profiles directory. It is being added to the registry.

Try not saving in the temple. Autosave is turned on by default and the game will save on exiting. Also try Ctrl+S for a quick save. I forget how to recall it though.

Are you logged in as administrator?

Ok, so problem solved then.

If you've got the pics online hosted somewhere then place the url inside img tags like this: [esc]
[/esc]

If not upload them to the Gallery, you do have an acccount there. There's more info in the Gallery forum
