If you're on windows try not to unpack the .rar and using windows built in iso mounting utility, if you did not already try it. If it doesn't work i'm afraid i don't see what it could be.

Hey guys! I'm currently trying to get BW2 running on Win10 but the game just doesn't start. I got a fresh install of the game, with patches 1.1, 1.2, and unofficial 1.42 (in that order).
BotG Addon (incl. fan patch) works fine without any noticed issues so far.

What I already tried:
  • Several reinstalls (also with a different ISO file, mounting as well as unpacking the ISO)
  • Run without admin privilege (results in 0xc0000005 error)
  • Switched out white.exe to a cracked version from myabandonware (then it starts, but I get the population not aging issue)
  • Several compability modes
I also tried to install it on my laptop, however, then the game crashes as soon as I hit the play button.

Hey I downloaded all the patches and got the base game to work fine (it ran great, good job).

I can't seem to get BOTG to run though. It will start up and then crash before it has a chance to load anything.
