Hello Matt! Your guide on how to get B&W working properly is amazing. One question though... how can I get the game to allow me to load my saves? It brings me back to creature selection no matter what I do. It's not even loading my save from save on exit or autosave after hours of gameplay each time. I'm on windows prof 64 bit.
Actually, I believe I resolved the issue by reinstalling to a games folder I created instead of the program files x86

Hi Everyone,

I recently updated my system to Windows 11. When trying to get B&W to work I thought I'd give a try to Matt's description anyways.

My problem concerns the installation of patch 1.2. Here's the error message:
It says "Access denied".

I gave it a try by continuing installation with patch 1.42 and then starting the game. The game only plays the intro and crashes when reaching the loading screen.
Hopefully one of you has an easy fix for my issue with patch 1.2 because I guess that's the culprit in my case :(
