Black & White 2 b Lionhead Studios - retail v1.0 -> v1.1 patch
This patch addresses a few issues that were found after shipping the game to
the manufacturer, as well as a few balancing tweaks that we feel really improve
the Gameplay in the Lands. The exact changes, along with the known issues and
installation procedure, can be found in the ReadMe with the patch.
A known issue with this patch is with the save system. Save games from the
retail version of Black & White 2 (i.e. Version 1.0), are not compatible with
the v1.1 patch. If you have old save games, it is recommended that they are
removed from your My Documents->Black & White 2->Profiles folder before
starting a new game with the patch. This will then prevent any conflicting
problems between the two sets of save games. The above procedure isnt vital,
it is just advised. The patch is not vital either.
