Hey, this is my first request for a game here.
I tried myself to port it with Wineskin and CiderX but I don't think I have enough knowledge for porting this game, because in the AppDB it has a Silver or Bronze rating depending of the Version.
I've searched in the forum and found out that, as i understood, there was a cider port, but I had not been able to find it.

Game Description:
Black & White is a computer game developed by Lionhead Studios  and published by Electronic Arts and Feral Interactive. It is a god game released in 2001, which included elements of artificial life, strategy, and fighting games.

The player acts as a god and takes control over villages across several islands. Black & White features a unique gameplay element, a creature that the player can raise and teach. The game was highly anticipated and overall well received.

Thanks in advance for every try!

I'm going to look into this...but buying a game twice isn't great :P

At least it means that it runs without flaws =)

Thanks for telling me!

Yeah, but in the end it shouldn't stop you from trying to port it yourself ; the same happened to me with Europa Universalis III : there is a native mac version of the game, but I own a windows version. It took me a few months, but I was able to create a working wrapper! And it helped me learn about porting in details!

I don't own B&W, so I can't try my hands at this one. I know the instructions on WineAppDB seem complicated to follow, but that's not to say a wrapper is not possible!

Good luck!

If there is a problem with one of my wrappers, please let me know by posting on the game thread AND by sending me a pm.
If there are no problems, then a little "Thank you!" is always heart-warming! ;)
