Black & White 2 Cheats

Glitches

  • Easy kills

    Use your fire miracle to set fire to a tree, and then pick it up. If you then hold it over enemy troops, there health will deplete and eventually the squad will die. This works even in the enemy's main city.

  • Infinite Evil Points

    Take over a town anyway possible and remove all of the food and population. Now you should be getting evil points every few minutes due to the fact that you are not feeding the town, although nobody is living in it.

Easter Eggs

  • Norse mini-game

    On the fourth land, near the town you began, there is a path that goes down. There is a man in a cave here. Throw him away as far as you can. The further you throw him, the more tribure you will get. Set new records to get more tribute each time. This is NOT a quest and doesn't show up anywhere.

Secrets

  • Afford anything

    This can be a complicated but nifty little trick that not everyone will know. This will NOT work on pre-saved games.

    Go to the directory where you installed Black & White 2, and find the file "GameBalanceArtefact.txt" in \data\Balance\ directory

    copy the file to a safe location--you may need it later. once you have done this, open the file stored in the directory listed above. You will see the values for everything on the tribute menu. Look for something similar to this:

    ARTEFACT_EPIC_WONDER_NUMBER_VOLCANO 100000
    disregard the other numbers. change the value directly to the right of any artefact and you WILL change it's tribute cost in the game. Do not change it below 1000 because it may not work properly. You can do this with every one, but make sure to change the total cost at the end of the file to whatever it now ads up to.

  • Change The Villagers Names

    To change your villagers name go to the where you installed BW2, and go into:

    ...\Black & White 2\Data\Text

    here you should see a .txt file called Villager Names. Change the names in the file. Leaving the 'M' or 'F' before the name e.g. MJoe Bloggs

    Load up your game and press 'S' which will bring up all the names of the villagers, and look for the ones your names!

  • Increase Impressiveness

    Go to your game folder and navigate to \Data\Balance. Find the file PlacementData.xml and open it in Wordpad. Find the third paragraph, which starts <object type="abode" name="greek_abode_c">. Change the line <basevalue impressiveness="0.2" /> to <basevalue impressiveness="20" />. Then open one of your saved games and place several villas. They will make your town massively impressive and you will win the land you are in. This will affect all saved games.

  • Infinite ore

    Go into C:\Program Files\Lionhead Studios\Black & White 2\Data\landscape\BW2

    Open one of the Land[numer].BWE files with notepad. Scroll down until you see something like:

    CREATE_ORE_LODE("912.90,514.99", "Ore Lode Normal", 2914, 1000, 0.000000)

    Change normal to infinite, and repeat in every Land file. Changes won't take effect until you move to the next land, however.
