               VILLAGE BANTER  FAQ
                  by MasterViVi
    
    
    ============
    Introduction
    ============
    
    To start with, this FAQ is old. Really old! The final revision
    (V.1.08) is dated 20th December 2001. Oh well, I decided to submit
    it to GameFAQs because the questions about the Village Banter keep
    on being the cause of new topics on the BWgame Boards. Second,
    it seems a lot of people like to read the stuff the villagers say.
    Oh well, time to start this old, small FAQ. ;)
    
    
    ===========================
    What is the Village Banter?
    ===========================
    
    After downloading this, you will be able to hear the secret thoughts of
    your villagers. A word of warning - the villagers' banter may not be as
    flattering to you, their deity, as you might like!
    
    
    ===============
    What do I need?
    ===============
    
    You MUST first install patch V.1.10. Otherwise it will not work.
    Of course, V.1.20 or V.1.30 are also sufficient. I recommend using
    V.1.20 though, as it's the only version people use to play online.
    
    
    =================
    How does it work?
    =================
    
    All you need to do is zoom in to the as close as you can, and their
    innermost hopes, desires and dreams will become audible.
    
    
    =============================
    How do I know how this works?
    =============================
    
    The normal way is just to zoom in at those villagers. This doesn't
    always work though (even never for most people), so the following
    is the best way.
    
    First look for a house where there are people inside (hit S to see this).
    Now zoom in as close as you can at the entrance of that house,
    and tap the house. There will come villagers outside and say something.
    If not, the Village Banter isn't working properly.
    
    
    ===================
    Is it multilingual?
    ===================
    
    The Village Banter willl always be in English, no matter what version you
    have.
    
    
    ===================
    Where to download?
    ===================
    
    Well, since I first published this FAQ (even before the aforementioned
    date), the official mirror hasn't changed yet. Let's hope it stays that
    way.
    
    Lionhead mirror:
    Http://www.lionhead.com/downloads/B&W_Villager_Banter.exe
    
    The second mirror I'll give you is KayssPlace, by far the best
    Black and White site out there. This one will stay online "forever"
    I presume.

    =================
    What do they say?
    =================
    
    This is what they're able to say. I may fix the wandering question marks
    someday, but they say A LOT.
