Problem: The villagers are invisible. You can see any objects they carry, but the villagers themselves remain invisible. You're playing B&W2 on a laptop with an NVidia or ATi chipset made for laptops (Nvidia GO series, or ATi Radeon Mobility series) and you're using the latest driver available from your laptop manufacturer. Cause: The drivers supplied by the laptop manufacturer are often outdated. Solution: Install DNA or Omega drivers. If that doesn't help, you can try to forcefully install the latest NVidia or ATi driver yourself. Please consult this topic.
