I just reinstalled PotC and also installed your mod, but I can't launch the game.
I get a Visual C++ Runtime Error every time I try to start ENGINE.exe (more specifically "abnormal program termination"). Googled this for a while now without satisfying results...
Visual C++ Runtimes are installed in various versions...any ideas?
Just found out on the piratesahoy forums that I need to install Beta 1 before I install the patch 7...been quite a while and I thought that 650MB package would be it Since it said FULL...maybe you should add that to the download description since the patch is on the main page and the requirement to download the full beta beforehand isn't that obvious.
Will try now and report back...

This will be much simpler once we release Beta 2 next month; the exact installation instructions are posted in the download description, but you need to press "+ more" to actually see it.

Installing beta 1 worked like a charm
Adding "FULL" to the name of the patch can be kinda confusing...I could have just read the description first, though.
Maybe add a message to the installer asking people to install beta 1 first or even a link to the DL.
Thx for the great mod!!
