I started modifying games many years ago, when I first made reskins of existing ships and eventually made new ship models myself for the sailing simulator Virtual Sailor. After doing this for a couple of years, I joined the PiratesAhoy! forums and ended up taking over modpack compiling for the Pirates of the Caribbean Build Mod from the notorious Nathan Kell. As such I have contributed to the release of Build 13 Final and am still active in the development for Build 14: New Horizons.

Hey Pieter, I'm having a very hard time tracking down swiftshader 2.0 for New Horizons et al and I was wondering if you had any suggestions? All I have is the game installed and an "engine has stopped working" error message when I try and start a new game... thanks a lot... R

We don't use SwiftShader for Intel compatibility anymore. This here works much better: Moddb.com

beste, pieter iik probeer b14_beta2-1_full.exe te downloaden voor: New Horizons" mod for the 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean game by Akella. Maar elke download link voor de mod werkt niet. als ik op save or open druk gebeurt er niks zou je de file mischien kunnen stuuren of ergens anders kunnen uploaden.

Hey, I just got this game. I tried to start it up and i got to the main menu, but when i select "new game" the game closes and brings up a message: "ENGINE has stopped working." I am not very computer smart, but i have spent many hours trying to figure out solutions. I download this Swiftshader, but don't know what to do with it. I have also installed the build 14 mod, all that changed was the game closed after I selected my storyline. I would really appreciate any help, I have hit a dead end. I am using a new laptop with windows 7 and an intel integrated graphics card if that info helps. Sorry to bother you with this, but it seems that you are very knowledgeable on this game.
