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.

The installer searches for an "ENGINE.exe" and "readme.txt" in the destination folder. The original game has those files, so it should work as long as you have the 2003 game by Akella installed.

Some on-sea nation relation and AI code was indeed rewritten about 1-2 years ago.

Sounds like it may be the Intel problem. You can give this a try: Moddb.com

Some fixes were made relatively recently for cannon sale prices.

Somebody did actually start work on a Spanish translation a while back. I'm sure he'd appreciate your help.

You may want to try Windows Vista SP 2 compatibility mode.

Nowhere. We have three versions of the Black Pearl included in the mod, but not a special damaged version.

You mean where IS CharlestoWn on Nevis? There should be a bay with a fort; that is where you enter.

Oh wait, are you playing as a Naval Officer?
If so, that is an intentional part of the gameplay:

Instead, you get bigger ships for free upon promotion.

If it does work with that, for some reason the game is not running from your NVidia GFX card.

The Installer EXE actually tells you what to do:
"Place 'b14_beta4_final.tar' in this folder to continue."

If you do that immediately when it tells you, the installation would continue without you having to restart the installer. If you don't, then it'll fail that part and skip.

It does still try to install the Update Files afterwards, since you may accidentally have selected the "Main Files" when you intended to only install the Update.

So that explains why you get three messages in a row. They're there to help you. ;-)

Does not sound like an issue I've heard before. If installed correctly, that should work.

You might also consider updating to the latest internal version that we're working on:

I've had that issue with the game showing in the lower right corner myself. Setting the game's ENGINE.exe to use the "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)" Compatibility Mode solved it for me.

The colour of the sea can be changed through code if you like. It is even possible to make it green. In Build 14, for example, it turns light Caribbean Blue when you approach shores.

If you use the Intel Fix on Build 14, there is some code in place to tweak the sea colour to look as good as we could get it with that fix. Still not brilliant, but you're probably not going to get better. Best is of course to not require that fix.

For the Intel Fix, you can also try the archive attached here: Piratesahoy.net

As for the "20 HP curse", that is an unintentional bug. You can find a fix for it here: Piratesahoy.net

That and many more fixes/improvements can be found in here as well:
