Possible to use a save file from the build 14 3.2 version on this? Or is a new game required?

Hi!
Anytime when try to update the game an error message pop up to me. Sometime it wants the original game (although I've already installed it) and in other case the error message says: Something was wrong during the installation. Now I'm playing the last update (not this update) so I hardly accept that is something wrong with it's installation. I'd like to play with the new update but i don't know how because it doesn't install for me. Can you help me?

That is possibly a bad download or maybe a corrupted file.

Since you have an earlier version running you should be able to get this new one running as well. I am playing beta 3.4 now and it installed with no problems and I downloaded it from here.

I'm glad it's working for you. Sadly it isn't working for me. I've downloaded from here just like the other updates, I have the 3.3 update and it worked fine. That's why I don't understand why it isn't working for me (the new one). I can download it completely. And 2 error messages pop up for me: the first one is something is corrupt. Which is I don't understand because it worked till that point. The second one is: I have to use the original game and i already have it and installed it.And when I saw the error message I had installed it again. So that's why I'm asking you what can I do? Because until that point everything was working fine.

We recently added a CRC check into the installer EXE to prevent installing from corrupted or incomplete archive files as that used to happen once in a while. So if you wonder why you didn't get that message On Beta 3.3 or earlier, it is because the check wasn't built in yet at the time. But it is now and if you get that message it means that even before there was an error with the archive file.

As for any messages related to the original game, you simply have to point the installer to a folder that has ENGINE.exe in it as well as readme.txt . If you point it to any other folder, it will refuse to install since that wouldn't work anyway.

Great work! Realy best pirate game ever.
Why I can't shoot when the aim is yellow or green? First time it's need to damage sails, second - to attack "white flags" and simple friendly ships. It worked in original game, i remember. But now damned merchants ruined my frigate to rapair cost about 200000, raised white flags and gone away. Offensively :(((

You can still use the V-key to manually fire your cannons.

Though if a ship surrendered, firing on it will cost you dearly in reputation. If it surrendered to you, you can just board her without a fight. Much easier.

So all we have to do if we had the previous version was install part one? I did that and I got a runtime error. Any suggestions?

Nevermind, I forgot to uncheck the full install.

I'm getting an infinite black screen when I try to launch the Master & Commander storyline.

Scratch that, every profile I try to launch fades into a black screen and stays there permanently.

Ignore my past two comments, the error was, as expected, my fault in installation.

There is no such character in the game. But using the Select Storyline interface, you can choose your own model and name and basically create your own "Leif Erickson".

Hello folks, I was just wondering. When downloading. .... do I need to have all the previous updates or can I just download build 14 straight away? Sorry if that sounds like a silly question, its just I really want to play this game again. Its my first game I ever had on the xbox but unfortunately I cant find it so I bought it for the pc and I wanted to try these amazing updates you have done! The videos look amazing!

All you need is a running stock POTC, and then just download Part1 and Part2 and put them in their own folder. Then just hit the EXE. It unpacks itself.

Okay so, In real life, how did people sail their ships if there is a head wind? Realistic sailing in this mod is crazy, AI ships can sail into a headwind, the player ship struggles to get out of port half the time..

Also, how do you improve the actual strength of you crew? I'm getting tired of them being 1 hit by just about everything I come across, im on journeyman difficulty (step up from basic).

Can I keep the realistic settings on and some how script out the head wind negative speed?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Sorry for the late reply.

The method used to sail into the wind is called "tacking". No ship can sail directly into the wind, so you have to sail at an angle to it. When the wind changes direction, then you have to change tack and sail in a different direction also.
Real sailors had to deal with this too. On Columbus's 4th voyage he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in just 20 days but later it took him 75 days to sail from Central America to Hispaniola because he had to tack against constant head winds.

Early in the game everyone is weak. Give them better swords and armor and they will last longer.

Fair enough.

I'am having a crash issue, I'm not sure what the cause is and I haven't changed any of the games files, I can't make port in Port Royale, I can land on one of the shore places like "Devils Throat" (i believe thats what it is called) and walk into town.

I have verified that once in town, I cannot access the "Port" Location at all, whether I'am accessing it from the ship or accessing it from being in the town it's self. This was working previously.

To fix this problem will take some work. It might just be a bad download or install or something got corrupted.
Post about that here.

It seems to have about 70% chance to crash, otherwise i can play normally. After leaving the island it's working normally, for now at least.

Hi
I just found your Mod of PotC, I loved this game in that era!
So I found the CDs and installed it, it ran fine. But patch doesn't work!
1. Installed to C:\Games\Pirates of Caribbean
2. Downloaded both parts and installed with intel and ENB checked.
(I have Intel Corei7 and Intel HD3000 Graphics)
3. After installation, when I run the game, I get Visual C++ runtime error.
4. Completely Removed the game and installed the patch with only default features (Main+Update). Same errors.

Logs:
error.log >

I am having a very small irritating problem. (for me at least) When I invoke the wraith of the heathen gods and take the Aztec gold from the chest on Isle De Muerta. At night my crew members don't turn into skeletons they just look like they normally would Its just me that looks like a skeleton. everything else related to the curse works like the holes in the sails and the fog. I find it really annoying, is there anyway to fix it? is anyone else having this problem?

Do you still have those Cursed Coins? You have to put them in the Weaponslocker in your Captain's Cabin. Otherwise you as captain will be the only one cursed.

With the upcoming WIP version (internal one already available here Piratesahoy.net ), you can start the game immediately with you and your crew cursed if you like.

Hello, I like the mod a lot, but is it possible to implement only the added boats, weapons, items and the resolution, but don't change the game like changing oxbay or changing the starting boat. tnx

You can get old versions of the mod here: Moddb.com
Both Build 12 and Build 13 do not include the island name changes.
It is theoretically possible to add all the new ships, but you'd have to do that for yourself.

I do have to wonder why you'd want to though. We're moving forward and not looking back! Build 14 Beta 4 is coming and it is going to be EPIC. By far the best version we've ever released.
The internal version is already available here: Piratesahoy.net

It contains, of course, many new changes and is almost like a new game. You CAN choose your starting ship though, so if you want the stock game one, you can still get that.

The changed island names are there to stay though. That's what they're named in the real Caribbean, after all. ;-)

Thanks for the fast response (and sorry for my late one).
The reason I wanted only the weapons, is bc I have played this game alot since I was little, and now it's hard to deal if something changes because I like the way the game works. I tried the mod and it looks really good tho, so you should definetly keep going that way!

I downloaded the original game, extracted it in a folder outside Program files and put the b14_beta3_full map in the folder which also contains the origional game, but when I try to use this installer and try to install the game, it says that I have to put the 'b14_beta3_full.potc' map in the folder, which I've already done.

Just to make sure, you might want to try this: Moddb.com
If it does work with that, for some reason the game is not running from your NVidia GFX card.
