I need some help...

I just download the free version of PoTCO and after the game loads, It shows a pier with 4 create character tabs. when i click the top one to create my character, it takes me to another load screen. Half-way through the load it jumps to Jail and there I am, with a character I didnt create in a jail cell and it says above him (incomplete lvl1). there is no way to open the door to the cell and no npc to talk to to get things going. What am i supposed to do? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Must be a bug if Captain Jack Sparrow did not introduce himself. Cinematic should have played and then he takes you through it on how to customize your pirate. You will need to submit a bug report using the official site's link:
http://piratesonline.go.com/v3/#/help/feedback.html

Follow instructions on how to submit your game logs. They are found wherever the game has been installed on your computer's hard drive. Very important that you do this because it might happen again.

After you do, and hopefully you did, you can either wait for them to reply and follow their instruction, or launch the game again and when you see your pirate, go to the bottom of the screen and click on that skull icon to the left of the Play button. Delete the pirate, quit the game just in case [please follow this], close that launcher. After one minute, open the launcher [its the first window panel that pops up after you start the game], at the bottom of the launcher, click Graphics Option and select Direct x9. Then click Continue. Type in your password and click Play to launch the game.

Assuming your pirate has been deleted and you see that you can create four pirates, proceed with creating your first pirate. Wait for it to load and when Captain Jack Sparrow appears mate, it should work fine. And welcome to the Caribbean!

Thanks for the info, I submitted my log info to Disney and now I'm just waiting on a response. Hopefully we can get this fixed so I can start playing soon.

This happened to me too O_o
To fix this, you have to glitch out of the jail cell near where the bench is, and then open the tutorial door. Now once you do this, it will crash your game and reset your character so you can play normally. Hope this helps.

Just log out, delete the character, and start over.
