Snail's Paced Sailing...

Does anyone else have a new problem--when you're sailing, you barely move? I used to go nice and speedily...a comfortable pace. Now it's like I'm in super thick molasses--hardly getting anywhere!

since the maintenance a lot of users can't logging, I get microsoft error all the time, and those who can log in get this, half ships, no map, etc...

It makes me think they built the game for a super high end computer, and said "OK, now let's just work backwards". How can they add an update that is worse than what they had?

I have the top 1/2 of my ship. I call it Stelth Mode. The navy ships don't seem to see me as well. But I did battle one all the way from the other side of the prison at Port Royal, and they were in the harbor.

Oh, I forgot... shift+w worked on my ship for a while... Now it just works for swimming... The first few times I couldn't stop...

No more rainbow stripes on the ship, just some oe the towns people...

Back to my rant... I wonder if the Deve's are just getting back at Disney for making them take all the glitches out of Toon Town, and making it no fun what so ever. They have been getting paid for something like 2 years for this project.

Hahaha...yes, very buggy indeed. I'm just happy to be a tester--it's my first time testing any games! It does get frustrating, but to me it's better than not being able to play at all.

seems no one answered this. Yes I have the same problem. It looks like the ship is not moving at all, but the islands get closer. Strange bug

I've had the same problem. I use the Shift-W as autopilot now. The problem is that since there's no wake, when I turn it off, I never know whether I'm moving forward or not. I end up having to turn on the map just to double check that I'm still moving.

But I've also had the other problem. My frigate looks like it's half there and the broadsides don't seem to be working or at least hitting anything. But at least I can still log on, unlike some friends.

I have all of those bugs, as well. Ship is half there, broadsides shoot up in the air and many others.

Have you guys tried creating a new pirate and see if those bugs are still there?
A lot of persons pirates have problems, like logging in. They made big changes in the latest pirates_1_0_8_0 release. Some of the graphics have been changed, like for the sea.

They might tell us to create new pirates. Have to wait and see what they latest release notes says, when the publish it.

Thanks for answering, guys! Dumb question, perhaps--what's this Shift-W??? Autopilot?? How did you learn this? Is there actually a guide out there somewhere of which I am unaware?

When you open the game check the list with updates.

May 11, 2007 [pirates_1_0_7_0]

* Auto-sail and auto-run have been added. Press Shift-W to enable.

I noticed I was sailing slowly as well.... and then my boat disappeared and I was swimming halfway between Port Royal and Devil's Anvil. AND I wasn't getting anywhere when I was swimming. That sucked.

Another player's boat came up to me to see if I could board (I couldn't) and I could only see the inner structures of his boat.

Weird!
