I just wanted to see if we're all not able to play on our mains, or if it's just some of us.

Are you still able to play on your main pirate?

I can still play on my main pirate, but can't do quests at all.

I can't play my first pirate - the game crashes. Neither my second nor my third pirate can enter the jungle or caves or anything, so no advancing on quests. I'm just hoping that the next "update" unlocks some of that!

Well I can still "play" the first pirate I created several weeks ago, but he's limited in what he can do, Can't complete quests, can't go into caves any longer (get the "kill a skeleton with your new sword" message, map has disappeared (just a blue field), graphics are hosed up, etc. All of this occured with release 1.0.8.0.

I started another pirate a couple of days ago, but he doesn't seem much better off. The game is definitely not ready for prime time.

Well, it just go worse. About the only thing I was able to do anymore was fight ships, and now that is kaput too. I can no longer repair my ship. This is getting rediculous, especially when you read all the glowing reports on piratesonline.com.

Sheesh.......

I can't even get to the place where I can choose my pirate, I get the "POTCO has experienced a problem and has to close, we are sorry for the inconvenience" message.

Unhappy

I still get the evil Microsoft message, too. Maybe the game caught a virus! It is strange that some people can get on, and others, like me, can not get to the pick your pirate screen at all.

So, here's the deal, I can now play my main pirate again which I haven't been able to playsince the last update. However, I can only play it on our Vista laptop. I can't play anything at all on my XP desktop, I just get the microsoft error message.

Limbo

I, too, am stuck in LIMBO.

1. Old pirate
- can't finish Quests (Greer / June's List)
- can't drop Quest either
- can't enter jungle
- can't equip Pistol

2. Old pirate
- can't finish Quests (Joshamee Gibbs / Black Pearl Crew / Doc Grog)
- can't drop Quest either
- can't enter jungle

3. New pirate - started after latest update
- can't log in. It goes to the Loading... screen, then crashes.
- I got all the way up to Joshamee Gibbs and completed the "trust" tasks (2 Navy ships, 8 Navy guards).
- I got the Black Pearl crew list task and when I went to the second step (Bonita's tattoos), it crashed.

(I actually created a new pirate and went through it all again and it crashed when I went to talk to Will Turner for daggers). My conclusion is that it doesn't like when I have too many Quests listed. It crashes on the 2nd level Quests after the Black Pearl list.

4. New pirate - started after last update
- Got all the way up to Joshamee Gibbs and Black Pearl crew list. Reluctant to select a Quest (if it crashes, I'd have to start over or have no pirate to play).
- Also, reluctant to take Will Turner's list for dagger.
- Finished finding Luther
- Finished talking to Elizabeth about teeth (Rudyard's Teeth) (Opened at Level 7?)
- Finished talking to Elizabeth about paintings (The Nine Rogues) (I think)
- Finished talking to Barbossa about other treasure page (Rhineworth Rings) (Opened at Level 12?)
- Finished talking to Sally Gold about Navy Medals treasure page (Talk to Sally Gold on Port Royal near dock (near crab))


Has anyone been able to create new pirate and get them past Will Turner's Daggers or Joshamee Gibb's Black Pearl Crew List Quests?


Peace,
evb.

Confused!

So, it looks like XP has a problem, but then some with Vista also have problems. What a mess! At least we can all stay in touch here!
