Greetings ALexus, please send me txt files so i could translate them into english
this is my e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks ALexusB, i've got it. sorry for the mistake in Your nick i was suffering from the giant hangover
Install game (I didn't write manual for english yet ) and you'll chek your (and others) translation
Please take korsary.zip from ahoy - it's an old version but most work had done.
I sent you newest text from my current dev. ver.
Please, post here your files to chek it by english speaker gamers
for version 0.9.1222
I have a lot of time, so I can help too... My e-mail is in my profile, as is my MSN address.
That was me, sorry...
I have a few questions about some words in russian interface texts where i can't find any point for.
What does it mean in english(or german ):
- Как только я это сделаю, губернатор отвалит мне за это немного бабок.
Thanks in advance.
- As soon as I complete/finish it, governor throws in/presents me some coins (kind of hard to translate - it's russian slang )
- A whore/bitch
Thanks for the fast reply!
I hope there isn't to much slang because i've no chance to find such words in my dictionary. And Babelfish has its own grade of translation.
Na schaun mir ma!
Hi. I have a last question before i can finish the Interfacefiles.
What does it mean: через зяпятую без пробелов
When this is finished, maybe i can load the files up to the PA-ftp server for correction.
Please, can you send some further files to my email adress?
This means: comma-separated, without spaces. Like: foo,bar,baz.
Thanks Gray! Very kind!
I've got a problem. If i speak to the "Architekt" he asks if i have some matter with him and the only answer i can give is about nothing important.
But i know, that i may hire him to build new colonys for me.
May it be, that the reason for this is, that i've got a patent from english mayor?
How to found gold in this addon?
I do not succeed!
You should have positive reputation - architect just doesn't work for 'evil' guys
At begin, while you don't have any ships, you can kill brigands in jungle or skeletons in caves, loot them and sell stuff. Or you can borrow some coins from a local money-lender, buy the cheapest boat (it costs like 500 gold, iirc) and solve simple quests which don't require decent ships (passenger/gold delivery, escorting merchant ships, etc).
After you've bought a 6th class ship, you can start to trade. First learn some basic concept of prices system in the world, then just buy everything low, and sell it high. Get enough money to buy a 5th class ship - and then piracy is easy! Once you become an experienced player, you can start piracy even having just 6th class ship, though.
I'm "Horor of the high Seas". That's it.
But i've done my reputation so bad to be able to hire one of the nice girls. And if i'm a good guy she will leave me and never return. Ahhhh.
np Well, it's a simple rule: you can't have all the bonuses at the same time
I know, in a version that i've played end of last year, their was Lisa Drake in Nevis the girl for good guys. That would be the girl i prefer.
May it be that they get random reputation?
I have installed the A&M addon as descripted by mawricus in another topic (using the 8 russian files plus the fonts) and I added the files translation I have found in piratesahoy ftp server.
I do not speak any russian and I am playing the game since 2 days. I didn't manage to raise the sum needed to buy a ship (cheapest ship is up to 3800 gold).
It is practically impossible (maybe only for me) to fight the brigands in jungle since they are 4 in a very open space and I manage to kill the skeletons in the cave (first part) but I do not understant how to loot them. When I kill a skeleton nothing is added to my inventory.
Can anyboby give me a hint how to loot brigands and skeletons, and if I can find any more files translated in english?
If you want to loot somebody you should press "1" or "Enter/loot", when you stand over the killed enemy.
To loot corpses you must use button '1',(in ver >= 1.05.0125).
Or - Enter->select icon "Hand". - this is the only variant in versions lower than 1.05.0125
ups... : I writed that offline and mawricus did than already
AND SO I have some advise for you about looting :
when corpses will be the only thing you'll see around, try to loot them by standing above the lower half (legs), use small steps to move around, and you may loot them all (or you may not )
Thanks mawricus and Void, I will try that.
"See" you probably tomorrow.
Thanks again ...
Another question. I've read in "alexusb_list.htm" point 115, that their is a guy to find who can make my ships nicer, better, faster. Who is that guy and where may i find him?
The guy is AlexusB himself Yes, he lives in Caribbean basin as well! At Martiniqua, to be exact - there is a semi-hidden passage in the cliff at FdF port.
Arrrrr! Thanks, Gray!
I think i know that place where you mean.
I managed to capture a Man 'O War and two Battleships and I attacked Venezouela's Fort which was under Spain's control.
I did it well at the Fort and I was supprised that the prise was only cannon balls, food, etc. Then I decided to enter the town and when all soldiers were dead, I went to the Governor/Mayor Residence. Since I don't speak any russian, I spoke to him and I had chosen to use always the first choice of the dialogue as to answer. Then the Governor/Mayor ended to prison and there is nobody at the town. No price, no nothing.
What should I do in order to assign an other governor or to win some money ?
You have decided to leave a colony to yourself, on it in the beginning in it nobody will be. You can appoint the officer the governor
Before you attack the fort, you could speak with citizens. If you ask them about the town, they could give you some information about gold or silver, wich is in the fort. After that, if you attack the fort, you will really find this gold.
When you speak with the Mayor, after capturing the fort, you have two choises in the dialogue.
1. Yo can send the mayor to prison and appoint a new mayor from one of your officiers. Then the town became yours.
2. You can demand a ransom for the town. But after the mayor paid it, you must leave the town.
Thanks alot Ekli and mawricus
I am back home and since the kids will go to bed, dady is going to play !!!
Thanks again ...
Hi guys ,
I am playing long time and I think I have the money (12.000.000 gold) to start my own colony. Is it possible to someone to tell me, where can I find the architect and what should I tell him?
The architects you can find in taverns on the arhipelago. There are 3 or 4 architects. You can speak with an architect and choose always the first choise in the dialogue. For the first step of construction, you should pay 200.000-400.000. The architect will tell you about two isles: Caiman and Terks. You must sail to one of this isles and go on land on one of the bays. There is only one bay on some isle, where you can found your colony. If you are on the right place, the architect will inform you. After you have found the place for the town, the architect will say, what material he need. You must bring construction materials, slaves and foot for them. After 60-90 days (depends on the architect) your first town is ready. But this is a small village. Next you can upgrade your town to a big city in three, four steps. The Architect you can find in the tavern of yur town. In your new town, you must appoint the mayor and the fort commander from your officiers. You must speak with them in your town. By speaking with the mayor, you can hire the tavernkeeper, the merchant and so, but you should wait for a time, till the tavern and the shop opens.
Благодарит камрада mawricus !!!
I will try to find an architect and to build a colony ...
Thanks again ...
HI пираты, (Hi pirates) !!!
I finally managed to construct my own colony and to assign the Mayor and the Fort Officer(???). I am at the final upgrade phase.
Where can I find the Fort Officer ?
I think I manage to collect some money from the Mayor from time to time. Is that all I can do? Can I repair my ships for free ? or to have supplies for free?
Can I appoint ships to keep safe the harbor and how?
As you can see "just a few questions"
Благодарит вас заранее (Thanks all of you in advance )
Thanks Kukurusina. I am going to develop the next cologny ...
I am playing the game for at least three months now (ver 1.05.0222), and I do not use any translated files. The status of my game is: hero has all the abilities at level 10, money is around 12.000.000 gold, and one own cologny.
I remember, I have seen in some translated files about 4 categories of armor, 3 categories of maps, weapons etc. The strange thing is that only some days ago I found the musketon gun. My questions are the following:
1. There is any "gold" armor?
2. There is any "extraordinary" map?
3. What is the best sword?
4. What is the best gun?
5. If the answer is yes, how and when can I find/purchase them? Maybe the possibility of how rare items are is to small?
6. I have a treasure map of the Turks Island (not different from the map I bought from a merchant). What type of treasure should I expect?
1. In some treasure box in the dungeon (buy treasure map in tavern) It's generator, so you'll need find it. Or in quest by Gregor Samsa (from San Juan port, but he needs ratsGod)
2. in treasure
3. in treasure (or by quest Gregor Samsa)
4. shotgun (find Idol in treasure and open portal in Inks Temple)
5. Rare is present so you'll need fine part of treasure map in one of the treasure from tavern map
6. 1-5 or junk and other funny staf.. or pot of gold and diamonds
So - treasure, treasure, treasure
And ratsGod helps you minimaze rats on your ship
i have some questions
1. How much the good and bad things have a influence to the officers loyality.
So far i noticed - dealing the captured capitains - much , but helping or not helping
damsel in distress in jungle - all most nothing.
2. Why a good female officer ( Danka from Curacao) is weaker then 2 bad once.
3. Alternative fencing - what the diffrences. maybe link to discussion .
Sorry about my englich - i know , its sucks
Thank you Gray for information and link - i can read a russian( a bit)
I have a prob with quest, where i have 8 days to kill some bandits, i dont get it, i have killed alot of bandits, but that governer still not giving me that 2500gold.
i think i know what the problem is: before killing the bandits you should tell them? that island authorities had send you to deal with crime elements in that area? an ONLY after that you can kill 'em
if you killed them without chat, the governer wont think you've finished the quets
if you killed them without chat, the governer wont think you've finished the quets
Yes, it looks like
"Я здесь по приказу властей. Немедлено прекратите беззаконие!"
Perhaps you should hire an officers. Is new fencing enabled? Try to set it off. On wich level you play?
what? changing dif level is working properly...but there is one thing,after changing the level you MUST start a new game, or it wont work
i think you should change a tactics - IMHO the best way to deak with bandits is a shoot and run tactics, not all of them have guns, so with a number of medicits you can manage it
And change the game speed - its help a lot
i have a problem.
Played a version 1.05.0222. - all was fine (some minor craches, but like you russians
say - ne smertelno)
Now i downloaded version 1.05.0402. and have my first problem. All NPC in Pirate Fort
on Curacao a hostile.
You must start new game
any updates - start new game
It was a new game.
But i find out that was my problem (after replaying situation) Sometimes a NPC-s in
Pirate fort a hostile if you have a fight in location before a fort and then entering. In my
case the bandits pusched my to the pirate fort location during the fight. Tottaly my
mistake, sorry for a previuos post.
BTW: new cabin - great work
Real Life kept me away from playing for a month or so.
This and next week we have holidays because of the Orthodox Easter, so I tried to tranlate some text concerning missions you can get from a Mayor or a store owner.
When a store owner gives me a mission he asks me to transport a cargo to an other store owner and he gives me his name (not the town).
Does somebody have a list with the names of the store owners, shipyard owners,
priests, etc per town ? Because I traveled all over the towns several times and I never thought to keep names.
P.S. If somebody has the above info, I will be very obliged if he could send me a file saved using an enconding of Unicode (not ASCI)
all info is collected in questbook/other buisines/store tasks
Info about destination of cargo is present in dialog too, just read it carefull
Version 1.05.0402. If nation attacks and takes colonie - you lose all your money
in loan-shark office. How about ships on hold? If not, maybe in future version .....
it will be too victious
Thanks for your replay. Now I followed your advice and the information concerning the place to deliver the cargo, in two different missions, is the following:
- в магазин буканьеров Hispaniolla
- в магазин Дес Мойнес
The translation I get from several on-line translation tools (BabelFish) is the follwing:
- In the store of bukanterov Hispaniolla
- In the store of des Of moynes
Now, in the first mission I visited the island which has three location and I didn't managed to find to which store I should deliver the cargo.
In the second case, I visited (I think) all the stores but I haven't found any store owner called "des Of moynes"
My russian is zero and I don't have any other russian speaking friend to ask...
Thanks again ...
first place is store on Hispaniolla in pirates fort. The second one is town on Martinika without Port. Des Moines. Try to write down russian name of destination and search the similar title
Я много благодарю. Я желаю хороший easter в вас...
version 1.05.0406. The problem is in the randomly generated pirate quest. After the main character has talked to the pirate then the quest should begin but the all the four ship slots are ocupied. I wanted to refuse the quest but he told me to fuck off. Now the pirate is still on that location and after i have killed him over and over again that fucker is still there. In the quest book
I am back from vacation. Many thanks incus yuor list is more than helpfull.
Many thanks again.
How to play card game in the tavern? I don't speak russian and I don't know what is on the cards
Gray, there is the different between Black Jack and 21.
1. In 'BJ' jack, queen and king give 10 points, and in '21' Jack gives you 2 points, queen - 3 points, king - 4.
2. 2 aces is 22 in addon, but really they must give a winning, as I know.
Thank, now I can play at this game
I bought a ship but this ship substract 4 to all my capacities! Is that normal ?
do I have a special capacity for this ship ? This ship is a class 3

Yes. You can find it in treasures by pices map
it can be found on enemies corpses but this rare is too small
But never in ships chests
new question. Cant hire a Jack Sparrow in Santo Domingo prison.( mol, ne srabotajemsja) Is he in this version a good boy now. My reputation is Groza Morei.

glotka djavola. After finding a treasure, i take church quest.
Result - skeletons and treasure hunters in same location. Officers go to kill
skeletons, main hero and treasure hunters just stand,dont move and talk.
The strange thing is in journal - the skeletons must be on Antiqua.
I have a question,
I found a sientific on an english isle (ennemy) in the tavern. I payed him 125000 gold and he is now a passenger. But I can't use him as an officer and I have lost 125000 gold. Is that a trap ?

The addon is very great !! And the new cabin are very nice !

Greetings to all here.
I've just come over from the Pirates Ahoy site to find out a little more about translating your excellent mod into English.
The second cave on Nevis (Logovo satanistov - clone) is closed. New quest?
No- remove your veapons from the hands.
If main hero dont have enough navy skill for sailing for some class, he get minuses in skills and characteristics. In skills the main hero have items ( + to skills). How about
characteristics? Is there a possibility to compensate minuses ,even temporary,
for some time? (not constantly )I ask this because i notice in russian side of forum
a suggestion about illnesses ( more minuses in future - i presume )
One more thing - about islands maps - how many players buy and use them - after
long play, then all islands a quite familiar . So i have a little suggestion ( i dont
know can this be done or not) - how about hideing one treasure map among the
normal island maps - looks like normal map( in shop) - can be activated by takeing and only once like idol, very rare.
Sorry about my english.
How do edit posts. Last one goes wrong. Quest and errors
You need to be registred to use edit function
Thanks Alexus and Bullet
About characteristics points - which is the maximum possible ammount for officers( for hire) and over NPC-s - 70 points?
32. Если брать пленных матросов в команду, а места нет, то остаток будет на корабле противника.
I understand this thing dont work in difficulty sailor (matros)?
32. When you are taking abord ship crew to you crew the rest of them will be on ship if your number limit is over.
Before ver 1002 this rest was deleted
Thanks for information - Alexus, Strelok and Bullet
How the treasure generator works in this version?
After 3,5 year treasure hunt( in game) and lots of maps - i have 14 mustetoons and 8
golden body armors (second level maps). no swords,sculls, rat gods or over + items Its starts to get a little boring.
And i dont use S/L to get wanted item.
I've got a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with.
Firstly, is there a manual for the new version of the mod? My understanding of Russian is minimal so I'm eagerly awaiting the English translation of the mod. So far I've managed to get by quite well and have been helped by my translated version of the old manual. Now obviously many things have changed so I'm wondering if there is an updated version of the manual as well? Even if it's in Russian I can translate.
Secondly, is there long term injury for your character and if so how do you fully recuperate if at all? I've noticed that after a lot of personal combat, having taken many hits which have been restored by health potions, the health bar on my character screen (the red heart) sometimes diminishes and that I can restore this to some extent by resting and sleeping it off at a tavern. However, it doesn't seem to fully restore. I've noticed that originally this health bar description was "Splendid" and more recently "Good". Sometimes it would drop to "Middle" after I'd done a lot of fighting and taken alot of hits, however resting at a tavern would restore it to some extent. Now I can't seem to raise it out of "Middle" again, no matter how much I rest. Is this pemanent health damage or is there something else I need to be doing?
Many thanks in anticipation for any help.
I would correct my "brother in arms":
If the health description word is written by gold letters, then your “duty” is to visit a priest. It’s quite expensive and doesn’t bring dramatical improvement.
In addition, if your hero regularly suffers with a serious damage, it results losses of health-points forever. Then neither priests, nor relaxing in a tavern will restore hero’s “virgin conditions”…
Regarding the manual… Unfortunately (fortunately? ) we have no this even in Russian. The only thing is FAQ. AlexusB announces all innovations of the new version in «Анонсы нового» topic. So you can find them there and try to translate.
Many thanks to you both, bullet and delfin.
That's a great help. My understanding of the game takes another step forward.
A case of rum to you both, next time we meet on the high seas.
Please, where can be this mod downloaded and exists some English version of it already?
You can download russian versian
6 files - main setup;
русские шрифты - russian fonts, without them will be no text;
There are also in addition new town models and crew for the boat. But without them you can play too.
As far as i know english version is not ready yet. Check out this topic from time to time and you will not miss it.
Hi, Smart Fox. Thank you for your help but I can´t find these files on this page. Could you help me yet a little?
Choose "Скачать!!!" in the top-menu, then click on the "Я полностью принимаю данные условия (скачать)" on the bottom of the next page, and you'll get an access to the required files...
A have all this section completely distorted what about fonts concerns on my computer . But I have downloaded already something from the past. Could you please write here what is the procedure of the installation of this Add-On ? I would tried it anyway I know a little russian from the past but I forgot many words already.
What is your current version? See the right-bottom corner of the main-menu screen
I corrected all on my computer - the coding and fonts everything is displaying correctly now. I think I have downloaded the newest version of your Add-On. But I don´t know exactly how it install into the basic game. Just now I am playing my English version with Build 12.1 and the newest Modpack. Immediately after I will play out my current game I would like to install you russian Add-On and try it. I think I will like it very much.
I see. So when you're fed up with the current game you should uninstall it firstly.
Then install the game again without any modes you have.
After that dowload files
- data1.slb 2.8 Мб
- data2.slb 68 Мб
- data_upd2.slb 14 Мб
- data_upd3.slb 1 Мб
- data3.slb 1.8 Мб
- setup.rar 0.26 Мб
and put them into one folder.
Then extract setup.rar, and run setup_addon.exe (there the installer'd like you to put the way to the folder with game. Just do it).
Probably you need also to download Russian fonts and extract them into Resource folder. File with the fonts is below above-mentioned files and named "pусские шрифты".
Then open "config" to well tune the game and save changes you made.
A little advice... Before you start the game you'd better to back up the following files:
memory.mp and options. They're quite sensitive and might be damaged, if you were in the game very long time without "coffee breaks".
PS hope, my friends correct me, if i missed smth...
Thank you very much but you didn´t name files "instal_twn.rar", "res_boat.rar" and "resource_town_c.rar" . What about these files?
Thank you very, very much. I managed to install it on my English European Add-On and it works. I am very glad. I hope it will be great experience and entertainment for me. I never hoped it would work but it works (at least so far).
Hi, all, I am a new here. Yesterday I managed to install somehow this AlexusB mod and I started to play but after I set out from Nevis to the sea and wanted to land at any other island my game crashed. I probably did some mistake in the course of my installation. When I unpacked those downloaded files data 1.slb, data2.slb, data3.slb, data_upd2.slb, data_upd3.slb and setup.rar into one directory and tried to push setup_addon.exe it doesnt work. For that reason I copy all the these upacked files into the main game and then it started work. But in the course of sailing and landing anywhere the crashes in the form of black screen appeared. Why I couldn´t perform setup_addon.exe? Is it necesary to run this exe file or is it sufficient to copy these unpacked files into one directory and after that to recopy them into basic game as I did? Please, could you advise or better could you describe all the installation more detailed for me once again? I would be very thanful.
Oh, I know it. But I have some problems on my computer with installing it because maybe of difficulties with language coding but in the end I managed it and installed it. I would like to ask yet whether these new towns and textures work well without some substantial problems and whether it is worthy to install them . Even though I am playing constantly game with Builds and Modpack this your Russian mod is a little different and my computer have some difficulties with language coding so I think from that originate some my problems with installation. So, please, be patient with me.
Follow these steps, and everything will be OK.
1) install fresh copy of POTC (for example, c:/games/POTC);
2) copy 6 files of the main setup to some directory and extract setup.rar;
3) run setup_addon.exe;
4) Choose I agree then show the path to your game (for example c:/games/POTC);
5) Press Install and wait for a while. At the end of the setup you should see the message, that everything has finished OK;
6) Run the game with the default settings.
7) Play for a while. If there will be no problems, I will say how to install new textures end models.
Game is working, I think, but when I want to install the new towns the partially unreadable table appears. So I don´t know exactly what destination directories to choose on both lines. And the same difficulties I had in the case of installation of all Add-On. You can see it isn´t too easy for me on my computer. So, could you send me this table for installation of towns yet where will be showed what should be choosed?
But first you should copy files from the archieve resource_town_c.rar to game's directory and only then run the setup.
And as bullet said yesterday, you should check the option "Дополнительные ресурсы" in the game settings.
Yes and leave the default "инсталятор" a_m_v1
And should I have to leave this directory C:\gama\seadogs2 or should I select directory with my game C:\Hry\Bethesda Softworks\Pirates of Caribbean ?
Thanks, I considered it some helping directory because in some cases is used something like that. Now I think I have everything what I have needed about the installation.
But the game seems to very difficult and I don´t know how many things should be adjusted here. Cannons shoot on very short distance and their charging take extremely long time. And is it better to leave captain difficulty or adjust the most easiest difficulty? And what are the diferences between choosing of corsair or adventurer or anything different yet? And is there any English or Russian walktrough? I know, many stupid questions but this game is completely different from Builsds versions and it is good because in is something completely for me.
Thank you. I would like to ask something. I bought a Tartanas and wanted to sail with my goods somewhere but many ships chase me and when I push the button escape from the battle, it doesn´t work. How should I resove these situations? Is there any option for adjusting?
Are you sure the button is not disabled?
Hi mates. Alexus, I am no sure of anything but I don´t know where it can be adjusted so as I could sail away instead of started the battle. I only bought a little goods and want deliver it goods to smugglers but I have no chance in those severe conditions.
All the playing seems very difficult for me. I am starting for the fourth time and I am not able proceed in the game. Every time something is wrong in my style of playing.
I would like to ask: Why I am not able to set the difficulties at sailor from captain and disable "pay for save/load"? Every time when I set it, it is reversed back to captain and enabling of this "pay fo save/load". I am already unhappy for that.
And I can´t really use the button "sail away" and can only use start battle?
And by the way what food the sailors need. I have wheat on the board but they they constantly dying from starving and amnount of wheat didn´t reduced yet.
Hi Jack and others. At last I somehow established myself in the game as Jack Sparrow. These parameters of the game can´t be even exchange even if you start new game for the second time, but I stored my important files before first playing, so I exchanged them and only then I could exchange these two parameters in the game. This game is really completely different from Builds versions but it it looks very professionally. I think I will like it but I have to become used to it. What hero do you play? I started as Sparrow and then Will Turner but in the end the game with Sparrow hero as corsair seemed to me easier for starting the game. I must only learn how to play this Add-On and everything will be good. I like all these maps. And did you registered Jack how for example is Hispniola large? I almost got lost in the jungle.
Try to explore Cuba - the place is used to be lost to anyone
Glad I had a map for Hispaniola. Haven't tried Cuba yet
Something happened with my game and I can´t to land at any coast when I am on the map. The button stop working and I don´t know what to do with it. Can you help me?
I had to reinstall all the game and I am playing new game again.
Hi Strelok. The reason lies in anything else. I am a regular player of PoTC and Builds so I know how the game should work and be played. But my game became broken somehow. I reinstalled it and everything is OK again. But it seems to me this Add-On is a little unstable and quite vulnerable , at least at my computer.
Hi, Strelok. I did it. But in the course of my so far short playing unfortunately I had to do several times already.
Hi, Strelok. Thank you for your help, I appreciate it very much. I resolved this my problem with reinstalling of the game and it works well again. It isn´t so difficult matter if I know now how to do it.
Hey I dunno if this is a bug or just a skill/rep deficiency, but I can't hire new officers anymore. The limit seems to be lower than in the standard game, which I can live with; but even now when some spaces are freed up (by my officers meeting unfortunate fates) I can't hire anyone new. I always end up telling them I have a full complement (полный комплемент), even though I'm down to only two officers in my ranks. Помогите!
Is it possible to hire some of the captured enemy captains? So far I keep holding them for ransom, but it causes a dramatic fall of my reputation...
Yes, you can hire captured captains as your officers. You need to talk with them
But only pirates captans will be hired
The other must be sold to major of any town
Hey AlexusB, your game(addon) rocks!!! I need your help with one thing. Can you publish FILOSOF's skills and
and abillities. Thanks for your attention.
No need in this- Filosof is very skilled companion
He is very powerful. If you want to try to kill him, you must forget about this idea.
I`ve got a bug near the end of the Spanish patent quest. Where I`m supposed to talk to one of the sailors on a shore at Curasao, there are two Spaniards in armour, but the one standing in the water won`t bring up a dialog and the other gives me an error message, that his dialog file (there is no name, the one he cites is just a blank space) cannot be found.
(This is Alan_Smithee by the way; I also posted this question in the SLiB topic at the PA forums)
Thank you. We will check it.
Do you have a save vith it? This will help. If you have, send it please to email@example.com , or make attach here in rar or zip archive.
i'll make a save when i'm right at that beach and send that to you, thanks.
when do you think the next update might be ready, with the fix to slow loading?
I do not receive your save- sorry
I check this problem myself- and not find any bags. The soldier in the water approve to me and start his dialog. The second soldier gives error message- but it is normal. He is simple actor, without his dialog.
I need your save in the shore, and previous too. Try to attach it here.
oh sorry, haven't done that yet... i started a couple new games with different characters and forgot about my old game; the loading times had gotten hideous anyway, after five years in-game.
In previous version treasure stays in cave one full day - 24 hours - in this version treasure stays longer.
I noticed 6 days minimum. What is the max time? (03.09.1665 Terks one treasure - crap; 09.09.1665
Terks - 2 treasures - old one and new one)
2. In one location - after killing last hostile all fight starts over. Feature? Bug? E-E? Prikol?
Tresure stays 1 day minimum. It means it can be taken for 1d in all cases. But later work usual method to fill box (1-9 days to refresh)
Or don't stay there at midnight. At midnight they awake
Thanks AlexusB, Xitriy lis and Delamer.
Now I have question about Ascold quest - second part - 3 items.
I know how looks red-gold mask and ritual cup, but can somebody tell me how the
sceptre looks like?
It looks like golden chess figure.
Named "Скипетр жреца" or "A priest's scepter"
Why Main Hero can take sword out in Fort Orange tavern? Is this location part of some quest?
I got a really weird glitch: While sailing in map mode, time is sped up to a crazy degree. This is in normal time mode (and slowing it down a bit doesn't help), and my ship still sails at a normal speed, but the days pass at about one per second, meaning my crew gobble up all their food almost immediately then promptly start dying. I lost 320 crewmen just sailing between Port Royal and Caiman. It started the first time I returned to map mode just after being in a raging storm.
... probably a glitch, but is this some secret curse related to some item? The only unusual items I have are the blue skull and the idol of protection. Thx.
Time in worldmap mode goes by speed depends of your ships speed (% of sails and low ship in escadr)
If you have got slow speed ship or 0% of sails, you shoud have fast day past.
ah, i see. crazy. i didn't enter map mode again after getting my ship fixed to see if it was still a problem or not...
Ascold quest. Isla de Muerto - manowars. What a miracle cannons??? Game setting -cannons non-linear,but
thise MOW -s shooting 32 F Cu. 700 y easaly????? And speed?? Thise black MOW-s have diesel engines???
I am now downloading the new town resources and I wonder is it necessary to start a new game the changes to take effect or not?
Yes. It is necessary to start a new game.
Before set new town ON in options form
I have a problem... yesterday I downloaded the last update of the add-on and new town resources. I started a new game after deleting all old savegames, changing all game parameters, controls, etc. and at the beginning I realised that all textures of the buildings (pirate, started on Nevis) are grey!!!???
attached is a printscreen
Do you have manualy installed all resourses from .rar (23Mb)?
Or just run .exe?
New_towns is old install format. Must be set and unpack manualy
@ I manually unpacked "resources_town_c.rar" in /RESOURCES/TEXTURES@
it is incorrect
Need to unpacking it in the game root folder
How big advantage have a MOW-s (ascold quest) before gappling? Or is it a big secret?
Been enjoying the latest update. Level 37 already, I got both uninhabited islands colonized... but even with the Black Shark with augmented crew (nearly 1000 dudes) with heroic morale, not even a level 6 yacht with its crew reduced to, like, 2 dudes will surrender to me. Quite the opposite - they manage to kill half my crew between the two of them. Amazing. Is this a new "feature" of the update, that no one will ever surrender to you?
Also, I've noticed a couple quests I never saw before - Cortez' skeleton in the lost fort on IdM and the shopkeep's request for "mummy powder." The former opens a new quest entry, but is it really a quest? and is there really any mummy powder to be had anywhere in the archipelago? half the sreet merchants refuse to deal with me I've asked them so often...
[quote name='Alan_Smithee' date='Feb 16 2006, 15:51' post='94429']
, but is it really a quest? quote]
Yes, really. Cortez from Black Pearl quest (old),"mummy pouder" from Ascold's quest (new), but entry in Ascold's quest on Nevis
mmk, thanks, I'll keep asking the street merchants...
is the black pearl quest related to the incan temple at all? i see i still need some quest item to get into the alcove; is the item still available anywhere?
and I am a geroi. i've had only two ships surrender to me, a couple galleons...
speaking of treasure, are the golden cuirass and killidge sword available in the regular treasure or only the samsa's treasure quest? i was disappointed by what i finally got for my trouble there, just a handful of gold nuggets and jewels but no good items.
Killdge available only in Samsa quest, but golden cuirass can be found in various places: treasures, English quest line etc
After visiting Morgans secretary i got a little idea. How about adding a NPC who change rare items.(no sell)
Right now i have lot of fine maps, Tanats, golden armors and blue skulls, but dont have killadge do hire
filosof. Even S/L magic dont work.
Yep that's my problem... there was no killidge in the chest for the Samsa treasure, or pink skull or golden cuirass.
2 Alan_Smithee It means that you've lost too much time after battle with the Black Shark!!! You have only 10 days to get to treasure, or else it transformates in to gems & rings rendomly.
Anyhow you won't find killidge there , its musketon (rifle), pink skull & golden cuirass.
Today i read about announce - SLB goes to Corsaires 3. (russian forum).
I can read a russian a bit, but not perfectly well, so i need to ask - The new SLB will be a new game (based on storm 2.5 engine, no need for Corsaires 3, AOP) or it will be add-on to the main game (corsaires 3 needed)
And i thankful for great game and accept my best wishes for a new project. Sorry my englich - its sucks.
It's been allmost a year since my last post. I have installed the latest version of SLiB and I have great fun playing the game. Great job !!! Very helpfull is also the english version of faqs.
I am playing using ЪлзйД character as Adventurer and having Nevis as a homeland. Now, I am at level 34 and I am facing some small "problems":
A. When I am capturing an enemy ship I can not assign a captain for it (I have at least 3 "First Mates" as officers) and I do not know what to do.
B. When I bought a second ship, I assigned a captain but I have not found where I can exchange goods between the two ships.
If somebody can give me some help please ...
Thanks in advance ...
Sorry Strelok, I hadn't pay attention.
Thanks Navy for your help. As far as concern exchange goods between ships I am ok, but in order to assigne a captain to a captured ship I load minimum crew on captured ship and when I tried to assigne one of the "First Mates" officers the repective button it was not high-lighted. Is there a possibility that I have done something rong at the initial screen where you choose the difficulty level, Hardcore game etc?
Need some advise on what to do.
Thanks in advance
I have some questions:
I assign an officer as a captain to a captured ship. How can I assign officers as "compagnions" of the new captain?
And if I manage to assign those officers:
1. Can I hire more officers in their place?
2. Their active perks affect the abilities of the assigned captain?
And finally, reading some topics at the forum I noticed that some mates reffer to "S/L magic". What is S/L magic and how it works?
Thanks in advance for your help mates.
Thanks for your very-very fast replay.
I started a new topic by mistake and I when I was trying to add a fast reply to explain everythig were lost.
Is it possible to finish the quests:
"Таинственная история мадам" and "Сокровища Изабеллы"
in version 1.06.0124?
Thanks in advance for the responses ...
No, it is not done
I started a new game (Sailor level of difficulty) and I assigned to the main character the role of "secret agent".
As far as concern S.P.E.C.I.A.L., I made the following distribution: S=5, P=4, E=5, C=6, I=8, A=6, L=8.
My question is, shall I be able to open all personal and ship perks?
Thanks in advance for your responces.
hi all,how increase very fast my money in game start?because it tooks very long time before you get enough...,maybe there is any secrets?
You can loan some or find loot on corpse
If you have ship yet take quest to delivery cargo, merchant or passangers. And will be a real pirate - take ships.
