Question about Bethesda Softworks Pirates of the Caribbean
Hey there. I'm hoping that you help me with this.
I just bought this new game, Pirates Of The Caribbean. The downloading process can run smoothly, but every time when I tried launching a New Game, the whole game keeps shutting down itself. Please help me. I really want to play this game. Thanks a lot!
Your computer probably cant run the game, check your graphics card, RAM, and processor speed, make sure it meets the requirements for the game or exceeds them, if one is below, the game will most likely not work

I also had serious problems with this game, but finally in my case a simple software, called SwiftShader2.0 solved it! I'm not sure, if this works in your case, but you should give it a try!
Recently I also had a problem with this game. Every time i tryed to start a new game, an error occured, stating, that the engine.exe stopped, and the program exited. After spening all night researching on this topic, i found the solution: you should install SwiftShader 2.0. It is a simple and great program (as far as i know the biggest advantage of this software to get the game work on an Intel Onboard Graphics card, on which otherwise it wouldn't run.)
You can download it from here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/new-horizons/downloads/swiftshader-v20-demo
Having downloaded, sipmply install it to the root folder of the game (in my case it is C:\Program files\Bethesda Softworks\Pirates of the Caribbean)
Note that, there is a "Config" file in this root folder, and using that you can make the graphical settings of the game (resolution, set it to full screen mode, etc.). For some reasons this didn't want to work in my case, but there is an other way of doing these settings: in this root folder you can also find an "engine.ini" file, which can be opened as a .txt file. If opened as .txt, than you can rewrite the data in it in order to make the desired changes (for examlpe you should rewrite "full_screen = 0" to "full_screen = 1", to activate full screen mode. You cn also chage the graphical resolution of the game this way.)
If necessary you can easily reinstall SwiftShader2.0, using its reinstall icon, that can be found in the same folder, in which it was installed.
The link i have given to download SwiftShader2.0 is reliable, it is originally a created for "New Horison", which is a promising mode for Pirates of the Caribbean. You can also download this full mode, and install it containing SwiftShader2.0. This mode contains much more adventure -for example you can choose from about 7 very different charachters to play with! But personally i decided to play without whis mode, because in my system it wasn't performing well.
I hope, this will solve your problems too. /Sorry for spelling mistakes/
