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

Hello Wong!

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:

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/

    I managed to find out some other details:
    in my case, I guess, the main problem was, that the game couldn't communicate with my Intel on board graphic card, what is more, it didn't see my AMD Radeon video card. Finally i found 2 soultion:
    First soultion: swich off Intel on board graphic card. This can be done in BIOS. By switching it off and makeing the system to use the other graphic card, solved my problem.
    Second solutin: Use a software, called SwiftShader2.0, -as i said- which can make the game use the Intel on board graphic card without any problems.
    The link i have given to SwiftShader is only a demo version of this.
    Although it is only a demo, it is working without any problems -i'm not sure, fi it has any limitation, for example a trial period, or something. So if you decide to ude it, you might find it out. ---Some other info: If you have Vista:
    I have read, that somtimes Vista preforming well, only when you use it as an administrator. So before trying to do these things, chage you status to administrator.
    You could give it a try, and run the game in compatibiy modes (althuogh in my Windows 7 system, it didn't get any better by doing that). ---

    Finally, i would like to share you an other link. You would have a great use of it, after you managed to solve the problem, and play the game. This is a walkthrough of the game, helping to get the quests done. Can be extremely useful, because the game prone to contain bugs, and without this help you can't be sure, that you will be able to get throught the tasks. The link:

Hello rvartak132
I don't know why, but PotC hates the Intel chipset!
You need to download and install an application called Swiftshader. You will suffer a loss in performance, but you should still be able to run the game on lower settings.
You can download it directly from here:

Universa remote codes.

Spoke with Starlight Marketing Ltd today who represent Disney. They said there is no codes for the Disney TV's. They have been trying to find out what the code is but since it is a private brand tv it does not have a code for a different remote. As I stated we bought the Pirates of the Carribean TV/DVD. My husband was fooling around with the remote and punched in 0216 and the remote read the code. The person from Disney said we just got lucky. Said that there were no universal remotes that would work with these TV's. This code was also used by the Haier brand tv. Hope this info helps anyone with a Disney TV. If you have any questions, you could e-mail me at
