You need to run it under windows 98 compatibility mode:

To do this locate the file "privateer.exe". By default, this file is located in Program Files/Global Star/Privateers Bounty - Age of Sail 2.

- Right click on the privateer.exe and select Properties.
- Click the Compatibility tab.
- Check the Compatibility Mode box by clicking in it.
- Use the drop down menu to select Windows 98/ME.
- Click Apply, and then click OK to close the window.

Hope this helps.

Graham.

I had the same problem but I had to try compatibility mode "Windows 2000" to get it to work. Thanks so much for the solution!

Hello,

I would first make sure your system meets the minimum requirements in order to play the game properly. You can find the requirements at the link below.

If you do meet the requirements, then next I would recommend you install updated drivers for your graphics card.

If you are running Vista, before you consider downgrading to XP, find your privateer.exe file and right click it. Once the page is displayed, left click on compatibility. Then check the Run this program in compatability with... Click the button below and scroll until you find XP. Click it and then click Apply to save it. Then click ok. That should enable you to run the game on Vista. If it doesn't something is wrong with your operating system, not the computer.

All you have to do is go into properties by right clicking on the shortcut icon. Find "compatability." The problem lies in the fact that most contemporary computers are too advanced for the older game, so you have to slow the processing speed down. When you find "compatability," change it to "Windows 2000." 98 is too slow, and XP is too fast. If 2000 doesn't work, try a different operating system. The game should load now.
