You laptop may need a upgrade and may not have the recommended hardware, space e.t.c. look on the back of the game box and see if your laptop meets the requirements, if not then you will need to upgrade that part in order to get the game to work.
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.
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.
