Pirates of the Caribbean problems with ENGINE.exe: In my case a simple software, called SwiftShader2.0 solved it!!!

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 it changes the graphical performance, in order to get the game work).

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.)

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. /Soory for spelling mistakes/

How long have you owned the game? Have you ever had it working? First thing to try and do would be to uninstall and reinstall the game. If the problem persists then I would also try and update your video card driver, also make sure your directx drivers are up to date as well as windows.
Thank you,
Lee

SOURCE: i have engine.exe error when

Hello Etto!

Recently i had the same problem with this game. However, in my case i finally managed to solve it! 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: swich off Intel on board graphic card. This way the game used my AMD Radeon video vard without any problems.
Second: Use a software, called SwiftShader2.0, which can make the game use the Intel on board graphic card without any problems.

You can download SwiftShader2.0 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)

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 originally a created for "New Horison", which is a promising mode for Pirates of the Caribbean. You can also download the full mode, and install it containing SwiftShader2.0. This may also solve your problems, because as far as i know the developpers of this mode made it work on modern systems. What is more, 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, and anyway, i wanted to play with the original game.

I hope, this will solve your problems. /Sorry for spelling mistakes/

I have windows 7, and I want to install my Age of Pirates-Caribbean Tales, but every time it tells me that I need administrative rights, and when I get past that, my computer restarts and a message tells...


It sounds like your copy of Windows has been corrupted. If you have restore points already setup on your computer, you should try rolling back your PC to the day prior to the first attempt to install the game. It's possible that a recent windows update could have caused this, or a virus has infected your system. After you restore your system, that you first ensure your anti-malware and firewall software is up to date and complete a full scan. Then change your user settings so that you are the administrator (it's not recommended, but it is an option). Alternatively, you can right click the exe file that loads the installer, and choose run as administrator. That makes an exception for that one application, instead of blanket coverage for all activities on your PC.

I keep getting an error in sea.dll in pirates of the carribean pc game


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: http://www.moddb.com/mods/new-horizons/downloads/swiftshader-v20-demo
If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask. Good luck!
