    Do you have an Intel graphics chipset?

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:
If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask. Good luck!

    Could u tell me where to install the Swiftshader and what modifications to do??

  • Peter Wharton Sep 16, 2010

    Hello rvartak132

    1. After downloading SwiftShader, extract the contents into a temporary folder.

    2. Copy d3d8.dll, d3d9.dll and swiftshader.ini from the temporary folder into the folder where the game's executables are located.

    3. Open up swiftshader.ini with notepad or wordpad, and edit the options as needed. Here is a rundown of what options are there:

    PixelShaderVersion=21 >> - defines maximum pixel shader version, e.g. 21 = 2.1, 20 = 2.0, 10 = 1.0
    VertexShaderVersion=21 >> - defines maximum vertex shader version, e.g. 21 = 2.1, 20 = 2.0, 10 = 1.0
    TextureMemory=512 >> - defines texture memory, if games run too slow, try changing to 1024 (only if you have 1GB of RAM)

    VertexRoutineCacheSize=1024 >> - don't touch
    PixelRoutineCacheSize=1024 >> - don't touch
    SetupRoutineCacheSize=1024 >> - don't touch
    VertexCacheSize=64 >> - if games run too slow, change it to 128, any higher will make the game even slower

    TextureSampleQuality=1 >> - don't touch it, lowering sample quality will not improve performance
    MipmapQuality=0 >> - defaults is 0, so don't touch
    PerspectiveQuality=2 >> - don't touch
    TranscendentalPrecision=2 >> - don't touch

    ThreadCount=0 >> - change to 2 if you have dual core, 4 for quad core, or leave it at 0 for single core CPUs
    EnableSSE2=1 >> - 0 = disabled, 1 = enabled, leave it enabled
    EnableSSE3=1 >> - 0 = disabled, 1 = enabled, leave it enabled
    EnableSSSE3=1 >> - 0 = disabled, 1 = enabled, leave it enabled

    I can't tell you the exact settings, as I don't know the specifications of your computer. Try out different settings and try to fine tune it so the game runs as smoothly as possible.

    If you're still having difficulties, let me know and I'll try to help further. Good luck!

Hello there!
I also needed to install SwifShader in order to get Pirates of the Caribbean work. However, i made same setting on other ways: first of all, there is SwiftShader2.0 avilable now (for some reasnos it said that it is a "demo", but it works well). You can download it from:

Than you must 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 can also chage the graphical resolution of the game this way.)

Hope works! :-) /Sorry for spelling mistakes!/

Mass effect loads but won't play displays missing required file "ssleay32.dll".

If you have gotten the game from The Pirate Bay, then no one is going to help you, if you have gotten it legally, then try running it with compatibilty settings or reinstalling it.

This is mostly caused by an error occurring when you installed the game. I would suggest uninstalling the game, cleaning your registry with a program called "CCleaner" and then reinstalling the game. (Pro Tip: Buy games, don't pirate them.)
