Pirates of the Caribbean engine.exe error
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/
