Just after the French attack and take over Oxbay, I go to Redmond, sell some stuff, repair my ship, buy some stuff to sell and head to Oxbay to spy on the French. However, when I sail towards Oxbay the game crashes when I get too close. I tried playing again from another safe but this did not help. There are people that have simular problems on the forums spread from 2005 to present. Would anyone know what causes this bug and how to solve it most effectively? I am using just the base game, ran as administrator on compatibility mode Windows 98/ME to get rid of the slow menu scrolling glitch.
