    Hi Nightmare,
    you are talking about Beta 4.0, so i assume you have the DL from nexus. If so, you will just have to rename the .zip to .tar. I could NOT try it because my hardware is not good enough for more than 3.4!
    Hope that helps, have fun.
    Bye

    Why do people use this Nexus thing?
    I don't even know what it is and I was the one who originally made those files! :shock

    Perhaps put the installer and archive somewhere other than the folder where you are installing the game?

    Also, forget Nexus. The best way to install the game is to get the most up to date installer, which is here:
    Mod Release - Build 14 Beta 4.1 WIP [Last Update: 31 August 2017]

    There's a link to a zip update on the same page. You'll need that as well as the main installer files. Install the basic game from CD to "D:\Games\Pirates of the Caribbean", where you're already trying to install the game. Put the Build 14 installer, archive file and zip file somewhere else, so long as they're all in the same folder as each other, then run the installer. Do not try to extract or rename the archive file! But, once the installer has finished doing its thing, you do extract the zip update into "D:\Games\Pirates of the Caribbean" - it's just a basic zip file with some corrections and additions. Keep checking that page because the zip update gets updated occasionally.

    I cant belive that non here is aware what the hugest modding site in this world is!!!

    nexusmods.com is currently "Hosting 236,677 files for 465 games from 73,369 authors serving 13,411,402 members with 2,209,874,821 downloads to date"!
    No pay site, a well behaved comunity at the forum, quality mods from astonishing skilled people! See Vilja in Skyrim or Enderal!

    I have never had any bad experience at nexus. I know your mod only from nexus. Its a friendly site for people like us (modders and users).

    @ Pieter Boelen; the uploader is a member of this site called mikeydmc and he sayes he has youre permission to upload this.

    New Horizons: New Horizons at Pirates of the Caribbean Nexus - Mods and community

    Sorry if im disturbing you but there are other gamelovers out there, the have own sites and care for eachother like you. Im member of a few sites now, comes over the years, and nexusmods is a good site for finding mods! You can become member of the specialised site if you want, there you find only mods for that game! Your Mod "New Horizons" is a one in all, so only 1 mod - install and eat or die. Other games are much more complicated to add mods, and there you will come back to nexus to find all software (expl: scriptextenter/ENB & fixes...) Tips and Tricks - all you need to mod youre games, its a good choice and i would advise it for beginners in modding (users, i guess most modders start different).

    @Grey Roger, dont forget nexusmods.com - your link is the right one for this game/your Mod, and mikeydmc has not cared for updating and following your updates, so he's to blame for spoiling this not nexusmods!

    If you dont want to have another 700 players enjoing this mod then you can report the mod.

    Sorry @Nightmare, i could not help, but for me on my old pc, i use 3.4 and have no problems since last winter, fine tuned some settings after what i have read here and no crash since last week!! as i tryed to update and it didnt work!
    Bye

    It is beginning to ring a very faint bell.
    Long time ago though; very nearly forgot.

    I'll try my worst;(grr, had to change my keyboard to make sc in windows:facepalm)

    1: download the install wizard & the old main file.
    2: check if he has renamed it to: b14_beta3_full.7z - thats what i needed to do last year (have a backup on flash drive) EDIT: Noticed he changed the describtion, maybe all is right - start it and see.
    3: Create a folder at youre desired location (mine is ...ModsWIP/PotC) outside of programs folder (essential for many mods, if not allready - DONT install steam or any modded game or tool in "programs"!!!!
    and drag the files there. Inst1.jpeg
    4: Install stock PotC and check if it works ( just start tut, jump at land for few min)
    5: Start the install.exe and choose your option. I used only widescreen texures for 16:9 display Inst2.jpeg
    6: no matter how good your PC is, get a coffee, this is huge, takes a while!:popcorn:
    7: Then you should see something like this: Inst3.jpeg

    That was all i did, if it helps you are welcome.
    I started the Game and had no unexpected problems - like all heavy modded games it runs on the edge of capability and so i save, quit and reload the game if it starts to stutter or crash. That happens very, very... rare!
    Now i have read some posts here and edited the InternalSettings.h, no crash since reinstall.
    I really hope you get this running - a top mod - in my list No: 2 (sorry pirates, but Vilja...:love) because its a all in one - and what for a one!:whipa:ship:guns:

    That would be the Vanilla Game from the CD, the basic without mod - just to check if that is installed correct.

    Hi there, glad you're in game.

    I am a user, just as you, cant say what that is - not your ship. I would recommend what I said earlier, save, quit and reload. Sometimes modded games flip a wee bit. With a big "maybe", is your keyboard stuck?

    If you take some time reading the forum, you may find an answer.

    In your /program/InternalSettings.h you can adjust some things like rudder stearback and other nice things.
    I recommend using notepad++, that colours text passages different - so: READ ALL GREEN LINES VERY CAREFUL!
    And don’t change to much at once.

    Now I wish you a nice career in the Caribbean!

    BYE
