    @Thagarr, do you have any ideas?

    Must be something to do with that Starforce copy protection that was included in AoP.

    I've never done much with that game, so I don't really know.

    As Pieter pointed out, Age of Pirates uses STARFORCE copy protection. By default, Windows 10 disables all old copy protection schemes and wont allow them to run. I haven't tested it myself, but a No CD crack should take care of it. Or you can try using the latest version of the Super Mod, which is available from the ModDD here : Age of Pirates: Historical Immersion Supermod

    Sorry, missed the CoAS part, but you did post in the Age of Pirates forum, so I just assumed. You will need the latest TAGES drivers for CoAS. You can get them here : TAGES, the AAA Copy Protection System
