    Please attach also the .log files from your main game folder and perhaps a zipped save game.

    I renamed the glitched officer 'weird 1' and has a picture of a black woman thank you

    note that this officer is currently on my second ship. as a second officer
    i guess if i buy a cheap ship and put it there and the sink it i can get rid of it.

    Ah, your officer must have gotten erased then! That's indeed bad and used to happen.
    I think it's fixed with the latest internal release though; see the link in my signature.
    New game required, though....

    Thank you, can you tell me if i can apply the fix to my current install or probably not i need to install all again?
    Another thing, in the fix log it's says apothecary mission fixed, in my game it glichted and the apothecary do not talk to me anymore (after the indian guy talks to him) i can't get rid of the dead albatros i got.

    Put this into "PROGRAM\console.c", between the 'int limit;' and 'switch(0)' lines:
    Code:
    dumpattributes(PChar);
    Load up your savegame and press F12. Talk to the dodgy officer, and then post the log files. The ones you posted already don't say anything about dialogs. Besides, that 'dumpattributes' should put a lot of information about your character into "compile.log", hopefully including something about your officers.

    Try going to the tavern. I believe the serving girl, Nadine Jensen, may now be willing to take the albatros.

    Put that line into "console.c" that I suggested. In the F2 -> "Passengers" screen, unassign all officers except the dodgy one. Then press F12, quit the game and post "compile.log". I think I can write a line for "console.c" to get rid of the dodgy officer, but first I need the officer's ID. I'm hoping that "Dumpattributes" will list the ID's of all your party officers, and if the dodgy one is the only one in the party, that should give me a target.

    "console.c" shouldn't have done anything to the albatros, so I don't know what happened there.

    As for the officer, it occurs to me that the reason the glitched officer has the picture of the black woman is that the officer has lost its character model. Be on your ship. Use F2 -> Passengers to assign the officer to your party. Then use F2 -> Characters -> Select Outfit and assign the character a new outfit. Then go to shore. The officer should now appear, wearing the outfit you assigned. (I remember a long time ago, when I got a promotion, I was automatically given an officer as part of the reward, and the officer also had the black woman icon and failed to appear on shore. The lack of outfit was the problem, and when I assigned him a different outfit, he appeared.)
