    Hi,

    don`t know where to post bugs, so I do it here.

    First, I have installed the 1.04 something ver of SoFS over a european, english AoP patched to 1.5.
    I know russian well, so language change to russian is no problem.

    Now, in towns I meet NPC:s who have no dialogue assigned, only empty dialogue box shows and game freezes. Only way to exit is by restart button.

    This is very annoying, close to game breaking. I sincerely hope a fix can be made for this as SoFS looks in many respects as a true masterpiece.

    Regards, Oldtimer

    Hi Oldtimer,

    This addon is supposed to go on top of an unpatched game.

    I'll make a new English translation posting for english related information and discussions.

    As I said in my posting, the english language version is VERY Alpha right now and still under heavy work. It will be at least another 4 weeks before I am completely done, and even then I won't call that complete because I will still have english language audio files, transition screens and videos to create.

    If you are playing the game in the original Russian, without the english language files, then here would definitely be the place to ask your questions.

    Hi Damski,

    I found a russian KIII, ver 0.99 in my stash. The problem with empty dialogue box surfaced again in La Vega.
    I think this ver I have is as unpatched as can be.

    Apparently I can,

    a screen comes up and asks you to enter your name and the code word shown to the right. And off you go...

    Hi all,

    more bugs:

    - after finding the governors daughter in Curacao, I get a brig with grey hull named "error",

    - and when leaving Curacao I actually leave Tortuga?!

    - maybe I do something wrong, but when buying a second ship(I have a free officer) I cannot swap captains, the box is greyed out. And if I sell the ship Peter commands anyway, he is on a war tartana(also named "error") and still cannot swap ships.

    I have russian KIII ver 0.99 with SoFS on top.

    Regards, Oldtimer

    <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hi.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":gday" border="0" alt="hi.gif" /> that tortuga bug is in all english versions as well! Nobody got around to fixing it! Save your game before you enter tortuga or before you do any actions there! Otherwise you'll have to start again! The other bug I've not noticed!
    I play the Supermod repacked by a german guy and is the best one yet!! Not many bugs and very playable!

    There's a difference between staying logged in when you turn off your computer or actually posting without logging in as a guest.
    I also stay logged in if I turn off my computer because of the cookies.

    Hi all,

    some info ater I`ve looked at russian SOFS forum:

    - empty dialogue boxes, if you immediately upon getting stuck with an empty dialogue box press F6 and then F9 you should be able to continue.

    - grey brig and Tortuga instead of Curacao are known bugs, let`s hope they will be taken care of.

    - ship swapping works when in the shipyard menu, so swap ships there.

    Regards, Oldtimer

    Hi all,

    I have a problem with boardings:

    - after boarding and looting all sunduks(chests) I should be able to trigger the fight with the enemy captain by entering a door(also named sunduk).
    HOWEVER, this works maybe 1 time out of 10... And don`t ask me how I know... Other 9 times I am just stuck on the deck, the door does not open and must restart.

    This I know from one boarding I have been redoing time after time. Will try some other fights, if the problem persists, it makes the addon very disappointing, as the player will be limited to only sinking enemies.

    BTW, has anyone seen this in the english translation version of SoFS?

    Regards, Oldtimer

    Well at this point, any bugs you see in the Russian language version will be in the English translation. Once I'm done with the translation, then I will continue on to hopefully adding some things to the game and fixing any bugs I find that aren't yet fixed in the released version of the game.

    I'll also do my best to make sure any updates from BGTeam will be added to the English translation as quickly as possible.

    Hi all,

    this is a really strange mod, every time I report a suspected bug it seems to heal itself...

    Re boardings, they work now at least so far that I can loot enemy corpses and then trigger the fight with the enemy skipper.

    I will try now to open different doors after looting corpses and see what happens...

    Regards, Oldtimer

    Well,

    the boarding problem is not healing itself... It is reappearing randomly as it seems and is very annoying indeed.
    Would be nice to know if some of the russian players have experienced the same.

    Hi all,

    I have, AOP v.1.41 English Version with this Mod installed (SoFS). WOrks fine, my question is,
    - The Multiplayer Part of the Game Works? (i Try to create a Server(LAN), and can't connect to my server, try with Server Password and No-Password with no luck)

    PS- I don´t try Multiplayer in AOP v.1.41 (Original Version), maybe i will try later
    Anyone knows if works?

    PS2 - I Have POTC WIth Build Mod, AOP 2 CoAS V.1.3.0, and AoP with SoFS, If AOP Multiplayer Works, it will be a blast to play with my friends, or maybe over internet with you ppl.

    PS3 - Sry For my Bad english.
    Tnx in Advance, See u Later.
