    SAVE OFTEN - This is Very Important - You don't want to be stuck & find that you have got through 2 puzzles and a big fight since your last save & are going to have to do it all again. :no

    Remember this is a Problem / Puzzle solving Quest - not an RPG - don't try and build your character outside the Storyline ( e.g. don't hire officers ). The story gives you everything you need, when you need it, and develops your character as you go along.

    Walk don't Run - especially up to people - NPCs often have auto-start dialog with the player ( where they talk to you as you approach them ) - if you run up to them this can fail (something that happens in the game generally)

    Enter / Spacebar - to move ---- The Story gives you access to locations not normally available in the game (roofs - towers - special story locations - climbing ladders etc ). In a lot of these you move by pressing Enter and/or Spacebar. So if you find yourself standing still running on the spot, press Spacebar ( I forgot this several times and thought I had hit a bug - only to realise I had not pressed Spacebar - making me feel really stupid :walkplank )

    Log Messages - top left of screen - read these as they have helpful hints & clues. :yes

    Icons - top left of screen - sometimes when you approach an item that you have to open / pick up etc. the icon at the top left does not appear. Approach the item & press Enter/ Spacebar and the action will happen okay - there are just some problems with some icons.

    Listen to what NPCs say - some dialog mainly between NPCs is audio not text. So listen & enjoy.

    Warning:- There is a point in the story where a random CTD (Crash to Desktop) can happen. ( This problem is still being resolved )
    It is when you raise the Pirate Flag on top of the Wooden Tower - just before you start the Revenge section towards the end of the Story.
    If you get a CTD - there should be an automatic Quick Save performed just before the point where the CTDs occur - use this replay the Flag raising.

    If you get stuck there is a Walkthrough on the Wiki here ----->>>> http://piratewiki.net/index.php?title=Woodes_Rogers

    OR HERE ---->>>> http://piratesahoy.net/wiki/woodes-rogers/

    Please report any problems and bugs on the bug tracker or post them in this forum and someone will try to help you

    I have only met this when loading a save game or starting a jump start.
    If you walk close to any character so his small portait gets visible the icons after that appear ok.

    Maybe it's because you're in fightmode then. You can't open doors either in that mode.
    Anyway I'll add some info about the situation in the game. (It's in the walkthrough)

    When I get to the Gunpowder Storage, there is nothing in the barrels or the chests, except letters, which I can't take. I don't really know what to do.

    Have you used any jump starts (Blackbeard's head) in that case which one or played it all from the beginning?
    Do you have the latest game version installed?

    I got the May update, and I have started the game from the swamp Island, where the crew mutiny against me.

    I tested the latest version (9 nov) and the Gunpowder Storage works. I think you should download and install it.
    The "letters" means something's wrong with those items.
    Found another bug though but fixed it.

    After the install copy this file over the existing file in PROGRAM\Storyline\WoodesRogers\quests.

    When I go on to the piratesahoy.net and click on "New Horizons" download latest version, it sends me to the mddb.com site, and the latest version of the mod is 16th May

    Newer version has not been publicly released yet, because we're still working on it.
    Link in my signature. New game required, but you can use the ENABLE_CHEATMODE jumpstart if necessary.

    No attachment, I'm afraid....

    The file is for everyone who uses the latest Beta 3.3 WIP, though especially for me since I should put it in the next release. ;)

    After enabling cheats, start a new game and talk to Blackbeard's head in the opening cabin scene.
