Amazed this is still here, no idea what my old account info is here so I made a new one.
Anyway, If you can believe it, there is still someone that wants to play this game. I always come back to it for some reason but I recently installed it onto my Win7 system and it all works great. Even the 1.12 addon installer works fine and I've managed to get the game just to my liking.

Unfortunately there is 1 colossal problem.
I can't save any games!

Is this an issue with Win7? Is this the result of a botched install?
Anyone with valuable input will be welcome.

Hi, Setekh,

Welcome to Ellaybe Island!  Have a round on The Hoser:



I've probably played SD on Win7 more than most folks - after a few years, I get nostalgic and I fire up the Pirate Plague with all the baddies maxed with Dreadnaught, and try to remember my game trivia to find the captains.  

I have never had your exact problem, but I know that problems can arise with user status and security in Win7 that can interfere with saved games, as that has happened to me with other, older games.

In Win7, it is very important that everything is installed in admin mode (SD the 1.06 Patch, and the AddOn Installer), and that the game itself is run as admin.  Don't monkey with your current install - yet.  Just try another install of SD as Admin into a different place on your HD, start it as admin, and see if that one works.

Another thing to check is to be sure that the attributes of your SD folder are all cleared.  Over and over my computer will reset the attributes of a folder to "read only".  An easy check on the properties of the folders.

I hope you can get your game running, and that you come back to visit us old dogs at Ellaybe once in a while.

BTW, if you've read around on the site, you may have noticed that a lot of us are sailing together in Uncharted Waters Online.  It's the first online sailing game to feel a lot like SD, and it allows you to enjoy the SD atmosphere with the excitement of a current game release.  It's been a real shot in the arm, and got a lot of us out from under our rocks around here.

lol, Hoser is still about.  It's DrunkenPirate from your old mercantile forum.

I managed to get it fixed. No idea what caused it because I reinstalled it the exact same way I did the first time with all that administrator stuff.
I'll check out that online game later.

Hey, DP.  We get older, but we still know where our old haunts are.  :D

Glad you got it working.  I'll tell the crow's nest in the Pray For Wind at UWO to keep their eyes peeled for your ship.
