shorter pauses

And why are there pauses during the game? It pauses for 5 seconds every time I go to the pub, when I buy drinks, when I'm restocking, when I try to leave a store, etc. I probably spent 10 hours just pausing. Gr.
to make pauses shorter go to church choose the "instant message" column and set the value smaller (standard is 10 but 3 is enogh)

hints

to find a treasure after getting the map: go ashore somewhere, search for treasure - of course you find nothing, but one of your mates will give you a hint - more to the west or so - search again at your posotion, next mate will help you, one will know the exact position, use the sextant to find it

on investments: invest in market->economy level of the city will rise (in next month)-> may be new trade goods appear (e.g. invest in jamaica for gold, in oslo for wood)+++invest in shipyard->industry level will rise next month->better ships can be built (level1000 for WAR GALLEON!)

if you make a city support portugal, to your fame the average of economy and industry level will be added, you may first invest 50k each in market and shipyard to increase the levels, then "capture" the city, max fame is 50000

motivations:
find the (useless) port Ruwen
make Dias to join your crew - it is possible! try to get better levels than Dias - impossible?

Guest OMG! This game is AWESOME! The last time I played this game was in '94!

I've a question for all! Some dude in Seville asked me to bring Ruby Shield for him! So I travelled from Seville to Veracruz to meet Bonita and buy the map from her. So I go the map but WHERE THE HELL IS THE TREASURE? Does anyone have the coord to Ruby Shield? I've Speculum but it doesn't help much GRRRRR!

Guest Ive just come back to a previous save position of this game that Ive haven't played for ages. I remember being paid by someone to discover things and report back but I don't know who they are. Is there a way I can find out?

Ok let me clarify a little. I don't care a lot for the "mouse" so I wanted to you without mouse. I realize that when in battle I need to enable the number pad, but I can't see to toggle menus and such like right clicking the mouse does.

I don't feel like saving, shutting down, restart with mouse every time I go into a battle

The game won't work under normal Windows XP. Use DOSBox. And it's really not advisable to post your e-mail address in forums, bots pick them up and send spam to them.
