Your problem description is insufficient for us to provide a proper answer.

Please answer the following questions:
1. What operating system do you have?
2. Did you try using VDMSound or DosBox to run the game?
3. What exact steps did you follow when trying to run the game?

If someone has them, could you please post a link or links where stream/weather charts could be found. Apparently, I can't seem to type in the right terms to come up with something. Thanks

First of all I really would like to thank the guys from Abondonia for this forum. I have played 1869 on and off, but I never managed to stay in business. Last night however I only sailed between Liverpool and Western Africa and after a couple of years going up and down I managed to make a steady profit of $1500.
It already appeared to me that sailing to Africa takes a lot longer than sailing from Africa. Now I know the current and wind directions throughout most of the year for the Atlantic, but the Pacific is really unknown to me, so once again I REALLY would like to have those current and flow charts available.
Adding to that I would like to say that the manual on the site right now isn't very good. Since the official manual is available (in text) I recommend placing that one on the site (see one the of the previous posts).
For the buy and sell prices I recommend the following site: www.1869.de.to This site has ALL the prices, where the list on your site is missing out on some season-dependent goods.
One last thing that I really would like to know, which isn't mentioned in the official manual either, is when the tea, fruit and cotton, (vegetable oil ?) is harvested. Also the time to rot of these goods would be useful to know. (Is taken on water of any influence?).
For those who have answers, or the flow charts (want it want it want it), already thanks for your help!

In addition to my last post, the data for production of fruit, vegi oil, tea and cotton:

cotton: november until february and juni until august, stays okey for 4 month (same as the amount of month it is available each time)
fruit: jan, feb, apr, may, jul, aug, oct, nov, stays okey for 2 month
tea: half march until half juli, stays okey for 4 month
vegetable oil: april-june, oct-dec, stays okey for 3,5 month (?)

Taken on water has no effect on the rottingprocess.

I just found out that the post above isn't correct, as I have only used data from a few harbours, these cotton/fruit and vegetable oil are based on the mediteranian. In the USA harvesting is in other months. I will try to put together a complete list of all seasonable products and their production towns and the months that they are produced.

No need to.
I think the harvesting seasons are mentioned in the manual. But I might be wrong...

Today i have finished the game,here a few tips:

1)DONT buy wood ship! Only Iron
2)The Brig is one of the best ship at low price
3)Put crew ordes to Hard
4)Repair your ship when the condition is 80 or below
5)At the begining is very important to sell arms to Odessa

Here some trade ruote if you start in new york:

Machines from New York to New Orleans
Texile from New Orlenas to P.Bello--Coffe from here to NewOrleans
Machines from New York to Rio--Coal from here to NY or Saltpetre from Arica to NY
Machines from SanFran to Shangay--Coal from here to SF
Machines from Melurne to Bombay--I.Rubber from Colombo to Melburne
And there are many otheres starting fron SF or LA

Default harvest chart

After quite a busy period I finally managed to complete the harvest chart as I intended to. It is a simple word file, with only the harvest goods in it (caccao,coffee, cotton, fruit, tea, tobacco, veg. oil) and the places where and when it can be bought.
Now I just need to know where I should post this chart so that it can be added to the site/manual/somewhere else.
