It runs fine on win98. :P
If it really doesn't work on WinXp you could always download the pirates gold for windows version, although I think it's pretty annoying you have to reduce your color depth to 256 colors before you run the gold for windows version... Aaargh!

You can download the version for windows at:

Also, I found that the original pirates! works fine on XP and the ship battles run at normal speeds too.

I just ran the file "PIR.exe". XP isn't as bad as everyone says it is for running DOS games I find, I didn't even have to twiddle with the compatibility options. I could upload the original pirates if you like, it works fine on XP and I have the manual and map.

Hmm... The original version I have too on CD (all three languages in fact), but when I run pir.exe it stops again like every dos game under XP (no way there on my computer).
Doesn't matter much for me in any case, I play the game in Windows 98 or DosBox anyway...
Later correction: under DosBox it doesn't run for me, just under Windows 98, but without any problems there.

You don't need to install it, just copy the files over to some created directory and run install.exe for setting sound & music.

Please do not resurect old threads from the death. Start yourself a new personnal thread about your problem. You are way more likely to get help that way.
