If you marry not the black-haired daughter (noble, daughter of duke I believe) but instead the blond one (that looks better too, is noble one too) you get more points at the end of game because she's more kind and nice.

If you answer the copy protection incorrectly, the game is supposed to stop at some point later while playing, but I never encountered that because I have manual where all the flags are listed.
In Dos-version of the game, while in fencing, you press any attack key and you character does one attack, to attack again you need to hit attack keys again, which I think makes more sense than hitting the key once to release never-ending series of same attacks that are even difficult to stop again (that's why I like Dos-version of the game, where you can easily react to opponent's attacks and parry them :wink: )
Btw, my PC is: P4 2.4 Ghz, I guess that's why the ship combat is so impossible fast to play, but in Dos-version of the game the speed is everywhere normal, even without a slowdown program.

Can't wait to play this game (dling it). I used to play on Sega... god was it a blast... Good old times.

By the way, are there games similar to Pirates! Gold but which are better?

I have to say that I do prefer the original Pirates! to Pirates! Gold. I don't what it is but I am better at it and it has more personality than Gold. If anyone wants it just PM me.

Hey people, how do I save in this game? Someone mentioned you have to be in a port?! If I press Shift D (or alt+D or CTRL+D...can't remember which) while I'm in a port the cursor moves from one option to another (ie from Merchant to Tavern to Bank etc) however there doesn't seem to be a Save Game option.

You'll have to be in captain's room for that. I'm not sure if you can do that while you're in the town, but probably now. You can enter it while you're on the sea. SPACE-button was it, I believe...
