Ok, this is my deal. I bought this game, Sid Meier's Pirates! LOVE the game. Problems. When I first put the game on my computer and you would enter either the tavern or speak with the governor the representation of your character would not be clear. It was a figure but, only color. Then, after a week it starting booting. I would see the screen freeze, (always while at sea) and then it would go to a smaller black screen and then up would pop the error message saying it had to close. I contacted the publisher, Firaxis Games. They told me I was short on memory. At the time, I had 256megs. I just upgraded to 512. It is still doing the same thing. I have been told I need to upgrade my graphics card. I've been told I should pump my memory up to 1gig. Here are my specs. Any help is so appreciated. Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHZ 512MB RAM Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller approx memory:64.0 MB Anything else? I so want this game to play!

Ah, I see. Apparently, when someone enters a forum devoted to gaming and asks for a little assistance they hold themselves up for ridicule. Does that make you feel strong? Do you feel oh so brave and intrepid? I hope it makes you feel good about yourself to mock someone else. I bet it's a real thrill for you to torture small animals and bully the other 15 year olds, huh? On a side note... Thank you for your kind intercession, Knippschild.

That's more than likely your problem. Integrated graphics cards are never good for gaming. The game most likely requires a feature that the integrated controller does not fully support, or it simple does not have enough memory.
