    Allready done, it helped but did not fix the problem. Played for 1 and a half hour before it crashed again when i whent to land at mission 2.

    Restarted the game and was not able to load any of my 3 save games. Started over and crashed after 2 hours at sea.

    Try uninstalling the game, and reinstall it in a non windows protected folder, like c:/pirates or whatever just nothing that windows monitors i.e. program files,windows,system etc., I had same issues with constant crashes, I remembered doing that fixed a game I had trouble with a while back so I figured it couldn't hurt to try.
    Low and behold I played for almost 4 hours without any Crashes (I actually got to use the menu to quit, when I was done). another person suggested setting compatibility mode to vista service pack 2 so you may try that as well..

    I can try to reinstall it, but i have it allready in a folder/drive whit no windows files in. All my games is at E: and windows in on C:

    Did the second patch fix the issue? Steam should update the patch #2 automatically.

    It could be a "missing texture" popup behind the screen causing the "freeze". You should try to access that window and close it in order to continue. We are working on solving that error.

    Out of curiosity, are the Black Cove crashes Steam-related? Or do non-Steam copies crash too? It just seems like *almost all* Black Cove players who come here for crash help have Steam copy. I also noticed one player do a nonSteam fix on his own which also made me wonder.

    I do want to get this Black Cove game, but first Sengoku!

    Yes, the standalone "Non-Steam" version got a patch on Friday which took care of the remaining crash issues. Steam patch didn't manage to get online last week so it should happen soon now.

    "took care of the remaining crash issues,"

    Does this solve the loading save game issue if the save file is 200mbs or more?

    Bloated save game files should load correctly after patching
