Guides on emulating older games

Sid Meier returns to his roots with this remake of Sid Meier’s Pirates!, his 1987 game about sailing the high seas in search of treasure. As in the original, you will plunder cities, sink enemy ships, and more. A plethora of different styles of gameplay will have you sneaking out of prison, dancing with the governor's daughter, engaging in real-time strategic combat, and a slew of others. The remake features a new 3D engine, but its style of stringing several minigames together to make a congruent game remains true to the original. (MobyGames)

Download 1 is a trimmed disc image from the game DVD for v.1.0.

Downloads 2 & 3 are No-DVD cracks for version 1.0 of the game. Choose one. Either works for me.

Download 4 is version 1.0.1 of the game application. At present you can also apply the update from within the game but the Feral server for this will eventually cease and then the 1.0.1 update on this page will be required. HOWEVER, do not do the update unless you have an original DVD as this is required to play version 1.0.1 (unless you can find a No-DVD for it).

A note about the copy protection:

The game DVD contains SafeDisc copy protection. I have not made a copy of the SafeDisc file for use with version 1.0.1 of the game. This is because the version of SafeDisc on the DVD seems to involve a very large area of unreadable segments with small islands of readable data that make up the digital signature required by the game to play. The whole second layer of the DVD is probably like this and I was not prepared to risk damaging my DVD reader by attempting to make a copy in "skip error mode" (Alcohol 120% in Windows can do this).
