Hey everyone, I've got the same fkn crash when leaving Hermes, hooray!!!
Looked through this discussion till 2009, seems noone has a clue how to fix it :-(
Maybe the bug won't happen in a DOS version, but I can't use it b/c have no DOS drivers for my sound card... prob should try to look for them, built-in notebook audio

I prefer the situation when everything works fine and painless. I don't like tormenting myself. But if You consider it as a challenge, well... Respect 2 U ;)

Kuba Kutno: I know, but because it's my system for several months, I like it and I do not want to completely install again. Also, I like challenges ...

So why torture yourself with playing on Seven? XP is better, more compatible with everything (old & new software) and less memory eating. Salutations

Paul, the game works for me on Seven x64, original version + patch WIN95
Just a few problems:
- in win95 compatibility mode (all boxes checked) -> no page "options" in game but no crash
- without compatibility mode -> crashes during some missions
Forced to "play" between the two modes, but it is very playable
(sorry for my bad English)

Yeah, but the smoothness and enjoyment of the game while playing on DOSbox sucks in comparison with Deluxe version.

I had the same first-flight-crash bug for my WinXP machine. Since I have the DOS version of P2 and not the Deluxe windows version, I decided to try DOSbox as someone else here suggested. It works!
DOSbox is the answer if you have the classic DOS version of Privateer2. Make sure you read the user's manual for DOSbox so that you know how to switch between the 3 disks.

Colors are fucked up during installation, but in the game they are fine.
