SFAIK it's an install shield variant, a friend gave me
the game over Christmas, I installed it yesterday so
that I could try some other games out so far
everything's choked on the installer or OLE.

I'm testing some of the more complex DirectX 9
functionality at the moment and working on an annoying
clipping bug to try and improve directX with
everything, but I'll have a look at Pirates again

If anyone's got anything else that they would like me
to look at (and there's a demo or you can post me a
copy) then send me an email and I'll see what I can

[Pirates is very simple and will run with stubbed out
textures, at the moment it's running fine with simple
world detail and any level of model complexity, pixel
shaders turned off and simple shadows I can't see it
breaking any time soon]
