A downloadable mod

Welcome me Hearties to Gentlemen of Fortune 1.2, running native on Buccaneer’s Reef Maelstrom Engine. Start playing it in the improved engine with no crashes and far improved graphics; play this game the way it was meant to be played.

This download contains the script mods and game assets.  In order to play, you must use the newest Maelstrom Engine (click the link to get it).

If you have already been playing GOF 1.2 (U.S. version), your saved games should remain compatible with this version of the mod.   If you copy existing stock AoP 2 GOF 1.2 SAVE folders/files into the SAVE folder, they will load and work.

It contains everything to play the original GOF 1.2 mod, along with many fixes applied to the original mod, and with the new Maelstrom Engine, the infamous mast-fall crashes are a thing of the past.

NOTE: Considering ERAS 2 is derived from GOF 1.2, and we also have considerable background playing GOF 1.2, this mod has been fairly tested on Maelstrom and works as well, or better than before.

Original Base Game: AGE OF PIRATES 2 – City of Abandoned Ships; Licensing sold and owned by other third party(s). Original Source Code (freeware) which ran in DirectX 8 was given away freely eight years ago and completely rebuilt and overhauled by the Buccaneer's Reef team. This is completely new source code which is now capable of running all the older games based on POTC (Storm 2.0) and Caribbean Tales (Storm 2.5), plus the newer based on City of Abandoned Ships (Storm 2.8), but now in DirectX 9 and 64 bit, if desired, to which all rights are reserved by the Buccaneer's Reef Team and official legal licensing pending.
