The original Sea Dogs was a glorious
adventure with great graphics. Sea Dogs II, retitled Pirates of the
Caribbean to ride a tie-in with the film to commercial success, looks to
eclipse the original.
- In the early stages
your character isn't very adept at fighting. Use you first skill points
for melee (and commerce).
- Be sure and don't
forget the scoundrel's most reliable tactic when fighting superior
forces--run away! You can defeat two enemies by running and gunning,
using your pistol and running while reloading.
- Blocking seems to
keep your damage to a minimum.

- Are there brigands in your path? Go
around and run away.
- Having trouble getting past the French
guards at the Oxbay gate? Rush past them, they are too stupid to follow
you through the gate or raise an alarm.
- If you put into port at night, you can
go to the tavern and ask the barkeeper for a room. Once in the room, the
night passes in a few seconds and you can re-enter the tavern and then
go into the street--presto! It's day.
- Trapped on Dowesen Island: When you lose
your fleet and wake up on Dowesen shore without a ship or gold, you get
directed to go and look for work from the Dowesen pirates ... but there
is small problem ... they are hostile to you! Solution: Save after you
wash up on beach. Go into the jungle and take the first right. Should
take you to the pirate fort. There is one ship looking for crew. Find
the captain in the tavern. Fight him. If you win, you will win the ship
and crew. Sail on to Islle Muella and find your old ship and crew
waiting for you. If pirate bands block you before you can get to the
fort, step back and forth at the interface between the jungle and the
beach. The mobs seem to spawn random places each time the area is
re-initialized. Just keep trying until they are not in they way. This
works in many places where the spawn is random. By Baddog

Danielle Greene? The super hot lady pirate? She was featured in Sea Dogs II
promotional material but Bethesda let good sense hold them back and she went
MIA. Well, you can be her, along with any of the 142 or
so player models. By Lamu.
To do so in a new game:
Open up INSTALLDIR\Program\Characters\characters_init.c in notepad.
Go down to the line that looks like: makeref(ch,Characters);
here are things that are safe to change without breaking the game:
ch.name = "Blaze"; // Change first name
ch.lastname = "Devlin"; // Change last name
ch.model = "Blaze"; // Pick any of the models from INSTALLDIR\RESOURCE\MODELS\Characters
ch.sex = "man"; // Can be man or woman, change if the player animations look
You can also just alter your
name for the whole game and your starting skills:
open the file with notepad:
search for "hawk" and you're in the right line.
change the setting to your liking.
Start a NEW game - you cannot alter the saved game or character.
