I play Pirate on an older laptop and a newer desktop that have Windows 8. It runs fine although I did have problems when I updated to Win 8.1 on the laptop. This update has some new tablet related power saving features on it that can cause problems under certain circumstances. In my case, Pirate would freeze up after about 5 minutes of play. This was due to the network hardware going into sleep mode. I changed some settings related to this and it works again although I still have occasional lock-ups due to the video driver not being compatible with Windows 8. This shouldn't be an issue with a newer PC though.
