For all those who have saving issues on Windows 7 (and probably above). Easy fix, if you know what to do.
The problems I had with this game:

1) it didn't save settings
2) saving in-game problems made the game crashed and it was impossible to run it again since the "runtime error" (whatever that was).

Since I had the same issues in the other Deck's 13 game, the DVD version of Venetica (which is a great game imo btw), I knew exactly what to do.
The problem is with non-english letters in the name of user profile in Windows. In my case it was the letter "Ł". The user name is important because the game saves files in documents folder. The developers confirmed the problem with unusal characteristics in one of the threats on this forum if I recall correctly.

Anyway what you need to do is to establish another windows 7 account, without any unsusal letters this time. Switch to that account, start the game and enjoy!!!

No need to mess with any regional settings or steam files, or whatever!!!

It is odd that the developer from Germany, with so many "ö", "ä" and so on in that language, are unable to deal with unusual letters issue.

Anyway, I hope this will help someone. Have fun with the Black Sails.
