Virus/Malware in emailed download

Post by Hecateus » December 9th, 2017, 7:03 pm

Hi,
I recently got the email for the digital rewards (for Bard's Tale 4) zip files.

Download BTClassics_Emulated.zip
Download BTClassics_Manuals.zip

and

Download BackerOutfitTool.zip

one of these seemed to have tripped my anti-malware softare, and came up with:

Filename: minithunderplatform.exe
Malware type: Pua.Funshion

...so thought I should inform you.

Thanks for the report. The Bard's Tale classic trilogy is most definitely NOT malware or a virus. The version we released for backers comes with a custom-made launcher application which includes some features such as easier character import between the Bard's Tale games.

When we first released it several months ago, we had a small handful of users report that it set their antivirus software off, but this is a false positive. If you are still concerned, you can simply delete the launcher files and run the game disk files in DOSbox manually. :)
