Latest Microsoft Defender reports virus in start.windows.exe that is in the emulated classic package. Is this a false positive?

It is indeed up. You can go here https://app.crowdox.com/retrieve/inxile ... ds-tale-iv to submit the email address that you used for the Kickstarter and retrieve your backer survey.

How do I download? When I go back to CrowdOx all it does is let me review my pledge rewards, but there is no option to download any of the emulated games.

You will receive an email shortly after completing your backer survey that contains the downloads. :) (Might want to check your spam folder just in case.)

I'm having the same problem. I got CrowdOx to resend me the e-mail, but it doesn't have any download links in it. I found links to Ultima Underworld 1 and 2 on the CrowdOx site, but not the original 3 games (or the instructions manuals/maps for those games).

No. It still gives you the prompt, but you can just press Enter to bypass it.

Curious question,

When I purchased "The Bards Tale" a few years back, it came with the trilogy. Is this the same version that you are talking about here?

Being able to play the trilogy separate from the main game would be a nice option.

Probably not. Bard's Tale backers received an emulated version of the trilogy bundled with a launcher and DOSBox. The copies that came with Bard's Tale 2004 were emulated copies of the Apple versions that can only be launched from within the game.

Today, we're pleased to announce that The Bard's Tale I-III Classic Trilogy is available to all backers at $20 and above! This emulated version of the original Bard's Tale games is our special gift to you!

The version we've provided is the original DOS versions, emulated using DOSBox, and accessible using a custom launcher we set up to make the process easy. Through the launcher, you can also do things like change graphics filtering to fit your perfect definition of "nostalgia", and transfer characters between the games when you've finished one and want to continue in the next one!

To access this, visit your Rewards page after logging in and look for the "Downloads" button on your specific reward that includes the Classic Trilogy. You can find an online readme for the games, though you can also refer to the one included with the game.

Of course, Old Skuul continues its work on the remastered version of these games, and we'll get that version to you when it's ready. :)
Pardon my ignorance, but how do I access my Rewards page? Thank you.

I didn't do the KickStarter or - afaik - the CrowdOx version, I pre-ordered the Platinum edition via bardstale.com. How would I get access to the emulated trilogy?

I have never received anything from CrowdOX without having to contact support. I have had to contact support for the BETA access to the game and I have had to do so with the trilogy. What a total sh it show. I qued up to get an email resent to me for the backer rewards and no email has been sent. Id like to that marketing for single handedly ruining my first time backing any game like this. I will never do it again thanks to your shi ty practices.

No key yet - bummer. Completed the survey a few times. Rather have paid full price and had it already. At the very least an admin should assist backers with similar problems, CrowdOX has been awful.
