So it is still available DRM-free from Steam, but in a roundabout way. I wouldn't totally dismiss it on the list.
Yeah, that's why I was kinda iffy on posting it. If you have a Steam-laden version, you can get around Steam. And even then it's not completely
DRM-free since Taleworlds wants your key code only for installation. For many, that's close enough. For others, well, that's a choice for the buyer to make.
My apologies if I threw a wrench into the works of this thread.
