turtlehead01: I used to play Bards Taie back in the late 60's, on my Commodore computer, and I loved it. Now that I am retired and have the time to play... I want to go back and play it again. Not being very computer or technical literate, I had my daughter in law search for the game and she down loaded it on my computer. I have had a lot's of problems, since the original game was made to play on commodores. it is The Bards Tale (remastered, I think) When I open the game, it shows a book which allows me to choose the original bards tale trilogy. When I go to this, it allows me to select Bards tale 1. When I try to play the game... it takes me directly into a menu that requires me to select where to go for my game (character disc) slot 6 disc 2.... slot 5 disc 2... etc. She told me that I did not need to worry about discs, because it would use my hard drive. I can't get past this screen... no matter what I do! Then the whole thing freezes up on me, and I have to finally use control-alt-delete to get out the game and resign into the computer. I am looking to talk to anyone who understands why I can't play this game , or , with another Bards Tale fanatic who knows how to play it on today's computers. HELP... I need a mentor!!

It sounds to me like the game you have is "The Bard's Tale" (2004):
https://www.gog.com/game/the_bards_tale

This is a different game than "The Bard's Tale Trilogy" (2018):
https://www.gog.com/game/the_bards_tale_trilogy

"The Bard's Tale" (2004) includes emulated versions of the original trilogy. They should still work on your computer, but they are not remastered and they might look a bit off from what you remember (because they are emulated from the Apple II GS versions of the games, not the Commodore versions of the games).

"The Bard's Tale Trilogy" (2018) are the remastered versions of the original trilogy.

Unfortunately I cannot help you with the technical problems you mentioned, but at least knowing the game you have should help if you contact the inxile help desk (mentioned above).
