Specifically Trojan:Win32/CryptInject!ml. I've seen gameplay of this game on YouTube and have played a past version of it, but I'm still on edge and need this cleared up.

It's because of the new launcher code, you just need to add it as an exception or find a way to bypass it, I use AVG.

More specifically it's because the launcher was written in Autohotkey, which modern Windows detects as a potential threat: https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=59598

Unfortunately we'll have to create a new launcher from scratch to fix this, which isn't going to happen for a while.

You can download a version without the launcher here: https://cutstuff.net/public/MM8BDM-v6a-nolauncher.zip

However, you'll have to use something like ZDL or Doomseeker to launch the game.

ZDL: https://github.com/lcferrum/qzdl/releases/tag/3-1.1
Doomseeker: https://doomseeker.drdteam.org/
