Marie & Elie no Atelier: Salberg no Renkinjutsushi 1-2 (マリー&エリーのアトリエ 〜ザールブルグの錬金術士1・2〜) is an compilation for the Sega Dreamcast, containing enhanced versions of Marie no Atelier: Salburg no Renkinjutsushi (1997) and Elie no Atelier: Salburg no Renkinjutsushi 2 (1998).

Kriz virus

Initial copies of Marie & Elie no Atelier accidentally shipped with a variant of the "Kriz" virus, originally released in the autumn of 1999. While unable to do any damage to the Dreamcast console, the game features extra content that can only be accessed by inserting the disc into a PC.

One of these files, a screensaver, is infected, and will silently embed itself in the operating system. On the 25th of December, Kriz will execute its payload onto Windows 9x, Windows NT or Windows 2000, wiping any drives it can find and on Windows 9x, adjusting the computer's BIOS, effectively killing the machine and forcing users to undertake a completely fresh install.

While several variants of Kriz were produced, even by November 2001, most antivirus software could detect the virus and safely remove it from the system. As such, while still a dangerous oversight, users with up-to-date virus definitions would have been safe (although as a read-only format, there was no means of removing it from the Dreamcast GD-ROM). Modern versions of Windows, and indeed other operating systems, are unaffected by Kriz.
