Can you indicate which version of ScummVM you are using and on which platform?

The drascula.dat file is a file that comes with the ScummVM distribution, and I suspect you have one from an older ScummVM lying around (for example in the drascula game directory) that is picked up by ScummVM.

I just tried myself with a recent ScummVM version (from today) and it works properly.

Version 5 of 'drascula.dat' is used by ScummVM 2.0.0. ScummVM 1.9.0 uses version 4, and we are now at version 6. So I am guessing you are using ScummVM 2.0.0.

If needed you can download v5 of drascula.dat at

Yes, I am using 2.0.0, and when I re-downloaded it it worked.
