I have downloaded the .dat file directly from GitHub.

Is it possible that you have another older 'supernova'dat' file around?
I checked the file you linked to and it has the version byte set to 3, which is correct. It also works for me.

The version of the supernova.dat file was changed on June 21, and then again on July 2. So any version 1 of the file would be from before June 21.

I'm sorry, that was my mistake. I had old version of supernova.dat in the games folder. Now the games work.
