Description

JACL unknown games/demos list as requested by @dreammaster on the forums.

This list will try to keep the below mentioned format to make it
a) easily readable
b) easily c&pable

The list format will be:
1st line:
Name of the game (gathered from either the file name, the ingame name or from
any documentation that comes with it)
2nd line:
MD5sum and size information given from ScummVM (minus the engine, since this
list will only feature games from the engine mentioned in the subject)
3rd line:
The version of the game (if available - gathered from either the file name,
the ingame version or from any documentation that comes with it)
information or from any documentation that comes with the game
4th line:
The link to said game
5th line
The error

I will leave out the game engine, since this list is only about JACL games.

I added the detection entries. You have to rename "grail" to "grail.j2" or "grail.jac" for running it.

However, there are problems with running these early games. Apparently, the original interpreter was more forgiving or it allowed to have both object and location to be named identically.

Additionally, some of the built-in variables such as "counter" are clashing with the object names too.

Perhaps more work on JACL is required for running these two games.
