ZVISION: ZGI: Mac-only CD version detected as Windows CD version.

Cc: Game: Zork Grand Inquisitor


The Mac-only 2-CD English version of Zork Grand Inquisitor, distributed by MacPlay in 2001, is currently detected as the Windows English CD version.

I've confirmed that the md5 checksum and file size of SCRIPTS.ZFS for the Mac version do in fact match those recorded for the Windows version, so the game does actually launch and is playable.

However, this is a Mac-only version, and not a hybrid set of CDs, so I would expect it to be identified as a Mac version.

Currently, if I change the platform setting to Macintosh, the game is no longer detected and displays the message - Error running game: Game data not found.
Change the setting back to Windows and everything's fine.

Based on the installation instructions on ScummVM's Data Files page, the only apparent difference between the two versions is that the Mac version already includes the ADDON directory (also included in the Windows DVD version), whereas the Windows CD version requires patch 1.2 to be applied.

I don't know if it's possible to set multiple platforms on a single detecton entry, but even if Windows is the default, it would be nice to switch to Macintosh without blocking the game.
