ACCESS: Access.dat seems to be borked

There was an update to access.dat for the spanish version, it seems to have skipped the english version of the executable and probably other Access Software games too, after running the create_access on my executable it seems to be working again, the original version was 400kb and the updated version is only 200kb

For now getting all the executables together with create_access would be easiest, but some kind of separation with an access_*.dat naming scheme might be preferable to avoid future update issues. Possibly a md5 sum or such for the wildcard. Don't know if other .dat files might have a similar issue.

Or an enum that points to the different versions.

I've pushed a re-generated access.dat file, and have verified that the different versions of Amazon, including the demo, properly start. As well as Martian Memorandum, though that's still unfinished at this point in time.
