Summary: Lure of the Temptress lure.dat versionLURE: Lure of the Temptress lure.dat version

Checked, and the codebase and .dat file are both correct and the game works. That you're getting the error means that it's finding an old version of the .dat, likely somewhere in the search path, such as from an earlier installed version, before it finds the correct one. In the absense of figuring out the correct paths, you might want to try:
1) Download the correct .dat file from's dists/engine-data/lure.dat, and either put in the game folder, or somewhere else and set the game's Extra Path to point to it.

Any further issues are probably better posted in the Forum's Help and Support section.

Also as a note, on Windows the lure.dat (and other data files) are embedded inside the ScummVM executable. So it is normal that you don't see it when downloading a new version, and there is normally no need for you to download that file separately. But if you downloaded an older version of the file in the past and it is in the game or extra directory, then you will indeed have that error and need to remove that old file.
