Description (last modified by antoniou79)

The Rhem SE Series (I, II, III, and IV) on Steam give the following detection strings when I add them to ScummVM 2.6.0git (current master):

RHEM SE titles I, II and III can only be installed in English language (there's no option at installation time). The user can select another language, after installation, when launching the game for the first time and seemingly never again(!) Changing the language from that one-off menu does not seem to change the MD5 detection for ScummVM for these games. Available languages are English, German, French, Italian, Polish and Russian.

RHEM IV SE is available to install via Steam in English, German, French, Italian and Polish, but the ScummVM detection string does not seem to differ for each installation option. There's also a language configuration option (again for RHEM IV SE only) from Steam's menu (right click on game -> Properties -> Language) but that does not seem to affect anything (does not re-install the game to the target language, or change the language in-game). Language selection is still done at first launch of the game and available languages are English, German, French, Italian, Polish and Russian. So, in the end, RHEM IV language selection is identical to the previous titles, despite having an external option to set the language of the game.

All titles when launched with ScummVM crash / exit immediately.
The console output is the same for all titles (only the game path differs):

Note: For the record, it's tricky to change the language of the games if I set it after the first launch of the game. Uninstalling and re-installing the game will not result in offering the choice again to the user.
On the Steam forums it's suggested to delete the save folder under the Roaming application data for the game, and do a "clean restart".
This seemingly only works for RHEM II and RHEM IV, but not for RHEM I and RHEM III (for which I haven't figured how to change the language after first launch, as of yet).
Also, to add to the mess:

Rhem I and Rhem IV both create folders in the Roaming appdata windows folder.
Rhem II and Rhem III create folders under LocalLow\Adobe\Director 12\ subpath in appdata.
