These are not original game files. You can tell because resource.001 is larger than a floppy disk. This is the result of a fan tool that repackaged original game files into a single one. ScummVM only supports original game files. (There are effectively infinite file variants that can be generated by fan tools.)

The exception is if a repackaged version is sold legitimately through GOG or Steam or something, but that's not this. (If I'm wrong about that, please re-open the ticket and add details.)
