Thanks for the report. It seems that the game is detected like the Spanish release, which is unexpected. Can you try re-adding the game from the root directory of the CD? (a directory that contains the SPIDER directory). Also, can you send the directory structure (use ls -R or take a screenshot of the file browser) to make sure it matches the implementation? Finally, can we have a picture of the discs? It is always interesting to find a new variant of the game.

Also, are you trying to get the game directly from the CD or using the installed directory?

Since I cannot get the game to install on a Windows 11 computer I have tried copying all the folders of the SPIDER directory to my drive and adding it from there. Also, I do not own a DiscDrive anymore so I had a friend bring his one over so we could try and add this game to my SCUMMVM library. So I cannot send you the actual structure of the disc, just the part that I copied from it.

Do you remember if the disc had a file named "data.z" next to the spider directory? We have the detection of the game implemented using it. However, it is still possible that all the files are in your CD (we can try). Also, is it the CD a special version of the game?

So, erm... My friend just came over again with the external disc player... and Yes, there is a DATA.Z on the root of the disc. So what I decided to do was to, copy all of the information from the disc to a separate folder and try to add it to SCUMMVM... and erm... It worked...

This is great. I will still add a warning to avoid similar reports. The game should work fine, otherwise, please open a new report.
