VCRUISE: Schizm - Add support for disk1.pak

Reported by: laenion Owned by: elasota

Description

To play the (German?) two disc DVD version of Schizm via ScummVM an installed version of the game is required - only then files like "Schizm.exe" or the "Gfx", "Log" or "Map" directories will be visible. Unfortunately the installer is only available for Windows, making it difficult to get a working game installation on other operating systems.

However I noticed that the file DISK1.PAK on DVD A contains all the files in uncompressed format, they are just concatenated. (Unfortunately I couldn't spot where the file names themselves are stored.)

It would be great if the engine would also support using the disk1.pak file directly.

It looks like this is Gentee Installer (a.k.a. CreateInstall) which ScummVM doesn't support yet. I'll look into it but this may take a while.
