Could you please provide a bit more info about this version. Who is the author of the translation?

This is not a valid detection entry.

This is a fan translation from 2001 that was originally distributed as a set of patch files to be added to the original game. Someone has taken those patch files and repackaged them with a fan tool and included the entire game. From the file dates, that occurred in 2019. And they did a messy job, because now everything is in RESOURCE.001 but they still included the other RESOURCE.0* files that are no longer used.

We try to use detection entries for legitimate versions, otherwise there are countless variants that can be created with fan tools like this. If someone had used a different repackaging tool, or a different version, then they would have gotten different files. And in this case, most of the files in this "entry" are no longer used.

The fallback detection correctly detects these files as LSL3, and allows you to play. Just click Add Anyway on the Unknown Game Variant screen. That's what it's for, so you can still play a weird set of files without a detection entry. (If that doesn't work, make sure you're using at least ScummVM 2.7.0.)

Closing because this is not a valid entry for detection tables and it's still playable.
