Are these checksums of the whole file contents, or of the first 5000 bytes of each file? The MD5 checksums are calculated from the first 5000 bytes of each file for speed reasons. Also, the file sizes will be needed

File sizes, in bytes:

BTW, I've looked into the sources and it seems the game language is being detected based on presence of another language, beside English, in the text resources. Now, these are packed so no human readable strings are visible in the files, but my version was sold in Europe so it's quite possible it does include German as well. But it plays in English nevertheless.
