Unamed Google User: Thank you for this bug report. Please can you attach a file listing of your Neverhood Russian datafiles with the associated file md5sums as a text file to this bug? The output of a tool such as or similar would be optimal. Also, any other description of your released version would be useful to enable the Neverhood engine developers to locate a copy to debug with...

Unnamed Google User: "Diadiushka Research"? Is that a fan translation?

If so, could you provide us with the *patch* on top of the English version (or other version)?

Although this Russian version was distributed on CDs back in 1997 it can still be considered as fan-made (due to good quality and "non-official" source).

The game is detected by ScummVM as russian version that's why I think it s okay with you...

Anyway, there many differences with the English version, so I can provide you with an ISO, or I can generate a patch against the game data files (as far as I see only M.BLB and S.BLB are unchanged). Please tell me what is better.

Guys, you're out of your minds.

Why are you distributing warez?

I have to choice but close this issue.
