[Scummvm-devel] MD5 errors -- "unsupported" game versions

Hi folks,

I stated this before, but I'll repeat it: I am not happy that we now  
are so extremly picky about MD5s matching. This was *never* what I  
intended when I said a long time ago that we should try reducing the  
number of SCUMM targets.

If we insist on being so pickish, we could just as well abolish all  
those targets and *only* use the MD5. Which I don't think we should.

For most games either just the target, or the target+platform are  
sufficient to properly recognize the game, so we should support that,
