Without a doubt.

The real solution here would be one of these:

  o Detect FM-TOWNS games (which are most frequent target here)
  o Offer user a set of games to choose from
  o Watch those translations and update MD5s accordingly, possibly
    keeping MD5s for every variant they release.

First one is difficult to implement I'd say.
