Hm, maybe I'm missing something here, but doesn't this mean that it is
still not possible to run the game from the original CD?  Why does the
engine require a different filesystem layout from the one on the CD?
Is it because there are two variants (hi/lo) of the movies?  How did
Revolution's engine handle this?
