Then are there any bad consquences in having data05.lab and a patched grim.tab but no patch05.bin (like crashes)?

Maybe the ResidualVM page's downloads section ought to include grimdata.rar. It would be the easiest way for people using non-Windows platforms who have original-version CDs to get the patched files.

(Not sure if that rar is legally kosher, though.)

what rar are you talking about exactly? the one I made?

residual can not host the extracted files from the patch, as it would be a breach of copyright.

hence the tool to extract it yourself.

Kind of suspected that. It's a fine line to walk.

Maybe the download page can have links to the patches (for the different languages) and one for the tool to extract them.
This is a safer way.

I think residual should use them only if it finds them together. And, if it doesn't, i should suggest the upgrade to the user, also.

Just wondering but how can I compile the patch extractor? I assumed it would be compiled with an option in the configure stage but I couldn't find any information on it.

I don't have the means to test it here, but you should be able to add
Code:
tools
on line 30 of Makefile.common to get the tools to compile.

File Data005.lab from patch is needed to update game scripts.
Also Grim.tab to update subtiles. Patch05.bin file will not be used, this file is used originaly to upgrade savegame from unpatched version.
