What does "verify" mean?
Ok, the build is pretty old (september 2013) and I was not running the game for a while, but still can't get what it's supposed to do here.
Can anyone explain...?

It's making sure that the files for grim are complete and not corrupt.

The game detection code (when you click 'add game') only checks small parts of a few files.
This code performs a complete one-time check of all data files to ensure every file was copied over correctly.
It cuts down on the number of bug reports we get (faulty data causes nasty problems) and ensures your run doesn't get killed because of bad data.

Oh! :shock:
So I assume it's collecting some sort of checksum (maybe md5?) of all my files.
Right.
Safe.
Well done.

I would write down a short description of this procedure into README, in case other users will wonder about it :lol:

There was also a typo fixed there! (neccessary -> necessary)
