Anyone want to compare and verify?
Not sure what's the point considering those are official downloads but sure - the checksums are the same for me.
That's easy: These aren't hosted on GOG, and the official sources might become unavailable - one of the links is already broken. Now we have a set of MD5 values, verified by both of us, which anyone can use to verify downloads from other sources in the future.
Super important? No, not really. More of "we can do it, easily, so why not" kind of thing.
Anyway, thank you for checking the values! Appreciated. :)
