Hey, I loved this game and it's music !

I had already contacted upstream begin of this year.
he replied back then that the game was quite not done;
well there have been some commits since,
maybe it'll be good enough for Stretch goal with a bit of luck,
an half-broken engine would be kind of deceptive for users.

As this engine would need a mix off the original + new assets;
please store data in /usr/share/games/openomf .

One more pedantic way would have been to store the original data in
/usr/share/games/one-must-fall (engine-agnostic name)
and new data + a linkfarm in 
for the theorical case that an other OMF-compatbile engine someday appears.

But that has little chance to happen & it's not an absolute "rule/policy":
for already packaged engines (eg: dxx-rebirth for Descent 1&2);
G-D-P sticks to already defined namespace. (usr/share/games/d1x-rebirth)
