Last Express in Datafiles list 

I didn't know The Last Express were supported...and my daily build doesn't know the game either...probably a mistake in the datafiles list?

Being listed in the datafiles list doesn't _necessarily_ mean a game is supported i.e. in a stable release build and/or bugs are accepted.

It usually means that the engine is reasonably complete in the unstable / development build and early beta-testers / power users and/or the engine developers have added the datafiles for testing reference.

The Last Express Engine is in the main scummvm tree, but only enabled on unstable / nightly / development builds since it is not fully complete and the engine developer has not updated it in some time. It is not a maintenance headache and since more than 50% of the engine is present, hopefully someone will look at completing this at some point:
