NIPPON: Dino refuses to talk (Amiga/French) (script bug)

Reported by: (none) Owned by: peres
Priority: low Component: Engine: Parallaction
Version: Keywords: original
Cc: raziel- Game: Nippon Safes


ScummVM 0.11.0svn (Oct 31 2007 19:54:05) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 zLib MPEG2

Like i said it's always better to check every possibility there is. ;-)

Playing the game in French now and when Dough needs to get the Sumo ticket from Dino, he (Dino) refuses to talk and walks straight into the Sumo arena after Dough said his first line to him - leaving the player alone without a ticket and stuck.

I found this:

Check the french remark on the bottom: Warning!!!!: In French Langage game crashed 2 times with original:

****************************** French Bug! ********************************** Attention !!!: le jeu plante en francais a deux endroits: - Avec Dough lorsque vous apportez le bon pour un repas gratuit Dino (pas le vert) ici dino vous parlera peine et rentrera dans le batiment sans vous donner le billet pour le match => vous serez bloquer

- a la derniere partie (lorsque vous avez terminer les aventures avec les trois personnages) ici => Guru mditation

==> pour eviter cela sauvegarde le jeu avant ces passages qui plantent et recharger en anglais

Which roughly translate to this:

Warning !!!: The game crashes at two positions in french language: - When Dough approaches Dino to give him the restaurant free-eating bon to receive the sumo ticket (NOT the green bill), Dino talks very little and finally walks away leaving Dough without the ticket and stuck to go on further in the game. - In the final part (where one has finished with all three characters) the game crashes with a "Guru Meditation" (<- famous Amiga crash message ;-))

==> to cure this the install overrules this passages by loading in the english version.

Maybe a native french can confirm that?

So, it seems this is a bug in the original?

As this seems a bug in the original scripts, my current suggestion is just avoid playing the French version.

This bug was fixed in the WHDLoad installer suite (

The assembler source for the fix is inside the package, not sure if it helps though, but maybe it can give some pointers?
