Bugfix provided by Metalbrain and BadBeard:
  • The Spanish version (titled "Renaud") crashes whenever you ask the hippie where to buy the tickets. Due to a mistake in game translation (that failed to consider all required changes in message lengths), a pointer was off by 1 byte, jumping to the wrong address and crashing the game.

    Fixed using POKE 60015,166 (original value was 165)
