Emulator Issues #903
Memory corruption in Zelda: Wind Waker
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. There are two known instances of this bug: The first is when the
player turns on the glowing walkways in the Tower of the Gods, and the
second is when the girl opens the safe on Windfall Island. Likely there
are others as well.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
It shouldn't crash, but instead it says "Error: trying to compile at 0.
LR=80011f94" and the game exits.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
32-bit, current revision, dual-core on Windows XP

That thread was erroneously titled, though, because it's the same bug that
showed up before the late 1200s in revisions, and it got fixed by revision
1289, which made some changes to the patching engine. Not sure what was

work out what it is that needs to be changed, I did come up with a
workaround: add the following to GZLE01.ini right below the item hang patch:
+$Fix memory corruption
I haven't tested whether or not that fixes both instances of the bug or
just the safe one, but the bugs are almost certainly the same bug, so I
suspect they come from the same place, and if not, then you can just make a
However, it would be ideal if this patch were unnecessary.
