good news, I fixed the crash. Now I have to adapt other versions too.

Check attached 2.2 slave in the meantime

I reopen because with this fix the skorl don't speak with Nellie e stand forever in the pub.
Unfortunatly, to continue the game, the Skorl have to talk in the shop in the market place. But the Skorl don't arrive in the shop because is forever in the pub.

Okay, I have made some progress. It appears that the savegame is corrupt (saving a big chunk of data with some non-modifiable lookup tables, but one of those tables is corrupt).

So it's not possible to fix the issue starting from that savegame. Can you provide the previous savegames? If I can find a non-corrupt savegame, I can create a test slave where one would have to play until the game corrupts the memory and we'll find the root cause

(fixing the savegame isn't good enough, as the game would probably re-corrupt it, I have fixed it manually check attachment just to test and the Skohl talks all right)

I took the time to play the english version (sps 2031) to the point you saved your game. I didn't experience corruption in that area so I suppose that it's random. Problem is: once it's corrupt the savegame is corrupt.

I don't know which part of the code corrupts that zone. I could do a code that repairs the zone constantly, if that's the only corruption that the code can have. I know there were issues in that exact area already so that's definitely a game bug, not specific to the italian version.
