Majoras Mask bug

Issue:
No matter what, I can never seem to talk to this Shrub in the town at the beginning of the game (see image). There’s no interaction prompt, he never pops out of the ground like he should and so I am stuck.

I have finished the game on N64 before, I’ve watched videos of how it’s supposed to work, and I need to talk to that shrub to give it the moon tear in order to progress in the story.

The game runs flawlessly otherwise. I am using a texture mod, but it occurs with or without it.

Your log file suggests that your game might be tainted. Also, be aware that the M1 macs are currently not officially supported in Citra. This might mean that some, if not most games do not function properly. You’re lucky if they work at all. Regardless, you’ll have to redump your game.

Please refer to our Game Dumping Guides:

Dumping Game Cartridges
Dumping Installed Titles

I have exactly the same problem and no matter how often I redump the game, nothing has changed. This is sad because with the hd mod, this is the best way to play the game, I think. I’m running MM on M1 too.
