>Secret of Evermore

>If the player or dog their name have foul language in them like "fuck" or "ass", the boatman will charge the player 3 amulets. This is the only known instance in the game where foul language is checked. A name like "Cassie" will also be regarded as such, since it has "ass" in its name

https://secretofevermore.fandom.com/wiki/Skeletal_Boatman

Ever seen anything like this in another game?

get fucked potty mouths

That's hilarious
>>
>>10821182
its not even the most uncommon thing in the game to stumble upon either. kids prolly named jarpig characters "assfuck" or "fagmuffin" or whatever tf all the time back then
iirc theres a secret shop you can find outside that one town with the bazaar minigame where you have to get sucked around a patch of quicksand by a tornado like 200 times or something insane. idk how anyone found that. id assume it was in nintendo power

If you type "fuck" into picrel's high score screen it changes it to something else. I can't remember what, I can't find it online, and I can't be bothered to check myself. Also, nothin nasty now

I hadn't heard about this. Do you have a link to somewhere talking about it? I couldn't see anything but wasn't sure what to search for

I found out about the foul language thing because I was looking up how to find the alchemist guy in the desert of doom. He usually gives you the Sting magic. But I was playing a randomized version of the game using this
https://evermizer.com
and I already got Sting from somewhere else and thought that alchemist guy might have something else I needed so I should try to find him. The randomized game works pretty well though, i haven't had any problems so far. Only thing was I couldn't trigger the fight against Vigor in Nobilia without first going to the area outside Blimp's cave in Crustacia, just before the desert of doom, and falling down the northern pit just outside his cave, which then triggers the cutscene where you control the dog in the Nobilia fountains area for a short while

>>10821351
just look for an old online walkthrough. itll undoubtedly mention it
its the part right before that timed trading sequence minigame. iirc it gives you a ton of gold so you can buy all the OP items without having to worry about bartering super efficiently

Uniracers won't let you name your unicycles any swear words...It will just say "Not Cool Enough" when you try to enter them. There's a bunch of innocuous words the game won't let you use either. "Sonic" and "Sega" are banned too which is pretty funny.
>>
>>10821156
I don't think games changing profane high score names is anything too rare, but I remember for some reason if you did it in MK4 it would change your name but also play a voice clip of Shao Khan saying "SHWAAA" or something.

Some arcade games will change your initials to something else if you try to input something like ASS or SEX

Spider-Man for PS1. Try to put a cussword in the password screen and Spidey punches it to turn the word into something cute like "FLOWER" or "CUDDLES". Also works for Enter Electro.

>>10821558
yeah it doesn't make much sense for offline games.
>>
>>10821561
No, you wouldn't get banned for saying a slur in an offline game. If it had happened you'd be able to find at least one example.
>>
>>10821395
Yeah i think i prefer the secret of evermore method where they just mess with you a bit in-game rather than just not letting you do it at all

Type a second time. Game resets.

Takes you back to the title screen? That's pretty hardcore.

In Dragon Warrior 7, you get cursed by the Goddess of Naming or whatever if you rename your character a curse word - it gets stuck like that, and you have to pay a hefty fee (for the early game at least) to undo it.

Conker's Bad Fur Day did on the cheat code entry screen. The fire imp will get pissed off if you enter arse, arsehole, ass, asshole, bastard, bollock, bollocks, bugger, cock, cum, cunt, cuntlips, dick, feck, fuck, fucker, fuckface, fucking, jerk, knob, manco, nob, penis, piss, pissflaps, pissing, shit, shite, sod, spunk, tit, tits, turd, twat, vagina, wank, or wanker.

Don't some earlier DQ also do similar things? As well as not allowing people to name their characters "AAAA" and "BBBB"?

>manco
apparently it's spanish
>Manco is a spanish word. It means one-handed and is an insult to spanish speaking gamers... In the sense that you better be one handed, or you play so bad you must be one handed
I'm not sure how true that is though

Could also be a misspelling of manko, the Japanese word for pussy. Highly unlikely, though.

It means crippled, it’s inherited from Latin mancus
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/manco#Spanish

Basically offensive towards disabled people

>>10822378
I wonder if it’s just “manc” and the o is irrelevant

I know DQ3 won't let you name your character Erdrick/Roto/Loto for spoiler reasons.

MechWarrior 2 will chide you for using freebirth vulgarity if you enter fuck or shit as cheat codes, but other than that it doesn't really do anything.

SimCity 2000 (I think only the DOS version) will call you out for typing damn, darn, or heck, then spam a bunch of churches in your residential zones.

The IIGS H2G2 game tells you that it's "family entertainment, not video nasty" if you tell the game to do anything rude. Like telling Arthur to fuck the passing microscopic space fleet the dog with the cheese sandwich ignored. Or telling him to fuck the dog. Or the sandwich, for that matter. Weirdly, when it comes to telling him to shove a dick-shaped object into one of his orifices, that's perfectly fine, but mostly because you wouldn't be able to understand the intercom otherwise.

Since when? Because "manco" has always been fine, in fact the spanish translation of the Silmarillion localizes "Beren One-Hand" as "Beren el manco".

It's probably "manko" as >>10822385 says.
>>
>>10825169
>DRINK!!
>>
>>10825353
Yeah those brits were definitely concerned with the 1 gamer at the time that even knew what manko meant back then. Strange how they didn't get anything like chinpo or kuso though, oversight I guess.
>>
>>10821156
No, as apparently we don't have the tech anymore.

The market was excellent, too.

In "La aventura original" (a Spanish adventure Spectrum game), if you write insults, the game will warn you to stop, and if you write them again, you get the game over screen.
In "Cozumel" (another Spanish adventure), if you write insults, the game will insult you back.
