What do you mean by conflicts?  I see a bunch of undeclared functions
here.  Just look at the compiler messages and fix the problems one by one.

Here is missing a ``.h`` suffix.

Where is `nscenes` coming from?  And you should pay attention how the
types are declared.  You assign `char ***` return value from
`Memory2DStr()` to `unsigned char ***` typed `arr_scenes`.

C++ comments are not allowed in ANSI C.  Some compilers understand them
but if you want to write portable code you should steer clear of them.

The declaration of `fprintf()` lives in `stdio.h`.
