Master Malchir, when defeated, should drop the book of 'Tongue of Flames' in the original game, which does not happen under the Pentagram or Scummvm engine.

Thanks for adding the bug. I knew this wasn't working but I hadn't gotten around to investigating. I think that the book is still in a nearby chest so you can still complete the game with this bug, but it's still kind of annoying.

Thank you for the prompt interest, mduggan.

The book you've mentioned in a nearby chest is entitled 'The Destruction of the Temple', which is different from the book 'Tongue of Flames'. This book tells the player a vital information that one should go into the big pentagram WITH THE TONGUE OF FLAME(blackrock) to free Pyros. I think this bug should be fixed for the normal walkthrough for this game.

Thanks for the extra info. I don't think I have a savegame close to that point - do you have a savegame you could attach close to before he attacks you?

Note to myself that treasure data probably needs update.. 041B MALCHIR should probably be drop 0120 GRIMOIRE quality 8 ("The Tongue of Flame").
