At least for SCI16 games we had to disable saving from the ScummVM menu, because sometimes saving is not acceptable for the scripts and in case you create a save and restore it, game state will be broken.

OK. If feasible, a GUI clue or tip might be helpful. I only reported this because I was unfamiliar with Torin Passage, so I didn't discover the auto-hiding in-game menubar for an embarrassing period of time, and the usual Sierra F5/F7 has no effect in that game. So I was wondering about the greyed out save for some time.

As far as I know, nobody has looked to see if there is a way to enable the save game button in the ScummVM menu in SCI32, so I am converting this ticket into an enhancement request to see if it is possible to safely enable the feature.

Bug #10197 is a duplicate of this bug, but limited to Shivers 1 only. Since it has some further notes on it, I am leaving it open.

Unfortunately, this is not possible because this leads to bad engine state as the scripts are governing the process.
