Resolution: invalid
Status: newpending

Thanks for your report! I am not able to load your save game due to some script mismatches, but navigating to the point indicated in your before.png, it is completely normal for Torin to disappear, since he is walking behind a rock. Is there some other reason why you think this is broken?

comment:3 by csnover, 2 years ago

After messing with scripts a little bit more I was able to load your save game and see that Torin disappears immediately on click, not just when walking behind the rock.

I strongly suspect that this was a bug in the original game that was fixed by the official Torin patch from Sierra. Without the patch, Torin is not completable, so you really need to apply it anyway. Unfortunately, this will invalidate your save games. (I have a pending patch to warn loudly whenever someone starts Torin with known bad script files so other users don’t get caught in this trap, but it is not quite ready yet.)

Please let me know if this problem still happens once you have applied the patch from Sierra and replayed the game to this point.

I was able to complete the game with that version. Maybe you want to update the testing sheet so it says that further testing is needed?

Lets just open up a new issue if this item becomes a problem again on the patched Torin game.
