The man with the silver coin

Hi everyone,

I have a question about the the side quest: the man with the silver coin.
After you have followed the man/leader u have to confront him.
I failed to follow discreetly yet the mission continues.
The yellow mark appears above the leader his head, but when i reach speaking range it dissapears and i remain unable to speak to the man.
When i leave him the mark returns.
What am i doing wrong? Or is this is a bug which can be fixed?


Same issue here. Anyone knows?


If you fail to follow him discreetly, it should start a dialog then a fight when you reach him behind the casern.

Could you send us your save file? You should find it here C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\GreedFall using your File Explorer. We recommend making a manual save (with this type of name: save_xx-xx-2019_09-53-26.fsav) and sending it instead of sending an autosave file.

You can send the files to

Sorry you’re experiencing issues with the game.

Best Regards.

Is there a fix for this or do I have to just go to a previous save file? Btw I’m playing in xbone.

I played this quest tonight.
No matter if I sneaked successfully or not the scene always ended behind the wooden fences. No matter what I did I had to kill him to progress. I don't even know if there is another option to be honest.
