with the newest daily build from 8.6. the game don't crash right after intro anymore. now when i skip the intro, it goes to the menu. before that, when i skipped the intro, it went straight to the game and crashed right after this. now, like i wrote, the crash right after the game starts is gone, but in the game after ca. 1-2minutes, the game crashes to desktop without a error message. tried it 4 times, and always crashed after the same time between 1-2 minutes in the game. in the log, there is no error message.

Interesting, for me th game still goes directly into the game instead of the menu when skipping the intro. I have tested it with the current daily build 2.6.0pre26-gdac4ba3e1d9 on macOS 12.4.

I could avoid the crash after 1 - 2 minutes by adjusting the audio options of the game in ScummVM.
When I override global audio settings and set "Text and speech" to Subtitles or both ScummVM doesn't crash anymore, setting it to Speech crashes ScummVM again.
This also fixes a crash for me regarding the intro sequence, see ticket #13539

I think after 1-2 minutes the feeding cutscene would start and that crashes the game at least for me when the "Text and Speech" setting is set to Speech.

i can confirm, if i set to text and speech, the game don't crash after 1-2 minutes in the game. but i can not go back to speech only. when i switch back to speech only in the scummvm game menu and go in the game, the text is also there. it activates the text again automaticly. and in the game menu in scummvm, text and speech is again selected.
the next problem is, but i think this is already known, there are no german, for example, ÄÖÜ letters in the german verrsion of the game.

The crash was caused by the text handling code, which was trying to access uninitialized memory.

Playing with speech only should be working now. Please check with a daily ScummVM version
