I've tested on Windows 10 x64, with a recent development build of 2.7.0git and also the release build for 2.6.0 and I cannot reproduce the null pointer issue. I can watch the full intro and get to a controllable player mode, walk around and examine stuff around the apartment, or skip the intro and do the same. (there might be a minor overlay issue with the "60 hours earlier" message)

My log output is pretty much identical with yours up to (and including) the warning line:

WARNING: channel 2 - same clip assigned

MD5 hash and file size for resonance.exe match too.
The only line that is slightly different for me is

WARNING: FSNode::createDirectory: './//.' already exists!

I can't reproduce this either, I have the same setup (Win10, GOG version). Could you please tell us your OS version?

Also, could you please tell us the MD5 of the entire executable (the detector just uses a small part of it for speed reasons) ? If you can use a command prompt, you can do it directly using scummvm:

scummvm.exe --md5 --md5-path="[put your install directory here]\Resonance.exe"

Or you can use one of the many tools available online.

I checked on my old Win7 PC, issue is same.
But the command above is give different md5 than in a logs:

I have the same md5 on my system (gog version 2.3), so it should be fine.

e:/gog games/resonance/resonance.exe: 7bbebe1e20d268df6b287e37b7cfada4, 850643390 bytes

Could you do the same for the audio.vox and speech.vox files, please? The checksums should be

e:/gog games/resonance/audio.vox: 1f454f61b9906c4ea0955f014582e4d5, 49934428 bytes

Ok, is my mistake. audio.vox was missing from my directory.
Is strange engine just fail after game intro is finished, but if I test these from gog install not just from scummvm I should notice no music on title screen.

I close the ticket.
