Not Solved Crash on beginning new game

Hello! I'm looking forward to playing your game, but I'm having a little problem. I'm sure everyone is being very demanding right now, so please don't stress about it! Everything will be okay in due time. I'm not in a hurry.

Anyway, I installed the Mac version of the game using GOG Galaxy, and it loads to the start menu just fine, but crashes when I try to begin a new game. Actually, it produces an error dialog and minimizes itself, but then crashes when I click 'okay'.

GOG Galaxy has a feature to verify & repair its installation of a game, so I used that on Soma and it reported no problems, and the error and crash are the same as before.

I've attached the hpl.log and a screenshot.

I think the problem may have something to do with the way GOG creates a launcher application bundle that it puts the game inside of, which might be leading to a situation where the game is unable to find things where it expects them to be. I'm going to play around with it and see if I can fix it.


EDIT: Okay, so I should have read other people's posts first. It is some kind of GOG thing. Not the first time, either… GOG's quality assurance, on the Mac at least, kind of sucks.
