I'm playing the game with a macbook and in one of the first quest of the game it is requested to use your own keyboard to write a FTTN (a number with a certain format)

I cannot insert the FTTN since my keyboard doesn't type the symbol "-" inside the mainframe terminal: another symbol appears on the game screen but is not accepted to go on with the story.

I'm blocked in the game for this reason...since I bought the game yesterday I'm quite frustrated.

I tried every single combination of symbols but I could not write "-" with my keyboard inside the game to go through. The keyboard is working normally in general as you can see.

Could Someone help me?
thanks

Same problem on Linux, I can type the dash, but no slash for the /HELP command. I remember having similar problems in the Blackwell series, but there it wasn't a game stopper.

I was having the same problem, and I've easily (although annoyingly) solved by quitting the game, changing my keyboard layout to an English one, and restarting the game. With an English layout the slash is located just left of the right Shift key.

@shaffog, I don't know what your problem could be since you seem to be located at the UK, but there's no actual need to manually enter any FTTN to carry on with the story. Just use the DNA samples and you're done.

I am having exactly the same issue on Linux too. Seems to be a problem with the WINE emulation.

I tried tha on Linux and didn't work. I guess the WINE emulation might be stuck with an specific keyboard map even if i change my actual keyboard layout.

Why do you mean by WINE emulation? Is this a WINE-bottled game? Being an Adventure Game Studio game, I was under the impression that its Linux version made use of the native AGS Linux interpreter... (I cannot confirm or deny my claim as I no longer have the game installed, though)

This is what Wadjet Eye Games told me. I am not sure if they are correct or not, but given the circumstances i chose to believe them.

OK, now you just made me look into it. :P

And I'm afraid Wadjet Eye Games are wrong. They either deliberately lied to you, or they know no better, but I can now guarantee you my GOG Linux copy of Resonance is indeed native and not a WINE bottle.

For once, the GOG page doesn't mention WINE at all, while pages for games that are WINE-bottled (like [url=http://www.gog.com/game/flatout]FlatOut, for instance), do.

Then, this is the start.sh script for Resonance and this one is FlatOut's. Notice the differences.

Finally, this is the output of executing the file command on Resonance.bin.x86 and Resonance.bin.x86_64, the 32-bit and 64-bit game binaries respectively:
Resonance.bin.x86: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, BuildID[sha1]=cdc33614fccbaaca572fed7cd1f883f82e8a7df6, stripped
Resonance.bin.x86_64: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, BuildID[sha1]=1e542f1c79ccfe66301d460b618388dc24ca81f9, stripped
As you can see, they're native alright. :)
I am not sure about what I am going to say, but maybe it is possible to copy-paste a character directly into the game.
Linux offers the feature of copying-on-select and pasting-on-middle-click. Since the AGS client in Linux is probably managed by X, I think it could be possible to copy-paste the right character selecting it outside the game and then using the middle-click in game to paste it.

Well they mention they didm't actually made the port, so probably they don't know better.
The game is definitely native, not using Wine or any other wrapper. I solved the prolematic part by compiling a local version of AGS using the latest sources from the official repository, replacing the original executable. Sound was crappy (PulseAudio support sucks in official AGS sources), but keyboard input was correct.

Mac build is likely using Wine (e.g. Primordia does) as there is no working AGS for current versions of OS X.
Under ubuntu I was able to change the keyboard layout on console via
> setxkbmap -layout us
and then start the game. May be Os x has some similar options.
I had the same problem (Linux + Canadian French keyboard layout)

Solution:
before starting the game:

setxkbmap -layout us

This can be automated when starting the game:
edit the start.sh file
eg:
gedit /home/<usename>/GOG\ Games/Resonance/start.sh

change the default() function to:
( in my case, I set it back to canadian french with "setxkbmap -layout ca" after the game is terminated )


default() {
setxkbmap -layout us
run_game
setxkbmap -layout ca
}

I was going to open a new thread but then I realised that I could resurrect this one as my problem is different but related.
I am stuck because the shift key on my keyboard has no effect in game. Changing the layout has no use, I will get the number 7 when trying to get a dash / anyway. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 32 and my laptop keyboard has a QWERTY Italian layout. An external USB keyboard is no problem solver either.
