I can’t seem to install Full Force because it depends on “gsc.wildcat” or something….

I wouldn’t really call this “Compatibility Mode,” especially since it breaks on so many apps. Its really just lying to the system that this is a native iPad bundle for when it expands the nib files.

it didn’t work, the app is just in the corner of the screen and cannot play at all.
