    This app crashes every time I open it on my Xperia Z1. It isn't rooted, I've done multiple resets... If I want to use it, I have to uninstall and reinstall each time. Not exactly feasible.

    After some trial and error I finally got Planescape Torment working. However, as soon as I start the game, the skull moves to talk to me, then the game freezes. Audio still plays, and the cursor will move, but other graphics halt and the text box is transparent with no type in it. Please help? Device is Nexus 7 2012. Baldurs Gate 2 demo worked fine.

    This works very well for Baldur's gate 1 and 2 (Using with the trilogy mod and any other mods I have installed on windows) Currently playing them on my cheap Chinese copy tablet and its working perfectly.
