    I tried playing Asphalt, but no matter what, it takes a 90 degree right turn, and nothing stops it. I tried Supersonic, and the same thing happens. I need help

    Did you read through the threads Steffes linked to you earlier? There's a known difference between the OG Touchpad and the Go in that the hardware accelerometer is preset with a 90-deg diference. Don't remember how/if it was resolved, but I'm sure it's in those discussions.

    His super doctor fixed that I thought. I don't have an accel... game to test.

    Ha! I'm not buying a $5 game that might be broken. But would happily test an app if there were a way...

    Update 1: It's 99c but I see Asphalt 5 is free for a demo. I'll check it out.

    Update 2: Asphalt 5 won't load and I don't like racing games so...I'm out. Sounds silly but I'll hang on to my 99c.

    Update 3: I tested Ground effect free but it wouldn't rotate correctly to play.

    I do not have Asphalt installed to test... it might be an application API thinking it is on a Touchpad vs the Go.

    Update: installed Asphalt5 from my Phone to Go it works (a little dark), but worked, installed NFU again it worked but was a little dark, installed Range of Thunder (1st version no longer in App Catalog), it has the 90 degree issue crashed car into right...

    So unless the game is designed to handle the Go's rotation difference, then there will be issues with some games and their rotation.

    There might be tricks to make the Go more compatible via changing the metadata.json to only {"version":1,"devices":[101]}

    You can get the file from my Box account here https://app.box.com/s/ehfgjxuqdua6pnihoivv

    Then all you have to do is edit it with a text editor and then drop it into /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/"name of the game folder"/

    OK, I dropped in the file with Internalz, but when I tried to play the game, it squeezed it into portrait mode.

    I'm running John's supered doctor for the Go. I installed Ground Effect (another accel game) and loaded it up. It displayed in protrait and when holding it in portrait it kept turning left. Holding it regular (center button down) it drove straight (albeit hard to steer since it was still in portrait mode). I dropped my metadata.json file into the directory for the game and reloaded it. Displays perfectly and accel works great!

    Alright so I bit the bullet and tested out Asphalt 6. I thought it was broken because accel didn't do anything. Well duh it was set to tap steering. Without using the metadata.json file I loaded the app, enabled accel steering, and wala it worked perfectly. Long story short, super meta-doctor for the win.

    I tried putting the metadata.json in the directory, but the accel problem persists

    3.0.4 because I'm going to wait until the carrier apps are added to the Meta Doctor

    You can try changing the 101 in the metadata.json file to 601 using your favorite text editor but without the correct doctor it probably won't help. A lot of apps just weren't updated like they would have needed to be for the Go since it wasn't officially released.

    What carrier apps do you need? You might as well just get the super doctor and manually add the apps from backup.

    Is that like Netstat on Preware...? (Although I'm not sure Netstat is okay on the Go either.)

    Is it possible the Asphalt 6 on the Dev App Catalog would work fine on the Go?
