Yes, it's nice to be able to switch to some other app. I guess, it is already possible - run it in emulator on PC, MAC
There is only few people dealing with games, and there is plenty of games where can do some improvements - overall improvements, not only some obscure compatibility related.
It is just that it may be not easy at all - some patching may be not enough, but may need some serious rewrite of some sections. I find it strange to see this as compatibility issue. Mint even did not exist when game was released. Not even idea about how it will look.
Of course, if someone wants to deal with it, I will be happy to see it.
Famous Schrodinger's cat hypothetical experiment says that cat is dead or alive until we open box and see condition of poor animal, which deserved better logic. Cat is always in some certain state - regardless from is observer able or not to see what the state is.
