Blutrol Compatibility list (iCade with non-iCade Games)

In case you didnt know blutrol is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to map iCade buttons to touch screen presses so you can play virtual button games with iCade or iControlPad or similar.
Since the release of blutrol I have seen a few posts on other forums and some here about compatibility. So lets start one up and let those who are interested know what works, and what doesnt work and any tricks to make something work better. It can also override iCade compatible games profiles so you can replace the layout with your own (probably more useful for controllers that emulate iCade).

In the current release the mapping doesnt work too well with floating dpads as it registers a touch rather than a drag from center, so the touch will usually create a center and then be unable to move in that direction, hopefully a fix is in progress.
