Not sure this will actually help but it may give a clue as to how to
patch the app you are trying to run.

A few days ago there was a commit to blender that enabled the use of
software opengl render on OSX when older cards are in place that don't
support the required openGL version.

I don't know much about GL programming but it sounds like the app can
choose if GL provides the required features (or gl version?) to run
which may include hardware acceleration, this appears to be decided at
the time the GLContext is created.
