Testing of Apks with base APK not at splits/base-master.apk

I’m trying to test an application distributed in .apks file, and getting this error:

org.openqa.selenium.SessionNotCreatedException: Could not start a new session. Response code 500. Message: An unknown server-side error occurred while processing the command. Original error: splits/base-master.apk cannot be found in ‘/Users/sergiilysenko/nova/app/nova.apks’ bundle. Does the archive contain a valid application bundle?

In the .apks file, path of base apk is ./base.apk, but I did not see a way to redefine it yet. Are there any additional capabilities for that?

ask better developers to provide FULL apk file, not distributed via Google Play version
