    There are cheat codes and patches that allow you to use the D-Pad and buttons.

    Wasn't there a hack/patch so you could use the D-Pad instead of the stylus?
    Edit: Beaten.

    For the record, I thought Spirit Tracks was a lot better than Phantom Hourglass. It has a somewhat better story, way better dungeon designs, and I liked the items and music a lot better. PH doesn't have enough music variety. If I remember right, every dungeon in PH has the same music, and it's the farthest thing from catchy.

    I tried the dpad hack but it was horrible! I mean, if you run in a lot of directions it can end in a sword swing or something [​IMG]

    Same here. I tried the Hack as well (the original and the one with all the movement hacks) and it was alright but def not playable to the point where you could beat the game.

    I never really understood what was so bad about the stylus controls, I found them to be near perfect.

    Same here. Maybe somersaults/barrelrolls were little difficult on PH but they fixed it on ST. Left/Righ buttons for items and menu, Up for map, Select for some stuff and most importantly L for item use. There simply can't be simplier controls!

    Phantom Hourglass was the second and last game I bought for my DS, and I loved it. The stylus controls kinda bugged me at first, but they were so good and easy to use that they eventually grew on me.

    If you give it a chance, you'll like it. It's just one of those things that makes the game what it is.
