    Wanted to ask whether it could be possible to hack the Valkyria Chronicles 3 and insert the co-op mode from the Valkryria Chronicles 2 - what do you think guys? Although I'm pretty sure that it won't be doable, but as I'm green in stuff like this, thought that I'll ask more experienced people.

    The co-op mode wasn't added for a reason, so I really doubt it... REALLY DOUBT IT... (I could give some examples like ClaDun x2.)

    I have not played the co-op here so I am going off a few reviews. Even if you could twist VC3 multiplayer to your own ends (often far nicer than having to make your own network code) I doubt it would be an easy hack to pull off, indeed I would probably look to backporting maps and methods to the earlier title before I did. As VC3 seems to lack multiplayer of any kind you do not have that option either so you get to have some real fun.

    The VC2 co-op seems to amount to "import characters and take turns" so you do have some options. My first thoughts would be to kick it kind of PC style with a kaillera type thing, maybe backed with some cheats to allow character imports (if indeed it is different enough to warrant the effort -- the progression seems to be more story/fixed for this one so it might not be). You would want to find some way to transmit a screen around and get commands back over a network. Not great for active games but turn based should be OK. I would probably use the TV out options of a PSP rather than network for screen grabs and then network for the controls before playing with a soldering iron (though it is a good option).

    if the other option still is "just pass the controller" then you might have a harder sell if you need to put a team together.
