    I like this game but so much immersion is lost on the top-down view... It is 3d anyway and half the time jumps down into the game.

    Ya reckon it would ever be possible for someone to reverse engineer PH, figure out the view functions and force it to always be 3rd person style (something like d-pad controls link, stylus controls view angle).. ? That would be awesome XD

    Or the ability to swap one to the other ..

    Probably not I guess but I can dream >.>

    More possible would be, that you would learn to programming, an do that yourself [​IMG]

    It is possible, but it's a lot harder to do than the d-pad hack..
    Should be easy for some nintendo programmer with access to the code [​IMG]

    It shouldn't be too much harder to get it in 3rd person, the major obstacle will be preventing crashes and such that occur because of it.

    The reason the top-down/slightly slanted 3D perspective is used is obviously because of the limited processing power of the DS hardware. Had the DS offered more graphical capability, naturally we would be using a more advanced style of view.

    Even if such a hack were possible, you could not change the fact that the game would only draw what would ordinarily be seen from the top-down perspective. In such case, if the camera were constantly slanted to give a more 3D feel, all you would see beyond the regular point-of-view perspective threshold is black space. Maybe white, depending on what Nintendo opted to go for with something they ensure you will never see.

    This is a silly idea, though interesting nonetheless, it's simply not possible.
