Dragon Age: Inquisition mod brings back Origin's isometric view

As many gamers are well aware, BioWare’s recently released Dragon Age: Inquisition is considered, by the majority of the gaming community, to be a great game.

However, no game is perfect, and in regards to the PC version of the game, many players of that particular iteration are also privy to the fact that the game has some issues. Putting aside Dragon Age: Inquisition on PC’s woefully wonky keyboard and mouse controls, the main culprit of many PC gamers’ frustration with the game stems from its dreadful “tactical view,” which has quite a few issues in and of itself.

When BioWare announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition would have a tactical view, many gamers were delighted. And yet, in execution, Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s "tactical view" was a disappointment in many players' eyes.

Many were expecting an isometric view in the vein of the PC version of Dragon Age: Origin's perspective, which many PC gamers considered to be the optimal manner in which to experience the game. Obviously, that is not the case, much to the dismay of gamers around the world.

Fortunately, an individual on /r/DragonAge by the name of “olegbl” managed to do the seemingly impossible, and somehow hacked Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s code to bring back the isometric perspective from Dragon Age: Origins that so many PC gamers know and love.

Just tried using this in my game, and it works surprisingly well. Gives a distinctly different feel to the experience for sure. Also, the scenic vistas are a bonus.

Looks good. Hope to see it further polished.

I think the camera pans out far enough most of the time, but I hope they include an option in an update so the camera doesn't automatically re-center on a party member when switching between them in the tactical view. That's the most annoying part, particularly when the battlefield is big.

I like the better status and positioning transparency of the tactical camera over Origins, so hopefully they can update in some usability improvements and make it better than Origins overall.

Yeah, apparently it's a bug (the auto-centering), but as someone already said, I hope it gets further improvements to it. It looks really good as it is.
