XCOM 2 – Example Config File Edits (More Skill Events Mod / WotC)

Example Config File Edits

For anyone not 100% familiar with editing config files, here’s a full example of a config file that reduces the chance of Flanking Shot to 20% and increases the Ability Points gained from Invader Killed to 2. I hope this is helpful.]

Config File Location

Your config file will be located in your Steam install directory.

Something like:

  • Program Files\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\3043880113\Config

Open the file XComGameCore.ini in that directory with any text editor.

Make changes and save the file.

Edits Made for this Example

  • The 2 lines in the Flanking Shot section labeled Chance are uncommented (leading semi-colon removed).
  • The value of the line +Chance in the Flanking Shot section is decreased to 20 while the value for the line -Chance remains 45. This tells your game environment to remove the base game’s value of 45 for Chance and replace it with the Mod’s value of 20. If you wanted to additionally change the Number of Points Awarded for Flanking Shot, you’d need to uncomment the 2 lines for NumPointsAwarded in the Flanking Shot section and change the value of the line +NumPointsAwarded=1.
  • The value for the line +NumPointsAwarded in the Invader Killed section is increased to 2.

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there. It's a true blessing when your passion, hobby, and job combine into something one. My favorite console is the Nintendo Switch. I think you can all guess why. Because I just bought a Steam Deck. I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…
