True ...
But you didnt "hack" anything ... you simply opened a file and changed single value. wink

Yup ...
And that is bcs that rest of the thing is build on that single piece of code ...

Just an example ...
So our characters dont end stuck in each other, game can have some kind of colission detection, that will control personal space for every member of our party ...
Its set and prepared for 4 characters ... you changed single value, nothing else ... sudently the colission detection mechanism have 6 inputs to work with, but can still only work with 4, since that is what it was written for.
Result? > Crash.

I dont think so ...
In older games you can easily open their code in notepad and rewrite anything you want ... this is basicaly what we do here, its just a little more complex ...
And we get nice UI so we dont have to read it whole line after line. laugh

Every experienced programator know what they are doing ...
Its not some magic box, where only creator can understand its content. wink

It would be easier for Larian to determine where colisions, causing Crashes can be tho ... i gues you wanted to say something like that.

And that is exactly that extra work i was talking about ...

Right now they have ... well, not perfectly, but adequately stable system that works ...
What would be their reason to invest money and resources to create another?
