About this mod

A mod that tries to balance fist fights events and minigames.

Permissions and credits
Ever wish fist fights weren't so ridiculously imbalanced, especially at high difficulty, where the opponents can defeat you in 2 hits and you must hit them like 30 times to win? C'mon, a witcher who destroys giant beasts and monsters doesn't get beaten that easily by commoners. Say no more! Introducing "Improved Fist Fights"! With this mod, I try to balance fist fights for all difficulty settings, by tweaking Geralt's HP and damage during the fights.

Minigame fist fights will now be a lot shorter (cause who wants to play some lame fist fights when we have Gwent and adventuring to do!). Opponents will need about 9-13 hits to beat Geralt, while he'll need 8-14 hits to win, based on difficulty settings (tested on NG and NG+ with Enemy Upscale on; YMMV). Here are some limited data during my testing:

Obviously, I didn't test every single fist fights in the game (event or not), so please let me know if you find any bugs. Or you find something that needs improvement?

What is changed:

Event FistFights (the forced kind like during Triss's masquerade quest):
NPC's attack: same as vanilla.
Geralt's attack:
matches NPC's fist base attack value (changed from vanilla 5 to 50).
Geralt's HP: same as vanilla. (I believe you use your normal HP during event fist fight, and it's considered a normal enemy battle.)

Minigame FistFights (the one where you challenge people):
NPC's attack:
same as vanilla.
Geralt's attack: 2x stronger (changed from vanilla 150 to 300).
Geralt's HP: variable and greatly increased, based on game difficulty (no longer just fixed 2000 like vanilla).

(Don't worry, the HP will revert to normal after the fist fight is done.)

Tested on GOG GOTY 1.31. Working with NG and NG+. Compatible with FCR3_2 mod.
