Better Combat Enhanced Update

UPDATED TO PATCH 1.12


Better combat enhanced (BCE) is a popular mod that adjusts combat difficulty curve of the Witcher 3 game. Unfortunately the author of the mod has stopped updating it, making the mod incompatible with the new patch (1.10) and presumably future expansions. The modBCEm is a maintenance fork of the BCE mod. The purpose is mainly to update the code to keep up with the main game and keep fixing bugs.

The mod is currently maintained by JimmyJr.

What's in this mod (BCEm)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
* It implemented all original BCE features.
* It is compatible with 1.12 patch.
* It does not require a new game restart in order to switch from vanilla game playthrough.
* It uses the standard modKit format.
* It fixed many bugs existed in BCE.

Installation
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Unzip and copy the modBCEm folder into the [Witcher3 main folder]/Mods/ (create if not exist). You do not need to install the original BCE in order to use BCEm. You also don't need to uninstall original BCE if you already applied patch 1.10.

* (Recommended) Run Script Merger (by AnotherSymbiote, available in NexusMods) to check for, and resolve any conflicts with other mods you might be using.

Important Note: If you have script compilation errors, It's most likely due to this:

Some Witcher 3 versions/editions/etc do not have that specified file. Check your game installation for that file, if it's not there, create it, as instructed in the reddit post (pay attention to the last line). This is a known issues that affects many mods.

Uninstallation
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Delete the modBCEm mod and replace it with modBCEmUninstall (in optional file section). Load your savefile. Resave to a new slot. Done.
Afterwards you can delete 'modBCEmUninstall' from you Mods folder.

Bug reports
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Describe as much detail as possible and keep a backup savefile which we may need to reproduce the problem.
