So I upgraded to the most recent 1.13 release recently, and spent hours making my personal changes to the xmls (mostly range adjustments - not a fan of pistols with a range of 10 paces... which is pretty much the same distance you can throw a dagger at someone with nearly 100% effectiveness)

So it takes a long time for me to adjust xmls to a new version. I haven't done so in a while, as a result.

Now that I have, I've noticed I can't seem to repair things to 100%. Some things get repaired, others don't. I can't figure it out at all. Was there some new change to the repair mechanics that I didn't see? I only modified the weapons.xml, the skill settings slightly, and of course the options.ini. But I didn't change anything related to repairs...

(PS: I freaking love all the work done with the 1.13 improvements, please don't read this post as disapproving)

Thanks for the INI advice on repairs. happy I'll look into that. Was driving me nuts.

I've known I can use broad stroke changes to alter ranges with the ini's as well, but I'm sort of OCD about making guns realistic. Even the 1.13 mods, while completely awesome, didn't really address the stupid ranges and damages, IMHO.

Can the settings be changed mid campain? Also does the replacable barrels work cant seem to change them on the guns Im using. Or do they just work for certain guns.

It is recommended not to change settings mid campaign. Some of them can be altered, depending on their impact in the game, for example the number of extra action points for the mercs. The in-game options can be changed but it's best not to change the INI options that have an impact on many game variants. You'll have to experiment to find the correct balance for your game. The choice is up to every individual really.

Concerning the barrel replacements, they do fit on light machineguns (LMG's). I tried them on assault rifles and it didn't work. LMG's are typically used on full auto fire modes, mostly for suppression purposes, therefore their barrels can overheat much faster than other weapons.
