Hey. Just want to start out by saying I'm super psyched this forum exists and seems to be pretty active happy

I just would like to use PROEdit25 to change the attributes & traits of a preferred AIM merc. Specifically Mallice.
Wanted to do this as I love his dialogue and character but not a fan of his melee specialization.

I've tried editing Malice to the desired stats in with PROEDIT JA2/Data-1.13/BinaryData & JA2/Data/BinaryData. Even the UB data foolishly. I Save then Export my changes which seem to be successful but when loading my save game or starting a new game the mercenary's stats remain unchanged :[

I've tried following the steps for the guide by user "Hastings" in SIRTECH CLASSICS » Jagged Alliance: Unfinished Business » Maps, Mods and Editors » Using PROEDIT. But unfortunately my JA2/Data-1.13/BinaryData only contains Prof.dat, and when changing filename to JA25prof.dat for editing as he recommends PROedit tells me "Prof.dat" cannot be found and doesn't load. My Data-1.13/BinaryData folder also does not contain Itmdsc25.dat or ITEMDESC.edt.

If anyone could tell me how to implement PROEDIT changes into my game I would appreciate that so much!! angel

Welcome to the Pit
Open JA2\Data-1.13\Tabledata\MercProfiles.xml with any plaintext-editor (NOT Word or such) and make your changes. Requires new game to apply.

Damn. Thanks so much for that super fast response Brot. Really appreciate it.
I have both MercProfiles.xml & MercProfiles.012017.xml. I will follow your steps exactly and try editing MercProfiles.xml now.
