How to Make a Balance Patch

Updated: Jul 22, 2023

Do you find that KKND2: Krossfire is not balanced? Then I'll show you how to create your own balance patch.

First we open KKND2: Krossfire and go to "Unit Editor" in the main menu. There we first create a new patch and choose a name. After confirming we end up in the editor. There you can now edit units, buildings and defense towers as you wish.

I'm going to make the Machine Gunner an almost invincible hero with tons of hitpoints and armor for this example. When you're done, dont forget to save your Patch.

Now you can select under "Unit Stats" your Patch. In the multiplayer game, your patch now works normally.

But if you want to play your patch in the campaign, there are only two options. The first is to start a multiplayer Match with your patch, Select it under "Unit Stats. it doesn't matter if you play against the AI or against a player. In the game you have to quit the game immediately and go back

to the main menu. If you now start a campaign or load a campaign mission, You will see that your patch also works here. If you exit the game and reopen it, The effect is gone. Thats the trick. This option was intentionally implemented by the developers.

The second option is to change the target of the .exe as a first step, create a shortcut to kknd.exe for example on your desktop. Then open the context menu with the right mouse button and

select Properties. In this example i named my shortcut "Balance". Now we simply write the addition -stats in the "Target" column and behind it the name of our balance patch.

Since the patch is called Survivor in my example, the addition is -stats Survivor

In the picture on the right you can see exactly what it has to look like to make it work. If you now start this shortcut, your patch will always be executed.

You can find your patch in the KKND2: Krossfire Directory under C:/Games/KKND Krossfire/UCONFIG

As you can see, this hero can take quite a beating before he dies. I increased the armour and hitpoints but set the weapon range to 0 so he can withstand a lot but not shoot. make sure that every value makes sense. That was all there is to know about it.

Unfortunately there is nothing to download this time. but if you have created a patch and want to publish it, feel free to contact me.
