Backer Heroes from the Stage Coach:
There are 300 heroes you can summon as you access the Stage Coach ahead of your 
next adventure. Start by visiting the Stage Coach, and press ENTER to initiate 
a search. Enter a specific hero name and you can choose a corresponding class. 
To recruit heroes, you'll need to know the information that summons them. 
You can find that information within the game's directory that installs on 
Steam (by default, the file path is ...

Open the file with a program such as Notepad and you'll see a lot of 
gobbledygook. Among that, look for grouped occurrences of three key 
phrases: hero_class, hero_name, and backer_name. You can enter the text
that appears immediately before hero_name to summon a particular hero.
Unfortunately, the class of the hero you summon may not be useful to 
you, so you'll want to pay attention to additional information. Look 
between hero_class and backer_name to see apparently random letters 
and symbols that actually will let you know which class you are choosing.
Below, for your reference, you'll find a list of the available 
combinations and the corresponding hero class.

vba - Abomination
_ba - Arbalest
|Oba - Bounty Hunter 
gFba - Crusader 
ba - Grave Robber 
ba - Hellion 
ۭ|ba - Highwayman 
Program Files (x86)->Steam->steamapps->common->DarkestDungeon. 
  Now select the "heroes" folder.
* Here you can see all of the hero files. For this guide we will be changing up the 
  crusader a little bit.

You'll also be glad to know that this method works for ALL of the hero files.

-=Editing the Game Files=-
* Now that we've found the files lets dive right into it! 
* Select the "" file, from here you'll need notepad++ to edit the file.
* But first make sure to copy the original file somewhere on your computer! 
* Copy and paste the original "" file somewhere, anywhere on your PC.

I recommend creating another folder on your desktop, and copypasting the original file 
into it. This is so that should you want to make the game normal again, you can simply 
move and replace the original over the edited one.

Now that you've copied the original file, it's time to get into changing the game! 
Here's where you need Notepad++. Right-click on the .info.darkest file and select the 
"edit with Notepad++ " option.

Once you're in you'll be met with this beautiful T H I C C chunk of text, but don't be 
The reason why there are a lot of repeats is because of leveling. The first lines of each 
section represent the hero at, say, level 0. 
And then it scales upwards (i.e. lvl 2, lvl 3, lvl4, lvl5, etc.). 

I've gone and highlighted the different sections in red for you in hopes that things might 
be easier. Anyway, moving on:

So if you want to change up the damage your character deals, simply go to the first section 
highlighted, and change the ".dmg 6 12" to ".dmg x x" 

x being any number you want. The reason there are two numbers is so that the damage varies 
(e.g. your character hits stuff with a damage of 6-12.). If you don't want to vary damage, 
simply double the digits, for example: ".dmg 500 500".

WARNING: Spacing is SUPER important, so make sure all of your spaces are correct!

For attack and defense percentages, they essentially act as mulitpliers for stats. 
Play around with them, the higher the percentage (you can go over 100% if you want) the 
stronger the damage!

The .dmg -50% means that the damage your character ability deals will be reduced by 50%, 
so if you don't want a reduction put it to 0%. Or possibly increase it... Although I 
would not recommend that as I personally have not tried it.

If you want to change where the heroes can hit, simply edit the ".launch" and ".target" 
numbers to "4321" and "1234" or whatever you want it to be.

The numbers represent the position the characters can be in in order to use their abilities. 
So by changing combat skill smite's ".launch" to 4321, it will allow the crusader to be in 
any position to use that ability.

For .targets, the "~" sign is the multiple strike capability. So by adding "~1234" to an 
ability, you're allowing the hero to be able to strike all 4 enemies with the ability.

WARNING: Once again, ORDER IS IMPORTANT. Do NOT change .launch and .target's ordering around
(Keep .launch's "4321" like that, and .target's "1234" just like that) otherwise you will 
jack your game up.

Now that you've edited your files, save it (file > save) and you're set! Exit the editor 
and play the game! It should work instantly so there's no need to start a new game.
