This article covers the layout of the file; for the default contents, see diffsettings.2da (contents).

The diffsettings.2da file is the .2da that defines the effects of the difficulty setting. It differs from most .2da files in that both the columns and the rows have special meanings.

Columns of diffsettings.2da
