And Shadow wants to personally thank all the community members for their continued feedback and support!
YOU MUST Hex Edit your BL2.exe to get the console enabled…it’s easy, don’t worry but absolutely make certain you save a clean copy of your BL2.exe and DISABLE ANY AV to include and especially Windows Defender BEFORE Hex Editing, You can re-enble your AV stuff after install and a reboot so everything will be back to normal. Directions for Hex Editing Here: Go to the 1:50 mark of the video for the Hex Editing tutorial:

Perfect for those that “don’t like this buff” or “don’t like that change,” Set the patch to run the way YOU want!
Beginning of original post: I have run this by the mods to insure we are OK with this. They have agreed as long as we:
Discuss patch as a PC only patch (unfortunately, discussing it as a console patch breaks ToS with Microsoft and Sony)
Realize TOTALLY that GB had NOTHING to do with this effort and take NO RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER
Comments are to provide KNOWLEDGE, HELP and INPUT of any problems and SUGGESTIONS to the authors for improvement.
We keep this professional…comments like “this sucks for console owners” are meaningless, the situation is what it is.
As in all patches of this nature, the author takes NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage you do to your game. I have experienced ZERO PROBLEMS of any sort, but the old truism is in effect. BACK UP!
OK, with that in mind, I have already mentioned the locations of the proper files above.
It takes just a wee bit of patience to install it but once done you have the OPTION to play with the patch active or totally normal gameplay. It does not harm game files in any fashion from my testing and I applaud the effort! It is REALLY QUITE CLEVER. The Author (shadowevil…a.k.a. Craig) has done a VERY careful job of ENHANCING the game and not breaking it with a bunch of OP Evil Smasher like crap. He has made 100 changes. Things like making the Bearcat actually a decent weapon and buffing the Cobra so it can hang at the games highest levels. Some mods are adjusted slightly dropping terrible skills and adding those skills we always dreamed of. Has he made anything OP? Not so far from the little I have tested. Has he made MUCH of the stuff we all complained about for years disappear? YES! The patch adds VARIETY to the game…builds can change…weapons can change AND still be effective at OP8. One of the author’s main themes was to improve Pearls and Seraphs to the point that you would WANT these items of equipment…true rewards!!
The author says he plans to continue to refine and add some additional changes and asks for input. This is a great opportunity to provide!
Have at it Ladies and Gentleman.
