if you don't want the other changes this modder made, only put his difficultyopt.2da file in your Override and don't put in the other .2da files then.
now i suggested this one, but the rest of you guys suggested Talchia's Hardcore mod.
the one i suggest alters the difficultyopt.2da by raising the multiplier. Talchia's mod instead alters k_ai_master script.
i have a question, what do they do differently to raise the difficulty? i know Talchia's raises enemy attributes and hitpoints in 3 increments throughout the game, but does n e 1 know how the altered difficultyopt.2da raises the difficulty?
