At time of writing this the edit was tested and working for me. I recommend creating a backup of the file you wish to edit in the event that it causes issues with your game. I am not responsible for issues that arise from the editing of your game files. In the event that you encounter an error, attempt to revert the changes or run a validation of your steam files.
