Dark_Elf's 4x Skills 4x Experience for DS2 and Broken World

this mod -
1. advances a party member 5 or more levels behind main character level instantly to the main character's level minus 1 when they are added to the party. Original the code only advanced them if they were 20 or more levels behind and they would level to 2 levels below main character. example - your character is level 32 and Vix is level 25 in the inn, he should come out of inn join party as level 31 now.
2. 4x the experience you and your party receive from killing a monster. It also 1/4 the penalty for killing something more than 4 levels lower or higher than you. (This is to further help your lower level party members catch up.)
3. gives 4 skill points on level up

All the henchmen have the normal number of skills when first found or gotten back from the inn, but they do get and keep the bonus skills when they level while in the party.

2x can be made by tweaking

2x can be made by tweaking the 4x, maybe I will find time to change it someday


Do you have a 2x version because 4x seems a bit too much boost.
