How to make custom conversations with the demons
By gypsy.crusader.1989
In this guide, I'll show you how to make custom conversations with the demons. This guide really applies to anything on the game that includes text, so you can also change the text on buttons, e.g. "NEW GAME" etc.

Get a program to open .json files
You need a program that is able to view and edit .json files. On Windows, Notepad is able to do that. However, I use Notepad++[notepad-plus-plus.org] to view, edit, and create .json files, but I bet you'll survive with Notepad too.
Find the files
The direct route to the folder is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Helltaker\local
.
You can also access the folder directly from the Steam by right-clicking the game, Manage > Browse local files:














And from there, open the folder "local". You should have these files:
Edit the files
Now, you can choose a file to edit. Here's what the exact files are used for:
---Level 1--- 1.json: Pandemonica, the Tired Demon 1h.json: Beelzebub, the Great Fly (Life Advice) ---Level 2--- 2.json: Modeus, the Lustful Demon 2h.json: Pandemonica, the Tired Demon (LA) ---Level 3--- 3.json: Cerberus, the Triple Demon 3h.json: Modeus, the Lustful Demon / Pandemonica, the Tired Demon (LA) ---Level 4--- 4.json: Malina, the Sour Demon 4h.json: Pandemonica, the Tired demon / Cerberus, the Triple Demon (LA) ---Level 5--- 5.json: Zdrada, the B!tch Demon 5h.json: Malina, the Sour Demon / Cerberus, the Triple Demon (LA) ---Level 6--- 6.json: Azazel, the Curious Angel 6h.json: Zdrada, the B!tch Demon / Malina, the Sour Demon / Pandemonica, the Tired Demon (LA) ---Level 7--- 7.json: Justice, the Awesome Demon 7h.json: Azazel, the Curious Angel / Modeus, the Lustful Demon (LA) ---Level 8--- 8.json: Lucifer, the CEO of Hell ---Level 9--- 9.json: ??? / Judgement, the High Prosecutor 9_1.json: Judgement, the High Prosecutor, Pandemonica / the Tired Demon Cerberus, the Triple Demon / Lucifer, the CEO of Hell 9_2.json: Judgement, the High Prosecutor / Lucifer, the CEO of Hell / Justice, the Awesome Demon / Azazel, the Curious Angel 9_3.json: Judgement, the High Prosecutor / Modeus, the Lustful Demon / Malina, the Sour Demon / Zdrada, the B!tch Demon 9_4.json: Judgement, the High Prosecutor 9h.json: Lucifer, the CEO of Hell / Judgement, the High Prosecutor (LA) ---Level 10--- 10.json: Story 10_az.json: Azazel, the Curious Angel / Helltaker 10_ce.json: Cerberus, the Triple Demon / Helltaker 10_ed.json: Police / Helltaker 10_ju.json: Justice, the Awesome Demon / Helltaker 10_lu.json: Lucifer, the CEO of Hell / Helltaker 10_ma.json: Malina, the Sour Demon / Helltaker 10_mo.json: Modeus, the Lustful Demon / Helltaker 10_pm.json: Pandemonica, the Tired Demon / Pandemonica, the Sadistic Demon / Helltaker 10_xx.json: Judgement, the High Prosecutor / Helltaker 10_zd.json: Zdrada, the B!tch Demon / Helltaker 11.json: Lucifer, the CEO of Hell / Justice, the Awesome Demon / Beelzebub, theGreat Fly / Helltaker (Portal) 11_1.json: Beelzebub, the Great Fly (Portal) ---Main menu, settings, credits--- m.json: Settings, menu, credits, GUI texts m1.json: Beelzebub, the Great Fly, main menu buttons, story m2.json: Chapters
These files include the text that gets monitored into the game directly from the file. You can edit literally anything inside.

Some notes:
  • Deleting a file will softlock the game as soon as you reach the dialogue of the deleted file
  • Adding any extra lines doesn't have any effect in-game (not any extra dialogs)
  • The game doesn't support all Unicode characters
  • Remember to save the files as soon as you're done editing them
  • In case you want all the files to return to their original state and get back the files you've deleted, in Steam right-click Helltaker > Properties > Local files > Verify integrity of game files
That's it
This could be benefited to localize the game in your native language. Or for the memes. Whatever that comes to your mind.
