Description
Reworks some of the Skirmisher's abilities and fixes a pretty bad bug too:

Specifically:

Fixes a bug with Battle Lord causing it to only proc on the first two actions on the enemy turn, and then ignoring the rest. (This mod's config ini includes an option to disable all the rest below if you want to.)

Reflex is now always active once selected: you can always earn an action point every time a Skirmisher is shot at.

Parkour now provides a movement action point instead of being a 5% chance for a standard one: this means that a Skirmisher can relocate with a blue move and still shoot twice. (With the grapple, this allows for major relocations if needed.)

Also replaces the charges of Interrupt, Whiplash, and Battlelord with Cooldowns. Interrupt is three turns, Whiplash and Battlelord are five.

Also sets the Ionic Ripjack's stun chance to 25% instead of always: it was insanely strong and wildly out of place to how the game handles stun effects XCOM can apply.

Localization is not affected by the toggle: you need to manually delete the included .int file of the mod.

Very nice mod, it really makes the skirmisher relevant but not OP, ty.

@yes_commander: what is RPGO?

@yes_commander: I've been using this mod for awhile and it worked fine, but I just downloaded RPGO and this mod has stopped working, so I'd say that's the problem. As for a fix... well, that's what I came here for too.

Are there any known incompatibilities? I'm running this but not seeing the changes. My suspicion is that it doesn't work with RPGO, but I'm not qualified to speak with any authority on the matter. Is there anything I might be able to do on my end to force the game to acknowledge the changes? Is a compatibility update feasible (if that happens to be the case)?

Is the stun working in TLP?

Or simply just the parkour change

@shavy:
Working as intended:
Also sets the Ionic Ripjack's stun chance to 25% instead of always: it was insanely strong and wildly out of place to how the game handles stun effects XCOM can apply.

theres a bug where the ionic rip jack doesnt always stun it like stuns 1 out of 4 times can you please fix other than that this mod is awesome :)

@Daemonjax, the only ability I find OP is Parkour always giving the Skirmisher 3 moves. Vanilla is 5%, I think 50% would be more balanced.
