Jagged Alliance: Back in Action Cheats
Then follow the poster above instructions on how to extract.
From there reading around will let you work how/what to edit.
Just done it myself so will try to post back here if you get stuck
Apparently having more than 5 traits causes the game to crash (not tested this myself)

He spells it out pretty well in the first post.
And you do not need the jark program, just download the already converted files from the link he provides and create a configs folder in your game directory, mine is programfiles(86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/jabia/bin_win32/new folder I created called configs.
Then with a text editor, (notepad) you can change the values and save the file and the game will use those files instead of the default ones.
It took me all of 2 minutes to register on the site and download the files.
AVG says it's a safe site.

The v1.13 update makes some pretty radical changes to game play options and I suspect that previously modded txt files are no longer read properly by the game.
I also downloaded the jark program to try to generate new txt files to mod that would be compatible with v1.13, but evidently I am not using the program correctly. When I click "Read from Memory" I simply get a line called "processes". So, how you get mod-able txt files from jark is not clear to me.Any insights on this would be appreciated.
So, if anyone has had success modding v1.13, please give me a clue.

Use pak_magick.exe to unpack configs_win32.pak.crypt You will get all the txt files and you will be able to modify them.
