'One basic principal you need to understand to edit this file effectively is that the multiplier values in most
of the columns work on the premise that 100% of an item's value in either the armor.txt, weapons.txt or misc.txt
file is represented by the value 1024. For instance a value of 768 would mean just 75% of the item's value while
2048 would be 200% (twice it's regular value)' -Mordini




Example (v1.09):


At the start of Act 2, Fara will sell you a regular crossbow for 2345 gold right? Column C in npc.txt for Fara is 1024
which is 100% so we know that 2345 is 100% of the crossbow's value in weapons.txt. If you then changed you mind, you could
sell it back to her for half it's actual value (512 in Column B = 50%). Once you kill Radament and visit Atma this sets
off quest flag A (Column E in npc.txt) which makes all of the act 2 vendors suddenly get very generous. With your latest
spoils, you decide that the crossbow was a good idea in the first place and buy it back from Fara which now only costs
2111 because Fara is now selling all her wares at 90% of their regular value (922 in Column G) once the flag is set.
