***In Basement 1 I got a card item called Emperor VI or IV and when I used it it took me to a boss fight with Monstro. Upon beating him the entire game just instantly closed with no error message window or anything.

I beat the game on playthrough 2 (After getting the I Killed Mom achievement, first game where you have access to the womb) with Magdalene. Got the achievements The Cross and Judas' Fez. I quit the game and started it again later and lost all the progress made during that game. The secrets/unlocks I gained were reset, my mom kills went from 1 to 0, Judas is locked again, etc. If I start new games and kill my character off as soon as I can, quit and start it again it saves the death correctly in my stats.

I made it to level six "The Depths" and also died there, but the game over sheet was just white except for the Items I got, and then I went back to the title screen (had to click the button by memory since nothing was showing up) And everything was also white except "Start".

***On the map, where a shop was supposed to spawn(a oversized brown coin over-covering the square), a mini-boss character spawned instead but the shop icon is still there on the map. UPDATED: Happened twice now.

I think that is intentional sometimes. I've had this happen too but if you pay attention to the boss name its not one of the 7 deadly sin names and when you kill him the reward is a lot of coins.

I was fighting Monstro in Basement I, and I enabled an item that gave me a shield. Whenever Monstro jumped "on" me, it just pushed me aside. However, when I'm on the edge of the room, he pushed me off the entire game and I was stuck.

It's greed, which I'm pretty sure is one of the 7 sins.

[Cosmetic appearance bug concerning "Lord of the Pit" item]:
If you buy the "Lord of the Pit" item from the devil room and you are not holding a pill/card(Q abilities),then you will not change to the flying demon form,but you can still fly over everything.

As soon as you pick something however it will change your appearance correctly.
When you use any pills/cards and you no longer hold anything again,sometimes it will remove the demonic form,until you pick up something,but you can still fly over everything.

[Possible bug with fire-blocks while in fly mode?]
Flying over fire-blocks will count as a hit and you will lose hp.
I'm not sure this is intended or not,since you can fly over spikes and holes.

I had a problem where steam apparently opened the game 4-5 times without my knowledge. I left to go eat after closing out of Isaac and I was still in the game without it being active. So I went into my task manager only to find like 5 Isaac's running in the background without windows.

Not sure if anyone else has had this happen, but I wouldn't doubt I am just dumb and caused it to happen myself.

Any sort of extreme bulletspam (done by enemies and yourself) leads to controls "lagging" -- there's a substantial delay between pressing a key and seeing the action.

The game sticks on the loading splash screen and does nothing. Then if I close the loading splash screen executable via task manager it will load the game sometimes, and sometimes it continues to do nothing so I have to close both.
Also the frame rate is really bad so it runs really slowly.
I know my computer isn't great but it should run better then it does, the game doesn't seem that much more intense then meat boy, and meat boy was fine so just wanted to throw in what i've noticed.
Interesting game but the slow down makes it unplayable sadly. I do hope to see this game fixed, it's really fun from what little i've played.

Being killed by Pride's diagonal ray attack leaves an empty "killed by" box on the death screen.

He's Pride, I should think he'd want credit for the kill.

The game has no interaction with Steam whatsoever. Ignoring the whole "deleting your file every time" issue with clearing my browser cache; when I play the game, I am not listed as online. In all the time I've put in so far, Steam has me listed with "2 Minutes Played," which I presume is from the initial loading screen only. And there seems to be a complete disconnect between the game and achievements. I have found the Radioactive Spider secret at least 4 times so far and yet I still have 0/43 achievements earned.

I got the cat, so i have 9 extra trys,but only 1 hp left. After a while, without losing a try, i got the green mushroom and got another try. So i went on and collect some stuff, so i got a maximum of 3 hp (red hearts). Then after a while i died the first time and 1 try is gone and i had the 3hp... but when i died the 2nd time, i have had only 1hp insteed of 3hp, which i should have got... . I think it is a bug that i lost 2 hp (2 red hearts...), or isn't it?

When fighting Larry Jr. If you fight in a corner and he swarms in on you I've had it twice where it moves me off grid and a piece of poop shows up right where I used to be. I can hear myself firing but I am no where and unable to get back into the room.

Which was frustrating because I had a lot of stuff going for me including a 1UP!

I believe the 9-lives cat purposefully revives you with only 1 heart. It's an evil mechanic, but likely intentional. The reason you revived with your 3 hearts when you died the first time is because the mushroom revives you with the normal amount of hearts before you had died.

In your case, you died, it used your mushroom and revived you with 3 hearts then you died again and it used the 9-lives cat, which only revives you with 1 heart.

I think that is intentional sometimes. I've had this happen too but if you pay attention to the boss name its not one of the 7 deadly sin names and when you kill him the reward is a lot of coins.

The coin shop can sometimes be inhabited by the sin of Greed, in place of the actual shop.

BUG REPORT: Near the end of the game, in one of the arena maps, I stood on top of where one of the monstro duo spawns (yes, deep enough, bosses come two at a time, as just a regular room monster fight) and he hurt me.... through the south wall. after that, I was stuck outside the game area. I could move right and left along the bottom (as seen by the fact when I dropped bombs it dropped them inside the map along the bottom wall), but could not shoot back in to finish the fight. I could not see myself. I could not die. Had to give up some VERY good gear that I think would have let me beat the game.

Not sure how to describe the issue, but I get weird input lag when things get busy on screen. If there's 4+ enemies and projectiles flying around and enemies that leave trails it is at it's worst. The best I can describe it is the inputs seem to queue up, to a point where I'm pressing left, but going right on screen still, I let go and then he'll go left a second or two after. I have to tell it what to do a good second or two before it does it.

After an enemy or two is killed it goes back to normal, but is incredibly hard to play through. I've watched my CPU usage during play and it never spikes above 40% so I'm not sure what could be the issue. I typically play with mouse and keyboard.

Regarding lost saves data i think it got something to do with reseting your PC through the reset button and not through the start menu, meaning save data is not crash-proof.

I got a BSOD and as it seemed got no other choice but to reset the PC thru the button. When i got back some of my progress was gone.

I could be wrong tho...

Also, if you alt-tab or play in windowed mode and do something else but not playing the game - like browsing the net or sumtin, th game will crash with no message, just close, and in my case - corrupt the save data. So make sure u closed the game tru the game menu.

when fighting larry jr. (the boss that is two worms that run around and defecate. It cornered me in the bottom left, hit me, and defecated exactly then; I might have also hit it with something, not sure. I disappeared. Shooting made noise but no shots appeared, I couldn't move or harm anything, nor be harmed.
I put a bomb and it placed on my location (bottom right corner in a pile of feces) which exploded but made no difference to my HP or anything else. I had to restart the game.

I also noticed that when I get an upgrade to damage/rate of fire/range it will not appear on the menu (hitting esc) until after I fire a shot. So, for example I have 2 bars for damage, I get a damage upgrade. It shows 2 bars, i move around, i wait, it shows 2 bars. I fire some shots and it now shows 4 bars.

Also, there needs to be some way to pause the music and minimize the game. It is always on top, and always playing music. I can pause the game by hitting Esc key. Great for if I need to run to the bathroom. But if someone calls me on skype and I take the call there is no easy way to mute it. Nor to minimize it. I have to get creative (eg, use windows tuner to cut volume to that program only, and drag it so that it is mostly out of the way). A "minimize & silence" option would be great to have in the esc menu.

Game keeps crashing to desktop. This would not be so bad, but it LOST ALL MY PROGRESS! I spent many hours last night, beat the game twice, opened up the first two characters, lots of other stuff: all gone!

Placing a bomb between two blood donation machines only destroys one.

They were summoned with 2 temperance cards in the same room. Placement was [Machine][Bomb][Machine] and the machines were both well within the blast radius.

EDIT: and another one.

The Skakatole doesn't protect against flies released by the guy in the arcade. It's probably the same for flies released by the slot machine.

Bugs still here after update:
Moveable rock (the one thats spawn when you get an item or like that), you can push it and it will move it that direction but still stuck to the ground.

Text under screen "1280x720 when you pick an item, text goes a little under screen.

when picking an item and getting shot at, then you will still lose HP which i hope is a bug, because thats very annoying.

Reinstalling solved this for me, kept all my saves. Just started it up again, to check if it counted my succesful run just now, but game window doesen't show again :\
I hope for a fix, cause reinstalling every time I want to play sounds like a huge pain in the A.

In the challenge rooms, Larry Jr. worms sometimes spawn, but once, 4 (2x) appeared, and two of them had only one segment, and insufficient life, thus they died instantly.

EDIT: For reference, this happened to me in the 1st level of the womb, while playing as Judas.

Also if you're alt + tabbed for more than 30 seconds, the game closes

Most severe Bug at the moment, I believe.
Also, "always on top" isn't really cool.
Autopause if the game loses focus would be desirable.

I don't know why but the game stopped displaying for me entirely past the loading splash screen. I don't know if it's a common problem (the many people I chat with haven't run into this), but I'm posting it here, hoping for a solution. I was able to play at least once since the update.

It doesn't show up when I alt-tab, nor is it in my taskbar, but it shows BoI as a running application in the Task Manager. When I try "switch to", nothing happens.

I've restarted it three times now, with no luck

Just beat the game. The stats and unlocks in the game menus did not save. After I restarted the game, they were wiped and gone. I'm not running any programs, while playing or afterward, that would delete or mess with flash cache. Is there a fix for this? Thanks.

Bug with "Pestilence" boss: Fought with him in caves 2, I had high damage and fire rate... After many hits I trew him outside the map... He keeps spawning flys and trowing his explosive ball. The flys spawn inside the map, the ball dont.

After a battle with wrath: Wrath dropped a MR.bomb or something like that, I had another active item and it was blocking my way out: I got trapped in a small area without bombs to destroy the rocks to free myself.
I had to restart the game in both cases, pardon me for my crappy english.

As an update, I tried going to the website for the Adobe Flash Player Global Storage Settings panel and setting the Global Storage to 100kb with 3rd party data storage allowed. I set both game shortcuts in the Steam folder to run as administrator. The game still will not save properly. After I reload my data is gone. The only data it seems to have saved is from the first death.

not sure why but after update, when I run in fullscreen it will not stretch to screen at lower resolutions. I have 11+hours logged in pre-update and never had an issue, I let steam apply the update and now I have to run it at its max resolution to fill the screen. Anyone else had this issue. Also any help would be appreciated.

I just managed to make it to Mom after what I thought was a decent run, then after some dodging, she trod on me. Not normally a problem, as I could tank the damage. BUT I GOT KNOCKED OFF-SCREEN. (http://i.imgur.com/UFikH.png) I could move around, fire, and the dreaded heel would try and land on me, but I couldn't escape, and I couldn't die. Fan-flipping tastic.

And just to clarify, I got forced through the border of the screen, so I couldn't walk back in to the battle. I was playing as Isaac on 1280x800 full-screen. I thought this had been fixed, but I guess that bug report was for a different wall clipping bug.

Like others have noted, being tabbed out of the game for more than a couple minutes will crash it silently.

Also something that's been noted by others, the control options (AZERTY and lefty flip) keep toggling themselves on with every game launch, as well as the music setting.

And it's only The Binding of Isaac, as other games start just fine. Did I somehow not get the patch? Steam seems to think there's nothing to update, though...

Definitely want to look into fixing this so it doesn't happen to other players - it is a very, very frustrating glitch to encounter.

I entered a fight with War and chucked Bob's Rotten Head at him; he lost a lot of health and got poisoned. When he flew off the screen however, the poison drained his health to the point where he lost his body and he was unable to fly back to the arena.

Annoyingly, I had a terrific run up to this point and was unable to continue because War was stuck off-screen. :(

Anyone else encountered this or know if it will be fixed somehow? :)

If you have a powerup that causes your shots to push enemies around and you fight Death, you can get him stuck almost offscreen. From that point on, all he'll do is constantly spawn Knights while you can't shoot or bomb him.

Also today, I collected 51 coins total at the same time, but didn't get the 50+ pennies achievement, nor did it unlock the new character :(. This happened in The Depths 1, after I had already gotten the Maggy's Wig achievements on that floor, and also unlocking something else that apparently didn't have an achievement associated with it. Not sure if that's related, though :)

I had picked up about 7 Pretty Fly pills (though only 3 visible) and a crap-ton of other stuff, so I can't really give more specifics on what I was using.

Not sure if these have been mentioned or not but here goes:

- Using the Magneto powerup (The one that lures items to you, even over chasms and rocks), there was a tarot card that did not move. Not sure which card it was, if it was just that one card or all others, but thought I'd mention it.

- A few times, I've encountered a room where an item was surrounded by rocks and, not having bombs, I knew I couldn't get the item. I'd leave for a while and come back through that room to notice that the items would be accessible to me. This only happened rarely, but I've confirmed it twice.

- I finally killed Mom, but my "Mom Kills" on the Stats screen still shows 0. Not a big deal, but still kind of irksome.

I've cleared the game a few times with multiple characters and none of the steam achievements have been unlocked for them yet. Also, the same issue as many others have with the collection deleting itself occurs with me.

Both problems started occurring after the game update a few days ago... which sucks cuz updates are supposed to help :/

Side note: To get around the "always on top" problem, if you fullscreen then go back to windowed mode (press f twice) Isaac can be behind Firefox with the wiki's item page open ;)

EDIT:
I had another issue with a game that was installed on steam not registering as installed, so the instructions given by tech support was to delete everything in the steam folder except the .exe and the steam apps folder (that houses the game files by default). Doing that didn't fix the other problem, but my steam suddenly has the correct achievements unlocked for me now.

Collection is still way smaller than it used to be though :(

The game has no interaction with Steam whatsoever. Ignoring the whole "deleting your file every time" issue with clearing my browser cache; when I play the game, I am not listed as online. In all the time I've put in so far, Steam has me listed with "2 Minutes Played," which I presume is from the initial loading screen only. And there seems to be a complete disconnect between the game and achievements. I have found the Radioactive Spider secret at least 4 times so far and yet I still have 0/43 achievements earned.


I'm having the same issues as Joemurp here, and I am also on a Mac, back on 10.5.8 but ready to upgrade to Snow Leopard, 10.6. (It's an older MacBook Pro, so I'm hesitant to change too much system stuff too quickly.) I know when the game boots up, I see the icon of Binding_of_isaac on my Taskbar, which during the loading screen is joined by a second, bouncing icon for a file simply called Isaac, which is probably the game itself instead of the preloader. I'm really hoping Mac Steam integration is fixed whether on the Valve side or the McMillan side, because I am *really* enjoying this bizarre little game.

Minor issue:

As many players may or may not know, whether an enemy is its "special" version (i.e. that which is stronger but drops extra loot) appears to be determined when the player enters the room. Therefore, if you leave and enter the same room long enough, you will eventually get one or more special version enemies.

This by itself is not a problem, because most of the ways to leave a room without killing the enemies cost the player resources.

However, it becomes an issue if the player has the X-ray glasses, because it allows the player to enter and leave over and over all of the rooms adjacent to the secret room, without expending any resources.

This is optimal play in many cases, especially if the enemies are extremely easy to defeat for the player's current itemset, even in their special versions, because more loot is always superior to less loot. It is, however, tedious and a lot of players won't do it, but that's precisely why I consider it an issue; the game should not encourage players to do non-fun things in order to play optimally, as a general game design principle.

If the game designers agree, determining which rooms contain special version monsters at the generation of the level rather than upon entering the room would fix the issue.

Much like an earlier report in this thread, it seems Cain is perma-locked on my end. I'm pretty damn sure I got at least the minimum amount of cash needed to unlock him, and yet he remains locked at all times.

I believe I should have first unlocked him on my Maggy walkthrough where I beat Mom's heart on the first try and unlocked Judas.

Since then, I've had one or two situations where I definitely had enough cash, and yet he never unlocks. I am ultra bummed since I suppose that basically means I can't get all the endings and maybe even unlock the other extra character(s) ;A;

Well. It seems that the Cain's Eyepatch achievement is only awarded after collecting 55 pennies (like it says in-game for unlocking Cain). However the description on Steam says "Collect 50+ pennies in one play through", so I guess it's not so much a bug, as a mis-wording on Steam.

I seem to be having trouble getting achievements. I got 11 early on, but can't seem to get any more. I first noticed the problem when I built a Super Meat Boy and did not get the achievement, but it became very apparant recently when I beat the game and did not recieve "Judas's Fez". I can play as Judas, but did not receive the achievement. Interestingly, the picture is highlighted like I have unlocked it, but it is with the locked achievements and is not counting for me.

You didnt kill the "Real Mom". There is another version of mom that you need to kill before it records kills.

I realized why this is confusing since you get the 'I killed Mom' achievment after the 3rd chapter, unless I got it early?

Slight graphic bug- Using moms contact while fighting Gemini it seems petrifying the larger one seems to freeze the umbilical cord causing him to float around seperately. When unfroze he goes back to normal and freezing the small one has no such issues. This also just happened so not sure if any other enemies act similarly.

Also, I remember having achievement problems with another game and finding an easy fix for it. Unfortunately I have no clue what game it was or what fixed it anymore. :\

There's a minor bug with Fistula that when you've defeated it and all the remaining maggots (or Chargers, to be more precise), the boss music keeps playing until you either pick up the item/upgrade that it dropped, go out of the boss room or move on to the next level.

In Womb 2, i bombed a door for get out of a room without killing nothing (It was a room with a single door, the one where i entered). Though the game showed the door cracked open, i couldn't go through it until i killed all the monsters first, basically wasting a bomb for nothing.

When using a "Stun" Q item (Mom's Pad/Bra) on the "half-head" monsters (the ones that can only be hurt when they turn their back to you and expose their unprotected brains) sometimes the faces will get 'stuck' in one direction. You can damage them normally from behind even though the head graphic is stuck looking in one direction.

Hope this helps; the description might not make a lot of sense.

Dunno if this qualifies as a bug, but if you make blood pact for your remaining hearts and have 1UP or Guppy, you will still be alive but with 0 hearts. Without the extra lives, it ends with a game over. When I get home I can attach a screenshot of it if need be, I'm at work right now.

Which is odd because if you take Guppy and it forces you to lose all your hearts, you will instead be revived with 8 lives left.

I just came across an odd bug near the end of my most recent run...Two, actually, but I think the first triggered the second.

First, while I was the worm boss Scolex, the one of the bombs he tossed exploded, but the explosion graphic remained. You could push it around with my bullets, but I didn't bother touching it (I was almost at the end!) and proceeded to the next floor.

Next, the graphics started to appear brighter than normal, the red was brighter and Cain appeared practically white. This carried on through the game, up to the final boss (which I nuked with the Bible), the ending cutscene, and now it's still stuck on super-bright while on the main menu, even.

Here are the screenshots of each bug to give you an idea:

1. A demon deal making room can appear in womb2 after killing mom's heart.

2. Battery will not display the animation nor do the sound on the third charge after using an item in a room where the item charged up in that room.
So if I enter the room with 4/6, let it charge to 6/6 via battery. Use the item, then charge it to 3/6, it will make the sound/animation on 1/6 and 2/6 but not 3/6. Also, sometimes 6/6 will not do it either (haven't identified a repeatable cause there)

3. When fighting leapers (headless bodies with blood who jump and shoot blood in 4 cirections) with a meat boy, they jumped in the air and his AI broke and he just stood completely immobile until I left the room.
This doesn't always happen, as I have fought leapers before where it didn't. It just happened that time.

4. Weird familiar bug
a. Get sack of money
b&c. get Sister Maggy and Brother bobby, not sure about order but I think bobby was first.
d. Get the relic.
When I picked up the relic maggy turned into a second bobby, firing blue shots, IIRC on her eye of shooting though (each is keyed to one of isaacs eyes). They later turned back to normal (I don't remember if it was when I went to next level, or when I picked up lil CHAD)

Still not getting any achievements.

I have tried:
Verifying integrity of game cache.
Deleting local files and redownloading the game.
Running all the .exe files in the game's steamapps folder.
Deleting my save.
Updating Flash.
Deleting Flash's appdata cache files.
Deleting the game, deleting steam with steamapps backed up, reinstalling Steam fresh then redownloading the game.

I use Windows 7 x64, only account is administrator account, UAC completely disabled, newest version of Flash, more than enough system power, everything that should matter works.

I recently tried downloading and installing steam on a friend's laptop and downloading the game there, I got one mom kill in and I got achievements there. That laptop also ran Windows 7, not sure if it was x64 though. Could it have something to do with 64-bit Flash?

[Problem 1]
I got trapped in the arena room in Womb 2, fully decked out and ready to kill Mom's Heart. Very disappointing.

The doors closed, I killed Fistula, then that prancing devil guy, and then the giant maggot (Chubby?) that spawns smaller maggots. Chubby died last (no spawns around when I killed him.) The doors simply won't open.

Extra information: I also had L2 meat cube, steven, chocolate milk, a devil card, the book of revelations, soul hearts off the screen, a 1up, >>>3 flies, loki's horns, vampire healing, the battery, the ladder, compass, mom's shoes, rock, the poop helmet (?), luck foot, roids, and steam sale.

[Problem 2]
When running the game in a window, it stays on top of everything. I have to put it in full-screen, and then put it back to windowed mode. This only works until I close the game and open it again, though sometimes it doesn't happen at all.)

Some odd behavior with respawning with a 1-up:

I had a 1-up, an "explosive diarrhea" pill, and one heart remaining. I go into a room and kill all the enemies. There is a chest in the center surrounded by rocks so I need to use a bomb to get it. I use the pill to do so, but one of the bombs pushes another bomb resulting in it killing me and kicking me out of the room. I re-enter the room and not only did the enemies respawn, but there are now two chests instead of one.

During gameplay, against Mom's Heart, if the user damages Mom's Heart with a poison type weapon, the heart retracts, and the heart takes enough damage to enter phase 2 while the spawned enemies are still alive, the heart will begin tossing it's explosive attacks without re-appearing. The heart at this time will not be able to be damaged until the spawned enemies are defeated.

Additionally, this bug also leads to sounds effects being stacked for when the heart finally does respawn.

When fighting death, you can manage to push him in the wall if you have a rapid firepower, but then you'll be unable to kill him : He keeps spawning knights but never comes back. (tested bombs on the wall but it did not reach him, it's a shame my teleporter was not charged >.<)

It's just not death. I used mom's bra on pestilence and my shots pushed him right through the side of the screen, rendering him unkillable.

It is really easy to push enemies with the petrify effect (Mom's bra, mom's contact) right off the screen, making you unable to get out of that room.

I don't know if this is a NEW problem or not, (or if it even is a bug, though it seems like it would be...)

After the patch earlier today I found the "I am error" room for the first time ever!...but...after I finished it, when I got to Womb 2 (I found this room in womb 1, no oddities yet) The game's colors were a LOT brighter for some reason, and this lasted until I exited the game altogether, the brighter colors made some of the main menu text nearly unreadable. It was kinda harmless otherwise.

I thought maybe it had something to do with pressing a certain key on the keyboard by mistake, but this doesn't seem to be the case...

For some reason, it always took some time for the game to finish loading. Yet, after five minutes of waiting, I was pretty certain that the game wasn't going to start anymore.

Here's something I ran into regarding today's patch - apparently one of the updates was a new musical theme for winning Challenge rooms and minibosses that's different from the one you get when winning the level-boss. The "bug" is that when I win a Challenge/mini-boss, BOTH of the victory themes play at the same time.

As a side note and more nitpicking than anything else - when I pick up a wafer, it displays its effect as "DMG resistence", and when I pick up the inverted cross (which is now pitch black with a red trim - or is it a different item entirely?), it displays "Deamon Wings".

I'm quoting a few of glitches that I have also come across because there have been updates since these comments were originally posted.

I entered a fight with War and chucked Bob's Rotten Head at him; he lost a lot of health and got poisoned. When he flew off the screen however, the poison drained his health to the point where he lost his body and he was unable to fly back to the arena.

Annoyingly, I had a terrific run up to this point and was unable to continue because War was stuck off-screen. :(

Anyone else encountered this or know if it will be fixed somehow? :)

The only difference for me was that I had poison shots as opposed to Bob's Rotten Head.

When fighting the Mr. Maw (http://bindingofisaac.wikia.com/wiki/Mr._Maw) creatures, on several occasions rather than extending a head towards me, it would send a second body at me. Unfortunately I could not screenshot it, but yeah, just pointing it out.

There's a minor bug with Fistula that when you've defeated it and all the remaining maggots (or Chargers, to be more precise), the boss music keeps playing until you either pick up the item/upgrade that it dropped, go out of the boss room or move on to the next level.

I've had this happen with several different bosses.


Another minor issue (it doesn't really bother me but I thought I'd mention it) is that every time I open the game it defaults to windowed even though I always put it in full screen, and I think it only started happening after one of the updates.

Finished The game for the 7th Time and there was a demon door on the final boss I figured I would check it out as soon as I entered I received "the wafer" achievement. odd. The next 3 times finishing the game and all I have received from the chest is "the wafer" despite changing characters am I now forever in this loop of only a 7th playthrough?

[Problem concerning Lil' Steve and The Cross]

I don't know if it is a bug or an expected behavior, but after acquiring The Cross, Lil' Steve became Brother Bobby in the room I was (instead of being black and shooting magical tears, it became grey and started to shoot standart tears). After leaving the room he became Lil' Steve again.

Happened to me with a bag of pennies, then also with little chubby. picking up any follower after obtaining little steve does this.

can't have more than 2 followers, sister, brother, steve for eg. the last one you picked up won't appear. since its unlikely you will get them all why is this the case?

Oh, and I managed to get a crapton of followers on my last playthrough, but some of them wouldn't appear:

- Lil' Steve
- Meat (level 2)
- 2 Pretty Flies
- Little C.H.A.D.
- Bag of Pennies
- Sister Maggy (didn't appear)
- Brother Bobby (didn't appear)

Since it is flash, it is highly dependant on the CPU, and that is a lower-middle range CPU from 2007. That's why the system requirements recommend a 2.5 GHz processor (though GHz isn't the sole determinant of CPU power, as the architecture matters, but yours is again lower-middle range in that respect.)

In addition, though it is a recent model, that graphics card is rather low end, being as it is designed for notebooks.

About the CPU: the system requirements says that I need 2.5 GHz (1 core), doesn't the fact that I have 2 cores count?
http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=2563&game=The%20Binding%20of%20Isaac In this link it uses a Pentium 4 2.53GHz as an example for a CPU that you can use, My understanding of computer architecture is not so high, but I thought my CPU was better than a Pentium 4.

edit: so, for example, am I inside the minimum requirements for skyrim and not for The Binding of Isaac?

I presume he must have a reason for focusing on the clock speed in the system requirements.

Again, the example PC meets the recommended requirements as it is over 2.5 GHz, while yours does not. Also doubling the cores does not double the power for most applications. Flash in particular gets very little use out of multiple cores. At best the second core runs other stuff in the background and your operating system while the other one runs the game.

So I assume I have an issue because whoever made this game made a bad choice on the language he made the game, for the fact that he choose one that can't handle more than 1 core or, if it can handle them, he doesn't programmed a support for them, Yeah. as a programmer, and a big fan of java, I have to admit that even c# and XNA would have been a better language, for the fact that it easy to learn, very simple and almost everything is already done. do you want MAC to play it? c++ is the way.

Your argument about the CPU doesn't make much sense, Oblivion has a 3 GHz intel pentium 4 has recommended system requirement but any intel core 2 duo can run it without any problem. The issue is not in my PC in my opinion, I'm sorry.


edit: also the slow down doesn't make any sense: in a room with six enemies I have no frame issues but after I killed five of them and there are no more particles in the screen the frame rate start to drop.

Though a lot of people don't like Flash for various reasons, that is what they chose to make this game in, for better or for worse. And the way flash works is it is very dependant on the processor, and your PC does not meet the publicly stated minimum requirements.

Also, despite your claims that you think it's not, the problem must be with your PC as most people don't have the same problem as you.

Very few programs make full use of multiple cores. In any case that situation isn't going to be improved with a patch.

Only other thing giving your description of it being intermittent seemingly at random times, is maybe some other program running in the background on your computer has periodic bursts of activity.

Hey there. I've had an interesting issue surface in my last playthrough. I've beaten Mom four times now, and my in-game progress and achievement list reflects this. However, my Steam achievements appear to be out of synch. According to my Steam achievements, I have only beaten Mom twice.

This issue came up between beating Mom for the second and third time, and defeating her again seems to have no real effect on this status. Is there any way I can get my Steam achievements without wiping all of my BoI progress?

EDIT: Every now and then, I will also lose track of some of the items I have collected. Not a major issue, just something to take note of?

I found a couple more bugs, but I'm not sure if they were reported already.

-When fighting Mom's Heart, when you get her to the phase where she tosses bombs at you, her "ISSAC!" voice glitches and repeats itself several times before it stops.
-If you have Lil' Steven, and pick up a 1up in a hidden room, Steven gets replaced with Brother Bobby, but he went back to normal when I left the secret room.

Annnnnd now the game just closed on me when I was typing this. >_< (siiiiiigh)

This game has quit on me SEVERAL times while it was not focused on. Which bothered me like heck seeing I've had one lucky run where I got all of my last remaining few items and as I was actually crossing them off my list, the game crashed or rather disappeared, leaving me to do it again over several runs. The crossing off took around 5 seconds, it crashed -that- quickly after losing focus. Although I believe I also responded to someone on steam. My name turned blue after the third message, so I guess 10 seconds.

I also once had the luck to get in the devil room I think 4 or 5 times while all these times holding a D6, and using it... the last time, amusingly after defeating the heart, I used it in there again and the game froze. Seems like it does this after you use the D6 too much?

This and I seriously don't get how the switching in hearts work when you have soul hearts as well. This one time I was left without -any- hearts.

Also the Devil room sometimes closing upon leaving and other times not closing, not to mention Mother's room, which doors always disappear as well and other times do not.

Finally I lose my meat cube virtually when I get 3 pretty flies. This isn't an issue seeing I'd still get the small meat boy on the third meat cube, but I have no use for the second one, seeing that'd normally give a little floating meat head that shoots instead of a not-so-useful fly.
Before the latest patch however the fly and meat cube co-existed in the same spot, which I preferred.

Mind you, all these things are probably mentioned before.

tl;dr version:
Out of focus crashes game without error.
Using D6 too much in devil room freezes game.
Doors at mom and devil room randomly not (dis)appearing.
Disappearing soul hearts at devil room purchase.
3 pretty flies means no visual cube/head of meat.

P.S: I used to have problems with achievements, then at the so manieth boot I gained everything I didn't have before.

The glitches keep coming in for me!

I used Mom's Bra on Monstro II to freeze him, but when he unfroze, he got stuck on some rocks and kept doing his high jump attack. Had to use a bomb to get him out. Also, remember that brightness glitch I had with Scolex? It happened here too, right after Monstro II. It reverted back to normal once I cleared the floor.

Two issues I noticed.

If you have the treasure map or an item that reveals the entire map, the unrevealed sections of the map will flicker off and on again during screen transitions.

If you are in a room with two or more mini bosses (Especially those in Womb), if you kill a mini boss, the health meter displayed for the next boss you hit will be inaccurate.

Hmm, glitch that happened while I played as Magdalene. I had Technology and The Gamekid. I saved up the Gamekid for the boss, so I enter the boss room, use Gamekid. When it ran out, my head was to the side and shot in the opposite direction of what I pressed. These two occasions happened in the same run, one on Monstro, the other on War.

It sometimes randomly crashes and freezes when entering Shop rooms when I've used the D6 anywhere before.

That's rather annoying.

minor gripe: when fighting Mom's Heart if you have homing shots (spoon bender or magician tarot), when the heart retreats into the ceiling your shots will still try to home in on it in the center of the room instead of on the summons you need to beat to get the boss to re-appear.

That tends to happen with any enemy that disappears like that. The shots eventually vanish, but I've never had a problem with enemies while fighting with homing shots. It would be nice to see it fixed, though.

These are minor glitches but I've noticed them CONSISTENTLY.

-When in the secret room, Robo-Baby Turns into Brother Bobby.

-The enemies with extending necks often turn invisible or have two sets of legs and no head.

-Leeches have a tendency to charge completely off the map.

-If your speed is above 4 bars, you can get stuck in the wall to the secret room by running into it.

More to come, i'm sure. I just wish my achieves would pop.

Edit: -Using full room damage tarots or items will cause envy or Fistula to get stuck behind rocks in the corner of the room.

If you escape the gauntlet room after the battles have begun (Say, by flying over the bars), the gauntlet battle music doesn't stop playing until it hits its looping point.

A weird one: I killed Fistula, but it was one of those special off-colored types, and the smallest eggs hatched into bomb flies. The battle ended with a chain-reaction of a bunch of bomb-flies blowing each other up. The boss battle music didn't stop playing with the battle was over.

This one bug has its own topic now as it seems to be the worst bug, and I posted there, but I want to make sure that this bug isn't lampshaded, forgotten about, etc., thus I'll post here, as well.

If the game loses focus for about half a minute to a minute, it silently crashes (basically, disappears from the task bar and task manager without a sound or message of any kind).

Has happened 4 times to me in total. 3 times in one night, and once more the next day.
It's the only real bug I've come across. Looks like it's been happening for a while, given the forum post history. Please fix it!

Don't know if it has been posted yet, but an interesting bug happened when I was playing.
I made a few deals with the devil in order to get the nail and a few other decent items. My health went to 0, but I was still alive. I think that part was intended though. Anyway, the real bug was when I made it through a few more levels and still had no health, but a lot of soul hearts. The actual bug happened when I used the Strength card. It didn't increase my max health to 1. That could be a glitch in its own, but the major problem was that I found a health pickup after beating the boss with the Strength card active. My health went up to one. But then when I exited the boss room, it went back down to 0. Managed to survive by buying Guppy and using the nail+battery though.
Long story short:
Can survive deals with the devil if it will put you at 0 health. (Possibly intended)
Strength card has no effect on health while at 0 health due to above.
Strength card will decrease max health back to 0 if you pick up a health increaser while it is active and leave the room.

That's not a glitch, you can only have 3 projectile blockers, and 3 familiars.

If you were to get another cube of meat, the meatboy would upgrade and you would get him back in addition to the 3 flies.
