  81. ---ITEM DROPS---
  82. *Anything that can be dropped by a boss, be found in a shop or a gold chest can never be found as a Regular drop, because all the contents of those three pools are removed from the Regular drop pool. However, only one instance of each item is removed, so the Sad Onion can still be found as a regular drop.
  83. *Brother Bobby and Boom! are in the Regular Drop pool twice.
  84. *The Wooden Spoon OR the Belt can be found as a Boss Drop, but never both; the game randomly chooses one of the two and puts it in the Boss Drop pool. The same applies for Gold Chests, but the same item can be in both pools. Both items are also in the Regular drop pool, but due to the effect above, if either of them can be found as either a Boss Drop or a Gold Chest drop, it will be removed from the Regular drop pool.
  85. *The game picks two random Mom range items (Lipstick, Heels, Underwear) and adds them to the Boss Drop pool, and also adds one random Mom range item to the Gold Chest pool. These three items do not have to be unique. Any item not found in those pools can be found as a Regular drop.
  86. *There is a 50% chance the 1-up Mushroom and My Little Unicorn will be in the Secret Room pool twice.
  87. *If you find the Bum Friend in a Shop, Holy Grail is in the Angel Room item pool twice. If you find the Portable Slot in the Shop, the Holy Grail is only in the Angel Room item pool once. Each possibility has a 50% chance of occuring.
  88. *There is a 50% chance that Fate will be available in a Gold Chest and Pyro will be available in a Secret Room. Yes, these are in the same "if" condition. No, you cannot find them anywhere else.
  89. *There is a 50% chance Skeleton Key will be added to the Regular item pool. It can still be found in the Arena either way.
  90. *The Necronomicon has a 33% chance of never being added to the item pools. If it is added, there is a 66% chance it will be available as a Regular drop, and a 33% chance it will be available as a Devil Room drop. Either way, it gets added to the Library pool.
  91. *The 9-Volt and the Battery are only available in the Shop Item pool, and there is only a 50% chance each that they will be available.
  92. *There is a 20% chance that Technology will be a Devil Room item instead of a Regular item drop.
  93. *There is a 33% chance that Lord of the Pit will be available in the Devil Room pool.
  94. *There is a 33% chance that We Need to Go Deeper! will be avaiable in the Devil Room, a 33% chance it will be available in the Secret Room, and a 33% chance it won't be available at all.
  95. *There is a 33% chance that the Book of Belial will be avaiable as a Regular drop, a 33% chance it will be available in the Secret Room, and a 33% chance it will be available in the Devil Room. It will always be available for a drop in the Library.
  96. **However, the Book of Belial is never in the item pools when you're playing as Judas. No other character's starting items have this condition.
  97. *There is a 66% chance that Transcendence will be available in the Secret Room.
  98. *There is a 66% chance that The Nail will be available in the Devil Room.
  99. *There is a 66% chance that Super Bandage will be available as a Boss Drop.
  100. *There are several items that have a 33% chance of being available in the Devil Room instead of a Regular drop: Lucky Foot, Quarter, Book of Sin, The Common Cold, The Parasite, Money = Power, Mom's Knife, Whore of Babylon, Razor Blade, Demon Baby, Forget-Me-Now, and the Monster Manuel.
  101. *The Book of Sin and the Monster Manuel will also always be available in the Library.
  102. *Unlocking Bloody Lust adds it to the Devil Room pool...but it is always available as a Regular drop, even before you unlock it.
  103. *If five or less items are left remaining in the Regular item pool when it goes to fetch an item, the entire item pool system is reset.
  104. *The Rosary adds the Bible to the Shop Item pool seven times.
  105. *Dr. Fetus adds Bobby-Bomb and Mr. Mega to the Regular drop pool six times each.
  106. *There's a missing item pool that never actually seems to ever exist, for drops sometimes in treasure rooms.
  107. *Library pool never empties unless you pick up the books. If you've collected them all, bam, it turns into two free items.
  108. *You won't see the IV bag from a blood machine if you've picked it up before.
  109. *Seeing an item from a regular drop, Arena, Boss Arena, Devil Room, Demon Beggar, Gold Chest, Shop, Beggar (Shop Pool), Secret Room, or Boss Drop will remove one instance of it from its respective pool UNLESS the item pool is refreshed.
  110. *Seeing an item from a God Room (or a Demon Beggar giving a God Item) or Library, however, will not temporarily remove it from play.
  111. *Picking up an item will (with the exception of special cases like the Cube of Meat) remove all of it from play. Period. (Unless lol bugs)
  112. *Demon Beggars drop Devil Items. If they drop a God Item however, there's a God Room on the floor instead.
  113. *God Rooms and Demon Beggars on floors with God Rooms won't drop a God Item if the Devil Room pool is empty!
  114. *Demon Beggars drop Shop Items like ordinary Beggars if it can't drop a Devil/God Item.
  115. *Boss Rooms (and Boss Arenas) bug out when empty (because they don't check to see if the boss pool is empty) and won't refresh the item pools. They'll drop an undefined item instead.
  116. *The above applies to Secret Rooms, too.
  117. *Libraries won't refresh the item pools, but since they never empty they'll start dipping into the Regular pool if you've touched all the books. They might refresh the item pools...but they crash the game when it tries.
  118. *Shop Rooms (and Beggars) won't dip into their pool when there's one item left and go into the Regular pool instead.
  119. *The Fallen drops Devil Room items if there's any available, but doesn't remove them from the Devil Room pool. Pick it up to remove it.
  120. *If a Beggar (either type) fails to find an item to drop the very first time, it'll just drop whatever.
  121. *Normal Beggars have a random chance of dropping a basic health up item.
  122. *Red Chests can drop Dead Cat, Guppy's Head, Guppy's Paw, or Guppy's Tail.
  125. Let's walk through the greatest mystery of this game: dropping an item.
  127. First the game walks through the checks in this order:
  128. -Are you in a Library? Find a book and drop it.
  129. -Are there items left in the Arena pool? Are you in an Arena, and not a Boss Arena? Pick an Arena item from the pool, drop it and remove it.
  130. -Are there items left in the Devil Room pool? Are you in a God Room, or in a Curse Room or dealing with a Demon Beggar on a floor with a God Room? Find a God item that hasn't been picked up and drop it.
  131. -Are there items left in the Devil Room pool? Are you in a Devil Room, or in a Curse Room or dealing with a Demon Beggar on a floor with a Devil Room? Pick a devil item from the pool, drop it and remove it.
  132. -Are there items left in the Gold Chest pool? Did you just open a Gold Chest? Are you not in The Chest? Pick a gold chest item from the pool, drop it and remove it.
  133. -Are there at least two items left in the Shop pool? Are you in a shop or dealing with a Beggar? Pick a shop item from the pool, drop it and remove it.
  134. -(The game talks about some pool that's never created here. It's a 50% chance of taking from it if in you're in a treasure room, but it's nonexistant and empty so it never accesses it.)
  135. -Are you in a secret room? Pick a secret item from the pool, drop it and remove it.
  136. -Are you in a boss arena? Pick a boss item from the pool, drop it and remove it.
  137. -Are you in a boss room? Did you beat...
  138. --The Fallen? If there's a Devil item left in the pool, drop one.
  139. --Conquest? Drop the White Pony if it hasn't already been picked up.
  140. --Headless Horseman? Drop the Pony if it hasn't already been picked up.
  141. --C.H.A.D.? Drop Little Chad if it hasn't already been picked up.
  142. --Gish? Drop Little Gish if it hasn't already been picked up.
  143. --Steven? Drop Little Steve, or Steven if Little Steve has been picked up. (Steven has a 1/6 chance of Dropping anyway.)
  144. --A Horseman Of The Apocalypse? Drop a Meat Cube. Period.
  145. --Any other boss? Pick a boss item, drop it, and remove it. (This also happens if you already have a boss drop from above.)
  146. -Do none of the above apply and you just need an item? Pick a regular drop item, drop it and remove it.
  148. Items are only removed if it doesn't get thrown out and actually gets chosen. What determines if an item gets thrown out? Good answer! Let's find out.
  150. -If you've got at least three firing familiars following you, firing familiars will get thrown right out the window.
  151. --The firing amiliars it checks for are: Brother Bobby, Sister Maggy, Robo-Baby, Little Gish, Little Steve, Demon Baby, Ghost Baby, Harlequin Baby, Rainbow Baby, and Abel.
  152. --Level 2 Meat Boy doesn't count. Little Chub doesn't count either.
  153. -If you've picked up the item at least once, throw it out.
  154. -If you've collected the item in a previous run, there's a 20% chance it will get thrown out. That's right, the game favors new items.
  155. -Is the item not an "Upgrade"? Then it's good.
  156. -Is the item an "Upgrade"? Randomly throw it out.
  158. As previously said, if an item gets thrown out, it's still in the pool. It just doesn't get dropped.
  159. If the item generator goes all the way through and manages to not get a valid item, it tries again. And again. And again.
  160. In fact, it tries to drop a relevant and valid item 100 times!
  161. If it takes over 100 tries, it picks an item from the regular pool and removes it. It will drop it if it's valid. If not, it'll try again until it finds
  162. an item or bugs the hell out.
  163. Also! When it dips back into the regular pool and sees that the regular pool has 5 or less items remaining, ALL ITEM POOLS will get regenerated anew.
  165. But wait, what's this about "Upgrades" and randomly throwing them out? Well, there's a collection of items that the game considers to be very good.
  166. They're either straight upgrades, or the benefits it gives outweigh the negatives. Spacebar items are (usually) not "Upgrades".
  167. Items that can be found in places other than the Treasure Room are not considered to be "Upgrades".
  168. The game keeps track of the number of upgrades you pick up. Every time you pick up a new one, it increments a counter.
  169. When a game generates an upgrade, it randomly throws it out depending on the Upgrade Counter value. The more upgrades, the higher the value.
  170. The higher the value. The more likely it is an upgrade item will be thrown out! The RNG may hand you a game sometimes, but it really needs luck to be on your side.
  172. List of Upgrades:
  173. The Sad Onion, The Inner Eye, Spoon Bender, Max's Head, My Reflection***, Number One, Blood of the Martyr, Brother Bobby, Magic Mushroom, Raw Liver, Cupid's Arrow,
  174. Steven, Pentagram, Mom's Eye, Distant Admiration, Dr. Fetus, Wiggle Worm, Sister Maggy, Technology, Growth Hormones, Loki's Horns, Spider Bite, Lil' Chubby, The Small Rock,
  175. Super Bandage, Robo-Baby, Little Gish, Little Steve, The Halo, The Common Cold, The Parasite, The Wafer, Money=Power, Mom's Contacts, Ouija Board, Stigmata, Speed Ball,
  176. Prayer Card, Ipecac, Tough Love, The Mulligan, Technology 2, Chemical Peel, Bloody Lust, Epic Fetus, Daddy Long Legs, Fate, Black Bean, Sacred Heart, Tooth Picks, Holy Grail,
  177. Dead Dove, Guppy's Hairball, SMB Super Fan, Pyro, 3 Dollar Bill, Jesus Juice
  179. ***Even Ed and Florian know My Reflection can be terrible. That's why this item only adds .2 to the Upgrade Counter.
  181. You'll notice this list is most of the non-Spacebar items in the game. This means picking up more and more upgrades means you are more likely
  182. to find Spacebar items further down. A few items are missing from this list, however, most notably Mom's Knife and Polyphemus.
  184. Here are the odds of getting an Upgrade thrown out when chosen for a drop.
  185. ***These are not the odds of NOT getting an Upgrade, only the odds of getting an Upgrade passed over during item generation.***
  187. Upgrade Counter Chance of Throwing Out Upgrade
  188. 0 16.66%
  189. 1 76.19%
  190. 2 86.11%
  191. 3 90.20%
  192. 4 92.42%
  193. 5 93.83%
  194. 6 94.79%
  195. n 100 * (1 - (1 / (1.2 + 3n)))
  197. This is why Spacebar items can because much more common later on, especially if you haven't been getting many.

  403. *The Lucky Foot increases room drops by 10%.
  404. *Positive Luck increases room drops by 10%. (Taking any Luck Up pills past the first only helps with Tough Love.)

  406. *The Lucky Toe also has a 2 in 3 chance of adding an item to a chest.
  407. *Negative Luck is broken; each Luck Down pill increases room drops by 10%, and makes chests 10% more likely.

  421. *The Pony and the White Pony boost your speed to 150% if you're not already faster.
  422. *Picking up all the speed dropping items would decrease your speed to 30% base speed. If you were Maggy, that would decrease your speed to a sluggish 15%.
  423. *Technically, getting a 0% Speed through Speed Down pills and other nonsense would not render you immobile, as there is a small amount that the Base Speed is added to.

  489. --OTHER--

  547. ---SOME FINAL NOTES---
  548. If you make a 1,000 line function without breaking it up
  549. into smaller functions I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND FIND YOU
  551. Please remember basic arithmetic. If you subtract a
  552. negative number from a positive number the positive
  553. number gets bigger. One wrong symbol can screw
  554. everything up.
  556. Clever programming tricks are fine but people reserve the
  557. right to look at it and go "wow that looks terrible"
  559. And finally...
  561. Just because a game is coded enough to run well
  562. and give the initial illusion of a well-programmed game
  563. does NOT mean it is actually a well-programmed game!
  565. Thanks,
