@Fish : I have to apologize to you. It really looks like it says "Op". But thats because the bottom line of the "g" from the top text "Grants flight" overlaps the lower text "Health Up" in such a way, that the Up looks like an Op... so thanks for reporting this issue. This bug will be fixed with the next update.

@Kelmat How did you know that? You some kind of mad scientist or something? :) Anyway, This is a great mod. So much better than alt+tab all the time.

@casualmlg You can unlock achievements while using mods, as long as you have already beaten mom's heart

Hi i'm new to this game. Wondering if using this mod disables unlocking and donation machines in the game, like using seeds does?

@Fish : i just looked into that and it definetly says "up" in both english versions.

@Wofsauge I meant that it says "op" instead of "up"

Bien utile et précis, je le conseil fortement :3

@Fish : for me it says "Grants flight" and "+1 Health Up", which is correct according to the wiki and PlatGod.

Holy Grail says +1 health op
