What are some cool Isaac mods?

This mod is meant to stop the need for players to have an extra window open for Platinum God or The Binding of Isaac's gamepedia page, by porting the Wiki's contents into the game in a simple to use menu.

- Press [c] or [f1] to open the menu on keyboard, press both joysticks on controller.
- Displays thorough information for all of the items in game.
---- Displays mod name (or none if Vanilla).
---- Displays Item Name.
---- Displays the Item Sprite.
---- Displays the Item Description.
---- Displays the Item Itempools.
---- Displays the gamepedia's entry on the item.
- Option to autogenerate modded items into the Encyclopedia.
- A nifty submenu to see your current inventory and items.
- A useful submenu to see every item, trinket and else laying on the room.
- Displays thorough information for all of the characters in the game.
---- Displays mod name (or none if Vanilla).
---- Displays Character Name.
---- Displays Character Completion (localized inside the mod).
---- Displays the gamepedia's entry on the Character.
- Easy to use API. (Documentation here)[]

- External Item Descriptions: Encyclopedia heavily relies on this mod to autogenerate modded items' descriptions, it is therefore recommended to combine the two when playing.

- While modded items get autogenerated into the Encyclopedia, it is still recommended to manually add support if you want to display your items's itempools, or more thorough descriptions than what EID allows (due to the limited screenspace).
- If the autogeneration setting is on, you might experience a slight lag spike the first time you open a submenu.
- All of the Wiki entries in this mod were autogenerated using a python script, so there might be a couple of broken entries, make sure to report them if you see them. and reviewed by hand!
- The Status menu doesn't display items in order of collection, because that would be literal hell on Earth to implement :P
- It is also recommended to manually add your own characters, it's really easy and doesn't take much time (considerably less time than items, that's for sure!). Otherwise you run the risk of the character autogeneration not properly getting your character's sprite or data.

If the menu cannot be opened with the safe key [F1] or some wiki entries are missing, you probably got a download failure. The mod is pretty big and thus needs some time to properly copy over files when you launch it for the first time or during an update.

To fix it, follow these steps:

1. Unsubscribe from the mod.
2. Go here C:\Users\user\Documents\My Games\Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ Mods and delete the folder called Encyclopedia_2376005362.
---- 2 (REP): Go here C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Binding of Isaac Rebirth\mods\ and delete the folder called Encyclopedia_2376005362.
3. Go here C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\250900 and delete the folder called 2376005362.
4. Launch your game, and once the start screen loads, close it.
5. Resubscribe to the mod again.
6. Launch the game and DO NOT close it until the start screen loads.

Mods copy over files during the black screen when the game is launched, while it may look like the game froze or crashed, you need to wait until it loads properly, otherwise you will interrupt the process and get a download failure.

Sadly there will be no localization for Encyclopedia, as that would require maintining all of the wiki descriptions in other languages (which would most than likely need to be translated by hand). Not only that, but it would increase the weight of the mod by A TON which is unviable, but the biggest factor is that Dead Sea Scrolls (the menu library) does not support special characters like the ones used in other languages.
I hope you understand.

verifying integrity of the game files fixed the issue, i dont know why it even got corrupted in the first place but it works with every single one of my 130 mods so yeah just wanted to post my solution for the issue in case anyone gets the same issue down the line
NITROZ Jun 27 @ 11:58am 
ok thanks for trying to help

Idk what to tell you, that sounds like a steam issue, not an issue with the mod. What steam decides to do or not to do is beyond my control.
NITROZ Jun 27 @ 11:05am 
ok the mod doesnt even do anything when i subscribe to it anymore, i did all the steps, i uninstalled, opened the game, closed the game, went to install the mod and steam doesnt even download it for some reason, this is so weird it doesnt even pop up in the mod list in tboi

i probably phrased it wrong then my bad, ill try finding the incompatible mods then i hope it’s not too important, thanks

That should be irrelevant, you're saying that pressing subscribe does nothing, not that the mod doesn't work in-game. I'm assuming by this you mean Encyclopedia is not on your mods folder, on the workshop folder, or let alone in the mod menu in-game.

If any of these points is false, then I don't know why you phrased it like that instead of just saying the mod isn't working for you.

There are some mods that are incompatible with encyclopedia, you can check your console to look for errors. They will probably point to Encyclopedia, so you'd have to disable mods one by one (or in chunks) to figure out which one/s are causing the errors.

i did im not blind, still doesnt work, i almost deleted everything in the process, is the mod incompatible with other mods?
AgentCucco  [author] Jun 27 @ 1:24am 
Follow the proper reinstall instructions instead of pressing subscribe over and over
NITROZ Jun 5 @ 3:33am
