Thank you for making this wilhitewarrior!

You're welcome :) Hope you all enjoy it
31 Jan 12:01 2019

Added rich presence support
7 Nov 10:12 2019
"Lootus Maximus" is not popping for me. I've gotten every item on multiple playthroughs but still nothing. Are there particular circumstances this pops on?
7 Nov 10:18 2019
No nothing special about it, just collect everything and it should pop. Are you absolutely positive you didn't miss anything?
7 Nov 12:58 2019
I'm certain, I double checked the Item FAQ on gamefaqs just to make sure. The only thing I can think of is using Humana instead of the spear on the troll the first time so I can have the spear at the end of the game if that would make a difference
7 Nov 17:38 2019
No that doesn't work. Its worked for everyone else tho :\ If you can upload a savestate somewhere and send it to me at a point right before you think it should pop it will make it easier for me to look into it tho

http://www.mediafire.com/folder/gsdfhwprskox9cn,arov9ioag0yjq6f/shared here's the save state, saved at the well before river styx, staff unassembled
8 Nov 5:29 2019
ahh yeah I see the issue, you left the other stones behind :) you gotta collect all 5
8 Nov 6:20 2019
Well damn, look at that. Didn't know they could all be picked up lol. Thanks for taking the time to help!
8 Nov 6:42 2019
No problem :)
