All your help with the shiny pet stats is greatly appreciated. It has been a long, and at times arduous, project for this old geezer. Of course, it was tougher at first, until I got used to it and saw what needed to be done, then was able to catch each bit and piece that might have been added or left out of the code.
Anyway, your continued watchful eye and editing as needed will also be appreciated. As is everyone's.
If you check the stats of the Doggy in the game the gem stats are "x0". That's why they're posted as that here. Although that might be incorrect, I haven't tested it, and it would be up to Isaac to correct. We just record what we're provided.
I just checked. I've equipped the Doggy, and picked up a gem. I still collected gems, so it definitely does not have x0 multiplier. Still, at this point we need to leave it as is.
Exactly. But it SHOULD be x1. Try equipping it and collecting gems. If it was x0 no gems should be collected initially. HOWEVER, as soon as any experience is gained, which wouldn't be long, the gems would start adding up.
The stats are actually x1, not x0. At level 2, kitty gives x1.04 coins and x1.04 gems, since x0.04 will give way less than what you get with no pets equipped. The stats go from x0 to x1.04 for level 2, then to x1.08 in level 3.
