The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth – Use Mods on Repentance Early

Use mods on repentance before actual mod support.


Keep in mind this can be quite tedious and not really worth the time doing but if you really cant wait for item descriptions then you can do this. Also keep in mind your game will not save and achievements will be disabled while doing this and all your settings like sound, size, found hud, etc, will be changed and you’ll have to re enter the settings everytime.

To start off you must go to your ” My Games ” folder location which is by default:

  • C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\My Games\

From there you want to first open the folder labeled ” Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ ” and delete the options.ini file, this makes it to where the game won’t fall back to that file and actually load mods.

Next you want to open the ” Binding of Isaac Repentance ” folder also located in the ” My Games ” folder and do the same, please note that everytime you would like to play modded you must delete this options.ini from repentance, the afterbirth+ one will stay gone.


Now that you’ve done that you can simply start the game and notice your mods should have loaded but they will be greyed out thats normal, obviously not all mods will work but most I’ve tried have worked with little error. Keep in mind mods are disabled for one reason or another, there’s obviously a reason these are disabled.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
