In Response To: Re: watch your step sectors (Hopper)

: The game also tracks each type of item you pick up, separate from the trigger
: 16. The only use I can imagine would be to show the item-detail dialog the
: first time you pick up a new trinket.

The dialog is covered by hotspot 16, independently of the seenItems table.

The only use I know of for the seenItems table is the Violet Crystal. Every time you enter the Labyrinth, the game completely erases and rebuilds the level. It always starts with an empty cell right in the center, at (16,16), and grows the maze randomly from there. It then puts a Violet Crystal in that center cell, but only if you've never picked one up. It doesn't want you returning here to get more Violet Crystals.

Tip: if you want to dispose of garbage, like Nazi propaganda or overproduced ammo, Labyrinth is a good dumping ground. When you leave, anything you've left behind on the ground is gone forever.

The reason you may want to get rid of junk is to make more room for corpses. There's a hard limit of 500 items per level, including corpses, mushrooms, dropped items, living critters, bullets, et al. The +1 bonus per 250 kills means you want plenty of room for corpses.
