DOOM Retro v2.5.3

Hey marine! DOOM Retro does a few things differently to other DOOM source ports, and is intentionally minimalist in its design. Please visit the DOOM Retro Wiki for details.

DOOM Retro v2.5.3 is now available. It may be downloaded here, and its release notes are as follows:

  • Extensive optimizations have been made to further improve the overall performance and stability of DOOM Retro.
  • The power-up bar is now displayed in the alternate widescreen HUD when the player has the berserk power-up and their fist selected, and when the IDBEHOLDx cheat is used.
  • MOD and XM music lumps will now play correctly.
  • Improvements have been made to lowering the player’s view in liquid sectors when the r_liquid_lowerview CVAR is on.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby moving sectors could shudder when the vid_capfps CVAR was set to value other than 35 in some rare instances.
  • The bottom of masked midtextures submerged in liquid will now render correctly when the r_liquid_bob CVAR is on and the vid_capfps CVAR is set to value other than 35.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby some stray pixels weren’t being drawn in some rare instances.
  • Pain elementals can no longer spawn lost souls behind their target when directly in front of them.
  • The Hall of Mirrors indicator enabled using the r_homindicator CVAR will now work when in no clipping mode and freeze mode.
