DOOM Retro v1.6.1

DOOM Retro v1.6.1 has been released! It may be downloaded here. This is a small point release and the changes are as follows:

  • If a DeHackEd file (with a .DEH extension) is present with the same name and in the same folder as the selected PWAD, it will be automatically opened as well.
  • Improvements have been made to when the player slides against walls.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby the screen would not render fully after switching from fullscreen to windowed modes when pressing ALT + ENTER.
  • Several compatibility fixes have been made when using DeHacked files and lumps.
  • Savegames for Back To Saturn X are now separated by episode.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby HacX: Twitch ‘n Kill wouldn’t load at all. Specific support has now been added for it.
  • Fake contrast is now applied to outdoor areas again.
  • Thing triangles no longer appear for the invisible corpses in Chex Quest when using the IDDT cheat in the automap.
  • The default value of snd_maxslicetime_ms has been changed from 120 to 28. This is consistent with Chocolate DOOM’s default, and reduces the slight lag when playing sounds.
  • The centeredweapon setting has been added to doomretro.cfg. Setting it to true will center the player’s weapon each time it’s fired (the default). If false, Vanilla DOOM’s behavior is used.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby input would momentarily become stuck if the splash screen was skipped at startup.
  • Blood splats are now green in Chex Quest as intended.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby switching to and from the chainsaw using the number keys really quickly would cause either a crash, or the player’s weapon to disappear completely.
  • The player’s weapon bob is now consistent with Vanilla DOOM.
