DOOM Retro v1.8.5

Point release DOOM Retro v1.8.5 is now available. It may be downloaded here, and its release notes are as follows:

  • More than one instance of –file may now appear on the command-line.
  • The amount of “map revealed” in the output of the playerstats CCMD is now always calculated correctly.
  • The number of times the player cheats, both in the current map and overall, as well as the overall amount of time spent playing DOOM Retro, are now displayed in the output of the playerstats CCMD.
  • BOOM’s MF_TRANSLUCENT flag is now supported in DeHackEd lumps and files.
  • When binding an action to a control using the bind CCMD, any other actions that are bound to that same control will now be unbound.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby the mouse pointer wouldn’t be released when pressing ALT + TAB to switch to the desktop.
  • The game will now pause slightly when the player uses a switch to exit a map, to stop the switch’s sound from stuttering.
  • Support has been added for certain hacks to the NODE lump of a map. See here for more information.
  • The chaingunner’s refire frame is now fullbright.
