  • Optimizations have been made to further improve the overall performance and stability of DOOM Retro.

  • Hanging decorations will no longer drop to the ground when over a liquid sector that moves.

  • A stray black pixel has been removed from under “N” characters in the menu.
  • The WINDOWS key can no longer be pressed when fullscreen, as intended.
