DOOM Retro v2.2.3

DOOM Retro v2.2.3, yet another minor point release, is now available. It may be downloaded here, and its release notes are as follows:

  • DOOM Retro is now completely portable. The configuration file, doomretro.cfg, is now saved in the same folder as the executable, savegames are saved in a savegames\ folder and screenshots are saved in a screenshots\ folder.
  • Optimizations have been made to further improve the overall performance and stability of DOOM Retro.
  • Minor changes have been made to some of the text in the console.
  • The width of any selected text is now accounted for when inputting text in the console.
  • The number of available displays are now rechecked before creating an external automap if the am_external CVAR is enabled through the console.
  • An RMAPINFO lump will now be used if present in preference to a MAPINFO lump to avoid conflicts with other DOOM source ports.
  • The keyboard shortcuts SHIFT + HOME and SHIFT + END are now allowed in the console to select all text to the left and right of the caret.
  • The r_berserkintensity CVAR now accepts a value between 0 and 8 inclusive instead of a percentage. It has a default of 2.
  • The expansion CVAR is no longer changed if nerve.wad is automatically loaded.
  • The player’s view will no longer jump slightly when dead and their corpse is sliding down stairs.
  • A teleport CCMD has been implemented that allows the player to be teleported to another location in the current map.
  • Fuzzy shadows are now applied to any thing whose SHADOW bit has been set in a DEHACKED lump.
  • The map number in the console and automap is now shown in the format E2Mxy in Back To Saturn X E2: Tower In The Fountain Of Sparks.
  • The r_bloodsplats_total CVAR is now calculated correctly once it reaches r_bloodsplats_max.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby palette effects from power-ups would remain on the screen after ending a game from the options menu in some instances.
  • The value of r_lowpixelsize will no longer affect the display of the title screen when the menu is open.
  • The F5 key can no longer be used to change the graphic detail when the automap is open.
