DOOM Retro v2.7.1

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

DOOM Retro v2.7.1 is now available. It may be downloaded here, and its release notes are as follows:

  • The player will now move correctly when using a gamepad.
  • The r_diskicon CVAR will now be turned on when vanilla mode is enabled.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • The restartmap CCMD will now restart the correct map when playing E1M4B: Phobos Mission Control or E1M8B: Tech Gone Bad.
  • The help screen’s background when pressing the F1 key is now displayed better when using a custom colormap from a PWAD.
  • If the super shotgun was selected by the player more recently than the shotgun, it will now be selected when pressing the 3 key, and vice versa.
  • Improvements have been made to the gradual lighting effect under doors and crushing ceilings.
