DOOM Retro v3.0.3

DOOM Retro v3.0.3 is now available, in 32-bit and 64-bit varieties. Its release notes are as follows:

  • The behavior of the -nodeh command-line parameter has changed. It will still disable the automatic loading of .deh files, .bex files and DEHACKED lumps, but will now load .deh and .bex files if selected in the WAD launcher or specified using the -deh command-line parameter.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby dogs spawned in front of the player using the spawn CCMD in the console would always be friendly, even when the friendly parameter wasn’t used. This bug also affected PWADs that would replace the dog using a DEHACKED patch. All monsters of that type spawned at the start of a map would be friendly and therefore attack and be attacked by other monsters. (An example of this are the nightmare demons in Eviternity.)
  • The following compatibility fixes have been implemented for Noiser’s DOOM 4 VANILLA:
    • D4V.WAD will now always be the last PWAD to be loaded if selected together with another PWAD in the WAD launcher.
    • All monsters are now correctly named when using the spawn CCMD and in obituaries in the console.
    • The summoner’s projectiles no longer have smoke trails.
    • The super chainsaw and mega doll are now rendered correctly.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • The word monster may now be used instead of a specific monster type to name the nearest monster to the player when using the name CCMD.
  • Only monsters who are alive can be named using the name CCMD.
  • Jumping will now always work as intended.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby looking up and down with a gamepad when the gp_invertyaxis CVAR was off would still be inverted, and when on would not be and also cause the player’s view to jitter.
  • The double shotgun sound can now be heard again in DOOM II’s cast sequence.
  • The crosshair displayed using the crosshair CVAR no longer needs the mouselook CVAR to be on.
  • The correct music will now be played on the intermission screen of episodes 1 to 4 when John Romero’s megawad SIGIL has been autoloaded.
