DOOM Retro v4.0.5

DOOM Retro v4.0.5 is now available to download as either a 32 or 64-bit Windows app. Here’s a list of what’s changed since the last one:

  • DOOM Retro is now compiled using v16.9 of Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2019.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • The finale at the end of the third episode of DOOM is now displayed correctly.
  • You may no longer toggle widescreen using the + and keys, or open the help screen using the F1 key, when on an intermission or finale screen.
  • Certain fade transitions are now applied to the finales of both DOOM and DOOM II: Hell On Earth when the fade CVAR is on.
  • When displaying certain lumps from a PWAD that are only 320 pixels wide, and the vid_widescreen CVAR is on, the color of the surrounding pillarboxes will now be based on the most used color along the left and right edges of those lumps, rather than always be black.
  • A bug has been fixed whereby the wrong credits screen would be displayed in some instances.
  • The background of the help screen displayed using the F1 key now won’t animate.
