  • DOOM Retro is now built using v17.3.3 of Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022.
  • Several optimizations have been made to further improve the overall performance and stability of DOOM Retro.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • The amount of time the player has been in the current map is now displayed in the automap if the am_playerstats CVAR is on.

  • The position of the current map’s title in the automap has changed in some instances.
  • The colors of the power-up bar in the alternate widescreen HUD are now inverted while the player has an invulnerability power-up or the r_textures CVAR is off.
