DOOM Retro v5.0.1

DOOM Retro v5.0.1 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 version:

  • A crash no longer occurs when loading a savegame from a DSDHacked-compatible WAD.
  • A bug is fixed whereby no music or sound effects would play when opening DOOM Retro for the first time after installing it.
  • Panning around the automap using a controller’s left thumbstick when the am_followmode CVAR is off now works as intended.
  • These changes have been made when playing Smooth DOOM MBF21:
    • Bullet casings no longer disappear and leave blood splats on the floor.
    • Blood splats now appear around corpses spawned at the start of a map when the r_corpses_moreblood CVAR is on.
  • The savegame CVAR is now:
    • Updated when deleting a savegame in the save or load game menus using the DEL key.
    • No longer updated if the player cancels entering a savegame description in the save game menu.
  • A bug is fixed whereby WADs placed in the autoload folder were causing a “W_GetNumForName: PLAYPAL not found!” error at startup.
