  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • The values of all CVARs that have been changed from their defaults are now highlighted when entering the cvarlist CCMD in the console.
  • Pressing the ENTER key now closes the console if nothing has been typed in.
  • These changes have been made to voodoo dolls:
    • They now move at the correct speed when on very slow scrolling floors.
    • The angle they face no longer changes once they teleport.
  • A bug is fixed whereby the BFG-9000’s secondary projectiles would fire off in the wrong direction in some instances.
  • The english CVAR now uses a value of british rather than international.
  • Several improvements have been made to translating certain words when the english CVAR is british.
  • Gibbed corpses now gib even more when reacting to further splash damage if the r_corpses_gib CVAR is on.
  • The vertical position of an arch-vile’s shadow when the r_shadows CVAR is on has improved.
  • A crash no longer occurs when pressing certain keys while the help screen is open.
  • The player’s health, armor and ammo in the alternate widescreen HUD will now quickly count up from zero when entering a map if the animatedstats CVAR is on.
  • A bug is fixed whereby the melee attack of monsters specified in DEHACKED lumps wouldn’t work if they used thing types 150 to 249.
  • The vertical positions of the text on the intermission screen have improved.
  • The vertical positions of the monsters’ shadows in DOOM II’s cast sequence have improved when the r_shadows CVAR is on.
