DOOM Retro v5.0.4

DOOM Retro v5.0.4 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:

  • These changes have been made when gibbing a corpse and the r_corpses_gib CVAR is on:
    • Gibbing already gibbed corpses now always works as intended.
    • Certain gibbed corpses spawned at the start of the map can now be gibbed further.
    • Obituaries are no longer displayed in the console for when a corpse is gibbed.
    • Gibbed corpses are now only randomly mirrored if the r_corpses_mirrored CVAR is also on.
  • The intermission and finale screens now pause if DOOM Retro’s window loses focus.
  • The player no longer continues to move across the map if moving when the automap is opened and the am_followmode CVAR is off.
  • A bug is fixed whereby the amount of cells the player had would be brighter than usual in the widescreen HUD when their BFG-9000 was equipped.
  • The player’s view is no longer affected when walking over certain linedefs in liquid sectors and the r_liquid_lowerview CVAR is on.
  • Buckethead’s music is now heard when playing SIGIL if SIGIL_SHREDS.WAD happens to be loaded before SIGIL.WAD at startup.
  • Obituaries displayed in the console when the player explodes a barrel using their BFG-9000 are now always correct.
