DOOM Retro v5.0.5

DOOM Retro v5.0.5 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 version:

  • DOOM Retro now uses SDL v2.28.4.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • Minor changes have been made to the branding in the console.
  • The if CCMD works with boolean CVARs again.
  • Blood splats are now visible in the top half of the player’s view if not completely obscured by the map’s geometry.
  • If the player enters kill player in the console while buddha mode is enabled, their health is now reduced to 1%.
  • SIGIL.WAD is no longer autoloaded if a PWAD is loaded that contains an E1M1 lump.
  • If SIGIL.WAD or NERVE.WAD have been placed in the autoload folder:
    • They are now loaded before any other PWADs in the autoload folder,
    • But not if the PWADs already loaded contain any conflicting lumps.
  • NERVE.WAD now loads correctly if specified using the -file parameter on the command-line.
  • Minor improvements have been made to the highlight effect in the menu in some rare instances.
  • A bug is fixed whereby music changer objects would no longer work once loading a savegame.
