DOOM Retro v5.0.7

DOOM Retro is intentionally minimalistic in its approach, and does a few things differently if
 compared with other modern DOOM source ports. Open the ¥ DOOM Retro Wiki for details.

DOOM Retro v5.0.7 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 a spectre touches the bottom of the screen in some instances.
  • Minor changes have been made to text that is output to the console.
  • Minor improvements have been made to the border of the menu’s background.
  • The help screen is now shown when pressing the F1 key while playing the registered version of DOOM.
  • A bug is fixed whereby stairs rising up from the floor wouldn’t rise to their correct height in some instances.
  • Changing the vid_capfps CVAR to 35 now caps the framerate at 35 FPS again.
  • If the vid_capfps CVAR is off or greater than 60, and the vid_vsync CVAR is off, the framerate is now capped at 60 FPS when on the title screen, in the menu, in the console, or the game is paused.
  • The frames per second are now displayed in the menu when the vid_showfps CVAR is on.
  • Minor improvements have been made to determining when to lower the player’s view if the r_liquid_lowerview CVAR is on.
  • A bug is fixed whereby entering kill monsters in the console could then affect splash damage to the player.
