  • Configurable FPS caps (including VSync and fixed animations)
  • Cross-platform multiplayer support, including IPv6.
  • SDL2 joystick/controller support.
  • Various fixes and improvements for bugs in the original game.
  • Native support for Linux and macOS.
  • Built-in support jkgfxmod texture packs.
  • Built-in support for GOG/Steam Ogg Vorbis soundtracks, with fixed looping.
  • Aspect-correct cutscene rendering, and windowed rendering without screen mode switching.
