Public bug reported: As currently implemented, a combination of freeaim=on plus mlook=off is unusable.
In past versions of PrBoom+ (e.g. 220.127.116.11 svn4462 as distributed with Ubuntu 17.10), enabling Allow Vertical Aiming and binding a key to Mouse Look would let the player press a button to toggle between classic Doom vertical auto-aim, and having vertical look and aiming. With freelook, if the player manually aimed up or down from the horizon, the vertical aimpoint would deflect accordingly, but only if an enemy hadn't been auto-aimed at. Such vertical aiming is essential in large, modern WADs where enemies are often beyond the auto-aim distance. In PrBoom+ 18.104.22.168 svn4531, enabling Allow Vertical Aiming seems to entirely disable auto-aim in the vertical axis. This is actually better for manual aiming, so is an improvement. Unfortunately, this behaviour persists even when Mouse Look is disabled, forcing the user to only fire at the horizon. Such a combination breaks pretty much all WADs. Therefore, PrBoom+ should temporarily disable Allow Vertical Aiming whenever Mouse Look is off.
