Public bug reported:
As currently implemented, a combination of freeaim=on plus mlook=off is
In past versions of PrBoom+ (e.g. 22.214.171.124 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+ 126.96.36.199 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.

Turning Mouse Look off should also disable Allow Vertical Aiming
