Raspberry Pi 4 is an amazing hardware, and now being able to play some great titles like Doom 3 makes it even cooler!! this is a tutorial on how to install Doom 3 on raspberry pi 4!! Thanks for the view!
Full version of Doom 3 or Demo ► Doom 3 Demo (windows)
dhewm3 Doom 3 github ► https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3
SDL2 ► https://www.libsdl.org/
Raspbian Pixel ► https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
Balena Etcher ► https://www.balena.io/etcher/
Doom 3 (i.e. Raspberry Pi)
Step 1: Install Raspbian Pixel
First you will need to download Raspbian Pixel Desktop version.
Now we will need a piece of software called etcher to write the image onto our SD card and USB Storage device.
Step 2: Check for updates
It is always a good idea to check for updates even if it is a freshly installed OS.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade
Step 3: Downloading required dependencies
Open up a terminal and type
sudo apt-get install libfontconfig-dev qt5-default automake mercurial libtool libfreeimage-dev \ libopenal-dev libpango1.0-dev libsndfile-dev libudev-dev libtiff5-dev libwebp-dev libasound2-dev \ libaudio-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libxi-dev libxinerama-dev libxss-dev libesd0-dev \ freeglut3-dev libmodplug-dev libsmpeg-dev libjpeg-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libvorbisfile3 libcurl4 cmake
Step 4: Compiling SDL2
lets make a temp folder to keep everything in one place
now we can change over to that directory
alright, it’s time to download SDL2
hg clone http://hg.libsdl.org/SDL cd SDL ./autogen.sh ./configure --disable-pulseaudio --disable-esd --disable-video-wayland \ --disable-video-opengl --host=arm-raspberry-linux-gnueabihf --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
now we need to download the 3 add-ons and extract them
cd .. wget http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_image/release/SDL2_image-2.0.5.tar.gz wget http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_mixer/release/SDL2_mixer-2.0.4.tar.gz wget http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_ttf/release/SDL2_ttf-2.0.15.tar.gz tar zxvf SDL2_image-2.0.5.tar.gz tar zxvf SDL2_mixer-2.0.4.tar.gz tar zxvf SDL2_ttf-2.0.15.tar.gz
then we need to build and install each one
cd SDL2_image-2.0.5 ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install cd .. cd SDL2_mixer-2.0.4 ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install cd .. cd SDL2_ttf-2.0.15 ./autogen.sh ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install cd ..
Step 5: Compile dhewm3
lets grab the git repo
git clone https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3
now we will need to make a build folder and cmake
cd dhewm3/neo/ mkdir build cd build cmake .. make -j4
now you should see these 4 files needed to run Doom 3
these are the files need to be transferred over to your Doom 3 or Doom 3 Demo folder.
you can either purchase the game via Steam or download the demo. you should be able to find the files in steamapps/Doom 3. Transfer whole doom 3 folder over to your raspberry pi and enjoy!
Step 6: running Doom 3
navigate over to your doom 3 folder and execute
for FPS and CPU counter
Thanks for following along!! hope you enjoy!
