Dhewm3 is a source port for the original Doom 3, but does not support the BFG Edition.

Dhewm3 also formed the basis for Potatoom, a proof-of-concept source port for the PlayStation Vita.


  • 64-bit port
  • SDL for low-level OS support, OpenGL and input handling
  • OpenAL for audio output, all OS-specific audio backends are gone
  • OpenAL EFX for EAX reverb effects (read: EAX-like sound effects on all platforms/hardware)
  • Better support for widescreen (and arbitrary display resolutions)
  • A portable build system based on CMake
  • (Cross-)compilation with Mingw-w64


The following mods are certified to work.

Conversion for Doom 3: Phobos has been mooted upon completion.
