After Setting up Sidequest, ensure that your quest is still connected and that you have a green light in the top right-hand corner of sidequest. Please refer to this guide.

Now Here’s the Link to Download Doom3Quest Mod. Click “Install Latest Or Download App” while your quest is still connected to sidequest.

This step will install Doom3Quest Mod on your Oculus Quest without any errors.

Step 4: Creating The “BASE” Folder On Your Oculus Quest

Run the mod on your Oculus Quest, you will find it in the Unknown Sources section. The game will not run, but this will create a folder on our headset where we will then upload the game files.

Now, locate the folder on your PC where you have installed the game, by default the path should be the following:

« C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam /steamApps/common/Doom3/ »

and then open the folder called “BASE”.

Now, open the Quest or Quest 2 Drive that will appear on your PC while you are connected with sidequest and find the Doom3Quest folder and open the folder named “BASE”.

Step 5: Copying The Game Files And Playing Doom 3 In VR On Quest

Now from the BASE folder of the PC game that we had opened, select all the files that end with the .pk4 extension.

Drag or copy & paste all the selected files to your Oculus Quest’s Doom3Quest folder (please refer to the video above)

When they have finished copying, we can unplug our Oculus Quest from the PC and start Doom 3 VR game from the Unknown sources section.
