How to Setup and Configure QuestZDoom and its Launcher

There are two required programs to install to play QuestZDOOM on the Oculus Quest — the QuestZDoom launcher and the engine (Step 2 & 3)

Once installed, start the ‘launcher’ from your list of Unknown Sources in the Library tab inside your Oculus Quest.

From there you’ll choose which core game files to download, such as FreeDoom, followed by any other assets or mods you want to enable which can take a minute or more relying on your internet speed.

Every Mod is organized into columns: Core Games, Maps, Gameplay Mods, Weapon Packs, Textures, etc and you can download and install any packs according to your Preference. Like if you want more Blood when you kill an enemy, you can download that pack.

Step 4: How To Install Original WAD files

Install and Copy & Paste Original WAD files

Currently, if you want to use QuestZDOOM to play the original DOOM, DOOM II, Heretic, or Hexen, you can do that. To do this, you need to own a duplicate of the complete games currently on the PC. You can download these games via Steam

So here’s what you need to do :

  1. Navigate to the local files of your game installation. For example, DOOM II on Steam installed to SteamLibrarySteamAppscommonDoom2
  2. And from there open the ‘base’ folder.
  3. Locate the file named ” DOOM2.WAD ” and copy it.
  4. Now plug your Quest right into your COMPUTER and open SideQuest. Click the folder icon to open up the file browser on your Quest.
  5. Scroll down and open up the ‘QuestZDOOM’ folder in your Quest directory.
  6. Open the ‘WADS’ folder in this directory.
  7. Paste in the source WAD file for the original id game that you copied and would like to play, such as ‘DOOM.WAD’ or ‘DOOM2.WAD’.
  8. Voila! Simply Close SideQuest and unplug your Quest and now you can Play any original ID software games like DOOM, DOOM II Heretic, etc.
