dhewm3 – a Doom 3 GPL source port, known to work on at least Windows, Linux, macOS and FreeBSD.

The goal of dhewm 3 is bring DOOM 3 with the help of SDL to all suitable platforms.

Bugs present in the original DOOM 3 will be fixed (when identified) without altering the original gameplay.

Compared to the original DOOM 3, the changes of dhewm 3 worth mentioning are:
– 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

Note that while the Doom3 source code has been released under GPL, you still need to legally own the game and provide dhewm3 the game data to play.
