Playing Full PC Games on a Raspberry Pi 4

Playing a variety of PC games on Raspberry Pi 4 has long been a pipe dream, but not anymore. Thanks to advancements in emulation with box86, open source games with doom 3, or just the ingenuity of some frameworks the situation for running full PC games (even Steam games on a raspberry pi 4 windows 10 like environment) is looking bright for raspberry pi os.

#RaspberryPi4 #Doom3 #Celeste #Box86 #LinuxGaming

Here is what I did to run Doom 3:

sudo apt install linux-cpupower
sudo cpupower frequency-set –governor performance
sudo apt install libsdl2-dev libsdl2-image-dev libsdl2-mixer-dev libsdl2-ttf-dev libsdl2-2.0-0

git clone
cd dhewm3/neo/
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j4

Then move the following files to a Doom 3 or Doom 3 demo folder (you need to install this on a pc and move that folder over):,, dhewm3, libidlib.a

And then in that folder run: GALLIUM_HUD=simple,fps,cpu ./dhewm3

Here is a good write up that instead…
