Guide: LZDoom for RG351 Devices

Last updated: 19JUN2021 (see Changelog for details)

The ArkOS operating system for the RG351P now supports LZDoom, which opens up a bunch of possibilities when it comes to DOOM mods. So let’s look at how to set up your system for maximum fun. Note that LZDoom is supported on other devices that can run ArkOS, like the RK2020 and RGB10/RGB20, although these devices have only one analog stick, so it might not be as nice of an experience.

As of June 2021, LZDoom is also available on the 351ELEC firmware, which means you can use this guide for that operating system, too. See my 351ELEC section below.

Getting the first two DOOM games set up on a new device is a rite of passage. Heck, even the latest Nintendo Game & Watch device has been hacked to play DOOM. Luckily, no complex hacking is required to run DOOM on the RG351 devices, because the RetroArch PrBoom core is already loaded on your device, ready to send you back to 1993.

So in today’s guide we’ll show you how to set up DOOM on the RG351P’s many operating systems, how to tweak the settings to your liking, and how to run DOOM mods as well.

If you are an ArkOS user, be sure to check out this LZDoom guide, which will open up even more opportunities for you.

Guide: Brutal DOOM on the RG350

Last updated 22SEP2020 (see Changelog for details)

I recently published my Native Apps and Games guide, which includes an extensive guide and video on how to load various DOOM mods. Those instructions provide for a good portion of mods available; specifically, most “boom” or “vanilla” compatible mods (packaged as .wad files) will work with this method.

But many people familiar with the DOOM mod scene know that ZDoom (now called GZDoom) has become the most popular mod platform for DOOM-based games, and those mods (usually packaged as .pk3 files) are not compatible with my previous method. Luckily, thanks to some very helpful folks on Reddit and Facebook, I’ve created a guide that will allow you to play Brutal DOOM, one of the most popular DOOM mods of all time, on your RG350 devices.
