DOOM: The Definitive Homebrew Edition for PS4 / PS5 by yours truly @SnakePlissken aka _SnakePlissken1 on X and snakeplissken2862 on YouTube with the Devs at is the absolute best way to play DOOM & DOOM II on Jailbroken PS4 consoles in the PlayStation 4 Scene and Hacked PS5 consoles in the PlayStation 5 Scene using the 4.03 PS5HEN PS4 FPKG Enabler, 4.50 PS5HEN PS4 FPKG Enabler, 4.51 PS5HEN PS4 FPKG Enabler or other payloads via the PS5 Kstuff Porting Tool! 🤩

This time the engine that started it all, PlisskenDooM now at v3, has been enhanced to run all episodes of DOOM (no longer just the first episode) and on top of that it also runs DOOM II featuring all its new weapons, enemies and mechanics.

Support has been bumped up to Ultimate DooM standards meaning that if can run any version of DOOM or DOOM II .wad (where all the data is) files that have been released; up to DOOM and DOOM II .wad's from the BFG edition!

Furthermore, there are dynamic lights everywhere and EVERYTHING from the particle system to graphical renderer right down to each and every texture and sprite has been reworked. The entire game has been of a revision and/or has been REMASTERED into what could be considered the finest DOOM release ever, regardless of platform; however perhaps you should download and be the judge, rip and tear until it is done.

  • The shader on the dead pinky demon and some other things needs to be fixed, sometimes it renders like a 2d billboard that dose not face the camera.
  • We are working on a fix for Sectors of maps not being lit properly and are at full brightness when they shouldn't be, for example: when you obtain the blue keycard on that one level and then the lights cut off the room should be dark, there are no dark rooms in this build and its our top priority to fix this issue.
  • This is early alpha stages and a lot needs to be done still, but this is to good so far not to release: it had to be done. :)
  • The pause menu is very buggy, try not to use it unless you want to select a different chapter. The options button opens pause menu and R3 (right joystick button) closes the main menu wile the Fire button (R1) skips the intermission scoreboard screens.
  • The weapon tilting and bobbing on the pistol is experimental so I decided not to put it on any other weapons until its complete. Feel free to tell me what you think of this feature, feedback appreciated.
  • Some switch and teleport walls and flat textures are not aligned correctly, will fix this in future update.
  • I decided to release this now before I 'enhance' this to such a degree that people may not appreciate it as some like things to be a 1 to 1 port of the original. My plans for future updates are to make this so next-gen that it would be dame near indistinguishable from what it is today. In the short term I plan on fixing the blood particle system, currently the timer on blood decals on walls and floors are so short it causes issues with resetting scale of these objects in the scripts: you'll notice on some levels blood decals are large, on others they are small.
  • The end goal is to replicate something like the mod 'BRUTAL DOOM' where the user can execute fatalities, infact I would like to replicate this mod almost 1 to 1 in future update.
  • Thank you for playing and downloading.
  • I have basic .pk3 support in editor but can't replicate the code of the .zip library to function on PS4 / PS5, so for now there is no .pk3 mods folder, sorry about this. However there may be .pwad functionality if you can find the streamingassets/pwads folder in the game installed location via FTP, but this is not been tested on platform.
  • This game features components from another doom in unity project, added to PlisskenDooM engine to further support. The doom in unity project was decompiled by myself and recompiled elements back into unity within the master PlisskenDooM project source code template. The name of their work was DOOMITY as featured on here: DOOMITY Public Beta Released

:alert: The save and load features in the pause menu are still under development, clicking on save seems to cause the game to go into a state where all you can do is restart the app so this option should be avoided for now.

I remember playing this as a kid in the early 90s, and I still remember IDDQD, simply because we were so bad at the game.

Flash forward to today and I'm old and I'm about certain I'd still need to go into godmode to finish the game, simply because I'm old. I just don't got it now more. Can't wait to see how playing this on a PS4 pans out. Maybe I do still gots it.
As an embedded hardware engineer, I have always been amused by the phrase 'but can it play doom.' People port the game over, get controls, blitting and maybe sound up, and call it done. But passion projects like this one really shine. I was shocked going over to doomworld and seeing how active the forums are with all kinds of projects from fans.

Like others in this thread, I still remember installing the shareware version from 2 x 3-1/2" 1.44mbyte floppies. IDDQD and IDKFA will live rent free in my head forever :)
It's always refreshing to see more stuff being cranked out for DOOM any shape or form, especially now with the announcement of Dark Ages.

Now if only we could get another Duke Nukem game...
agreed few games have such longevity, and cult following such as doom. its amazing has been for as long as it has existed and im aure will continue to exist. things like this ensure doom will continue to be one mother fudger of a game.

it seems everything that gets hacked for arbitrary code somehow some way gets doom ported to it and everytime its freaking legendary lol. thank you for this port, i will be sure to grab and use it asap!

i also remember using the 'floppy' discs to install doom nad other games, windows 95 for the win!! and yesh IDDQD, IDKFA, IDBEHOLD x, IDCLIP, and the rest have been burned into my brain cells, i couldn't forget em even if i tried, the only way to do that would be to scoop pieces of my brain out with a spoon!!
so before we move onto releasing DOOM 2 DLC's for DEFINITIVE DOOM like No Rest For The Living, Plutonia, etc. there is something special that will come out first. will bring it way back even further as we present onto the community Wolfenstein 3D on PlisskenDooM engine v3. Here is a video:

PS4 Wolfenwitz (PS4 / PS5 Wolfenstein 3D Homebrew Game)

and its almost done! should take just a few more days until completion

someone just reported to me that if you plug in certain keyboards to your PS4 and type IDKFA it gives you god mode, (or was it every item). so in theory i should be able to program keyboard and mouse but this would need further testing.
