Installation on Mac OS X

This page guides you through the installation of PrBoom.

PrBoom was tested with Mac OS X 10.4.7 (Tiger) but should also work on earlier versions.

Download the DMG image, mount it and copy the PrBoom application to your Applications folder.

You need the original Doom data files to be able to play. Depending on your Doom version these are called doom.wad, doom2.wad, tnt.wad or plutonia.wad. You can also get the Demo version from Doomworld , it's data file is called doom1.wad. Another option is the in progress free version called Freedoom.

Place the data file(s) in ~/Library/Application Support/PrBoom, so PrBoom can find them.


When you start PrBoom, you get a small frontend, where you can set the most common options.
