Introduction
So, here are 2 projects that have actually gotten DOOM 3: BFG Edition to run on the HTC Vive/Rift in full 3D, with motion controllers, roomscale tracking, and a functional UI. It’s basically the entire game in VR as if it were made to be played that way.

Fresh Steam Install or Uninstall/Reinstall is needed for both!

Game saves should remain intact under [Users/(your profile)/Saved Games/id Software] feel free to copy and save elsewhere just in case. (My saves are working, so yours will too.)

VR Mod "RBDOOM-3-BFG"
Fairly basic has working VR Controllers in classic FPS view. Dont' forget add a Texture Pack!




Download from Here:
https://github.com/Codes4Fun/RBDOOM-3-BFG/releases

Extract Zip in root directory of "Doom 3 BFG Edition"


Click on "RBDoom3BFG" Application to run game in your VR Headset


Next add a Texture Mod I suggest "Doom 3 BFG Hi Def"

VR Mod "Doom 3 BFG VR Fully Possessed"
All-in-One Doom-3-BFG VR + Texture Pack, simple install.exe has Body FPS view & Teleport!


Download from here:
http://github.com/KozGit/DOOM-3-BFG-VR/releases

Now Install the .exe


Click on "Doom 3 BFG VR Fully Possessed" Desktop Icon to run game in your VR Headset

Conclusion
It's worth noting as well, is that as far back as the original Oculus Rift Kickstarter, DOOM 3 was actually planned to be bundled with the Rift itself, before the deal fell apart. Perhaps these mod(s) helps unlock a piece of that original vision from id.

From those two "Fully Possessed" is actually superior. RBDOOM has no body/hands, has no VR options menu, and "comfort mode" there is horrible.

Why does vive keep getting boned? Exclusivity on VR is the worst thing for VR

I'm trying to combine Fully Possessed and the old_ammo mod which reduces the amount of ammo you get from pickups back to OG Doom3 amounts. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. If anyone knows a way, please contact me.

This guide has error. It says "All-in-One Doom-3-BFG VR + Texture Pack" where in fact you have to install HD textures and VR mod separately. Seems like all guides on Reddit about it are outdated and VR mod itself is almost dead (one dude forked it and fixed some issues, last update March 2020).

I recommend people use the second one (the Doom 3 fully possessed), the first one has a pretty terrible comfort mode

Also, the installer does not automatically find the Doom 3 install location, so make sure you select it (otherwise you will get an error regarding the default config)

I took a peek at the original instructions and it does support full movement so you guys dont have to teleport if you dont want to.

Does installing a VR mod disable achievements?

Does Doom 3 BFG VR Fully Possessed have a walk (no teleport) option?

Can I delete the Black frames while some scene?

Installed Doom 3 BFG. Installed the Doom 3 BFG VR Fully Possessed. Clicked the game icon to run the game:

"Couldn't load default config"

Any ideas?
