Create the directory and save the following files there: \begin{description} \item[rockdoom.wad] The Rockbox \fname{.wad}, based on \fname{prboom.wad} from prboom-2.2.6 \item[Your wad files] Copy all Doom wads you wish to play into that directory. \end{description} The needed files can be found at \url{http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/PluginDoom} To play addon wads create the \fname{addons} directory within doom. Place wad files in this directory. Currently doom only supports 10 addons in the directory. A free alternative for Doom 2 is FreeDoom (\url{http://freedoom.sourceforge.net}). This can be used in place of \fname{doom2.wad}, or it may be used as an addon in Doom, by placing it in the \fname{addons} directory. \subsubsection{Menus} \begin{description} \item[Rockdoom Menu: ] The Rockdoom menu is shown when Doom is first launched. This is the only time it can be accessed (before starting the game).
