While I don't have the original version of Heretic to confirm, the non- SOTR version of Heretic comes with an E4M1.

This map was moved to E6M3 in SOTR.

The way Dday's map def's are set up currently doesn't allow access to this map.

Yeah, upon reflection, I forgot that Dday has a default map def it uses for maps with no specific def assigned.

Still, would be cool if somehow this map could get a proper def in Dday.

There is a diff file to downgrade heretic.wad from version 1.3 to 1.2

Should be simple enough to fix this.

#7 Updated by Drako about 5 years ago

Actually downgrading the WAD will not help as WADs do not contain MAPINFO. According to and the title of this map is American Legacy. It seems that the MAPINFO for this E4M1 in v1.2 is the same as for E6M3 in v1.3 (SOTR).

It is possible to downgrade heretic 1.3 to 1.0 and then patch it to version 1.2 .
It turns out that there is no title for map e4m1 in automap in both versions 1.0 and 1.2. Also there is no trace of the title in heretic.exe.
It seems that the only way to reach that map is by using the cheat code "engage41". I attach several screenshots from version 1.0.

Are you suggesting the title should be removed?

The title "American's Legacy" is an unofficial one, but I think it's appropriate to include it for E4M1.

#11 Updated by Drako about 5 years ago

I agree with you, it should be included. However, if there is ever going to be a "pure vanilla option" that title should not be displayed.
