[Heretic] No map def for E4M1
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.

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

Actually downgrading the WAD will not help as WADs do not contain MAPINFO. According to https://doomwiki.org/wiki/E6M3_(Heretic) and https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/pc/562682-heretic/faqs/36537 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 https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/utils/exe_edit/herdwngr and then patch it to version 1.2 https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Game_patch .
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.
