Story : Oh no .. not again .. I have the difficult
task to find a story for this level...
Well, here's the deal :
Play this level - Find a story -
Mail-it to me - If I find it interesting, I'll
put your lines in the text file of the complete
package of a whole episode for Heretic !..
I'm planning to use this level as ExM1 of a
whole new episode.. why not ? :-)
Well, if you wanna learn more about this
level, I should day that some areas require
a good control of your steps, because you
might fall into lava !

* Play Information *
Episode and Level # : E1M1 (For HERETIC)
This level has been tested with Heretic v1.3,
Shadow of the Serpent Rider, and works fine.
Single Player : Yes (works fine !)
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes (not tested yet, but should work properly !)
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes (not tested, but should work !)
NOTE: The level is a bit too small to provide a
nice deathmatch zone...
Cooperative mode might be really helpful if
you're playing in Black Plague skill...
However, I included a LMP demo to show you
how to beat the level when playing with the
hardest skill.. Just look below to learn how
to view this demo !
Difficulty Settings : Yes
Note: After being teleported, you'll see a small
swimming-pool in the main room... This pool, that
contains one or two enemies, has Statues+Orbs
If the Orb is Green, you're playing Easy level
If the Orb is Blue , you're playing Med level
If the Orb is Yellow you're playing Hard level.
So, if you don't remember what skill you're
playing, just look at them ;)
New Sounds : Not in this one, sorry dudes..
New Graphics : Just one ! The RSAC ADVISORY that is shown
at the beginning has been changed.. I do that
in almost all of my Wads, so that people can
know who made the Wad they play :)
New Music : YES !!
Well, this music is not really a very kewl one,
but it is, originally, one of my personal
MOD module files that I tried to convert to
You might find it nice or not nice at all.. Well,
at least, I tried to convert one of my music
modules, since I don't have any MIDI-tracker.. :-(
Demos Replaced : None, in order to avoid compatibility problems..
HOW TO SEE THE TWO DEMOS INCLUDED.
This Wad is packaged with two LMP demos.
You really shouldn't view these demos without playing the Wad
But, if you really can't beat this level without any cheat code
or any clue, then ok, you're allowed to view these demos..
You can view these demos after beating the level :))) Just to
see if you're a better player than me :)) But remember, in the
seconde demo, I tried to play so that the people that looks this
demo has sufficient time to understand what happens ... ;)
To view a demo, just type this :
HERETIC -FILE BECAREFL.WAD -PLAYDEMO [demoname,without the extension]
Demos are : FASTEST = This demo shows you how to end this
level in just 10 seconds :)
VIEWALL = This demo show you how to beat
this level when playing at Hardest
skill.. Shows you a nice strategy
* Construction *
Base : Completely new level
Editor(s) used : DEEP 8.76
Known Bugs : I tried to completely avoid textures misplacements
and display bugs.. There might be some of them
somewhere in this level, but they're not obvious
so it won't bother you.
Build Time : Several months.. since I started this Wad
one day, and I didn't continued to build it..
I should say this Wad represents 7 hours of
Hints : No hints !!! :)
However, there are some secret places :)
Try to find them !
