Red Key for Heretic
Description
Just a little mod that replaces the yellow key with a red one. I made this for use in Shadowcaster, but due to the sprite-based nature of the red key stuff, it didn't take long to work out that it could be used anywhere, really. So here it is - play any wad you want with it, use it in your own wad if you want to.

Misc. Author Info       : A hardcore DooMer who loves all it's similar
  games (esp. Quake 2 and Half-Life) but still
  thinks DooM is best.  Has decided to try his
  hand at making Heretic levels.

Description             : Just a little mod that replaces the yellow key with

  due to the sprite-based nature of the red key stuff,

  want with it, use it in your own wad if you want to.

*Playing Instructions*

This zip should contain the following files:

  REDKEY.WAD - The mod.
  REDKEY.HHE - HereHackEd patch - contains new game text. (not needed in ZDoom)
 REDLOAD.BAT - Batch file for loading the patch into a copy of heretic.exe
     HHE.EXE - HereHackEd, the program that loads the patch.
     HHE.INI - Contains HereHackEd setup detail (assuming c:\heretic is where your 
       Heretic files are - if not then edit the .ini file to enter the correct location)
   DEUSF.EXE - Prepares the new sprites for use with plain Heretic and then reverses
       the process afterwards.  (not needed in ZDoom).
 REDMERG.BAT - Batch file for merging the sprites with the IWAD.
 REDREST.BAT - Batch file for restoring the IWAD to it's original state.
  REDKEY.TXT - This file.

To play :  Click on redload.bat (you only have to do this once)
    then on redmerg.bat  (to prepare the sprites for use)

Then you can play, type "hereticr -file redkey.wad custom.wad" on the command line.
(custom.wad = any custom wads you wish to run also)
(leave that bit out if you just want to play the original)

When you've finished with the red key mod, click on redrest.bat (to restore the original sprites)

For ZDoom, simply type "zdoom -file redkey.wad custom.wad" on the command line.
(custom.wad = any custom wads you wish to run also)
(leave that bit out if you just want to play the original)
