Update here.

COOP mode works fine but we are attempting to create a MegaWAD which would combine all 5 episodes of Heretic into 1 brutal chapter.

Should be a blast if I can figure this out.

You don't need a megawad for that. There are multiple mods like Episodic EX that will do that for you.

I thought this one was totally forgotten... glad to see it's still being developed.

Not really a fan of the wand. I think I prefer Heretic's design to this one.

This is Heretic? Do you mean that you prefer the Hexen design?

Its a blast in coop mode.

Hi, are there any instructions on how to make this work?
I can't get it to work at all. I've loaded the files in the order they appear in the zip file on ZDL, launch from the heretic.wad and nothing happens.
It just loads vanilla heretic.
Thanks in advance!

Very strange.

What version of GZDoom are you using on ZDL? Can you post a screenshot of the ZDL panel showing the mod order?

First off, I'm totally loving this fresh take on one of the first game I've ever played. I've a question though: being somewhat of a completionist, I've been having trouble collecting all the items of any particular map - due to the armor and health drops, I presume. Is this a common thing?

Hello and thanks for the reply.

Glad you enjoy, so the items, I'm sure you can reach 100%, did you reach 100% with the kills?

Yep. Got 100% for secrets and kills. Keeping a close eye on item %, I notice that sometimes when monsters drop health/armor, the counter will either take a while to update, or increment the counter by a large margin suddenly. Could it be that the increase of monster drops that contribute to the item count is causing some chaos with the item counter?

Either way, this is not game-breaking by any means - all it does is prod at my completionist nature which I shall happily ignore if there're no countermeasures that can be taken. Thanks again for keeping this mod up to date!

Pretty sure its because the armor items might not have the COUNTITEM flag cleared

I see. Well, in that case, I'll just live with it. Thanks!
