Heretic

In my opinion, the general Heretic topic can be useful for not very important messages. For example, such that I found 2 new (actually old) demos.

For a long time I noticed in the Gladiatr.zip text file, that there should be a demo in the archive, but any versions of this archive with this map that I found always were without it, only recently, looking in the old FTP mirrors, I found the archive with this map and demo, after all I was right. Only the time stamp of this demo is not original, I already set this date now, because from ftp where I took this archive - map and demo I got with wrong dates, I am only sure in wad and txt time stamp there.

With Helldeat.wad even worse situation, I got it from the man who found him in the old image PC Gamer CD #11 (oct 1995) without txt and also with wrong time stamp. After I looked inside this wad, I saw that there was some kind of mistake, all lumps duplicated in this wad, and I made the decision to fix it and deleted the copies of lumps. As a result, this is not the original file and I do not know the date of it and his author. Demo1 inside wad and playback fine.

I think, that both demos are recorded on version 1.0 (Gladidmo.lmp for sure), but they are played normally and on 1.3, not very interesting, just a demonstration of dethmatch maps, only for rare demo collectors, heh

--------------------
Also, I attach a small modification of the old Chocolate Heretic 2.3.0 version, it contains necessary improvements for the original Heretic 1.3 demo format. Maybe someone will come in handy this version for Heretic demo playback/recording in vanilla format.

Those weren't bad at all. Would be nice if they were complete though. :)

For a long time I see in txt for this map, that there should be a demo 'Aquaduct.lmp'. I downloaded the archives with this map from many places, but I never found this demo:

I have the wad 5 times, but no demo.
It probably was never included with the H!Zone release when the scooped it from some BBS. Lost forever.

Yes, most likely Aquaduct.lmp is lost forever, but who knows, maybe someday it will come back.

Found new 'old' demo Cortdeth.lmp in CD image 'The Complete 3D-ACTION Accessory Pack' (1995-08-28):

This is "-nomonsters' Heretic 1.0 demo, but playback fine on 1.3 version, nothing special, just another map demonstration.

I attach in the first post my small modification of the old Chocolate Heretic 2.3.0 version and slightly update Hexen version. For Heretic I transferred my work from jHeretic very quickly and not much testing this version, I hope it won't be broken. Maybe someone will come in handy this version for demo playback/recording in vanilla format.
