===Known issues with Zdoom based ports===
There are a couple of issues with E3M8 in ZDoom (as of writing) and its derivatives, due to differences in the behaviour of these ports to the original Heretic.
1. The exit teleporter will lower prematurely.
2. The stairs will not build after D'sparil's death.
This means players running the HTC on ZDoom can use the former issue to cheat and skip battling D'sparil. There is a secret alternate way that allows a player to get up said stairs which means the latter issue won't cause the player to get stuck if using ZDoom.
