Description : "Wyvern Heights"
This well designed level has quite a few areas to discover, it takes
me (the author) about 18 minutes to complete the entire level with
100% kills and all secrets found in skill 4 mode.
Please note that you must be alert in locatating certain switches
and doors that might not look like the ones you're used to - this is
by design for reasons of creativity. Different, but well done.
The texture alignment is outstanding (nice wall switches) and to
top it off, there are a ton of new graphics contained in this file...
Don't be surprised if you discover some familiar bitmaps along
the way...There are some textures in this file from "Rise of the
Triad" by Apogee Software, as well as Doom 1 and 2 from id
I thought it would be wonderful to see all my favorite textures in
one level...well, here it is and I'm sure you'll agree that they all
look great together.
I would recommend at least a 486DX2/66 with 8 Megs of RAM to
enjoy the level fully. This is the system I used to write Wyvern
Heights - it runs great on my computer, no slowing down (thanks
again RMB!). I wish every author would use it...
Oh, one more thing...Please, no codes! There is ample ammo
and if you're semi-experienced at Heretic then it will be a good
WAD for you to practice your combat stategies...just don't cheat.
To play this file with your registered Heretic, simply unzip the Hwyvern.zip
into your Heretic directory, then go to that DIR. and type the letters (in small
Then hit Enter and you're off to Wyvern Heights in Skill 4. If that's too hard
for you then you can simply manually type the line below and select your
own difficulty setting.

* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch (with my bare hands!). This file took the better
part of two weeks to complete. Again, the texture alignment took the
longest time (it has to be right!).
Editor(s) used : DeeP/HeeP - Excellent Heretic/Doom editors - I have conquered the beast!
WinTex/DeuTex - Excellent WAD compiler. The best freeware $ can buy!
RMB - Made this WAD 88 % more efficient. (Use this program, folks!)
PaintShop v.3 - Great shareware graphics program. Heretic perfect.
Known Bugs : Absolutely, positively NO problems with this file. W.H. checks out 100%
in the HeeP checks (try that some time for kicks).
