Heretic.map for Shadow Warrior.
Single Play and Wangbang

Build time: 1 week
This is a Full conversion of the Heretic map E1M1 for Shadow Warrior.
-I've even included the original midi which can be used aswell.
To use the midi file in SWP just put He1m1.mid into the music folder and then select the midi in the menu when launching the map.
-The map is built upon the brightness level of 6. If you want it super dark, play it on 1 for the blind creepy factor. I play SWP on brightness 7 and DOS, 5.
How this particular map came into creation:
1: Used a wad2map conversion tool that converts the heretic E1M1 map into a duke3d map.
2: Most functions get converted over well for duke3d and the map is almost playable out of the gate, if you wanted to play a duke version, but we want SHADOW WARRIOR! So I then take the duke3d E1M1 and used Mapster to resize the entire map to be suitable for Sw.
3: Now, using a Duke2Sw map conversion tool I converted the map so it will launch properly in the Sw build editor. Nothing carries over from duke to sw in the conversion except the pure architecture of the map.
4: Now the long process of redoing the shading, textures, sounds, start points, functions, effects.. EVERYTHING. I got to a point where I reached a good enough (for my tastes) level of 1:1 conversion in relation to the original Heretic E1M1 and then my imagination kept going, adding some cool things and stretching out the gameplay of the map.
5: Steps 1-3 took minutes.. step 4 took a week, lol.
