Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders

How to get Heretic to work on Windows 8 without downloading any sourcecodes or ports
So, getting Heretic to work on Windows 8 is not a long, nor difficult task. I'd like to point out that I did actually get my help from the internet, but I did have to improvise a bit.
First, go to OS (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > Heretic Shadow of the Serpent Riders > base
Right-click HERETIC and go to 'Properties' then set compatability mode to Windows 95.
Then, go to heretic.conf and open it with Notepad.
Change 'fullscreen=true' to 'fullscreen=false' and 'waitonerror=true' to 'waitonerror=false'.
Then, open dosbox.conf and scroll down to where it says 'waitonerror=true' and change it to 'waitonerror=false'
Make sure you save these changes and close the files.
Go to your Steam Library and go to Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders and click 'Play'
If it still doesn't work, like it did for me, go to doom2.conf and change 'fulldouble=true' to 'fulldouble=false'
After this, it should all work.
Hope this helped you! :)

P.S. This will work in any game that uses DOS box such as Doom, Heretic, or Hexen

I just set fullscreen to false and it worked. However the graphics was too slow. So I changed the output to opengl and it was fine.

Change output=ddraw to output=opengl in the file mentioned above ^^, heretic.conf
[win 8] ty robes that worked perfectly for me too
Thank you so much this worked for my game an now my husband asked me to do it for his DOOM's lol
Yes just need to download a source port like zDoom and export the wad file into a folder and your ready to go.
abra o arquivo heretic.conf dentro da pasta do jogo com bloco de notas e altere output=ddraw para output=opengl , essas são configurações de áudio resolução tela cheia ou não e outras vlws
