Heretic Hack Editor (or HHE for short) is an executable editor for Heretic created by Greg Lewis (Tree). It is based on DeHackEd. The copy of the executable that HHE applies its .HHE patches to is named HereHack. HHE only supports HERETIC.WAD v1.0. To make it work with versions 1.2 and 1.3, some changes need to be made to the HHE.INI file. Unlike DeHackEd, the source code for Heretic Hack Editor was never released.


There were only two HHE releases:

  • v1.0 was released on February 13, 1995. This is the initial release based on DeHackEd v2.2.[1]
  • v1.1 was released on May 5, 1995. This is the final release based on DeHackEd v2.3. After that the development of HHE was discontinued.
