 +====== Hexen MAPINFO data lump ======
 +
 +MAPINFO is a WAD data lump that contains text-format metadata for one or more maps.
 +===== Dialects =====
 +
 +Since its introduction in Hexen, the MAPINFO definition language has seen many extensions and expanded syntaxes in other Doom source ports. These extensions have resulted in a set of somewhat conflicting "​dialects"​.
 +
 +==== Hexen ====
 +
 +Support for the [[http://​doomwiki.org/​wiki/​MAPINFO|Hexen dialect of MAPINFO]] was extended to all supported games as of Doomsday [[version:​1.15]] (by translating these definitions into DED format at runtime).
 +
 +All features in this dialect are available in all supported games, with the exception of hubs; which are currently limited to Hexen.
 +
 +
 +==== ZDoom ====
 +
 +The [[http://​zdoom.org/​wiki/​MAPINFO_(old_format)|ZDoom dialect of MAPINFO]] is detected so that it can be gracefully ignored. If encountered,​ unsupported features in foreign dialects result in warnings being logged (and if enabled, [[alert]]s).
