UPDATE:

As Requested I've updated it with the remaining Price of Loyalty tunes and relabled the gold ones that shared music with PoL to PoL/Gold.

Now the town themes should be finished as far as I know of any existing. I'm not bothering to put in my gold Necro and Knight town themes as they are just exact copies of Heroes 3 Necropolis and Castle themes. Hope you enjoyed the show!

Very nice! Many thanks.

As a final thing, given that you've done the title pages for Heroes 3 and 5, it'd be nice if you could also do them for Heroes 1, 2 and 4 (Heroes 4 has, I think, different themes for the expansion packs). I've always particularly liked the Heroes 1 and 2 title music. Also, Heroes 1 has a particularly nice win-game theme would would be nice to record for posterity... (pleasant guitar music with a group of all the creatures in the game standing around on the screen).

Correct, and Heroes III WoG has a different title theme.

I need to find a legitimate copy of Shadows of Death to be able to do WoG. Back in the day I knew a fair amount of people that only got H3 + AB but nothing further because SoD didn't add much to expand hotseat games, which is what happened to me. I doubt WoG will ever be made to work without SoD.

Also I'm not sure I'd do the Heroes 4 title screen (it's the only one in the whole series without any animation! So boring to look at.), but if I do I wouldn't be doing any of the expansions, since I don't pirate games =p

I never got the expansions back in the day because they really didn't add much to the original game. Heroes 3 and 5 had great expansions though for hotseat matches =D

P.S. I AM working on the title screens to Homm 1 and 2 =D

Since the PoL and Homm2 Title screens are almost 100% identical I'll use the same video for both, but I will use both the CD and Midi versions of the song since they are so different ^_^

An issue of Heroes 3 and 4 Complete from Sold Out Software is available on Amazon.co.uk for £2.78. Those versions contain all expansions. Get that, and you'll have SoD.

Wow, that is a great find... shipping from England though. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait for it to get here =D

Hmm, right about the sword... Never had standalone AB so can't say much about that, but H3Complete and SoD are static.

Well then, looks like we're both in for a treat in a month judging by the poll I put up and also that's about when my shipment should arrive (I can't afford fast shipping in this economy)

Okay, I did the town screens for Heroes 1 and 2, with the Cd and Midi versions of Heroes 2, I may if I feel like it capture the midi version of the song in DOSBox to give it that old soundblaster feel... but I won't if I don't feel like it =p

They are not in the town theme playlist, but I am putting what I can as a response to one another =D

In Heroes III the Fortress theme is the best, after that Tower theme
In Heroes IV I just love Chaos theme, it is simply epic ^^

Excuse me, would it be possible to add the start menu music as well? There is different music for the different H2versions, I know. And Same for H4 - New music and screens in the start menu. Good job!

Shyranis account was arbitrarily terminated by youtube. So you can search only for backups.

It's, well, bad.
