Heroes III high score?

Postby grindan » Oct 31 2006, 8:54

Can anyone tell me if there is a maximum score points on in Heroes III?
I've tried many times to reach 500 but i don't think that's possible(my best score is 498)
If anyone has done it, i'll be happy to hear how :-D

Theoretical max is 500. Not sure if anyone has achieved it on a "normal" map.


score = (200-(days+10)/(castles+5)+A+B)*factor

A= 25 if your side (alone or with allies) kills all enemies (standart victory condition)
B= 25 if you (allies do not count) dig up the Grail

"days" of course is the time spent, and "castles" the number of towns you (allies do not count) own.

factor:
Easy= 0,8
Normal= 1,0
Hard= 1,3
Expert= 1,6
Impossible= 2,0

Important is also that the score is always rounded down. If the equation gives 364.999, your score is 364 not 365. Also days/towns ratio is rounded down to nearest integer before substracting it from 200.

Campaign score is the average of individual maps multiplied by 5.

Thanks a lot, that really answers my question. Now it's obvious that 500 score on "normal random" map is almost impossible and therefore no one has done it. But it's worth to try! :D

500 is difficult, but not impossible.

I can't say for certain, but I think the score formula in Heroes 2 is a lot simpler. You have a base score, which is simply determined by the number of days you took to win. The base score is multiplied by the difficulty factor (map difficulty and game difficulty). I think the theoretical max score is 450 but it would require you to win in 0 days. The highest I've seen using the 911 cheat is 449.
