How to change The Succession Wars mod soundtrack

The Succession Wars mod v0.8.2 release includes music packs with Heroes 2 themes from both The Succession Wars, The Price of Loyalty, MIDI soundtrack and a special Heroes Orchestra music pack with Heroes 2 themes performed by the amazing orchestra!

You can change the music of Heroes 3 The Succession Wars mod by coping mp3 files from the:

“your_H3SW_v0.8.2_folder”\Mods\The Succession Wars 0.8.2\Music packs” (choose which one you want to listen to)

and copy m3 files to the: “your_H3SW_v0.8.2_folder”\Mods\The Succession Wars 0.8.2\mp3” folder

to hear themes from either The Succession Wars, The Price of Loyalty, MIDI soundtrack or the great Heroes Orchestra H2 covers!

The Succession Wars mod
Heroes 3 Complete GOG version (works only with this version)
or try WoG Folderonline source of Heroes of Might and Magic mods (not only Heroes 3 mods, but not Heroes 6 😀 ) and various goodies (like “Did you know” series) that I have managed to collect over the last 10 years for everyone who contributes to the running of the Heroes 3.5 Portal.

Music packs for Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Succession Wars allows to change the musical score of the soundtrack. Heroes of Might and Magic II can be considered having three soundtracks as town themes from the vanilla H2SW and PoL are different as well as having a MIDI soundtrack.

The “Complete” folders contains all the music needed in the game. Thus, the Complete SW folder is the standard music folder and the Complete MIDI contains all known MIDI tracks.
The other folders (SW, PoL and MIDI towns) contain only music for the original H2 towns (+ main menu in MIDI folder as well).

The last folder is rather special as it contains covers of H2 music performed by the magnificent Heroes Orchestra, which is a Polish group dedicated to the music of Heroes.
Much thanks to Heroes Orchestra for allowing us to use their beutiful renditions in-game.

Currently the list of Heroes Orchestra covers is:
– Main menu theme (SW + MIDI)
– Battle theme (HoMM I)
– Warlock theme (SW)
– Necromancer theme (PoL)
– Knight theme (SW)
– Wizard theme (PoL)
– Sorceress theme (SW)
– Grass theme
– Dirt theme
– Swamp theme
– Snow theme
– Desert theme
– Lava theme
– Sea theme
– Wasteland theme
– Enemy’s Turn theme
