There are eight different short audio clips played at the beginning of every battle in HoMM III. The corresponding file names are battle0{0..7}.wav (contained in one of the .snd archives).

How does the game choose which one to play: is it random, or does it depend on the battle terrain / other factors?

  • I plated HoMM3 A LOT, as other HoMM games, but never was able to discover any specific pattern. My bet is that they are picked in a fully random manner. – acalypso Oct 31 '11 at 10:52

    I find it doesn't matter - they're all in the key of awesome! :-) – corsiKa Jan 4 '13 at 17:09
  • @acalypso, Seems like reverse engineering the code is the only way... – Pacerier Jun 7 '14 at 8:46

It's completely random from what I remember.

  • Please cite some sources. – Pacerier Jun 7 '14 at 8:45
