Taken from Celestial Heavens:

------------------------------------------------
Russian IT magazine Computerra has published an interview with Sergey Orlovsky, the founder of Nival Interactive. In this interview also Heroes V development is mentioned, and we can learn the following:

1. The new game will bring a lot of innovations, but they will develop ideas found in earlier Heroes games.
2. JVC was offered to join the development process, but he refused.
3. Rob King is composing music for Heroes V.
4. A number of ex-3DO employees helped Nival with Heroes V development (although it isn not said exactly how).

Unfortunately, full text of the interview is not available in the net, yet.

Maybe because all of the HoMM titles had Supreme-Arch-King-Queen-Lord-Monarch-Sultan-Great music?
Its so good I play it on my MP3 player, its so good Im having trouble listening to music in other game because it is so pale in comparison.
Besides, music is important by setting the mood, and HoMM titles always had that working wonderfuly for them (though I kinda liked the IV music less than III and II, not by much though).

Hmm... Rob King works... but there are tons of better composers.

Personally ive taken a liking for the music composed by Marc Derell... real good stuff...
And he usually grasps the feeling in the game really.

HOMM music always got me agitated after a while in game and I usually set it to OFF after a while... and HOMM-IVs music felt like a real rip-off from somewhere...

To tell you the truth, the WBCIII music got boring for me moderately quickly, while I still enjoy the HoMM III music (HIV is a whole different issue).
In fact, it was WBC that gave me the filling the music was ripped off from somewhere, but that's just me.
Though, I admit that if Rob King did the music for II, III and IV, it will be a risk employing him, since II's music is better than III's which in turn is better than IV's, so his work's greatness is degrading http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I agree that music in H3 was awesome, but the music in H4 was not very good. I remember at the release of H4 being very disapointed in H4 musical themes.

IMO, the two best theme ever are the "Fortress town" & "Eviltheme" of H3. Just go to your mp3 directiry if you have the game installed, pump up the vloume, close your eyes and listen to those.

Someone start a poll about the best theme !

If they did not get Rob King to compose, they should have gotten the guy that composed the music for the game Republic The Revolution.
That game may be flawed and the company bankrupt, but the music totally owns. Its REAL good music to a quite ok game.

Some of the tracks for H4 were actually also great. The music, together with the list of all artefacts and all creatures (all stats included) were the things that made me fall terribly in love with the game before it was even out. It was only after I started playing it that the disappointments came one after the other. Including the music, that I otherwise really loved - the way they made it work was terrible. I don't know if it was a bug only in my version of the game, or it was with everybody, but sometimes the music was getting stuck (sort of speak) into a not more than one minute sequence, that was reapeating endlessly like a scratched old LP (not going till the end of the track like in H3, before it starts again). I really had to enter a town or change to a hero placed on another terrain type just to get rid of that for a while.

But the songs were great. The Adventure themes, the themes from Haven (one of them), Stronghold, Preserve and Necropolis (my favourite) were awesome IMO. The only one I hated was that theme from Haven with that guy singing some opera stuff. I mean, what's that (opera) got to do with Heroes? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif But leaving that track aside, I would enjoy a music wrote by someone who previously composed for Heroes, as I love 90% of the music from all 4 of them.

And yes, I really hope we'll have mp3's. This way, if the game will be as great as H3, and I'll be playing it for the next 5 years (like I did with H3), after 2-3, if I'll feel the need of a change, I can "customize" the music. I do that with WoG now. After 5 years, I can always find a new scenario and (thanks to the WoG team) new creatures and features, but the music remains the same. In order not to get bored of it, sometimes I replace some of the mp3's with some music of my own, that I find appropriate for that type of town, or terrain, or whatever.

(And that's really practical also, 'cause now there is variation, while before, after like half a year of marriage, that music started to drive my wife crazy. Now I've replaced it with some celtic one that she also loves, and she doesn't have that much of a problem anymore when I play the game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif)

You do realize guys that music is a matter of preference? and that it is seemingly impossible to satisfy everybody?

The fact that a composer grasps feeling of the game is also subjective, so it is difficult to analyse such facts.

You can always turn other music on if you want http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My fav. Heroes tracks where 2 & IV & battle tracks of 3 (I think battle tracks of 3 were best out of all HoMM)

For me, logically speaking, I'd rather have an old composer who is used to the game & atmosphere of the game to produce the soundtrack of it, rather than giving it to another one who *might* produce a refreshing OST, however.. it is not garanteed.
Basically, if you liked OSTS before , there is a higher chance you'll like the next one than listening to a completely new composer's work.

And that is my humble opinion.

EDIT: And no , I do not want to have the game soundtrack as MP3.. Highest quality you can get is 320kbps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif I do not mind it being encrypted (where we have to buy the OST by ourselves like H4) rather than listening to inferior quality encoding :\ (one reason H3 OST did sound dull... it is mp3 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif)

I would like them in mp3. Why? First: The HoMM III soundtrack didn't sound "dull" or anything like that in my ears. Second: You should think about all us foreigners, that have to ship the soundtrack all the way from USA. That raises the price a bit, when you live in Europe. And I don't think, that the soundtrack would be released in a boring country such as Denmark.

But I also see the logic in making the soundtrack "encrypted", since they can make money on the soundtrack as well. But I simply really much liked the way 3DO put the soundtrack in mp3-files on the HoMM III Complete disk. That was nice.

The HoMM III soundtrack didn't sound "dull" or anything like that in my ears.
If you had your normal speakers soundcard & speakers (5-30$ price range) yes it would not make a difference, but if you had a better sound system, then definitally you will hear the difference http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gifSaying that *you* do not care about quality, well others do. I know some people who likes & listen to RM encodes with 21kbps encoding....


Second: You should think about all us foreigners, that have to ship the soundtrack all the way from USA.
You should not make assumption about other people's post. I live in europe as well & bought the soundtrack from amazon marketplace, & shipping was only 2$ which is not much really as an international shipping price http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
That is why I also suggested it being like Heroes II where the cd has them as audio track & you can listen to them on your pc, cd player, rip them or do whatever http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif That is the WAY to go ..

The soundtrack was only released in USA, for the record. And if you are a hardcore fan, you would not mind the shipping at all , but as I stated, shipping is not that expensive at all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

MP3 alternative sounds interesting though, and *should* be provided through the official site...

MP3 is really not quality enough really. For a synthesized soundtrack maaaaybe, though for a real recording like the ones in H4... then mp3 is a killer...

UndeadDontDie
05-17-2005, 01:10 PM
MP3 isnt good enough?
Can you really tell the difference between 320kbps and 256kbps?
I know I can't!
And my speakers are crummy old speakers, they are pretty good (expect for the SubWoofer which is a bit weak :\).
Maybe you are listening to the music in ear-numbing blindingly loud volume?
By The Way, with a special extraction tool you can decrypt the files in HIV and extract the files the games uses and thus get MP3's from HIV.

@UndeadDontDie
We are not going to get into an "audiophile" discuession are we?
Whether you or I or whoever can tell the difference or not, that is no the case.
When recording the soundtrack (do not know what equipment they use) but if it was proper recording then it will be recorded at least at 48KH & 24-bit channels..
And then you turn that to mp3? that is stupid.

Same logic applies for Graphics, If you have latest GFX or an old one, and you can not tell the difference, does that mean you use the old technology because of that??

And no, I do not turn volume really loud, but I have good pair of speakers & as well as headphones, & I like the music without mp3 artifacts...

Speaking about nonsense... OF COURSE that's not stupid, if you get some advantages as it's to get good quality audio data, (almost impossible to notice the difference with the original if not completely impossible), that needs ten times less memory space. Why did you think that mp3 is so popular?, people are all stupid or what?.

recca_cool
05-18-2005, 06:57 AM
Ahh... it seems that somebody does not know what they are talking about..

Firstly, Mp3 is *one* of the most poplour compressed formats *on the internet*, specifically speaking, since it saves bandwidth transfaring sample files across the net (in which a lot of sites uses the horrible RM or WMA encodes)... not to mention the extention of mp3 players..
There are tons of there encodes which are not as famous *yet* although a lot of them are argubly better than mp3 itself (such as OGM encoes)..

it's to get good quality audio data
Good quality? How a compressed non-loseless encode can be termed as good quality... unless you are talking about good quality encoding, now that is totally different issue... but as good quality audio, mp3 does NOT provide such, it provides a good quality compression rates

Secondly, space on cds or harddisk is not termed as "memory space"... please use the right terminology if you want to argue somebody else's opinion.. before labeling it as "nonsense"

Thirdly,

Why did you think that mp3 is so popular?, people are all stupid or what?.
I said clearly that the act of of turning high-quality, full-bandwidth audio to a compressed low-quality audio while being able to provide *easily* through various mechanisms (either compression yet loseless & there are tons of encodes for that not sure which one they use in games industry.. or provind data+audio cd as another alternative which is the better solution, maybe not marketing wise since then they can not sell you the soundtrack)

Therefore, I did not say that people are stupid or anything.... Why did you make such accusation, I wonder?

Console games are on DVD right now,and some even on Dual layer.. i.e. +7 GB bandwidth.. the next generation is going to be MUCH MORE...

And you were saying .. memory space??? give me a break , for real..

Such normal graphics does not take much space & all gamers know that, maybe you should do some more research .. understand the concept of space & educate yourself about audio & encodes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If you need help with that, PM me & I will provide some nice links to introduce you to the world of audio http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And?. I just said that using mp3 is not stupid not that it's the best.


Originally posted by recca_cool:

I don't know if it may be called good quality from a professional point of view, but for most of the people who have normal ears that can't notice the difference, and for not professional purposes yes I think it may very well be called good quality.

Not in my language at least, (and I certainly doubt that you can't call memory to that in english... really really doubt it but it's ok). Anyway as you might have noticed I'm not a native english speaker, and as you have perfectly understood what I was trying to say with that word then it's not very polite about you to start discussing about that.

About the rest of your post, first thanks about your care about my education, you're so friendly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif. Second, I doubt H5 will be released on DVD, (though I might be wrong), and one cd more or less counts, (at least I don't want to have many cd's for a game). I haven't made any comment about the future and how space will be so unimportant, but certainly it has still some importance when most of games are sold still in cd format. And perhaps it will be even more important if a new selling method by internet starts to have some impact.

Finally I think you don't needed to prove yourself with such a long and informed post when I just said that mp3 format for a game is not stupid, but anyway thanks for the class theacher, I'll try to be at your level the next time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif.

Yet another person who thinks that the world revolves around him and his whereabouts..

All people switched to mp3-players instead of cd?

I am NOT going to argue with you whether this statement is wrong or not (obviously IT IS)... but....

You did miss a word about mp3-players.. did you ever see the word "Portable"? Look up its meaning in any online dictionary http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

At home, you listen to CD using PC (like a lot of people do nowadays) or in a compact hi-fi system (mid-fi another naming) or even better stand-alone cd player....

Last thing I'd like to say before closing this discuession (at least from my side) is that:
If you think mp3 is good quality & sounds same as cd.. well.. good for you my friend, but you know what? There are people who does notice the difference.

You keep talking about "mobile" and "portable" and when I play the game at home, I play it AT HOME, not while i'm walking or something.. and I 'd like the music in proper quality...

If you like to have mp3 copy of soundtrack of the game, you can always rip the cd, or rip it from the game, or download it from the internet.. does not mean that music of the game should be in mp3...

If i offended you in anyway, I am sorry. I did not mean to.

Thanks for the commment my fellow "student" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif I'll go watch H5 trailer now!

Stop this **** about mp3s and stuff and let my voice be heard:
"Robbie, I hope you've got nothing to do with the music of the trailer, because it's so not cool!"

it's just the ussual music with much noise and no melody at all from intro movies. Even if they've made this music I'm sure they'll do it much better with the actual game.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.
This quote is really funny to me, how you complain he thinks everyone do the same thing he does, and then telling him yourself what he does (ie listening to CD), I know I don't, and I have CD's, its just much simpler to click a mouse button and listen to my favorite MP3's than to start complicating things by changing CD's around, so at home I listen to MP3's as well.
And at everything above 192, its very hard to know the difference.
