More music?

I wonder, to add more music to a faction, do just need to name them "Battle-Academy2.ogg", or do I need to run an additional script placed in a .h5u?

I know how to replace them, it's just that one or two songs gets old after a while.

about music, only for combats we can add more of one song.
then the game randomly chooses one of them during the battle begins.

However, I don't suggest to crush original .ogg of the game
It's better to edit xdb file that links .ogg

Personaly, I created a new folder in the game root I named FormerSongs and
I put into it a lot of song that comes from H2, H3 and H4. Converted to .ogg, of course.

Then I edited the corresponding xdb song file to modify the ogg files inside.

go to /Sounds/_(Music) from data.pak

this tree folders is similar to the Root Game's Music folder.
There, you'll see all xdb files being able to be edited.

You'll understand It's just possible to have just one song for each particular terrain or town, etc.

But be care to the file named TableRaceMusic.xdb because it's into this file it's possible
to add songs of battle you want.

In this file, only <combatMusics> tag accepts more of one entry. you can adjust combat music dependly of the
race, but if you repeat same files for all races, then you break the link between races and their combat music.

A trick to have more of one song for terrain or town is just to create a new .ogg file by adding more of one song into.
ex: song1 & song2 & song3 in the same ogg file. To make that, I used GoldWave with a .ogg plug-in.

it's not necessary for the music file to be a .ogg, you can put mp3 and other media formats as well.

I did a Mod(Program) that adds/changes music, without touching the ogg files. like this:


and you can download it from here:

and about how to use it => check the readme file
