Original Game bug fixing

Critical bugs fixes:
- fixed a crash (when loading the map) that was associated with the generation of rumors in the Tavern
- fixed artifact merchants bug that caused game crash if there was an empty slot between artifacts in the backpack
- fixed random hero with random creatures bug
- fixed game crash when switching between towns with split-army button pressed.
- If you had more than 5000 maps in the game folder, it caused game crash when choosing a map.
- fixed game crash during the Replay Turn, when on the previous day a pink player did not capture any towns during 7 days and got vanquished. 
- fixed game crash when viewing random maps with no/fewer maps in Maps folder
- HoMM3 HD uses newer versions of libraries Mss32.dll and Mp3dec.asi which fixes game-crash errors at some modern PCs.

Non-critical bugs fixes:
- fixed handling of negative indent letters which caused part of the text to not display correctly.
- выделение текста фигурными скобками { } сбивалось переносом строки.
- fixed the RMG bug that was choosing one of the player's starting heroes for the Prison

HD+ fixes a number of gameplay bugs.
- Fixed a bug that allowed selling artifacts to Artifact Merchants at a higher price.
- Fixed all "Not Me" bugs that allowed spying on the enemy player (in multiplayer) during its turn.
- Fixed the bug that allowed leaving a hero with no army.
- Fixed a bug with Clone spell.
- Fixed a bug with unending enemy AI turn.
- Fixed a bug with the refugee camp when only pikemen appeared for hire after guards are killed.
- Fixed a Quick Combat bug that, among other things, allowed capturing Dragon Fly Hive only with 1 Hydra with no casualties; or killing shooting unit packs with slow flying units with too few casualties.
- Fights between AIs are now to a player fight vs AI; thus, fixing some bugs, such as: artifacts obtained by the loosing hero after the fight, or a bug with town capture.
- Fixed a critical bug with neutral creatures when Angelic Alliance is equipped.
- Fixed a bug with a herro attacked in an ally’s town

HoMM3 HD automatically detects and fixes map bugs that occur during the game process.

- a gray city with double hero;
- an invisible hero’s ghost after combat defeat;
- a hero disappears from heroes list;
- an unknown hero appears in heroes list;
- a hero becomes available to play by other players;
- a hero, hired by other player, becomes available for hire in tavern;
- a bug with a secondary skill that has incorrect image/name and causes game crash when trying to read its info;
- after player’s defeat with no towns, its heroes remain on the map;
- hero’s army suddenly decreases to the one at the start of the week.

Also, a good number of tiny graphical improvements has been made.
