Darker Interface Colors

I never liked the way Heroes 3 interface looks due to player colors not fitting in the interface. Extract this little archive into your Data directory and the interface will look much better.

New Battle Grids

Choose the one you like and put it into the Data directory. I recommend the third one.

Synchronized Creatures Sounds

Some creatures produce sound in the wrong moment. Like, when Air Elementals are hit first comes animation and then they produce the sound. This fixes them. Extract into the game folder.
