I have read half-way through the manual, and so far found only one minor grammatical error (an irregular verb) and one spelling error.  If you don't mind, I will email you directly about such changes rather than taking up space here.

To do a good job I think I must install the game and try out the features to be sure I understand them.  This will take weeks if not months (mainly spent in learning the game due to its rich complexity).  However, in the end I doubt if much will need to be changed, from what I have seen so far.

Congratulations on an effort of professional, commercial quality!  (Better than Heroes IV, I think.)

Besides the few grammar misleads I could forget, I think Bers (and me) were quite unhappy with some dialogs which lost their humor. The original was russian slang and I could not catch it properly. Including references to russian mythology which did not speak much to me. Those are in particular the dialogs issued from visiting the places of good fortune. He will certainly point them to you, I guess a much better translation could be made for those. Other that, the mod is incredibly stable (I did not get a single crash in 1 month of test) despite the constant quantity of  DL which pop here and there. A joy to test and play.

If I understand you properly, you want to translate the mod from english to another language? You are free to do it as well as change mod or use its parts in other projects (which are not for sale).

Jim, thanks for revision. It's rather good if manual is readable even for you.

Darn!  I have slightly screwed up the installation somehow.  I started with a fresh copy (Heroes 3 Phoenix) of a Heroes/WoG 3.58f folder (never modified except with my WoG script fixes), then I installed the Phoenix Mod 3.61.exe there, then I extracted the PhoenixMod_3.61_Fix.rar into that folder, then I installed the Phoenix Mod 3.61 Englification v1.0 beta.exe.  When I start the program, the Menu is still in Russia, and when I start a new game, the dialogs are in Russian.  The text files in Data are in English and script99.ert in Data/s is in English, but they (or some of them) aren't being used.  (Sounds impossible, I know.)  I used the desktop shortcut, which points to phoenix.exe in my new Heroes 3 Phoenix folder.

Maybe I had to install over Era instead of WoG 3.58f?  Or over plain Heroes 3?

I put the new folder under Public Documents in Windows 7, so that all the files could be read and written by all users.  This is my standard practice now for Heroes folders.  I have several other working mods there.

Edit - actually, I should say the Main Menu items are in Cyrillic and the dialogs are not in standard ANSI encoding.  I don't know for a fact that the underlying data is in Russian, just that it looks the same as stuff I have seen in Russian maps before translation.

I installed it in my WoG folder, but not everything seems to work properly. Where is the manual?

The starting game icons are still russian (work on new english skin is on the way). The manual is in the help folder. The english text should work unless Bers screwed the package, he has still much to learn

Oh, sorry guys.
Delete "Rus" folder (source of russian texts) and unpack the following archive to Data: http://wikisend.com/download/428080/fonts.rar (this will give more beatiful fonts)

I'll update the package in future.

That was easy!  Previously I had moved the Rus folder under Backup, with no effect, but deleting it gives me English dialogs.  Now I have a whole new world to explore.  This will keep me busy for some time.

Link in the first post is updated to version 2.0. Now the installer automatically deletes "Rus" folder and unpacks fonts. Gennady and Bes are working on English skin.

I think I should too contribute with some little patch Please don't eat me for that

DOWNLOAD - just unpack to game directory.

CHANGES:
At first I think that it would be better when exe will have new icon, not just shortcut to it with new icon. Like that:


Then I think it's better when scroll buttons between secondary skills are more away from themselves, like that:


And, finally, when you don't get secondary skills on level-up dialogoue,
it's enought something just like that:

Arrows look better like that, but scrolling requires larger mouse movement also. IMO the message about skills will become redundant and tedious after 10 minutes of playing.

Al_Mualim, thanks. What program did you use to replace icon?
ResHacker and Restorator break the format. What concerns scrolling, too unflixible it is now.

And could you reupload the archive to wikisend.com ?

Hey guys!

The mod is Awesome. Simply rocks!
I have tried many mods, towns, patches and other things, but this one is.the.absolute.

I play with WoG XXL (script-update), thousands of hours, mostly hot-seat cooperative against team AI.

I didn't post to this forum, yet (every question of mine have been asked by somebody else ). BTW, grats to everyone, this site is the greatest of all in the Heroes communities.

Now I have to ask, cause it's a hot topic and I've a small observation.

In this mod, I can't generate XXL map without water (only islands). Do you have any trigger or patch to solve this, please?

Other thing, I can't load the saved games, lol. Does the Phoenix mod works together with the script update?

Thank you for this mod, have a nice day,
Beaust
