Cursor Replacements

In HoMM5, the movement pointer is represented by a Sylvan creature and the garrison-entrance pointer by a troop clearly belonging to Haven. The gauntlet pointer looks like it was taken off a Haven Knight and I see it as out of place for most factions.

This was a serious flaw to me, so I replaced the cursors with what I consider more generally well-suited ones. I figured some of you must feel similarly, so I'm sharing it here.

Some redundant comments:

As shown in the preview, the package also eradicates the atrocious computer-mouse icon. Horses or mules are arguably used for transportation by all factions' forces, even if the hero uses a different mount. A leather glove is suitable apparel for all classes and factions, save perhaps heroes with oversized hands. I'm aware there is already a package that replaces the unicorn with a horse, but I found that one aesthetically inadequate.

Thanks for this mod. I really liked the look of your cursors. That's just to see them in the game failed. Looked only in Total Commander. For some reason, they are not replaced in the game. Old cursors are displayed. I kind of correctly placed the file Cursor_Replacements_1.0.pak. Copied it to the data folder. Also tried to repack files from the pak archive again. I changed the extensions to h5m and h5u, and place them in the appropriate folders. Did archive only with dds files with correct folder structure. I replaced the xdb files from the mod with those that are in the data folder, and changed the new dds file names in them. But nothing helps.

Please someone help me figure out why this mod doesn't work. I do not like cursors with a unicorn, I really want to install with a horse.  I have a TotE 3.1 version of the game.

Partly solved the problem. It turns out I had a checkbox in Use HW cursor in the settings in the Video & Audio Options. If you remove it, the cursors from the mod will work. But then the size of the cursors will be about 3 times larger. Please tell me how to make them as small as cur cursors from the folder hwcursors, which are used when configuring Use HW cursor?
