Heroes of Might and Magic V new hardware cursors

This is not a mod, these are new hardware cursors not only for Might & Magic Heroes 5.5, but also for all other similar games that uses cursors from HoMM5hwcursors folder.


To install new hardware cursors, first you need to copy hwcursors folder from HoMM5 folder to some other place in case you do not like new cursors and you want to return the old ones.
After you copied your old hwcursors folder from HoMM5 folder to some other place, you can extract hwcursors folder from new hwcursors.zip to HoMM5 folder and overwrite old hardware cursors.

In new hwcursors.zip there is new cursors.jpg preview picture of what you can expect of new hardware cursors.


To download new hwcursors.zip click this link:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/tlstoc872m0bc4p/new_hwcursors.zip


Files in new hwcursors.zip:
hwcursors folder
new hwcursors.pdf
new cursors.jpg

There are 135 files in hwcursors folder that is in hwcursors.zip. There are some old files too, the idea is that hwcursors folder from this zip file overwrites everything in HoMM5hwcursors folder on hard disc.
If the user wants old cursors back, the reverse is needed, complete overwrite of new hwcursors folder with the old one.

New hardware cursors are mostly modifications of dds cursor files from Might & Magic: Heroes VI so I suppose it is fine to use them on Heroes of Might and Magic V.

Preview of main changes:
Red numbers along cursors are not part of the new cursors, they appear only if control key is pressed, and the control key needed to be pressed in order to capture hardware cursors on image.

the new cursors are more detailed and better quality thats a big +.

On the other hand I found the unicorn quite charming and rather keep that .

Thanks for your work!

Not sure how I missed this before. Great job Skeggy . I wonder if it is possible to put a different one for each faction?

Could you be more precise, because there already are different ones for each action.
