Fix for the Armorer bug ?

Hello
I am just getting back into playing some HOMM3 using the GOG version and the HD mod and was dismayed to read of the Armorer bug; which as far as I can tell is not fixed by the HD mod.

Is there a fix for that bug which works with the Gog Complete version and the HD mod?

Do experienced players avoid Armorer on account of the bug or is it considered a minor issue?

Thanks

Have you heard about Hota? (Horn of the Abyss) The bug you mentioned is fixed in that expansion.

If I'm not fully mistaken, the latest GOG version of Heroes 3 has already solved those bugs.

If not, here is a tip:

Fix for Siege + Armorer bug:

FileOffset: 1E224 (Change 7d to 4d, fdivr to fmul)
FileOffset: 1E360 (Change 7d to 4d, fdivr to fmul)
FileOffset: 65D64 (Change 7d to 4d, fdivr to fmul)

Use a hex editor

(you can disable all other options and stay only with arror tower bug fixed).

Another couple of features I would like have to do with scrolling on the campaign map
I would like the Arrow keys function to default to scrolling rather than moving the character
Having to use Ctrl + Arrow is awkward
And I would like to be able to turn off screen edge scrolling - or at least drastically reduce its sensitivity
Are these already in a mod?
Are they even possible?

I also liked the map scrolling in Heroes 2, but it's not something that I go around thinking about, but it would be nice to scroll the map with the arrow keys.

Chances are that if you're not a regular "keyboard player" and you've come down to using the keys, maybe it's about time to shut down the game anyway heh.

At least when I play Heroes 2 and I press the arrow keys to scroll the map, I'm relaxed and ready to quit.

A tip: The game will never be finished, just enjoy it as it is

One is not tired nor ready to quit.
I play mainly with the mouse; I never use the arrow keys to move my heroes and I doubt many do; but I may be mistaken.
Being able to scroll using one key rather than two would be preferable - for me.

Also, although no game will ever be 'finished' or perfect in this world, nonetheless improvements can always be made; and in the case of this game improvements are still being made today; so putting forward my suggestion/request/query is made in that light and in good faith.

Thanks
