Also, did you make any balance changes or do you plan to?

As I mentioned before, currently we are working on a remake of original HoMM2. This game would have no differences in gameplay (besides more friendly interface, being bug-free and not so predictable AI), so people can play it, as many years before, without being confused by rebalancing and changing of in-game content.
For the future... You very likely see certain improvements in our separate add-on...

Good.
Is there a way to save my personal settings (speeds, for instance)?

Well, actually changing .cfg file is not appreciated, due to some issues could happen, if set inappropriate values.
Try using notepad++.

Also, is there a way to play the operas? (which files and where should I place them?)

Music folder from the original game should be placed in "files" folder. And currently we are not implemented the support of switching music in game, so you need to edit ".cfg" file using Notepad++ :

We're pleased to announce a new release of fheroes2 - 0.8.1 version. We decided to make an intermediate version as we made a huge rework on graphics: we developed a new rendering engine which fixes all major graphical issues such as incorrect Air Elemental or Resurrection Spell drawings, shadows and fonts.

0.8 version (before):

0.8.1 version (now):

0.8 version (before):

0.8.1 version (now):


We also fixed more than 50 bugs for this release.  

We hope that you'd enjoy it!

Nice.
Do it run on demo Heroes II?!

Will be god have modding console to easy change.
Especially unit ability switching.
And repair some mistakes eg horde growth is always 8 for peasant and for eg. centaurs to. Will be good to ballance for each unit.
Second question I dont like is fortification system. Will be good give some unit growth for towers. Eg 10 % each tower and 5% moat .
It gives 25%.
So not only graphical development. Ballance too.
Three cities are to weak Sorceress Barbarian and of course Knight. Rest three are very strong. Will be good reballancing it.

Hi, Baronus.
Quote:

Yes. In a fheroes2 download package you can find help in downloading free demo. Also, you can use your official GOG version and install fheroes2 over it.
Currently we are working on clear version without mods.
New preferences shouldn't be added until full and flawless version will be created.

Once the 1.0 version will be released, our work will be continued over a separate add-on with lots of new features and enhancements.
You can visit our discussion discord channel Discord
Also new ideas can be offered at our main page:
Official Free Heroes2
The main goal of add-on is not to change current game, but to add new content to make a minor balance improvements.

Greeting, players and fans of Heroes of Might and Magic II!

We're happy to announce a fresh release of fheroes2 - 0.8.2 version. This is an intermediate release towards 0.9 version which contains some not very noticeable but very important changes: we finally released a brand new AI, polished many-many UI issues, change the structure of maps, added deeper support of campaign and made user friendly interface for external music which is present in full version of the game.  

Now movement of heroes of the map is delightfully smooth as in the original game. Also take a look of fixed UI elements in the battle (take a look at extra surrounding shadows of monsters and truncated shadow of Phoenix in 0.8.1 version).
0.8.1:

0.8.2


We also fixed more than 100 bugs for this release.

We hope that you'd like our project even more!

Hm, didn't see this one. H2 is my all-time favourite. I hope success on this endeavour and rewarding accomplishment. =D

Tweaking some things to have them more useful would be as far as I would like for any plans beyond the total remake and fully functional original game, which is a respectful and commendable gesture. =)

I would not bear seeing balance starting to take hold of and trimming it into some unrecognizable would-be-H3 mishmash though. ^_^
