0002822: VCMI essential files will not update
Just installed the latest daily of VCMI (26a222a) over a fresh install of Heroes 3 Complete (GOG) and upon opening the launcher I saw that VCMI essential files had an update. So I clicked to update it, then it said to first disable it. So I disabled it and clicked to update before it said that it failed and the mod was already installed. So I tried to uninstall it and it just fails. Seems that it just won't update at all.
No tags attached.

That's right, you shoudl never update VCMI Essential Files and it's in fact impossible and will only break your game.

Setting version of this mod in git( [^]) to same as in repository should prevent showing that it can be updated.
Is there a reason to not fix it that way?

Well, just go for it. This might be only temporary fix, but version set to 0.0 is confusing anyway.

Now we have "vcmi extra" and updateable essential files
