I will be updating this program as new heroes/items are being released.
12/3/2011 -- Added feature to view what items are currently listed in the suggested items on the hero. Added the new hero Lifestealer
12/6/2011 - Fixed skeleton king not properly saving item build
12/9/2011 - Added new hero Death Prophet
If this is your first time launching the program - you must set the directory to to the dota folder
(The location is stored in the C drive, if you don't have a volume called C - this program will probably not work, if you really want it, email me and I'll adjust it for you)
Once you set the directory you never have to do this again, unless you reinstall steam to a different location, or delete the dotaItem.txt file in your C drive
After setting the directory, choose a hero and start setting the items.
-Right clicking on the mouse will remove the icon you set on that field
-You do not have to fill all the positions
-you don't have to search for the full name
-an empty search field will bring all the items/characters back on the interface -press enter or hit the search button on the empty field
After you have finished customizing your hero, hit Run----Edit Hero -if this is your first time editing that hero, the program will create a backup of that hero before changing.
once, you get prompted "finished creating item customization)" you are good to go, and your hero has the newly created recommended list.
If you want to go back to the original you can either, separately restore each hero with the Run---Restore File, or you can select Run---Restore All Files and restore every file that was edited by the program back to the original content.
If for some reason my program is not creating backups or wont restore the original file. You can go to your steam client ----Right click Dota 2 ----properties ----Local Files ---- Verify Integrity of Game Cache --This option will restore everything to the way it was.
if this does not work, then go to your dota/itembuild folder and delete the heroes that are not restoring back to normal and rerun the instructions above, and it will restore everything back to normal.
But I have been using my program, as well as a couple other people for testing, and they have not reported any problems.
You do not have to have my program running when playing dota 2, or the dota 2 game doesn't have to be on to use my program.
