Default Dota 2 - Changing Suggested Items Program


It allows you to choose what you want as your recommended items

All items and hero that are in the game work in this program.

If you see any mistakes let me know

You will need java to be able to run this program

Download Links:
https://rapidshare.com/files/4123090152/DotaItemMod.jar
http://www.mediafire.com/?tkb84zk3jrtpeg0
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2CFRAN5Y


Download Link for people having trouble with original:
http://www.mediafire.com/?3y4i782ulc68961

Video Instructions:
Dota 2 change suggested Items - YouTube

I will be updating this program as new heroes/items are being released.

====================Updates======================= ==
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

====================Instructions================== =======
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.

Enjoy!

Inb4 people changing suggested items to Boots+Tangoes for all heroes so that madness will be able to begin again

Anyway, good job. Shop mods and such instruments will always be appreciated, I guess

Added a feature where you can view your currently suggested items when you click on a area to edit.

If you are using my program, re-download for the latest update, or if you have not used it yet check it out!

So how easy will it be to get updates for this?

Like I noticed lifestealer wasn't there yet, and since there's still ~1/2 of the heroes not out, will you provide updates or is it pretty easy to edit a .jar file yourself?

I just edit my files and recompress it into a jar files and re upload to the file sharing sites. Then, I bump this thread by mentioning there is an update.

I plan to add heroes as they update. As long as valve does not release like 30 heroes at one time, to add only one or two heroes will really only take about 5 minutes.

As for the lifesteal item, are you sure its called lifesteal, I checked the dota 2 game and the game cannot find that item. However, there is an item called morbid mask that is labeled as item_lifesteal. I could be wrong though

Check in your C drive if you have a file called dotaItem.txt and look in it. It should be:

D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta

If you don't have a C drive that is probably your problem. If so, let me know and I can adjust it to put it in your D drive just give me your email or something so i can send you the adjusted program.

I'm currently working on applying more options than C drive but I can quickly adjust one for you, it will only take a sec. If that is the problem.

Nice program, just one suggestion here.
For starting item, we only have 606 gold to spend.
So perhaps, you could display total item gold worth under each category?

I'll probably implement that after my school year ends which is pretty much at the end of next week. I'll need to get a list of all the item price which will take a while.

Oh not a lifesteal item.

I meant the new hero lifestealer who was added 2 days ago. I didn't see him on the list of heroes to edit unless I missed him.

O, didn't know he was added as it doesn't show on the update news. I'll be sure to add him by the end of today or tomorrow.

SUGGESTION: How about letting us name the file? In case you're a little late on the update, so for example then we don't need to wait for the hero to be put in we can just put in the items and name the file whatever matches the new hero.

Another good thing you could add is Sorting Heroes by Str/Agi/Int and Items by shop, I know there's the search but Sorting is also good if you are setting all Agi heroes with the same starting build..
Hope you understood, sorry for my bad english :P

Fixed skeleton king not displaying items in game
--For some reason the skeleton king's text file is written slightly different than the other heroes which caused my program to write multiple content that confused the game.

That is defiantly something I can include in the program, but I do plan on updating the content of my program with in the same day valve releases new heroes. Also, keep in mind you can create a build for the new hero on an old hero and simple rename the file to the new hero. If I am late with my updates.

I don't plan on releasing the code yet as I really do not want multiple people releasing my program everytime one hero has been added to the game. Also, I did not create any comments on my code at all, so reading my code and what each method does might be a pain in the ass for other people.

Nice program, does the job. One thing would make it a bit faster to set the items. Whenever you select an item for the box it should move to the next box for then next item. Anyways it works great, but if you want to perfect it, this would be useful.

You can just add a license that says you can't redistribute, easy.

Comments aren't a problem, your code is fairly straight forward anyway.

Hey, thanx for updating your software, it's really great, but you could improve it a little, for example you could add the description of the selected item on the right of the character picture and moving the picture a little on the left. And you could change too the resolution of the pictures on the left because the pictures are a little disfigured because of the bad ratio. Sorry for my poor english ...

Like this picture
