View Full Version : Shop Shield Icon Disappears
05-24-2010, 06:54 AM
Description: When ingame, switching between hotkeys can cause the shop shield icon to disappear (the icon next to your stash you click on to open the shop)
- Buy a courrier
- Assign your hero to 1, your courrier to 2 (for example)
- With your hero selected and away from a shop of any kind, press 2-1-2.
- Notice how the shop icon starts to appear, but by the time your courrier is selected the second time the shop icon has finished coming in and then vanishes, meaning you cannot click on the shield icon to open the shop.
Can be marginally irritating if your screen is not centered around the courrier, as I'm far too lazy to press b to open the shop window.

Couldn't replicate. The shop icon always came back for me when i switched to my courier at the base fountain.
Are you using any mods? If so please remove them and try reproducing this yourself.

It's not Just switching to the courrier.
It's switching to the courrier, then back to the hero (who is not at a shop of any kind), then back to the courrier before the shield arriving animation finishes which causes it to disappear for me.

Sorry for the double post.
Made a video for you here (http://www.xfire.com/video/2bfbfa/)
I made sure all my mods were uninstalled.
I got kraken and moved him out of range of the shop. I bound him to hotkey 1.
I got a courrier in the well and bound him to hotkey 2.
You can see at the start that there's an icon I can click on to open the shop when the courrier is selected. I then select Kraken to show that the shop icon has gone.
I then pressed 2-1-2 and the courrier was selected. You can see the shop icon start to come in and then disappear. I then cannot click there to open the shop (although, I just realised, I could still click on the gold to do it. That was new for me). Selecting Kraken and then the courrier again allowed me to use the icon once more to open the shop.
Hope this explains it enough.

Yeah I got it to happen if I spammed fast between the two. It would return if i changed between them slowly though, but you shouldn't have to do that of course.
Also I noticed the shop icon doesn't appear at the very start of the game when your hero is in the fountain, it waits until it moves away and returns(or you move away and switch to a courier at fountain). Not sure if that's intended or not.
