    DotA item/hero replacement icons

    ***UPDATE: Mod has been updated. Icons have all been mirrored to show correctly. Have changed install method so that no files are replaced within textures.s2z (icons will STILL need to be copied into textures.s2z though) and now the ability to install hero + item replacement or just item replacment icons. Have also added new hero icons for new heroes.

    You will need to re-download the texture pack again (00000000.rar) from here: http://www.speedyshare.com/391338878.html



    OK, here it is guys.

    Replacement icons that will change the items/hero icons to DotA ones.





    Instructions:

    You first might want to back-up your textures.s2z before you try this.

    1. download the icon pack from here: http://www.speedyshare.com/391338878.html

    2. Extract the rar file. You should now have a folder called 00000000.


    3. Open textures.s2z (located in: C:\Program Files\Heroes of Newerth\game) in winrar, 7zip or whatever. I'm using winrar in this example.

    4. Copy the 00000000 folder into the textures.s2z file. This will add the dota icons.



    5. Now either download the

    Heroes and Items mod pack: http://www.speedyshare.com/383938157.html

    Or

    Items only mod pack: http://www.speedyshare.com/719539123.html

    And copy the file into the game folder (C:\Program Files\Heroes of Newerth\game)



    ***To uninstall simply delete the resource file (resources22.s2z) from your game directory (C:\Program Files\Heroes of Newerth\game)***





    Enjoy.

    I love you. O_O

    If you could do the skills for the old heroes, I'd make love to you.

    Also, just a suggestion, I'd make two separate files for DOTA items and then DOTA hero icons, along with one including both together. Just because i might prefer the new icons since a lot of the dota ports got changed anyways.

    Good work nonetheless though. <3

    Keep in mind this requires you to replace the actual game files. If something goes wrong you may have to reinstall to fix it

    I had a try with this but something was bugging me out, then I realized that all the icons were flipped horizontally, which to me feels extremely awkward. o_o

    Was it your choice not to have them in the right way? o_o

    I'd like to use this mod but this makes me even more confused than HoN's icons. :|

    Correct me if I'm wrong.. but I think the mistake you made was rotate all your imported icons by 180 degrees instead of flipping them vertically. It'd be really nice to have this mod but with the icons in the correct orientation .

    Great! With this, none will be confused in buying the items.. But can I ask you a favor?

    I wanted to replace only the items.. I dont feel like changing the heroes' icons.. Can you made a custom for me?

  10. #10
    Yeah, I'd also love an item-only version.

    In the 00000000 folder, there is an items and a heroes folder. Simply delete the heroes folder from his package before you copy into your textures.s2z and it will be item only.

    power threads color does not change, when you switch between int/str/agi, it's always green

    Jones, would you be willing to update this with this method:

    http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...ad.php?t=14403

    This would make it so users don't have to replace crucial game files and makes it easier to uninstall.

    Hey guys, just letting you know that ive updated the mod.

    you can now install the mod without deleting any of the original files. Although i would back up the textures.s2z file just in case.

    All icons have been mirror imaged and new icons have been added for new heroes.

    Also you can now choose to install items only or heroes and items icons.

    Let me know if ive screwed anything up.

    Oh and let me know if you guys want the ability icons changed... i might do that when i have some spare time.

    Cheers.


    P.S. Does anyone know how to edit the player models in this game? would love to replace them with War3 ones.
