This mod is essentially a revamped Don't Deselect, with many extra features and improved compatibility.
Requires Mod Options Framework
If you disable this mod, and are having problems with double-select-centering, go into the console (ctrl+f8) and enter "cg_cmdrDoubleSelectTime 500" without the quotes.
Requires HoN Mod Manager and Mod Options Framework
Features:Code:Older versions: v1.70: locktarget.honmod v1.60: locktarget.honmod v1.51: locktarget.honmod v1.50: locktarget.honmod v1.40: locktarget.honmod v1.30: locktarget.honmod v1.22: locktarget.honmod v1.1: locktarget.honmod
When your currently selected target enters the fog or becomes invisible, it won't be deselected. This allows you to continue to view that target's items/health/mana.
(Note, this will NOT update the target's information. It simply shows the information from the last time the target was visible.)
When the target is visible and active (and the target's information is being updated), the UI looks like this:
When the target is not visible, it is inactive (and the target's information is NOT being updated), the UI looks like this:
Press ESC, or whatever key you rebound it to, to clear the target, and display the normal command buttons.
If your selected target enters the fog, and then later re-emerges, this mod will automatically reselect him.
The same applies to invisibility. If your target goes invisible, this mod will reselect him as soon as he becomes visible.
Attack Target Hotkey
This mod adds a rebindable-hotkey to the game options. This hotkey is called "Attack Target"
When you press this hotkey, your hero will automatically try to attack the target you have selected.
Also, if you are currently choosing the target of an ability (ie. you are using the cross-hair cursor), and you press this hotkey, your hero will automatically use that ability on your selected target.
Announce Target Hotkey
This will display the name of the current target in Team Chat
ChangelogCode:-The attack/move icons are greyed out. This is to prevent a bug that would occur if you click them. To move/attack, use a hotkey. -Double-select-centering is disabled (other than for your hero) when your target is inactive.

I can see much use for this ^^. Thanks
Perfect, now, can we get a MiniUI compatible version? It works with MiniUI, it's just missing the indicator for active or inactive.
edit: disregard this

Nice work Asia!

it is not really a bug,
just that the frames hasnt took up any icon to display since it is set to visible and you just opened the game
to fix that just select a building or an allied creep/hero
MiniUI support will make me happy.
^it is supported(tested it myself), well sorta..... the active/inactive indicator is the only part that is missing
This makes juking way harder. I don't like mods like this should be allowed.
-IceFrog"The game will be way better than the 2 major competitors combined, we have upgraded the gameplay and systems and everything to inhuman levels. Also, I don't want to comment some of the features of our competitors but I got to say that at least our servers will be up all the time. We don't want to disappoint our customers. If you liked DotA you will love Dota 2."

Yea if you ask me, the mod will re-select the hero & issue an attack command for you with 1 button press?
I'm pretty sure this is bordering on Bot systems
For some reason, it wrecks my startup.cfg to not recognize focusing my hero after double tapping F1 or after doubletapping the ctrl group i assigned to.
I had to make a fresh one to fix it
YOU CAUSE ME GRIEF MAN! you used to be cool

S2 just surrendered to LoL
A couple of odd behavior bits:
1) If you select a new unit to control (e.g. via F1, as KaliKot noticed), SelectedVisible0 gets set to "false", so you immediately reselect the locked target, making double-tapping to center the camera impossible. I guess one way to fix this might be to do something like intercepting orders to change the active unit, and just issuing a center camera command if that unit is already active.
2) ToolTargetingEntity is only true when targeting skills. If you just issue an OrderAttack command, ToolTargetingEntity remains false. I suspect this means that if the locked target goes from invisible to visible while you have OrderAttack up, you'll immediately issue an attack command on the locked target, which might be undesirable. I would suggest intercepting OrderAttack and using a custom trigger for determining whether you're targeting (unless there's a cleverer way to do this). I guess this might hold for OrderMove and stuff too, but does anybody actually ever use those?
the selection sound gets played every time which gets kind of annoyingso you immediately reselect the locked target
