Facial expressions broken?

    Many heroes do not blink. It makes them look super dull.

      Did you accidentally or intentionally click on something/someone else? Or have they stopped blinking altogether now? :-/

        What Starry Might means is that most heroes' portraits look fine when you load in them, but they lose their facial expressions, including blinking abilities, once you click on another unit and switch back to your hero. Seems to be a problem with reloading heroes' portraits correctly.

          Yes, just noticed it in detail aswell. I also made a post where background particles in portraits e.g. the flames behind Lina and QoP do not show up unless you look at the center of the map. On top of that hero particles i.e. the flow of lava on Shadow Fiend disappear once you die and respawn.

            Queen of Pain has the portrait background problem, too? (I know Luna also has this issue.)

            As for hero particles disappearing, I haven't noticed that. I'll have to pay more attention next time.

            Anyway, I just wanted to say a couple of things:

            (1) I noticed recently and confirmed today that if you activate the Illusion Rune, and then click on one of your Illusions, it does NOT trigger the Dead Stare bug. Don't know first-hand if this is true for other illusions (e.g. Manta Style).

            (2) When I was killed by Vengeful Spirit (bot), her mouth in the "Killed By" portrait was gaping open after she finished talking. O_o

            P.S. - I wonder if they're waiting until they switch to the Source 2 engine next year to fix this. I know the Workshop Alpha Tools were recently updated. Can anyone confirm whether or not the facial expressions are still intact in that version of the game?

              Interesting point about Illusions not breaking some facial animations. I guess the engine can load a blue replacement texture without reloading the whole portrait model, kinda like with that (fixed?) Effigy glitch where someone's Killed By portrait would turn to stone/ice upon selecting an effigy.

              On my end it doesn't look like the Dota version was updated, only the editors.

                (BTW, I can personally confirm this also applies to personal Manta Style Illusions.)

                Really? I swore I saw something about facials in some patch notes about it I saw awhile back...was I mistaken?

                  Christmas Eve, problem still exists.

                  Maybe the devs will feel charitable and finally fix the issue for Christmas?

                    Well, everything about the Dota version I looked up looked old - old shop ads, old hero balances, some glitches that have been fixed since then, etc, so it doesn't seem to be synched to fit the latest version. Maybe it needs to be updated separately? Idk, I only installed the Tools to take a quick look.

                      Not sure if this is new, but in a bot match today the otherwise expressionless CM went back and forth between cringing and looking surprised, with an open mouth at all times.



                      Don't know how to repro it, but when it happened, it was during a Killed By screen.

                            Still broken for what 5 months? The problem happens when you select other unit/hero, until then your portrait works fine but once you select anything else it breaks.

                              I doubt they'll fix it before Source 2, they've already delayed more high-profile Dota2 updates because of it (Frostivus, proper particle support). Occasionally, facial expressions have already been bugging out before this, so maybe they'll take the opportunity to revise it from scratch.

                              Looks like Source 2 features won't be in place for New Bloom (they could have allowed particles in submissions if that was the case), but they'll probably want it for TI5, so I'd look out for a fix between those two dates.

                                As I've said in an earlier post, I've had a case where I was killed by Vengeful Spirit, and her mouth gaped open after she talked in the Killed By portrait. (I should have took a picture of it, BTW, but I didn't.)

                                Yeah, I agree.
