  • Bug/Feature request for panorama ability API

    Create lina hero, her ultimate in panorama will be Entities.GetAbility(heroId, 3), but Game.GetKeybindForAbility(3) will give a keybind for a settings slot number four, not ability slot.
    If this is rational, then we should have a way to get a Keybind from ability entity. Also, please add some way to get quickcast keybind.

    Not sure I understand, could you elaborate a bit?


    • #3
      What I'm saying is ability index and keybind index do not correlate, so there is no fail-proof way to tell the keybind of specific ability.

        Ahhh, thanks for the clarification!

        I went through the API and I can't seem to find a way to get the actual slot the ability has taken.

        Game.GetKeybindForAbility( integer iSlot ) -> iSlot is related to actual ability slots ( pic, so 5 would return an ultimate )
        GetAbility.Entities.GetAbility( integer nEntityIndex, integer nSlotIndex ) -> nSlotIndex is related to the ability number on the hero ( so for lina, 3 would return the ultimate )

        Given that heroes can have hidden abilities etc, as DoctorGester requested it would be neat to have an API call that would return the keybind of an ability entity along with the one we have. In addition, perhaps a rename of of Game.GetKeybindForAbility() is warranted? Seeing as usage of slots is not consistent and can easily be mistaken.
