  • [Bug] Spectator Mode - Sound and looking at EQ

    These are both spectator specific bugs, or I'm lucky enough, not to have noticed them in normal play.

    1. Inspecting EQ can crash game

    When looking at equipment (using the little magnifying glass), the game has the tendency to completely freeze.
    This is not a 100% case thing, but it has happened due to an Ursa (without any items equipped) having a magnifying glass.
    Also, if the game crashes, it tends to get stuck on "Connecting to DotA2 servers" or whatever the message was!

    Repro Steps:
    Clicked magnifying glasses in multiple games, on every hero possible

    More than often, the game will not crash, and show the items.
    Some heroes that have no specific gear, but items like couriers, or a 'false' magnifying glass, seem to cause this more often.
    However, I've looked at a Kunkka with the Tricorne hat, and it has crashed my DotA2 as well.

    Repro Steps:
    Went back to spectate the same game, looking at Ursa's EQ did not crash DotA2.

    2. Sounds stuck

    And other spells, too. Such as Krob's Ult summoning sound, Wisp's balls, and other sound effects looping in specific areas.

    Repro Steps:
    Join a game. Go wild scanning the map.

    Apparently sounds are stuck prior to joining sometimes, as I started spectating a few games that were on-going,
    and I could hear certain skills' sounds around certain areas. The areas seem random.
