  • Player perspective disabled, some particular symptoms

    When I watch a live captains mode match 3 or 4 of the radiant side team will be disabled to me for player perspective view. I click the mini portrait at top of screen and nothing happens. It seems to only affect the radiant side, the middle three and sometimes the first on left. I don't know how to reproduce it but it's happened several times very recently (I didnt keep track exactly, 3 or 4 or so times that I've noticed). I thought first it was some kind of privacy blocking thing but then noticed it was always the same ones that I could not watch player perspective, the radiant middle three.

    System is: Windows 7 Home, GT 630 2GB, 4x2.3GHZ Phenom, 4GB ram automatically updated.

    If it might be something I can fix please let me know thanks

    Had the same issue all SL finals. First 3-4 players go to a caster's perspective.

    Restarting dota2/steam seems to fix.

      Not for me I just went to check how one heroes aura was affecting another and bam not able to get perspective. I can't even select them with free camera so it is totally bust only the last in the radiant line up at top of screen from lef to right is clickable.

        Yesterday I couldn't select the first four heroes on radiant in free camera or player perspective. Had to completely restart Steam to get it to work. Just a Dota 2 restart didn't fix it.
