  • Showcase mode breaks replay viewpoint/viewpoint dropdown selection

    Sometimes when watching from a caster viewpoint in a replay, for some reason if they use showcase at any point (or even if they don't? - perhaps they hit some other hotkey) it will remain selected and seems to override both their real chosen viewpoint (eg, free camera or player perspective) and actual player perspective view for the rest of the replay. You can mess around with pausing and flicking through modes to fix player perspective but Caster view is always showcase view - weirdly, the caster still controls what hero they are focused on, so you get a constant flip between players.

    It also messes with the replay viewpoint selection, so that selecting a mode may not select the mode you want, it will select a different mode. eg, selecting the caster view will actually select Free Camera.

    I noticed this during the 1v1 tournament, not sure if it has happened during proper matches. Maybe only affects Solo mid 1v1 mode?

    The bug is still present if you download the replays and watch from caster perspective, eg Semi Final one game 3 (matchid 765854686).

    Reproduction: just watch this replay from Godz viewpoint from the start. At 6 seconds before the start of laning enters showcase mode. From that point on, modes you select might not be the real mode, and Godz view is always showcase mode. Switching to Mik&XT shows their caster viewpoint (free cam) correctly.
