    [Confirmed]Hero name search in captains mod doesn't work properly for some heros

    This bug has been around for at least 2 years, and everyone I've asked has the same problem with the same heros, heroes that had their names changed, IE Rattletrap to Clockwerk. I've couldn't find any threat on all of the internet reporting it for some reason. It should be really easy to fix as whatever array of names is parsed in this mode probably just has the old hero names and simply needs to update 50 characters of letter or so. I only know of it affecting captains mode and captains draft, they search find in all pick.

    SOME of the heroes that don't search properly:

    Rattletrap > Clockwerk
    Skeleton King > Wraith King
    Wisp > IO
    Magnataur > Magnus
    Windrunner > Windranger
    Necrolyte > Necrophos
    Lycanthrope > Lycan
    Rikimaru >Riki
    Centaur Warchief >Centaur Warrunner
    Furion >Nature's Prophet

    I know there's many more I can add them to the list if people report them.

    Also noticed entering spaces will kill any search, such as when searching for Shadow Shaman, Shadow Fiend, or Shadow Demon.

    Rattletrap
    Skeleton King
    Wisp
    Magnataur
    Windrunner
    Necrolyte
    Lycanthrope
    Rikimaru
    Centaur Warchief


    Not a gameplay bug. Moved to hero picker.


    It's because they never got updated in the game files, and the search seems to use those names.
    Please, just call me buny.

    ^Because they use the names in the files, where names with multiple words are seperated with a _ and not a space. Shadow Demon would be Shadow_Demon. Also shadow fiend shouldn't work, because he's Nevermore in the files.
    Please, just call me buny.
