Do you remember the very first versions of the Dota 2 beta where the first item in your inventory was instantly activated without clicking again for some reason? Well, we liked that “bugfeature” a lot, especially for using with dagger blinks. Sadly they removed it in one of the latest updates, so we added the smartcasting feature for items to the new config version 1.5.0.!
Make sure you download the latest version of the Dota 2 autoexec and read the “Scripts” section carefully for further details on how to use the smartcast. I’ve added it to the first item slot by default, as it was earlier. But you can change it to whatever slot you like and as many as you like.
There is also a possibility to make smartcast work for spells, but I didn’t include it yet in the config because I suppose that Valve will add such a feature very soon. If you already want to use smartcasting for spells, check out the following link from the official Dota 2 Beta forums: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=30888. That great guy made it work using some config files and explained it very well in the thread.
If you encounter any issues with the new features of the KSL Dota 2 Config, let us know here. We’ll fix it asap!
Enjoy Dota 2 and see you soon
