The Pirate captain is a good example of an announcer that has unused dialogue for no particularly good reason. As such, I decided to fix that with some scripting of my own. And since valve did something on their end which made all the 'custom' lines work as intended, I can release this to the public.
The updated script contains the following dialogue updates:
- Denying towers
- Random purchases
- Hero-pick Announcements
- Generic Hero-pick announcements
- Picking up cheese
- Teamwipes (for both the enemy and you)
- Hero-kill responses (Special lines if dying hero was Kunkka or Tidehunter)
- Hero-death responses
- Added some lines to pre-existing response rules for variety reasons
To get this working, download the scripts from here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/6yxsqjs9ttf1h5a/ahoymematies.rar
After that, extract the contents of the .rar in your dota 2 beta/dota/scripts/talker folder. (If it doesn't exist, make one)
Then you need to make dota read the scripts. Open Steam, right-click Dota 2, go in settings. From there, open Advanced settings and type "-override_vpk" in there.
After that, all is well and fine.
