[DISCIPLES] Disciple name conflicts

Hello monks!

Today I realised 2 of my disciples were named the same.
This didn't seem like a problem UNTIL I had to choose which of them to give a buff. (This happened with the Cannibalize the Dead buff)
The choice dialog only shows the names of the disciples, and since they are named the same, I didn't know to which of them I was giving the buff.

This shouldn't be a big problem, I believe.

Best regards,

Ha.

Did you end up choosing the right disciple?

I'm not sure whether the ordering is preserved in this case. I assume it does. Maybe we should disallow duplicate disciple names?

No xD I chose the wrong one.

But you're missing one point:
There were only 3 options. One of them had 'Teii' written. However, I had 2 disciples named 'Teii', so I didn't know to which of them I was giving the buff.

Well, one out of 2:
- Disallow duplicate disciple names
OR
- Include the picture of the disciple in the option.

The second one doesn't seem that good, since the option buttons are too small to fit the disciple's portrait.
So, yes, I would go for the "no duplicate" option.

Ah, yes, that complicates things :p
It's not super high on my priority-list, but I'll write it down anyway for when I revisit that part of the code.

Cheers!
