[Not An Issue] Items in override dont display ability names properly

Custom items in override folder with special use abilities don't display the ability name but the item name instead.

I copied the ring of Gaxx, gave it a different filename and put it in override.

When i make that item in-game, the abilities in my bar don't show the correct name (should be Haste or invisibility here) instead it simply shows 'Ring of Gaxx'.

    This is not a bug. Item ability names are defined in the TOOLTIP.2DA. Since you've renamed the Ring of Gaxx, you'd have to create a new entry in this file pointing to the renamed item.
    For simplicity you can duplicate the line starting with "RING39" (Ring of Gaxx) and rename the value of the first column to the name of your item.
