Default Dota 2 - How to play offline


Hi playdota, first thread here, wanna try to make it useful.
How to play dota2 offline?
What do you need for it?
Steam and any version of dota2.
How to play?
First of all start offline mode at steam.
Open launch options and enter this commands:
-console (adds console)
-novid (no intro, bold guy from valve)
-nod3d9ex (game runs at directx9)
-windowed -w xxx -h xxx (this is ONLY if resolution is bad, where xxx are desireble width and height)
-noborder (no border on window)

Now start the game. Console appears over the "connecting to dota2 network". If it didnt appear then open it "`". Type this:
dota_start_ai_game 1
sv_lan 1
sv_cheats 1
dota_bot_set_difficulty 0/1/2/3 depends of skill level you want.
Map dota.
After map dota command game begins. Just wait a bit.
Hope it helps. Sorry for bad english, not my native language.
Ps. if you cant join radiant or dire just write in console jointeam good or bad

You can play offline with bots, the LAN option isn't already implemented.

There is a shadowed button for LAN in Dota 2. Just wait and Valve will implement it.

Why would you play offline?

Too poor to have an internet connection in the 21st century?

I feel useful today
Quote:
"sv_cheats 1" Enables cheats to use other commands.
"sv_lan 1" Wouldn't hurt? I read on the wiki that it optimizes for LAN.
"dota_start_ai_game 1" This enables bots to load into your game.
"map dota" Loads up the dota map. If you're feeling festive you can load up the other holiday maps.
If you dont enter the hero picker after loading and the objects on the minimap are white then do "jointeam good" for radiant or "jointeam bad" for dire
haven't tried, but seems to work

And when someone creates a new thread you will tell them to use search function then they will eventually post on that thread which will cause necro again.

hmm

speaking about dota 2 offline,

i do not have any intention to bring other forum here,

but i had dota 2 offline, server files and config files to make it offline + AI bot + LAN

from red*** and allied*** and it's worked successfully.

many people from that forums conducted local tourney also.


if u ask, why im playing offline? my internet sucks? retard machine?

i will answer, i had my own Steam Dota 2 online official with 600++ wins (just search Tears of Blood, that's me)

my internet connection is one of the best connection in my country with my usb modem stick speed is 14,7MBPS.

my machine is an old laptop, MSI CX 420, 2Gb DDR3 ram, 1gb Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5470 1Gb DDR 3(dedicated integrated VGA, only consume 80 mb of my RAM)

so, i have 2 kind of dota in my laptop. offline & online.

if moderators & admins here give me permission, i will share how to make it offline + ai bot + LAN.


thanks

Problem with those kind of files you can never verify the source, patches break it, and the GUI just ain't made for it.

What DOTA2 needs it's an official LAN/offline mode. It needs to co-exist with the online.

Game will apparently officially release prior to the international so might not be that long. But I still say they have abandoned the idea including LAN or allowing people to host their own games.
Will find out sooner or later if I'm right.

So far i can see,

no LAN play availability from their updates.

but the latest installer offline version that includes latest training mode (sniper vs tide , sniper vs Axe) already released,

also the server files , config files and emulator for Dedicated Offline Multiplayer updated too from both forums i told earlier.

and it could make more easier if u have original Alien Swarm game with steam.. coz the server files can be use to make offline multiplayer for dota 2 (LAN). dont ask me how, i just take the files, etc etc etc
