Yeah Im seeing the exact same error and I've tried reinstalling steam / dota 2 and am beginning to consider a complete clean install but i would prefer to get some more info before going to that extreme. DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS GOD DAMNED ERROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sick to death of being unable to play could a dev at least tell us if this error is being fixed or going to be fixed?

After updating today, I am receiving this issue also. My nephew's account worked fine, while I couldn't connect to a game server. I would time our and get an error saying I couldn't connect to the server. While my nephew was able to connect and play. We are on the same network. Again, it worked fine last week.

My nephew (after a few games) is now not able to connect to a game server also. We are at the main screen but can't watch or start a game at all. We can however create a lobby, it just seems to time out when trying to connect to the game.

(and yes, we are getting the #cef_error_header-138 error.)

*EDIT*

Oh and one thing I noticed is that I can not restart the game after leaving it. It seems as if dota.exe is still running. When I try to end process, it says access denied. The only way to get it out of memory is to reboot my laptop.

*EDIT #2*

After turning off my firewall, I was able to get the blog/news inside dota2 (no more #cef_error) plus I was able to play a game. I guess after updating the game, my firewall didn't recognize it anymore and didn't allow it outside the firewall.

My issue is fixed.

Same here, last update caused this error to appear in my case.
Can create lobby, can join lobby, cannot spectate, join game etc.

Not sure if related - using ESET Smart Security 5.2.9.12

Update on the subject:

Tried setting rules to allow all communication (both ways) for dota.exe process - didn't help.
Tried uninstalling ESET Smart Security - it works. So there is a problem with newest Dota2 version and ESET.

Any suggestions are more then welcome.

EDIT:
My problem was solved after setting the rules again AFTER reinstallation of firewall. Doing that before reinstallation still didn't allow Dota to connect to servers.

EDIT #2:
Nope.

I have been having the same exact error, except for one difference.

#cef_error_header-105
#cef_connectionproblem

Still the same problems as you guys, and a re-installation of DOTA didn't work :/
Any solution yet?

This bug has been around for about 3 months for me. Refreshing usually helps, but its still...well...not the way it should work, I guess

#cef_error_header-138

#cef_unknown


Can't connect to any games, or view any. Started with the disconnections and red banner warnings. I can't even view the store or any updates through Dota.

All this wait and drama over DIRETIDE, and now that it's here I can't even fokken play it!

Can someone please address this and give us an answer as to what is going on. Or at least point us in the right direction so we can take this up with the right channels????


Cheers,
