    Config.cfg auto reset.

    So ye... I couldn't find another thread about this.

    When ever I change any of the '1' or '0' in the config file (such as auto attacking / right clicking creeps to deny) it doesn't actually change the setting. As soon as I open dota2 it instantly resets all the settings to the way they were previously.

    I'm a bit confused..

    Any help?

    Create autoexec.cfg in same directory and type all commands in it. I dont think u can change variables in config.cfg.

    You can, it work.

    But you can't add new line, for example dota_disable_range_finder "0", it will be erased when you launch the game for the second time (it works for one game launch, it's weird).


    BTW, autoexec.cfg doesn't works for me, I have to use the config.txt (so I can't use dota_disable_range_finder "0" ).

    you have to do save as... otherwise you're using autoexec.cfg.txt. Either do save as or put the save name in quotes "autoexec.cfg" will save as a config file. You're doing it wrong.

    steam cloud overwrites any settings in the standard folder if edited manually, set to read only/update the cloud settings/disable the cloud.

    Autoexec.cfg not working properly

    I have created autoexec.cfg in "\Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg",
    it contains this:

    Code:
    dota_force_right_click_attack "1"
    dota_disable_range_finder "0"
    dota_minimap_misclick_time "0.5"
    dota_minimap_hero_size "650"
    dota_camera_accelerate "49"
    
    bind "SPACE" "+mod"
    
    alias +mod "bind w i_w;bind e i_e;bind r i_r;bind t i_t;bind d i_d;bind f i_f"
    alias "i_w" "dota_item_execute 0"
    alias "i_e" "dota_item_execute 1"
    alias "i_r" "dota_item_execute 2"
    alias "i_t" "dota_item_execute 3"
    alias "i_d" "dota_item_execute 4"
    alias "i_f" "dota_item_execute 5"
    
    
    
    alias -mod "bind w a_w;bind e a_e;bind r a_r;bind t a_t;bind d a_d;bind f a_f"
    alias "a_w" "dota_ability_execute 0"
    alias "a_e" "dota_ability_execute 1"
    alias "a_r" "dota_ability_execute 2"
    alias "a_t" "dota_ability_execute 5"
    alias "a_d" "dota_ability_execute 3"
    alias "a_f" "dota_ability_execute 4"
    I added this line to config.cfg
    Code:
    bind "F8" "exec autoexec.cfg"
    The problem is, whenever i start Dota2, autoexec.cfg doesn't seem to be working.

    The dota_disable_range_finder is still on 1 even though according to autoexec.cfg it should be 0. When i press F8 while in a match, it doesn't work either.

    The alias keybindings are not working either.

    What have i done wrong?

    autoexec.cfg not working anymore

    I have a good control conf that i took from this forums long time ago (just for my a4 gaming mouse), and before this update it was launching automatically from autoexec.cfg in dota\cfg folder. But after this update in every new map (even if i just reconnecting) cfg changes to default, and i must every every time write "exec mycontrols" in console. What is that? Can i do something about it?

    Thanks for the replies.

    It's already set to Read/Write allowed - I am saving as "Save As" and choosing "All files" to avoid it saving as Config.cfg.txt.

    How do you disable steam and enable it after the change?

    Also; Can anyone tell me if this is a weird start text to have in console on launch please:
    SetWaterMaterial()
    Steam config directory: F:\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\platform\config
    No split screen config file 'splitscreen_config.txt', using defaults

    The red lines are also read in the console.

    Thanks!

    Have no idea what that is...

    Maybe dev's can tell us, and about main bug too?
