  • [Confirmed] Unable to pick heroes

    Just encountered a bug where the game successfully loaded but the hero pick screen didnt load for myself and one enemy player, i was streaming at the time and here is the VoD where the error happened http://www.twitch.tv/mr_blakadder/b/329931019

    Tried the dota_sf_hero_selection_seen and similar console commands, talking ingame with the enemy ruled out: being party leader, Buying something from the store before the game.
    Both myself and the enemy tried restarting dota, restarting steam/dota, varifying cache now will update

          Minimap showed both teams as white, fog of war covered the whole map and you couldn't select a hero.
          I know this screen from Private games, where you somehow failed to load (timed out) and everyone went back to lobby. When you finish loading, you get the same results.
          Please, just call me buny.

            This happened to me ages ago: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=28795

            Nobody could confirm it or give me any reasons for it happening.

              I had a similar issue, but it happens reproducibily in bot games, and when the hero pick timer counts down it gives a win to the other team.
              I wrote up a bug in this format but your thread seemed to fit, so I will leave it here.

              Summary:
              This is a low priority bug that can cause a bot game to effectively be short circuted before it ever starts. It will cause the game to load and it will appear that the player has already selected their hero, as well as all the bots. However, the hero selection will have never appeared, and the game does not begin.

              Repro Steps:
              1. Start a bot game via Practice With Bots (I was using Unfair/The Radiant)
              2. Random your hero immediately.
              3. Quit the game by using the arrow in the top left, and click the disconnect button.
              4. Immediately(sometimes this can be up to a few minutes, though it will always work if you do it immediately) start another bot game in the same fashion.
              5. You will now be in the state that causes this issue.



              Result:
              The game shows all heroes picked, but the towers (both friendly and enemy) are white instead of having their normal colors, the timer counts down.
              Note, I am definitely not the same hero as the previous bot game, this is an entirely different hero.

              Expected Result:
              A new game should commence and hero selection should be allowed.

                Well, the game is already finished by the time you are loaded, so I'd expect it just to terminate correctly. Also you can type "jointeam [good|bad]" and the picker will appear but that won't do a thing besides assigning you to a team.
