  • New update break the custom game. Again.

    Hello. This time after new update I get this in dota 2 tools console: [ VScript ]: ...edator_vs_survivors\scripts\vscripts\addon_game _mode.lua:284: attempt to call method 'HaveAllPlayersJoined' (a nil value) in this function:

    function GameMode:OnGameRulesStateChange(keys)
      local newState = GameRules:State_Get()
        self.bSeenWaitForPlayers = true
      elseif newState == DOTA_GAMERULES_STATE_INIT then
      elseif newState == DOTA_GAMERULES_STATE_HERO_SELECTION then
        local et = 6
        if self.bSeenWaitForPlayers then
          et = .01
        Timers:CreateTimer("alljointimer", {
          useGameTime = true,
          endTime = et,
          callback = function()
            if PlayerResource:HaveAllPlayersJoined() then
                for i=0,9 do
                  if PlayerResource:IsValidPlayer(i) then
                    local color = TEAM_COLORS[PlayerResource:GetTeam(i)]
                    PlayerResource:SetCustomPlayerColor(i, color[1], color[2], color[3])
            return 1
      elseif newState == DOTA_GAMERULES_STATE_GAME_IN_PROGRESS then
      elseif newState == DOTA_GAMERULES_STATE_POST_GAME then
        _G.countdownEnabled = false
    This breaks the entire game. Valve, fix this please.

    Yeah I'm afraid many custom games will suffer from this issue until it's resolved.

      I had to move contents of GameMode:OnAllPlayersLoaded() to another proper place. It seems to work good in my case (at least I haven't seen any bugs for now), but other modders and they scripts might not be so lucky...

        Now after new patch another part of code doesn't work. Countdown timer and Item drops stop working... Idk how to fix this. Also console says nothing.

          Custom game bugs seem to be snowballing since valve has been focusing on core gameplay. Hopefully we can see some love soon.
          Every time you have an issue, spend at least 5 minutes on each of these four sites Google, Wiki, Github, and ModDota
          If you still can't figure out your issue, post your issue on moddota in as much detail as possible with a SSCCE. If you do not complete these requirements, than you will be rejected by the community. Try not to contact individual users for help as we are very busy.
