  • Menu addons (or external observers)

    This is a bit of a touchy subject, but I want to made an addon to the main menu. Specifically, I'm looking to listen for the match ready dialog appearing in order to send a push notification. I don't want to actually change the UI in any way, just monitor the popup. I've gotten it working on Source 1, but obviously it broke with no Scaleform.

    I know there's no way to do this currently, and likely not going to be an official way. However, I figured it (probably) can't hurt to ask if anyone has any ideas and also propose this functionality?

    I'd prefer to not have to make users run a third party program in order to do it, but that's a potential option as well. If any of the devs read this and have any ideas about reaching into the Panorama UI from outside of DotA, I'm open to anything at this point. Though, I know doing so would be pretty sketchy. I'd much prefer to use the WebAPI over any of this, but that's not an option currently either, unfortunately.

    Mount your own VPK and override one of the base panorama files.

    Use at own risk, VAC probably won't like it.
