  • Editing vpk


    Anyone know how to edit vpk on custom game (Arcade) on dota 2. I've tried using gcfscape and modifying some files and after i recompile the vpk on steamapps/workshop//570/<id-custom-game> an error comes out that client and server does not match. If anyone can help please. the game I'm playing is so lag when monster couldn't be killed by 1 hit and if it's hit a lot of times games is super lag. Also with 4 players on the game.

    Thank you.

    I don't understand why you need to edit vpk files.
    You can use Source 2 Resource Viewer to open vpk files.

      I want to remove some terrains and effects in the game to reduce lag. therefore, it would kinda be playable with 4 players on it.

      Can it modify the files without decompiling and recompiling it? (using Suce 2 Resource Viewer)
      This is the custom game i've been playing.

        I doubt that this way you will be able to solve the problem.
        Judging by the reviews, it seems to me that this problem is caused by poor optimization of the custom game itself. If you know what exactly is causing the problem, try contacting the developer and pointing out the problem.
