  • When I enter a custom game my mini map is black can anyone help?

    Also is it possible to use my cosmetics in custom games? (I like to be prettier then the enemy)

    Hey Conraderino, a few things you will need to consider for the minimap to work in your game mode:

    - Have you enabled the setting in the compiler that creates a minimap on map compile?
    - If your map is larger than the default map size (ie. the tile editor creates a map of the default size when you first enable it, for comparison), did you use dota_minimap_boundary entities at two opposite corners of your map?
    - If you did use these entities, did you make sure that their height differences are offset to one being at the highest point and the other being at the lowest point in your map?

    If you are still having problem with the minimap, don't hesitate to ask more questions!

    As for using cosmetics in your game mode, you will have to script that through Lua as well as cache each individual cosmetic you want to be enabled in the game mode. You'll have better luck getting help with that over at the r/Dota2Modding sub-reddit.

    Edit: I just realized, you probably meant when you are playing someone else's game mode, in which case it's up to the developer of that game mode to make those things happen
