  • Any API is currently broken due to recent update?

    Coming back to bot script(lua, not ML) just for fun. I noticed that most scripts is discontinued because of game updates, and the API didn't get updated for months. Is there any broken API that I should know so I don't waste time on it?

    This is the analysis I had time for, unfortunately. It only covers DOTA 7.00, but I am sure it fits to subsequent versions as well.
    Obviously there may be more impact (or broken stuff) since then but I didn't have any time for DOTA for a long time, I'm afraid so I can't give any specifics

      The lack of Dev presence here for months on end made me pause any current development. I'm aching to get back into it, but I don't want to use my time to do so if there is no way to communicate bugs or ask for critical API functionality.
