  • List of broken console features / commands after DOTA 7

    All _sf_ commands that were used with scaleform ui, have not been ported to the new ui. Few examples:
    dota_sf_hud_error_msg 0; // Hide error message text when ability on cd etc. (now, freaking huge and with an opaque red background!)
    dota_sf_hud_shop 0
    ; // Hide shop ui, but still allow buy using shop keys
    dota_sf_hud_force_spec -1
    ; // Auto-hiding spectator popup
    dota_sf_hud_force_broadcaster_selection -1; // Auto-hiding broadcaster popup

    Demo overlay cannot be toggled from console/bind anymore
    cl_showdemooverlay 0; // How often to flash demo recording/playback overlay (0 - disable overlay, -1 - show always)

    say_student Removed from the game! Why is it that any form of useful self hint ui is hindered every major patch... Typical usage before:
    bind space "say_student Remember: everyone has bad games. Everyone makes mistakes. Even IceFrog..";
    Power usage before:
    bind ins "incrementvar dota_player_smart_multiunit_cast 0 1 1 | say_student";

    If it ever gets back, a forced disable command should be added (dota_ability_learn_mode 0). And per ability learn command would also be nice (dota_ability_learn 0;dota_ability_learn 1;dota_ability_learn 2;...).
    I think it's less work to just enable remapping of the Ctrl key...
