  • Failed to get data from download buffer

    Every replay I try to download results in this message.

    Anyone know how to fix?

    Bump... still have this problem after verifying integrity, last resort would be to reinstall but don't particularly want to do that

      I'm going to guess the 'download buffer' are those .partial files the game creates in the Dota replay folder as it downloads. When you try to download a replay, does the game create any .partial files in
      steam/steamapps/common/dota 2 beta/dota/replays ?

      Also to check if the game might be having trouble saving the replay due to permissions, you could try running steam as administrator (right click steam.exe > run as administrator), then launch dota 2 and download a replay.
