  • +playdemo crashes the client

    I know it's early days to be caring about things like this, but supplying the +playdemo option, as below, currently causes Dota 2 (Source Engine Build 5248, dota Version 40) to exit immediately.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe -applaunch 570 +playdemo replays/15362753
    The replay file exists (playdemo appears to append ".dem" automatically if not present). The command playdemo replays/15362753 works as expected from the console (although in both cases "Warning: fell out of small heap!" appears when the client is run in -dev). You get the same crash if you embed the command in a .vtest and load it with --testscript.

    Just thought I'd flag it in case it's a trivial fix. The current state is a fairly major barrier to trying to automate the process of turning demos into videos.

    Thank you for the report. I was able to reproduce the problem and a fix for it will be in our update next week.
