  • [Bug] -dashboard launch option broken

    After the patch that just happened, the dashboard does not change when using the -dashboard launch option for any of the previously working options.

    international_2012 - only loading screen
    international_2013 - only loading screen
    international_2014 - only loading screen
    spirits_2013 - neither
    frostivus_2013 - neither
    newbloom_2014 - only loading screen

    Expected: changes both loading screen and main menu background

    edit: forgot ti4 option

    Yes, please fix this.

    I love 2012 blue, I always use that one, it is amazing, please let us use this commands or even better if you could add this in Dota video options so we can choose what theme we wanna use without commands.

    But if nothing else fix this
    Thank you IceFrog, Valve and Dota 2 team for everything you doing for Dota 2 community.

      Bump, it's been a month. Was this an intended change?

        You can work around it with placing a text file called "startup_video.txt" in \SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\resource\flash3\videos
        Its contents should be like this, if you want to use let's say international_2012:
        Code:
        "startup_video"
        {
        	"embers"
        	{
        		"filename"		"embers"
        		"align_to_top"		"0"
        		"enabled"		"0"
        	}
        
        	"international_2012"
        	{
        		"filename"		"international_2012"
        		"align_to_top"		"0"
        		"enabled"		"1"
        	}
        
        }
        You also need to put the parameter -override_vpk in the game's launch options.

          Yeah, but override is very buggy options, so yeah, Valve needs to fix this and make it accessible without override.

            I do agree, just providing a workaround in case someone couldn't find a solution
