    Not possible without an API.

    I don't think this has been said yet, but I can't seem to play Earth Spirit or Fire Spirit with this plugin downloaded.

    Too sad Bot development stopped by the devs as well as bugs fixes.
    <-- My work is done, if this gets implemented
    Also: つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Give Soloqueue!
    Need some incentive to start a match of dota?

    Earth Spirit and Ember Spirit both seem to be working on my system. I've tried a local server and -override_vpk.

    Do you have an old copy of the npc_heroes.txt file somehow? The version linked to in my original post definitely works for me.

    Well, the first line of the file I downloaded says:
    // Dota Heroes File - thepotoo's edit as of 12/06/2013 to improve the bots
    So I doubt it's an old one. And by local server, you do mean just clicking "Practice With Bots", right? Or am I missing some really obvious other way?

    That one should totally work. You can run the file as a mod on a local server (https://github.com/Matheus28/SourceM...a-local-server), or, just launch the game with -override_vpk as a launch option and click "Practice with Bots". The second method is a lot easier.

    I'm doing exactly that. The only things I can think of that might be interfering is that my npc folder is located in
    C:\Starcraft\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\scripts\npc
    Instead of the regular area due to a file transfer a while ago. I also have other launch options set other than -override_vpk, so those might be doing something as well. I doubt it, though. Puzzling.

    No idea...the patch shouldn't really make a difference, as long as the game can launch. A couple things to check:

    Can you pick Earth Spirit without the mod?

    Is the rest of the mod working? (If you open the console and type in sv_cheats 1, dota_bot_give_gold 999999, do they use the standard items, or my modified ones?)

    Both of those are true. I just found a way to fix it though by meddling around
    I found the activelist.txt file in the same folder as the mod, and added
    "npc_dota_hero_earth_spirit" "1"
    "npc_dota_hero_ember_spirit" "1"
    to the bottom of it. Everything works fine now. Strange, without those two lines, I shouldn't have been able to pick them in any bot game. Thanks for your help! I hope someone benefits from this, at least.

    Sounds like a different modification to an old version of the game or something. Glad it's working for you now!
