    Patch broke the ability to launch custom games with dota_launch_custom_game

    It prevents any attempts to launch any custom game with dota_launch_custom_game claiming that custom games can only load files from /custom_game directory while there are no files outside of that directory to begin with

    After showing that error message the game crashes to desktop.

    It's not that. I've just tested dota_launch_custom_game reincarnation_offline reincarnation_map_beta and it works fine.

    Are you sure you've followed the basics?
    source you work in being in \steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\content\dota_addons\name
    compiled into \steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota_addons\name

    Maybe start over by modifying a built-in example?

    Can you try loading "cavern" with the client not being launched in tools mode?
    Because that crashes with the same error for me, and it worked fine before that update.
    I understand that I probably should use tools mode for development but it has longer loading times and 2 times less FPS for me, so I only used it when editing panorama due to changes updating the interface without having to reload the game.

    I did not have the client in tools mode when I tried it (reincarnation is a workshop-published game, and I've made an offline storage variant of it some time ago - I launch it via normal dota).
    Will test cavern and others when I get the chance.

    So after a break from modding I decided to try it again to see if anything changed and I was really surprised to see it did. but only if I selected the gamemode and the map by using the arrow keys in the console, trying to type the gamemode name and hitting enter I got the same error as before. I dont even have a slightest clue to why they coded this stuff to work this way.
