    Dota 2 wont start (Engine Error)

    Whenever i start dota 2, it passes the first loading screen which is the guys head turning slightly around but when it gets to the red page, it crashes and a pop up comes out. This is what it exactly says

    CResponseFileParser::LoadFromBuffer: Unknown entry 'lay', expecting 'response', 'criterion', 'enumeration', or 'rules' in filescripts/talker/response_rules_pudge.txt(offset:31083)

    how can i fix this?

    no need for pc specs here, looks like the file was modified
    my file ended at offset 31080 so it must be modified
    that remaining 3 bytes was the "lay" the error was throwing

    try going to this directory
    <Steam Directory>\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\scripts\talker
    then download the attached file the paste the file in the directory overwriting the old file

    I hate people that put their Rig specs in the signature. This is not!
    CPU: AMD Trainwrecker AM5+ 12150 hexacontatetra-core 1.65 Thz | RAM: Corsair Revenge 4TB DDR6 (0.24-0.24-0.36) | GPU: Sapphire 9990 128GB GDDR9 Hexa-Fired (0.65/0.95/1.1Thz) | Resolution: @ 20480x12800

    All Specs shown in the signature are fictitious, any resemblance to real hardware, current or obsolete, is purely coincidental
