    Bots difficulty with steam offline/dota 2 offline

    So we can now play dota w/ steam in offline mode and starting dota 2. (dota_start_ai_game 1; map dota) However, the difficulty command seems to have no effect (dota_bot_set_difficulty 4; dota_start_ai_game 1;map dota). How can we have the chain-stunning imba gold and exp gain bots on offline mode?

    I've found it uses what is set as default, ie when the game is started? I haven't tried console difficulty changes though, however mine are definitely played on unfair.
    Is it perhaps the method in which you start it? I start it through map dota -> dota_bot_populate, perhaps it uses the difficulty setting only when you populate and not through your command?

    I'm trying this now, will report back later. Also, do you need the command dota_surrender_on_disconnect 0 (not sure the exact command)?

    You only need that if you wish to spectate the bots. Remember to jointeam good/bad/spec.

    First add -console to Dota 2's launch options in the properties tab.
    Then when you start up Dota 2 if you're offline you should get stuck on the 'Connecting to Dota 2 servers' screen. At this point, press the tilde '~' key, the one to the left of '1'.
    Then insert the following commands:
    map dota
    jointeam good/bad/spec (Radiant/Dire/Spectator respectively)
    dota_bot_populate

    If you decided to spectate, also type dota_surrender_on_disconnect 0
