Dota 2 in offline [Eng]
This guide is no longer valid.[/b]
There are times when you know that some time you will not have Internet, but you want to play dota.
Here I will describe a more convenient way to start training with bots and without the Internet.
This guide was written at the request of some of my friends. The essence of the problem was that even in offline mode steam, and without the Internet, Dota would not working properly - if you start the game with bots, then game immediately ends.
For a start, run steam in offline mode. In fact, this step is not mandatory, without the Internet, steam will offer you go offline.
Go to the folder ..\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg Create a file autoexec.cfg (if this file is already exists, proceed to the next step)
Parameters listed below, paste in the autoexec.cfg using a simple text editor.
con_enable "1" //==Dota 2 in offline mode==// alias "offline0" "sv_cheats 1;sv_lan 1;dota_start_ai_game 1;dota_bot_set_difficulty 0;map dota.bsp;" alias "offline1" "sv_cheats 1;sv_lan 1;dota_start_ai_game 1;dota_bot_set_difficulty 1;map dota.bsp;" alias "offline2" "sv_cheats 1;sv_lan 1;dota_start_ai_game 1;dota_bot_set_difficulty 2;map dota.bsp;" alias "offline3" "sv_cheats 1;sv_lan 1;dota_start_ai_game 1;dota_bot_set_difficulty 3;map dota.bsp;" alias "offline4" "sv_cheats 1;sv_lan 1;dota_start_ai_game 1;dota_bot_set_difficulty 4;map dota.bsp;" //==Dota 2 in offline mode==//
Now everything is simple, run Dotа and enter in console for example "offline2" without quotes and will begin loading in a training battle with bots medium difficulty. Difficulty bots depends on the number entered 0 - Passive, 1 - Easy, 2 - Medium, 3 - Hard, 4 - Unfair

Command con_enable "1" activates the in-game console, it can also be activated by other means. For do this, open the library of games, then right-click on the game, select "Properties" in the "General" tab and click on "Set launch options...". In the window that appears, enter "-console" without the quotes.
