Chroma Screen Utility

This map is a utility for content creators to record the dota hud or heroes doing actions in the game world. The map is all one solid color which will make video filters such as chroma key very easy to use.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- *How can I give myself items or spawn more heroes?*
Before starting the game, hit the create a custom lobby button on the in-game page. Add a password and then enable cheats and you will be able to use various cheat commands built into the game.

- *I am unable to enable cheats when creating the lobby*
When creating a custom lobby you must add a password to enable cheats. This is done by Valve for all custom games to prevent cheats in public lobbies.

- *What are the color values for the maps*
White - (#FFFFFF)
Black - (#000000)
Red - (#FF0000)
Green - (#00FF00)
Blue - (#0000FF)

- *I see shadows around the game world and below my character*
This is due to the ambient occlusion video setting. If you would like to remove shadows from below your character disable this setting in your dota client. It is recommended to unequip any weather effects when using the tool as well.


WARNING: Despite this being a 1 player custom game, failing to accept the match will still put your account on matchmaking cooldown so make sure to accept when prompted. Once you have picked a hero the game is safe to leave.

Well it happened coz I installed dota on another device. All works on old one. That's strange.

Any chance to fix the spawn cheats to allow for more than one hero to be made like in normal lobbies?

I'm not familiar with the sfm tools honestly so I am not sure how to load the map in sfm. My best guess is that you either have to point sfm to the installation of the map in your dota 2 game folder or you have to move the map from there into an sfm specific location.

You can find this custom game's files located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\570\512412700 (The location prior to \Steam\ may vary if you have installed steam somewhere else on your computer)

Source games pack files into the .vpk format so you will need a special program to open them. I use GCFScape myself but any program that can open up .vpk files will work.

In the folder mentioned prior open the 512412700.vpk file and you can access the map files in the maps folder nested within.

That's all I can help you with unfortunately but I hope it points you in the right direction.

Try adding a password when setting up a lobby and it should allow you to enable cheats from the menu without using the console command
