New Layout Selection UI by Valve

June 18th, 2014 by admin No comments »

Where does he keep it?

So Valve updated the Loadout Browser today with a new UI. The good news is that it looks great, the bad news is that old loudouts (all of the loadouts saved on this site) are incompatible with the new Loadout Browser.

My plan is to update the way the loadouts are exported to be compatible with Dota 2, and to do some very important updates to the site. I don’t have a timeline on any of these updates, but I am working on it!

Thanks for all of your support and thanks for using my site.

Terrorblade and Phoenix!

Where does he keep it?

Hey everyone, the new update just dropped so I’ve added the two new heroes: Terrorblade and Phoenix.

Terrorblade sort of clips the “Pick Hero” button at the bottom of the selection screen, but it does that in game, so until Valve changes it, I’m going to keep it the same too (for the default layout).

Enjoy the new update and Chinese New Year!

Wraith King and Legion Commander!

Where does he keep it?

Hey everyone, I hope you’re enjoying Wraith Night. I’ve added Legion Commander to the site roster and updated some of the hero icons and names that have changed recently (although I think Windranger is less cool sounding than Windrunner).

Also, I’m on the lookout for a new general “Roles” layout to put into the editor’s preset dropdown, because the one I created when the site launched is way outdated. If you’ve seen one in the gallery that looks really good, and more importantly is accurate to the current metagame, link it in the comments! Or better yet, create your own, add it to the gallery, and then link it here!

Thanks guys,

Fixed the Export dropdown

Thanks to a very helpful user, I have squashed a fairly large bug where the Export button in the dropdown was exporting a blank file.

If you see something else that looks screwed up, please contact me!

Thanks again for keeping your eyes open for bugs and thanks for using the site.

Working on Abaddon

July 15th, 2013 by admin No comments »

Where does he keep it?

Hey guys, I’m working on adding Abaddon to the site, but I’ve run into a problem with GCFScape (the tool I use to extract the hero icons from Dota 2).

I may have to add a temporary icon, or scrounge one up from the internet, but I would really prefer to have it straight from the source.

GCFScape is giving me an illegal character error and crashing before I can extract anything. Anyone have experience with this? Drop a comment if you can help out.

Much appreciated!

Edit: Problem Solved! For anyone else that stumbles upon this post looking for a solution to the same GCFScape problem that I had, my solution was to update my version of GCFscape to the latest version available. The version I had was incompatible with the dota file system and updating it fixed the incompatibility. Hope this works for anyone else that is stuck!

Hey guys, long time no update!

Today I’ve added Tusk to the layout, and added 10 great layouts from January to the Top 10. Congratulations to the winners (and sorry for the delay!), these are some great layouts.

Added Troll Warlord

Troll Warlord has been added to the site! I’ve also updated some of the names to match their new ones like Doom and Outworld Devourer. If there are any other names that changed that I forgot about, please let me know.
