Client update
« on: December 23, 2020, 21:34 »
Is it possible to disable map updates in client? Dota7 takes over 100mb and + 100 with every update so wanna free some memory? After map deletion from folder client goes again with update/map downloading.

Not possible. You could

1. Disable updates completely (setting in xpam.ini). Enable if there is some important update, right now nothing planned really.
2. Make an empty file and rename it to DotA_Allstars_7.00e6.w3x .. this will trick the updater into thinking you already have the map. Or.. it should in theory, did not test it.

e4 is also an update now but I will remove that.

Thank you. Yes 2 files e6 and e4. It is very shocking to see nowadays all dota maps are not less than 70mb or over 100mb  :o
