Slight delay

Sorry folks, but there were many more game-breaking problems with my map than I had anticipated, and I haven't had a chance to fix them yet. I was hoping to address them before I went on vacation (a real vacation, as in I'm taking paid time off of work to relax), which I was unable to. I'm away from home now with limited internet access, and won't be back for another week or so, so I'll have to ask you all to be patient for a little while longer.

On the upside, I've finished most of the work needed to make the map 1.24 compliant (which took bloody forever), so that should hopefully address many people's concerns about the new patch. Also, I've been in contact with IceFrog and he has agreed to provide me with some official support, which should make future releases much quicker and easier to do in the future. Woohoo!

In the meantime, I'll have to ask you to wait a little longer. I'll see if I can get any work done on this while I'm on vacation...but I doubt it. =P

I wonder if he's only doing it cause he's feeling heat from LoL and HoN.. either way I feel this move should of been made a while ago, as you obviously have skill.. I only play the AI, I'm a father, I can't donate a whole hour to undistrubed internet time, I need to pause and save games, so BMP's AI's are how I play dota.. yea, I play once in a great while, and I can hold my own at lans/bnet .. but if it wasn't for BMP, I prolly wouldn't play dota. With that said, Congrats BMP, I hope you take full advantage of this situation, and something wicked awesome comes from it, thank you for the AI's , and seriously, you are the reason I actually play dota.

Don't worry. Good quality on your map is better than fast release. You and IceFrog will make good cooperation with the AI map. Enjoy your vacation! I still in fasting month...

It's great that BMP is working on support for 1.24, I prefer playing the AI maps over the official ones, and the latest AI map which works with 1.24 is 6.27 which is FREAKIN' OLD.. Can't wait for the release!!

Where can i download a good Ai map that works with 1.24?

Shiphire said...

I salute you for all the works you had done for all dota offline gamers!

K0CH said...

Langan : download a 1.23 - 1.24 version switcher.. then you can play pretty much any version. google dota utilities version switcher

Drealar said...

Like K0CH, I too play DotA because of your AI maps... well started since Cloud's and RGB's. Unlike many players who like the challenge in bnet or LAN parties, I prefer playing DotA only with my friends (no leavers, acceptable cursings.. hey we're friends, easy to plan game time). So when there are 5 or less of us online, the AI map is a must. I can safely say 80% of the time only 3 of us can play at the same time, so it's AI map 80% of my DotA games :P

Hi BMP,

Even though it is great news to hear. But what exactly has changed in your working process, now that IceFrog has offered some support?

Have you found any benefits in the new function set offered in patch 1.24?

As always thanks for the greatness that you bring to DotA.

Greetings,
ST

Reverend Joe said...

Langan said...

Thanx K0CH, it works.

Hi.(:
I am sorry I do not know much EnglishI am simple from Russia, and is concrete from Siberia).I when played to a Dota 6.61b PA4, has found a bug at Bane Elemental. When I use Nightmare on the enemy that dies in the sleep. Those die in general on whom I conjure. The present nightmare xD
