    Roshan timer cfg

    EDIT: DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE, IT WORKS ONLY ON LOCAL LOBBY WITH SV_CHEATS 1




    Credits to reddit user /u/iheartdisraptor that found this new dota console command and shared this roshan timer script

    Roshan timer !

    Open notepad and copy paste this

    Code:
    dota_center_message 5 "Roshan timer started!!"
    
    dota_center_message 300 " " 
    dota_center_message 305 "5:00 - Aegis warning"
    
    dota_center_message 360 " "
    dota_center_message 365 "6:00 - Aegis expired"
    
    dota_center_message 420 " "
    dota_center_message 425 "7:00 - Roshan warning"
    
    dota_center_message 480 " "
    dota_center_message 485 "8:00 - Roshan can spawn"
    Save in in X:\steam\steamaps\common\dota 2 beta\dota 2\cfg as Roshan.cfg

    then open your autoexec if you have it and add this line in it


    Code:
    alias "roshanxxx" "exec roshan.cfg;chatwheel_say 57"
    
    bind "z"  "roshanxxx"
    If you don't have autoexec then easy make one ( open notepad again copy paste code then save in same location as roshan.cfg just name it autoexec.cfg )

    You can edit code and msg displays.

    If you did everything correctly, whenever roshan dies you can just press Z button and you will active script that will give you important notifications,it will display time when roshan dies in team chat and big nortification visible just to you,then it will it will give you notification that aegies is close to expire,when aegis is expired,roshan warning 1 min before he could posibily spawn,times when roshan can spawn and on end 11 min time that roshan is spawned.

    When you press Z you should see this on screen



    Also here is example of aegis warning (1 min before aegis will expire - 5 min from moment when you pressed Z)





    This is not cheat,this is just helper tool,config and you can't get banned for this,worst thing that can happen it that Valve will remove this command.

    Code:
    dota_center_message
    So just get used to press button when roshan dies and you're fine



    Enjoy !



    Edited:

    Removed notification on min 11 because if it happens that roshan spawns earlier than 11 min, for example 8.35 min and you kill him,you wound't be able to start script again because there is still notification on min 11 to be displayed.

    Also there is bug that if you start script just before game ends,scrpit will give you notifications on start of next game,there is no way to reset or stop script after you press button.

    Is it just me or doesn't it seem like this gives kind of an unfair advantage? Don't get me wrong, if the function exists I don't blame people for using it, at all, I just feel like it sort of takes away a skillful element that some people (myself included) used a lot of time to master, and now it's available with a single button press?

    Definitely a nice share, I saw it on Reddit too and I don't question the usefulness of such a script (which is undeniable), I'm just afraid the people who use it will get too reliant on it (same way with people who use Tower Range mods or other stuff in that category)

    I'm for that Valve make this as options to all players,not just for those who knows for script,as you said most players learn this on harder way to remember and have some game sense or used to type in chat time (including me also) when roshan is dead and we would just track what we typed on chat and we would know when is 8 - 11 min from time that roshan is killed,hardest thing was to remember to type time on chat,but w/e Dota 1 also have aegis notification by default so i dont have anything against this.

    Also if people rememeber to hit button they would probably remember to type time on chat,that is always hardest .

    It is advantage as long as it is not in game option but it is not that unfair,everyone can type times on chat this just makes thing a little bit easier and cool looking

    However there is big chance that Valve will remove command after that post on reddit was on front page..
