    NOTES:
    - all credits go to bir3yk and his revCrew for this tool
    - updated revLoader; should fix settings issue now
    - updated launcher: you can now select any picture that you want and use it as your Avatar in-game

    - REVLOADER DOWNLOAD LINK
    - LATEST ITEMS PATCH
    - NAME CHANGER


    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    What is revLoader?
    - revLoader is a Steam emulator, which emulates Steam ticketing procedures when connecting/GC protocols when creating games (duh)
    - it's one of the best (if not the best) Steam emulators around; and it lets you "use" items that are not readily accessible by most users


    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    How to use:

    REMINDER: If you dont trust me (or this tool), make a back-up of your Dota 2 folder and try to experiment


    1. Download revLoader for Reborn, latest items patch, and the name changer (optional)

    2. Extract, and copy the files into
    Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\bin\win32

    The extracted items patch would go into Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\bin\win32\platform

    3. Use the launcher or start revLoader.exe directly
    NOTE: in case your settings doesnt work right, edit the values in rev.ini

    4. ???

    5. PROFIT!!

    Known bugs:
    - items may/may not work in-game


    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    FAQ:

    1. It shows "Steam validation rejected" when I start bot games/join games
    - Close Dota 2, turn off UAC, and run again (alternatively you can just right-click revLoader.exe in your Dota 2 folder and select "Run as Administrator")

    2. Can I use this in public/ranked matchmaking?
    - As I've said before, you CANNOT use it on legit Dota 2 servers. In the first place, you're unable to join in them.

    3. Will this be usable forever?
    - No; therefore we must wait for an updated version when revLoader doesnt work properly.

    4. It always shows "Connecting to the Dota 2 network"
    - Right-click revLoader.exe and select "Run as administrator". Alternatively, right-click, select Properties. Under the "Compatibility" tab, check "Run this program as Administrator", apply and press OK.

    *Name Changer was made by yours truly
    *Again, all credits go to bir3yk and his revCrew for this tool
    *This post will be updated soon; as of now, this information should suffice

    I've been visiting this thread once a week and i guess you've updated this thread. I'll keep this thread up-to-date letting you know that after a major, you'll update this thread.

    Only the Items are updated, the local files will be updated through steam. unless you want to copy someone with 6.4gb already.
    You can run revloader even though there are changes in both ui and gameplay. it's just the same.

    I didnt expect that the 7.00 patch would be a COMPLETE overhaul of the client haha.
    bir3yk's working on it now; let's wait for the output.
