New Engine Support

Support has been added for using Metamod:Source on Dota 2 on Windows. Note that only the gameinfo loading method is supported as Dota 2 does not have support for VSP plugins.

SDK Changes

AlliedModders has reverse engineered a Dota 2 SDK capable of building plugins. It is still changing often as the game itself changes internally, but it is enough to get something as large as SourceMod working on Windows. You can grab a copy from our Mercurial forest (see the bottom of the page). If you discover any changes yourself, we greatly appreciate bug reports or any attempts at notifying us.

New API Changes

Metamod:Source now treats Team Fortress 2, Day of Defeat: Source, and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch as separate engines, since compatibility between them diverges as they now receive game updates at different times. Additionally, Nuclear Dawn is also now separate from Left 4 Dead 2 for the same reason. GetSourceEngineBuild now returns new values for each except L4D2. Similarly, users of the "extended loading" API will see the new values in MetamodVersionInfo.
