Dota 6.56 AI - Dota-Allstars 6.56 AI Map Updates (Expect something soon!)

dota allstars 6.56 AI loading screen Images Dota 6.56 AI - Dota-Allstars 6.56 AI Map Download Section. Well Dota 6.55 AI haven't finish yet, but Dota 6.56 already released. But actually this is a good news, because hopefully the new version will make the map more stable and the AI maker/porter (BuffMePlz) can work more easily. But still, it will take a lot of time because from 6.54b to 6.55 contains a lot if changes. Here is another word from him:
The time it takes for me to finish a port is proportional to the magnitude of the changes made per version. Yeah, 6.54 came out quickly because the changes between it and 6.53 were minimal, and 6.53 came out only shortly after the official map because 6.52 took me so long that by the time I finished it, 6.53 was out already (and the changes between 6.52 and 6.53 were also minimal).

6.55 is more like 6.52, so a gap of time between when 6.51 and 6.53 ports is probably roughly indicative of how long this will take.

Also, I've been meaning to do a complete framework reconstruction on the map to improve compatibility and stability, and now that several systems have been rewritten (including the bloody game clock), now seems as good a time as any to do that. I started it yesterday, but it means this will take even longer...but hopefully the end result should be more stable than what we've got now.

On the upside I did finish updating the terrain and regions. =) AI can move normally around the new field now.

Update:
Wow, i think BMP is made great progress, here is his latest statement on 16 October:)
An update, for those who are curious about progress:

-All terrain and unit locations have been updated, and AI can move around normally.
-All item recipes have been updated (though new items have not been completely implemented yet).
-Roshan aura routine implemented
-Admiral Proudmoore and Windrunner implemented
-Implemented assisted neutral killing routine (if single hero assist on Sentinel/Scourge kill), but gold distribution has not been updated yet
-Implemented bonus gold/XP in AOE of hero death

And my personal favourite:
-Updating much of the map framework resulted in -dm working properly again (to the best of my knowledge)

And yes, I am working with 6.56.

Yay. Still much to do, but I'm sleepy now. =P


Progress is coming along nicely...I'm actually working quite a bit faster than I had anticipated. Who would've guessed?

Update part 2
Here is his another statement on 18 October :)
Still to do:
-New BKB and Scroll of Town Portal
-Bounty mechanics (towers, mostly)
-New game timer
-Creep spawning mechanics
-New visuals
-New commands (-quote, -ha, -fr, -cm, -trees, -itemswap)
-AI for new heroes/items (though unlikely for now)
-New -rd mode (maybe later)
-Move fun taverns
-Replay stuff (low priority)

What's done:
-A few extra bug/typo fixes (bugs and typos that exist in official 6.56 also...but I'll fix them anyway)
-Updated AI behaviour for new terrain/spawnpoints/itemcosts
-Most everything else in 6.55/56 changelogs that's not on the "still to do" list

Yayayay


Wow, i think it will finish next week. Stay tune in this post, i will tell you when it's done :)

Update part 3: (23 October 2008)

It has come to my attention that there are a LOT of fake AI maps floating around on the internet, and as far as I can tell, they don't work. And they're definitely not from me.

I figure most of you already know that, but I just want reiterate it in case we get another repeat of an idiot posting about how "the newest map doesn't work".

Again, I will update here (DotA Allstars forums) as soon as I have a map, so stay tuned and tell your friends the same.

Also, I've finished all the item work (BKB, Scrolls, Couriers not being able to use Wards), and as far as I can tell the AI should use these properly (though I've been wrong before about that, heh). I still need to update visuals and tower bounty mechanics, which should be fairly straightforward. The game timer/creep spawning will take a little more work, so depending on how well it goes I might just drop it for Rev. 1 and implement it in Rev. 2.

I'll probably have some people do some beta testing in about a week and then a release somewhat shortly thereafter. If all goes well I'm hoping we can see something in ~3 weeks (if not sooner!).

Thanks for everyone's patience.


Hmmm, that's great news. Let's just wait a little more shall we. But i hope he will dropped Dota-Allstars 6.56 AIplus v1.52 Rev. 1 first, so while waiting for Revision 2 we already can play with AI :)

Update part 4: (24 October 2008)
I've finished with the tower bounty mechanisms and visuals (most of them), along with some bugfixes. Really the only thing left is that bloody game clock, which when I tried to implement yesterday (again), broke the AI (again), so I promptly undid those changes (again). I've changed the creep spawn times to how they are in 6.56, but I might just manually address the new powerup/neutrals/Roshan/supercreep times with the existing game clock. You'll all just have to wait for the countdown timer, unless I somehow come across an amazing breakthrough that makes everything work.

Also, don't expect new -cm or -rd modes to make it anytime soon. They're a pain.

If I somehow find it in me to work as much on the map today as I did yesterday (for about 6 hours after work...I'm such a loser, haha), then I expect I'll have a rough beta done by the weekend.


Update part 5: (28 October 2008)
Right you are.

I never said anything about releasing this week; I said I would have a rough beta out (which I did, and it was rough), and now there are a few gamebreaking bugs that I need to address. One of which is currently very, very difficult to locate and driving me crazy.

I also didn't get a chance to work on it much this weekend, because I actually did stuff in real life. If you expect me to apologise for that...don't. =P


Ugh, i think this is bad news.. Let's hope BMP can resolve it quick. I already ask him about that major problem, and it can cause 4 from 5 games ended with fatal error :(

Update part 6: (2 November 2008)
Getting closer to being done; I just rewrote Tidebringer completely because it kept crashing the game, similar to the way Meld used to before I rewrote it.

However, there seems to be a more significant frame rate drop with large amounts of creeps than before. I don't currently have a good way of fixing it. =/ I'll keep updating the framework for future revisions, hopefully that will reduce the speed drop.

Stay tuned.

Yippeee!!! Expect the map very soon :D Uh, but on the second thought, don't get your hope too high because we don't know if a bug found again ^_^"

Update part 7: (3 November 2008)

Blablabla.. (alief: something about bug report, i cut it :p)
If you want these bugs to be fixed then you have to report them in a way that I CAN address them. Repro is key. There are almost 80000 lines of code in the script I work with now (before the optimizer removes comments). I won't go through all of them just because "it crashed this one time".

Anyway...

The beta stage is over. Expect something...soon.

Here it comes! :D

As usual, this post will be a place to discuss about Dota-Allstars 6.56 AI. I will update this post if there's any news about it and will place the link if the map is ready. And don't forget to check or even give your build about Alleria the Windrunner and Kunkka the Admiral Proudmoore on Dota 6.56. Until then, let's be patience and hope for the good news from BMP :)

The latest AI is now:
Dota-Allstars 6.56 AIPlus v1.52 Revision 1


Update
: It's ready!!! Go to this link: Dota-Allstars 6.56 AIPlus v1.52 Rev. 1

  9. @anonymous - no it's not a bug. The new BKB work that way. Everytime you use BKB, the duration will decrease until it reach 5 and never decrease again.

    @kroduz - if you read the post, this post is for discuss and share if anybody has a news about dota 6.56 ai map. So if someone know faster than me, they can share it here. And if the new map released, i will update this section and create a new post just for that map. I hope you can understand :)

  10. hey, does anyone here know about doom's devour abnormalities? On the latest map I've been using doom and devouring a creep, but too badly it only give me 10 gold at lv1 devour and 40 gold at lv4 on all kind of creep, not with the creep kill gold (I think on normal creep it should be 40+40=80, even on centa it only give 40 gold.. What a waste).. I realize it when I see the money counter, and that's it.. Already tried with the earlier version but it's the same.. I think this happen since the devour bar implementation.. Correct me if I'm wrong..

    ReplyDelete
  11. With the new devour you get the creep gold, when you cast the spell, not when it finishes.

Because the first place BMP gonna tell when he is finish is in the AI section on Dota-allstars.com, and i just check it (i check it almost every hour ^^) and it still not finished. Regardless, it will nice if it is indeed a functional AI map, but i suggest don't get your hope too high ^_^" Thanks for the info Eric :)

    not sure if it's fake

    ReplyDelete
  32. NEW EPICWAR.com dota 6.56 AI+ 1.52 (Rev 03) is false. Heroes dun move....False.....

    ReplyDelete
  33. HOLY SHIT MAN! WHAT THE @#$% IS UP WITH THE FAKE MAPS

    ReplyDelete
  34. Must be the ones that I'd seen in Dotaportal.com as well previously. Now, the mods realized they are fake and they removed them all.

    I'm sick with those fake maps. C'mon! To those mapmakers who created them, if you want to distribute an AI map and show that you are able to design it, can you at least make sure that the AIs work well and not being a dummy?

    Meanwhile, I still patiently wait for BMP to create the AIplus. Go! BMP!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. those links r actually referral links or perhaps a money making system link.. haha.. they they upload fake files then linked them in order to get profit for those who dosent know wuts link bucks to..

    trust rapidshare, mediafire, direct http, adrive, 4shared dll links.. they dont make money out of downloads.. and they surely dosent make fool out of you or make use of u..

    ReplyDelete
  36. I THINK WE SHOLD GATHER SOME MONEY TO GIVE IT BmP FOR HIS REALLY GREAT WORK !!
    each downloader 1 dollar/euro and he will be rich soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Agreed, BMP deserves something for his efforts.
    Each downloader=1 Euro and he would have about 10k to 100k Euro at least with each version release. Thats kind crazy.
    But he is a really great guy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. GUYs i reckon its a good idea to give stuff to BMP but if we do pull this off HE BETTER QUICKLY MAKE THE MAP! I DYING TO PLAY WITH KUNKKA! GO BMP!

  95. Hi,
    Good work sir. But may I comment that
    the map hangs when I try to play 5 on 5.
    This happens when all heroes are in one place (team battles). I doubt that the cause is my laptop's specs.
    80,000 lines of code? wow, can I help? :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. I just wanna say that the game is always crashed whenever you use Windrunner. I dunno y, but whenever I use her, the game crashes early on the 1st blood, or around the end of the games. Can u fix this problem plz? I appreciate it ^^
