    List of useful console/launch commands in Dota 2

    List of console and launch commands anyone? Throw any useful ones you know (and what they do) in this thread and I'll add them. I only know a few so would but nice to know other out there.

    Launch Options
    To open, right click Dota 2 on your Steam library, click Properties, and click Set Launch Options. There must be a space after each option (ex. -novid -console)

    -novid Skips valve intro video
    -console Enables consoles in game (default hotkey is `)
    -windowed -w # -h # -noborder Window mode with no border, REPLACE # WITH YOUR DESIRED W AND H

    Console
    Enabled via Launch Options. Default key is ` or ~. If you have a keyboard without this key you can rebind this key by typing "bind KEY toggleconsole" in console. This can also be enabled by adding a auto-execution file described below.

    net_graph 1 Displays network information such as fps and ping.
    dota_camera_accelerate 49 This will make the camera stop exactly where you want it, 0 will make you unable to move your camera. Thanks uw_NB and Pyros.
    dota_force_right_click_attack 1 This will enable right click deny.
    dota_minimap_hero_size 600 changes the hero marker size in minimap
    dota_hud_health_bars 3 0 = disable hp bars, 1 = no dividing blocks in the healthbar, 3 = the default with the blocks
    dota_health_per_vertical_marker 250 changes the block size in health bars, 250 = new block every 250 hp

    Changing In-game Avatars
    Type in the corresponding command in console to set up your in-game avatar.

    Changes the avatar that is shown when you invite players to a party:

    dota_set_avatar 0 - Default
    dota_set_avatar 1 - Crystal Maiden
    dota_set_avatar 2 - Kunkka
    dota_set_avatar 3 - Faceless Void
    dota_set_avatar 4 - Furion
    dota_set_avatar 5 - Yurnero
    dota_set_avatar 6 - Bloodseeker
    dota_set_avatar 7 - Lich
    dota_set_avatar 8 - Axe
    dota_set_avatar 9 - Pudge
    dota_set_avatar 10 - Puck

    How to set up auto-execution file for console commands.
    If you don't want to type in console commands every time you open up steam you can create an auto-execution file which will do whatever is in the file at launch.

    Create a notepad file and save it as autoexec.cfg. Save this file in this directory: steam/steamapps/common/dota 2 beta/dota/cfg

    Then just type in the console command just as you would type it in console, and when you launch DoTA2 it'll already be enabled. Use // to make a comment and each new line is a new command. Here is an example how your file might look.

    //console (it won't pop-up itself like when u set running option -console)
    con_enable 1
    //console toggle
    bind "C" "toggleconsole"
    // right-click deny
    dota_force_right_click_attack 1

    Awesome. Got to remember this when I get the chance to play Dota 2.
    Im becoming a man
    Maybe all that it means is
    I face the world for what it is
    And not what I wish it could be

    Here's couple more:

    "dota_minimap_hero_size 600" - changes the hero marker size in minimap

    "dota_hud_health_bars 3" - 0 = disable hp bars, 1 = no dividing blocks in the healthbar, 3 = the default with the blocks

    "dota_health_per_vertical_marker 250" - changes the block size in health bars, 250 = new block every 250 hp

    You can also search for commands with "find text", for example "find camera" would list you all commands that have the word 'camera' in them.

    You should edit the 1st post so all the commands are easily available.
