Play DOTA 2 offline on LAN as host:
Open console by pressing the backslash key "\" (without the double quotes), in the game lobby.
Here are the commands:
dota_bot_set_difficulty 3 (you can set it from 0 to 3 , 3=Unfair, 2=Hard, 1=Medium, 0=Easy)
dota_wait_for_players_to_load 1
dota_wait_for_players_to_load_timeout 120 (120 is time in seconds, you can change it)
map dota (to create map)
dota_bot_populate (to fill the empty slot with bot/AI) Skip this if you will play with another player.

If the console doesn't appear or the revloader gives error, try this following possible solution:
- Go to your Dota 2 installation directory where revload rev.ini located. "...Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\bin\win32"
- Edit the REV.INI using Notepad.
- Find the string that contains this line: ProcName=dota2.exe -steam -silent /help
- Replace that line with this: ProcName=dota2.exe -console -steam -appid 570 -novid -silent /help

How to Connect to LAN host:
connect (Change this IP to the IP of the LAN host. To see the IP, on windows, press Windows Button+R, this will open the run command, then type ipconfig and press Enter. You'll see a bunch of information, but the line you want to look for is "IPv4 Address.")

How to play DOTA 2 Reborn Custom Maps/Custom Games in offline mode:
  • [message]
    • Note
      • Before proceeding, you must have downloaded DOTA 2 Reborn Custom Maps first.
1. Locate custom maps directory in "Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\570". Use 'search' in the top right of the window then type "publish_data" (without the quotes), it will show you many results of publish_data.txt, open one of it and you will see the name of the custom map, right click your chosen publish_data.txt and click 'Open File Location'.
For example : I have opened publish_data.txt that contains 'Overthrow' then 'Open File Location' I found 455312245.vpk. And that vpk is what we need to extract using GCFScape.
2. Go to "Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota_addons" then create new Folder.
For example : I will create a folder named 'Overthrow' then open GCFScape.exe, select and open 455312245.vpk then extract it to "Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota_addons\Overthrow"
3. After extracting, open DOTA 2 using revLoader.exe, in console, type:
dota_launch_custom_game example
Which will look like this when I open my custom game 'Overthrow'
dota_launch_custom_game overthrow
4. Done! Enjoy playing DOTA 2 Reborn Custom Maps or Custom Games in offline mode, absolutely no internet required.
