Defense of the Shrines 2

Defence of the Shrines 1 was a Touhou DotA spin off which was playable only with War Craft III. Because WC3 was to be purchased in order to play DotS, it was not really accessible to the fans who had no money to buy the games. (Even if they were cheap cheap). After several years and the release of Valve's Dota tools, it seems the chinese development team have made a serious move to spawn DotS2. On MotK there were plans being made by several members to create DotS2 ourselves, but it seems the Chinese community was faster. Faithful fans who played DotS will be pleased to know that it will be based on DotA again and not LoL. We're returning back to core mechanics without the scaling system for STR,INT and AGI.

DotS2 uses the Steam DotA2 workshop it seems, so there will be a possible integration with DotA2 client. Which is for free! And thus DotS2 will be free to play as well at this rate, yay!

Cuc has provided supreme details here https://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,17466.msg1131928.html#msg1131928

How to prepare DotS2
  • Download DotA2 client to your Steam Library.
  • Preparing your DotA2 client for custom modes: read here
  • Basically, rightclick DotA2 in your game library
  • Go to DLC tab and tick the Workshop item.
  • Your steam will start downloading the workshop files (large).
  • Subscribe to DotS2 Alpha Steamworkshop link.


How to play
1. Make sure you are all friends to each other on Steam (or atleast to the hoster)
2. Boot DotA2 as usual
3. Go to Play > Custom Games
4. Drop down the 'Browse By' box and select 'Subscribed Games'
5. Create if you want to host, otherwise you should be able to see existing lobbies.
6. Play DotS2.


Warning
- Game is in heavy Alpha and there are almost no tooltips existant. You will feel lost
- Old DotS item page on the wiki can maybe help you provide some info. Like a Mushroom / Cucumber giving +2/+1 stats etc.
- Alt + tab item guide from old 0.967g.
- Hosting will indeed require huge resources on your PC.
- Upon start, the game launches a seperate 64bit instance or something of DotA2, it didn't crash.
- Loading takes time, don't touch anything. Anything.
- Leaving/disconnecting button isn't implemented yet. Just close the game, you will return to the original DotA2 client.
- If you're hosting, you may want to increase waiting time for loaders. While loading yourself (dota splash logo) hit tilde to open console and type dota_wait_for_players_to_load_timeout 600. This will allow loaders to take 10 minutes to load.

Tonight I will try to host a game. See timer here: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20141001T23&p0=16&msg=DotS2+test+play+&csz=1

I haven't discovered yet how to exactly install DotS2 ( I am currently at work), but cuc's information should help with that for now.

Edit:
A few pingtests across the globe from my home town:
US East: 100 - 120ms
US West: 180 - 200ms
Asia: 300 - 320ms

We did a 2v2 early test : Tapsa (Youmu) + Hele (Tenshi) vs Yookie (Yuyuko) + Xoxx (Mokou)


Memory usage with DotS2 while hosting mid game:
4gb / 8gb
CPU: 60-70% (While streaming, 70-80%)

Few times lag spikes detected by Yookie. Ping was to be around 60ms?

My Ping was ~30 most of the time (but don't take me as a reference point, since I live "near" Hele) and it played perfectly
except for those two lag-spikes which may well have been on my end. Though Xoxx seemed to have one too.

(You only won because of your stunning charisma. :V) (sorry, I love bad jokes)

I don't even remember who put the above in my sig. [Wasn't me] Nor do I understand why I keep it here anymore.
Those two facts sum me up pretty well.

Man this sure brings back memories. Well anyways I wonder how differently some of us would play compared to several years ago.  :D

Also 6 lunarite eiki was my favorite part of the game and hope it stays.

Edit: custom modes are 64-bit only.

I started installing DotA 2 at about 5pm when Puppy went to work.

It had hit 60% when you started streaming. Least I'll be ready for whenever the next session is. Just need to hope the internet doesn't fail me~ XD

Is it true that non-64bit users are having issues joining the game? I thought only for hosting it was required.

Dota 2 Customs games (including the workshop tool) don't work on non-64bit overall, since the current alpha is only available for 64bit systems.

Same here. I wonder if this laptop can even handle it. I know it heated up something fierce when I tried a while back...

Nah, you're probably thinking of Raikaria. I'm US West. But beyond that, apparently my dorm is in the connectivity slum area of the whole school, and I get a lot of lag spikes here. This morning before breakfast I ran a speed test and...well
