How to use mods for dota 2 reborn? That question always asked by many dota 2 player that really want to use mods cause no money for some expensive items. And we already posted about installing mods with other methods but valve always trying to make us can't use mods in game. In this post we're using VPK Creator. This method is the other way if dota2changer, shady intaller, etc aren't working well. Hopefully you can follow the instruction below correctly, so you can use mods in game.
This guide is provide by Shutnik.
Open your dota 2 folder, go to:
Steam > steamapps > common > dota 2 beta > game > and create new folder with any name you want. For example let me use "dota2mods" folder.
Go to Steam > steamapps > common > dota 2 beta > game > dota > and search file with a name "gameinfo.gi" and open it with notepad++. Look carefully at red box, add with your mods folder name whatever it is.
*Note : every big update / verify cache, you should change it again. So you better keep the 2nd one in other folder.
Download -->> VPK Creator and extract it. Look up the folder named "pak01_dir" > and Paste any mods (materials, models, particles, sound, etc) that you can download from Immortal Treasure III 2016 mod, Shadow Fiend Arcana mod or Zeus Arcana mod, etc inside it.
After all mods are placed in pak01_dir folder, back to VPK Creator folder and double click "Create vpk-archive from pak01_dir folder.bat". It will create pak01_dir.vpk.
Cut or Copy "pak01_dir.vpk" to dota2mods folder that already you've created before at Step 1. Run Dota 2 Reborn and Have Fun guys.
