    How to implement them in Dota 2 - by zik2021 and DreamCustody

    Portraits and Icons:

    New Installation Instruction:

    - Add "-override_vpk" (without the quotation marks) in Dota 2 Launch Options (Steam - Dota 2 - RMB - Properties - Set launch options...)
    - Download the packs you're going to use.
    - Extract the packs into \Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\ folder (if it asks you to merge folders, say yes).

    Test on how do they look:
    [​IMG]

    Killing Spree Sounds:

    New Installation Instruction:
    ONLY DEFAULT ANNOUNCER

    - Add "-override_vpk" (without the quotation marks) in Dota 2 Launch Options (Steam - Dota 2 - RMB - Properties - Set launch options...)
    - Download the packs you're going to use.
    - Extract the packs into \Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\ folder (if it asks you to merge folders, say yes).
    Exclusive for "Sound Mod": - Create "snd_updateaudiocache" in you "autoexec.cfg" (if you don't know how to do this, read instruction below)
    (Not need reinstall game/modification after Dota 2 update, but Valve probably can change some necessary files. I will say you about this on this forum)

    New download link:
    Direct link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/8z3efev70832hwa/PonyAnnouncerV1_5_1.zip
    (or you can find in my old link folder "Pony Announcer": https://www.mediafire.com/folder/s1coyhi9cxf7i/ )

    How to make "autoexec.cfg":
    - Go to "\dota\cfg" and copy config.cfg in there using your text editor. Delete everything in there and type in "snd_updateaudiocache" without the quotation marks, and then select "Save As..." (NOT "Save"). Save it as autoexec.cfg into the same folder.

    But shouldn't it have a more cartoon-ish feel? Looks a bit too detailed for me.

    Enchant:

    I'll try to give Impetus a more cartoony look and replace that butterfly for one of the butterflies from Fluttershy's cutie mark.
