autoexec.cfg topic

For everyone who doesn't know, you can make a .cfg file in your dota folder to automatically run when you start up the game. To make a .cfg file, open notepad (or similar programe) type in what you want and save it as a .cfg (note that by default in Windows you can not edit file extensions. That you have to change in your window manager) You save the file in:
Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\cfg

Most of this stuff I learned from Rhy and all these key bindings I just picked up from this topic on reddit.

//here is something cool. When you press x, it selects the courier,
//grabs your items, brings it to you, and uses the boost. Note that as or right now,
//it doesn't re-select your hero. I am trying to get that working though.
alias "quick_courier" "dota_select_courier; dota_ability_execute 3; dota_ability_execute 4; dota_ability_execute 5;"
bind "x" "quick_courier"

I am not an expert on the commands, but I am playing around with what you can do with them. Here is all the other console commands from the wiki

If you have anything else that is cool, please feel free to add it!

I have an autoexec.cfg (and it's a recognized as a cfg) saved in my cfg folder in my dota 2 beta folder.

It reads

con_enable 1
dota_range_display 1200

But it won't work. :(
