    Dota 2 constantly crashes

    It started about a month ago when my graphic card driver (to GeForce 320.49) and DOTA 2 both had an update. After updating I was unable to play anything on steam as they all behaved the same way:
    The application would crash as it attempted to open.

    At the time I tried doing some basic stuffs to go around the problem such as re installing steam and the games, and role backing the driver. I also followed some more complicated solutions that I didn't quite understand around steam forums.
    None of which worked.
    After a while I read a post that suggested opening the games in compatibility mode. It worked, for each game that I set the compatibility mode (I did to Windows XP SP3). So I didn't looked much further.

    I don't notice anything different in the other games, but DOTA 2 in compatibility mode got a bad habit of crashing, specificaly when:
    -A match was found and the game starts loading.
    -When closing Hero selection screen after pressing Play.
    -Randomly during the game, but usually during fights. (This one creates mdmp files of 0kb with "(failed)" in the name).

    As a side note I use Windows 7 Ultimate, have DirectX 11.0, updated the Graphic Card Drivers again to 320.49

    Computer Specs:
    CPU: i7 860 2.80GHz
    Graphics: GTX 260 (1792MB)
    Memory: 6GB DDR3

    Kind of a bump and to add something:

    Usually right after I crash, if I attempt to open the game straight away, it will be "Searching for DOTA 2 Network". So I close steam as well before opening the game.
    The crashes are getting worse... http://postimg.org/image/ks5zfcqhx/

    I'll include the 4 most recent mdmp as I failed to open them correctly (pointing to system32 etc...)

    All of these are crashes running out of memory on a 32-bit version of windows. We are testing an update right now that should help with this issue. It should be available on the test build sometime this week.

    Oh, thanks a lot for the reply. That puts me at ease, specially knowing it is being looked at. I'll patiently wait for the fix then.
    Keep up the good work.

    Wow a developer finally saying that we'll have an update! OMG it took one post by app0c while they never cared for 100++ pages of spam at patch anticipation station.

    Respect app0c
    I can't wait the day that i'll play my favorite game bug free and with an improved matchmaking/report system.
