View Full Version : My fix for dota fps / sound bugs

As i'd posted here (http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=66663&p=698239&viewfull=1#post698239) but it's probably more useful in this section :

Hi guys,

I've now been playing dota2 for weeks on my MBP Retina 15" :

At first i've gone crazy about the settings, and still had HUGE drops making it unplayable and big sound related problems.
Then i disabled In game Steam, and TADA, i'm now playing with NO major fps issues (but a few crashes bar rarely in game).

I'm playing now with all settings close to max, and have a constant 60 fps (vsync is enabled).

Curious if it can help others,

From there i've added the -nod3d9ex to launch options, and have a perfect experience bar a few crashes when alt-tabbing.

i tried this before but it didn't work for me. There is an update coming out today which should actually fix these problems though.

Thanks for the info, sorry it didn't help.

Looking forward to that update, enabling in steam makes it a 5fps experience for me :/

Latest update made things better but any in game popup 'friend online' can cause a huge fps drop, and force an alt tab.

Disabling in game steam is still required for a descent game experience imho.
