  • [Needs Repro] Game Crashes During Teamfight

    Match ID: 43593734

    I think around 55 minutes in game time (replay time I'm not sure), there's a team fight at tier 3 top tower. During this fight, omniknight uses his ulti and a few seconds after my game crashed. When I reconnected, it seems 7 others game crashed also. I don't know the exact time because whenever I view the replay and try to skip around, the game also crashes.

    I've tried to find similar threads but this one seems different since it's a team fight near the base and not at the rosh pit.

    Edit 1: I can watch the replay if I do not skip around. Replay time 1:00:22, is when the crash happens. If I play the game at 0.5x speed, I can watch the fight normally. If at 1x speed, my game crashes.

    added to sticky.
    still needs repro though. this probably has something to do with reeeeally many aoe spells getting released at the same time (gale, battle call, shiva, guardian angel, spill damage, etc).
    Make sure to read the Forum Rules as well as the stickied Threads of the Forum Section you are posting in.

      I think it's related to this: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=69103

      This happens to me every first "big" teamfight of my game. I don't know if it's a graphic card issue but mine is updated and I have no big deal to run the game in full graphic mode (very fluide) but when there are multiple big AoE spell, the game crash.

      Exemple: I was playing Enigma and I crashed during teamfight around min 19. http://dotabuff.com/matches/178797589

      I was the only one to crash so it makes me thinking that it's probably a graphic card issue but I run the game in full graphic mode without any troubles. I play dota 2 for more than one years and this issue only occurs since January 2013. Please note that when it crash, it's seems that there is too much things to load but when I reconnect, I don't have any trouble for the rest of the game. I NEVER crash 2 times in a game. Only once and only during the first big teamfight. I don't know if it is relevant but I sometimes crash during the hero selection if everybody press "play" in the same time. Like for the teamfight crash, it seems that there is too much things to load in the same time. Maybe a memory issue?


      Important details: I use to play on a 5 years old computer with windows XP but it seems that a lot of people have the same issue with way better config.

      Proc : Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.4GHz
      Memory : 3.25 Go
      Graphic : AI Radeon HD 4870

      You can flame the config, but fact is that the issue only occurs since January.

        I think those aoe spells need some optimization.

        I've amd phenom II x4 945, 4 gb ram, Radeon 6780HD graphic card. Although my network settings configured to "low", nearly every big team fight, where all aoe spells used, my fps drops to 0 or network hangs like 1-2 secs.

          Guys guys, I've got some suggestion. These crashes began to happen after the biggest update that was called "optimization update"(or smth like that - it was ~2GB and made a lot of engine fixes...at least sort of).
          (sry for bad english, i cannot explain this in other way. If someone can-please,do it for others)

              Yeah,that's what I was talking about. There is one more issue that appeared after this patch - I should exit game and re-open it after each match,because it will crash immediately after connecting to the game. Same thing happens when I'm reconnecting and match isn't paused.

                  Things seems to be worste for me. Now I have spikes in game and it still crash. Crash are even stronger and I have to reboot computer ....


                  edit: Before this patch, lowering graphic setting had no effect on crash. It seems that after this patch, lowering graphic setting has a positive effect on crash. For me, removing shadow removes crash for the moment. I need more games to confirm.

                  edit2: I confirm. I run windows xp and since the last patch, putting shadow to "low" and texture quality to "mid" totally removes crash issue for me.
