  • Dota 2 crash on startup after new patch Mistwoods

    Good afternoon,

    I'm playing DotA 2 several years on the same laptop HP Probook 4530s, its low cost/spec laptop, but still working, and playing dota on minimal settings.

    Well, after new patch 7.28 Mistwoods, DotA 2 totally crashes after click "Play".

    What do I mean? - Well, i click "Play" steam button, and then he shows up loading dota2 icon in the middle, and few seconds after, he should give me the main menu dota2 screen... Well, how it appears, it show's me back to steam library, and shows there is not openned dota... And the most important thing, it doesn't show the crash info! It just quits!

    Help guys, I have tried -safe mode, -autoconfig mode, update drivers, etc, but still doesn't work, like it is the bug of the new patch.

    Help fixing, thanks!
