  • [REQUEST] Provide tool to benchmark/stress test our system within Dota 2

    IIRC there was a benchmark within certain games like crysis, where you can benchmark your system by using the game itself.

    Since many are having various issues like crashes and FPS drops, may be we can introduce some tool to stress test the system to see if it can handle dota .

    The test can start with 2 heroes using their ability, then 4 heroes, then 6 .. and keeps on going, something like Diretide final Rosh battle, where we all spam our abilities, that stresses the systems a lot, as there are usually high animations and effects going on.

    I can also use this tool to stress my overclocked GPU or trying to figure a sweet spot for max performance and max quality.

    Also not to forget some data received from server or emulate a server transfer to see if it doesnt crash or result in spikes.

          FYI. type into google "will my computer run this" and it should come up with a decent benchmark site. i use it often

            You don't need Dota to do this for you. There are many programs that can. Dota does not require a lot.

              There are countless programs , but there is no Audio-visual stress thats like dota 2 , nor which needs a network activity which also plays a major role in performance.

              I can use

              * 3d mark

              * Furmark

              * Kombustor

              * prime95

              All work fine and arent crashing my system as most dont have hard disk r/w , they stress gpu or cpu.

              What we need as i said in first post is a dota 2 specific emulator of a team fight which starts with one hero , then builds up slowly along with audio and network emulation if possible directly from servers
