  • Dota starting up very slowly for no reason and now it simply hangs.

    At first this was occurring for half of the year because I go into sleep mode. Now I don't even know what's wrong. It just shows the dota logo, and then it hangs until I close it.

    I have an 8700k and plenty of ram, so I definitely shouldn't be running into issues like this. I've reinstalled Windows 10 before and this doesn't seem to be an issue on the software side of things for me. Currently using Intel HD 630 graphics due to the fact that I had to RMA my RX 580. I've used DDU in safe mode to remove the previous AMD drivers, as well I have installed the latest Intel graphics drivers. I've tried -safe_mode, -gl, etc.

    Very disappointed. I should have saved my money instead of buying a level 3500 battle pass.

    edit: Fixed it by taking off safe mode and OpenGL and using Direct3D 11
