      Yeah, screenshot would be cool.
      The Scrolls of Haize are concise on this matter:
      With youth comes grave responsibility.
      A thousand years of youth have fallen behind,
      and still I fill the time with games.

        Hmm, I just realized that I noticed that when playing the beta test build the minimap looks different, kind of sharper...
        And I run the normal client with -novideo, but the test client without any commands. I'm going to check this out.


        • #5
          So I tried both of them and the minimap when running without the -novid command is sharper and better looking, the difference is clearly visible.
          Screenshots of both minimaps and the graphics settings:
          (However I don't think the settings make any difference... They were the same when taking both screenshots.)

          I started 2 private lobbies with the same settings, same hero, radiant side, no difference, I don't what's up with the dire buildings showing up with -novid active.

            This is a weird bug. Hope it gets fixed soon.


            • #7
              I tried and got the same result, using the main client. I had this problem for so long but didn't know it was because of -novid. Thank you for figuring that out.

              Edit: This problem applies to the loading screen as well.

                Sorry to bump a 2 year old thread, but this exact same bug is happening to me, with the -novid option, but it also occurs when I alt+tab regardless of if I have -novid in launch or not.

                edit: Forgot to mention, this problem only started happening after the latest patch that removed wraith night.

                    It's an old style settings UI, the picture should have been taken pretty long ago.

                    Edit: yep.

                      same issue... i use novid so i can get to game quickly, but it's a shame I have to deal with a less-sharp version of the minimap.

                          Never noticed this. Novid or without. I just played 2 games, 1 on an account with novid and another on an account without. There is no distinctive difference.

                            distinctive enough for me, it's not as sharp at all.
