New Dashboard = FPS Drops

  • New Dashboard = FPS Drops

    The new lobby screen drops my FPS a lot, whether in-game or not. I use the minimum video settings.

    When in-game, the game lags only when having the interface open, otherwise the actual game runs normally with no problems.

    CPU usage goes up when the new dashboard is open.

    was wondering if the new sparks would slow ppl like us in-game. so only if you shift+tab?

      same for me, its annoying.And I don't use the minimum settings.
      When I alt +tab my pc goes slow when I'm on the dashboard
      please fix this :/

        gah should have checked, just made a thread about this. Yes, I'm experiencing a massive FPS drop with the new dashboard.

          Its Pretty Bad

          I love the new layout alot. Its bery nice and sleek. The only problem I have is that the particle effects in the backround make my game move at a snails pace and I can hardly navigate the menu. If we could have the black backround again I'd be grateful. Even in the original game, it will run slow until the effects are covered with the black border.

            I think one of the point i care most it's the performance, even if the game is made for med-high spec, i love the change, i was wondering just a few days about the dashboard the old one it also feel like "heavy" for some reason. (maybe just a feeling).


            • #7
              The command "+dota_embers 0" for the command line which i got from "Jonathan" removes the particles in the background. Try it out

                new layout is good but on slower computers the animated background drops the fps pretty down, plz add in video settings that you can turn it off, it helps slower PCs

                    very beautiful, dark, grim, awesome. but FPS drops and that takes away all the spice in it. nevertheless great idea.

                    in the interface option i would like a background color changer option. purple is the color for me.

                    I can play these heroes all day long.

                      huge fps problems for me as well

                        Strangely enough the test client seems smoother to me. Dashboard and inside game. Even though the game smoothness could be due to different graphics options since the map and river seems darker.
                        I'm sorry Valve, but the only way I know how to coach players is with tough love.

                        We all play for fun, try hards are just WAY BETTER than you. Read this.

                            i get fps drops in menu too. but if it wasn't for the particles efects on the purple background i wouldn't have noticed it.
                            but who needs 60fps to see a button's state change from "pressed" to "released"?
                            just add an option to remove the particle animations in the main menu. turning the particle effects off in the main menu could fix the fps issues. or maybe something else than the 2d UI is using cpu/gpu power. only valve knows.

                              I have also noticed some performance issues in the menu.
