  • New dashboard is laggy / low FPS.

    Is anyone else experiencing FPS reduction when on the dashboard? When I'm in a match it's fine, but when I'm out of a match everything is laggy as hell most of the time. Maybe it's the fact that the main screen the Dota2 webpage now...or the animated flames in the backround. Either way, is anyone else experiencing this?

    You're not alone, Its also gotten more laggy for me too.

      Yea I just replied toa thread about this. Turning off the sparks in the backround really doesn't do much...the FPS drop is still there.

        I thought i was the only one with this issue. But my fps suddenly dropped to 12fps, even down to 8! Something needs to be done!


        • #5
          Particularly when I open my profile, framerate drops and sound starts to get choppy.

            I honestly could probably ignore the new god-awful dashboard if it didn't screw over my FPS.


            • #7
              Yup the lag is only on the dashboard. I dont experience lag issues when I'm playing and when I'm visiting my own profile or others it will lag.

                How did you turn off the sparks in background ?

                  Yep, the entire dashboard is laggy. I can't even type in chat without delays.

                  Game is fine even with higher settings.

                    The new Dashboard lags me more than the actual game did when I put all graphics on full. It is very bad now.

                    Might be in connection with the sounds? Since the sounds break up and lag very bad too.

                        Not sure about the lag. Maybe someframes droped. Just that background poorly looped.
                        And overall - its just not right style for Dota. Last one had really good theme.
                        Though this one has better layout.
                        IMO just don't use background, fill screen with windows, apply previous theme and it will be much better.

                          I agree, the previous style was much much better, and was fitting well.

                          And most importantly, the Dashboard shouldn't be a blog. The blog is less important than the rest of the UI, why make it central element? Makes no sense... I run Dota 2 to play a game, not to read a blog.
