Dashboard Massive LAG!

  • I've had the game for a year and a half and I just started getting this lag in the game's menu. I also get it in the CS:GO menu now.

    Another weird thing - my framerate in Dota 2 (gameplay) is fine but it gets cut in half when I open the scoreboard. These are all recent developments for me.

    AMD Phenom II 945
    8 GB RAM
    Radeon 7870

    Turning the embers off does not fix the problem for me.

    • Embers lag Quick Fix


      this is what I've gathered from elsewhere to fix the lag. Instead of opening the console everytime to disable the embers effect, just create the file autoexec.cfg (you can just copy any .cfg file, rename it and edit the contents) and type in 2 lines:

      con_enable "1"
      dota_embers "0"

      Then place it in C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/dota 2 beta/dota/cfg/

      The first line line enables console. Now you can turn off your -console in launch options.
      The second line removes the embers effect.
      All this is automatically executed everytime you launch dota 2, as the filename autoexec.cfg suggests.


      (p.s. if the embers com back, double tap console command)

      • Now here's another thing. Yesterday, after the dashboard update, I tried playing a game, after disabling the embers. Even though I usually run Dota 2 on med-high with around 50 fps, this time, the fps was like 5-10. So, after fiddling a bit, here's a helpful tip for anyone who's STILL having lag. The reason I was still lagging was because of a second overlay GUI that worked in the background. Basically, if you have Xfire, Raptr or something like that which has an In-Game UI, it will fuck your shit up. I turned off my Xfire, and now Dota's running as smoothly as ever.
