  • New Dashboard background freezes

    I was experiencing a Dashboard lag/crash issue with the "embers" UI (3 to 5 seconds after loading the application would lock), so I fixed the issue by setting dota_embers = 0.

    Now, with the updated UI, I am experiencing the lag/crash issue again.

    Is there a similar flag I can set to disable this background?

    Thank you.

    [EDIT] I found and deleted "dota2_ti2012_dashboardbg.usm". Problem solved.

    Haha, I had the same problem, and was going through the dota files to find the new animated background so I could remove it. Once I found dota2_ti2012_dashboardbg.usm and removed it, the lag issue was gone. I came on the forums to post this fix, only to find that I could have saved myself some time and trouble by reading your post first :P.

          I never had a problem with the ember background, but the new one is causing massive slowdown after a few games. Some kind of memory leak?
