  • Add a Crossfade from the Loading Screen

    It hasn't really bothered me in other Source games because you'd often get dumped into a MotD, but with Dota 2 you just get dumped into something immediately. This could also be helpful for the split second when starting to watch a game that the camera needs to adjust. Not a huge gameplay thing, but just something that'd look good aesthetically.

    So you mean, when the game finished loading, it would fade in black, then fade from black to the game's waiting window ingame, right?

    Some of my (awesome) suggestions :
    - Left4Dead/Portal 2 style voice command
    - Music Transitions depending on area and time
    - Show full item recipe tree without opening shop menu

      Crossfade, as in, it fades from the loading screen to the game.

        err. What would be a great idea is to animate the fires and cinders burning the Dota 2 icon. After it finishes loading, it then crossfades into black to the hero ready window.
