  • Dark Rift update: Dota crashes on start

    After installing the Dark Rift update Dota crashes immediately after starting.

    The screen turns black for a second (indicating that Dota actually starts) but returns to the desktop immediately.

    My specs:

    CPU: AMD A8-7600 (with deactivated on board graphics)
    Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6870
    Mainboard: ASRock FM2A88X Extreme4+
    8 GB RAM
    HD: Corsair Force LS 60GB ATA

    Ubuntu 14.04

    I have the same issue on Ubuntu 16.04 when using no launch options. When I switched to using the Vulkan API, Dota 2 started.

        I have the same problem, but on Windows 8.1. I tried everything, but still not work.
