  • Weird Sound in client (Blog, Store, etc. won't load)

    Ok so last three weeks ago, this bug appeared in my Mac Retina (Late 2013).

    When I open DotA 2, I can hear weird sounds every time I click different tabs in my macbook. The sound looks like it's coming from a TV (static sound that you hear when there is no signal). The sound also appears in-game and it causes freeze or sometimes crash the game.

    Also, the tabs that has external link to websites won't load like the blog page, updates page, heroes page, store page, and builds. I hope this would be fixed ! Thanks!

    Same problem can be found here :

    The photos below show that the tabs won't load the content in it !

    PS: Sometimes, alt-tabbing causes the sound to appear.

    I've had this same problem for a week or so, it sucks. Have to play with game sounds off. There really must not be many os x players if something like this can last for so long.

    I tried reinstalling, it didn't help so maybe someone will be saved the effort.

      If you switch out of the steam beta, the sounds stop i think. it helped me. though now my problem is that the game crashes on startup, without fail
