      Every time means? Mine only crashes sometimes when I left the game or I died.

      • It means that I start watching a game and after 2 minutes my dota crashes!

        • After new patch (yesterday or the day before) i get flickering in game. Before it worked perfect, now with highest settings on i get annoying flickering & it's unplayable. It works almost (less frequent flickering) fine when i reduce settigns a lot. Also the game is crashing like crazy (even before new patch) - 2-3 times per hour. Sometimes when i try to relauch it after crash it can't connect to the dota 2 network, so i need to relauch it again & then it works fine. My specs - imac 2011, i7 3.4ghz, 16gb ram, radeon 6970m 2gb, OS X 10.8.4, I run game in native resolution - 2560x1440. Hope u solve it asap, because right now this game is really frustrating for me.

          • After the newest patch, game keeps crashing at random times.
            Everything worked smoothly before this new patch.

              • I really wish they would optimize Dota for Mac. I get terrible framerate at about 20 fps even at all settings at minimum. The audio clips out at times and it sounds underwater. The audio also cuts in and out constantly. I also get flickering and graphical bugs.

                • My fps is usually fine, it's funny at the beginning but it gets better after about 10 secs. It's the random crashing thats a huge problem for me.

                    • Is anyone having any graphic tear issues? My screen is constantly flickering at the main menu and loadout and less frequently ingame but still graphic tearing here and there. When i turn off v sync the game goes crazy

                      • Man these new issues are such a bummer. Before this recent update my client was near flawless, only issues were the random tearing at max settings (that didn't bug me much because of it's infrequency, and usually I would lower the model to medium, shadow to low and fog off and be great), and the audio sometimes cutting out to silence for a few minutes at the worst. But, these never affected my gameplay.
                        Now it's crashing every time I start a new game after about 5-10 minutes (like level 7-10 usually) no matter how many times I reinstall the client or restart my computer.
                        Back to Bootcamp until these issues are worked out..
                        But we do appreciate the work Mac devs in bringing this awesome game to our OS and hopefully the next update will fix these issues for good.

                        • Anyone having a problem where after minimising, the FPS drops to less than 50% and the mouse and keyboard don't work for 20-30 seconds?

                          Comment


                          • Hi Zoid, very appreciate the mac version. Got many problems here, say low fps, fuzzy graphics even in 2880 resolution, and loud fan noise, but looking forward to more optimized update.

                              • The best solution for me to play DotA 2 on Mac without any problems has been to disable the Steam overlay. You can do this for DotA 2 only by right clicking the game in your Steam games list, click Properties, then untick the Steam Community In-game checkbox.

                                It might be that I'm running the Mavericks DP, but I've had nothing but smooth frame rates on my 15" RMBP since then.
