    [How to] Fix FPS

    I have improved fps a little bit. There is a way what I have done:

    1. Go to /Users/<User>/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/dota 2 beta/dota/cfg/
    2. Create file with name autoexec.cfg
    3. Put this params to file
    dota_cheap_water 1
    cl_globallight_shadow_mode 0
    r_deferrer 0
    r_deferred_height_fog 0
    r_screenspace_aa 0
    gpu_level 0
    cpu_level 0
    r_deferred_specular 0
    r_deferred_specular_bloom 0
    dota_portrait_animate 0
    r_deferred_additive_pass 0
    r_deferred_simple_light 0
    r_renderoverlayfragment 0
    r_shadowrendertotexture 0
    r_WaterDrawReflection 0
    r_ssao 0
    mat_picmip 2
    mat_vsync 0
    mat_triplebuffered 0
    rate 80000
    cl_cmdrate 31
    cl_interp 0.01
    cl_interp_ratio 1
    cl_lagcompensation 1
    cl_pred_optimize 2
    cl_smooth 1
    cl_smoothtime 0.01
    cl_updaterate 31
    cl_spectator_cmdrate_factor 0.5
    cl_spectator_interp_ratio 2
    dota_set_avatar 9
    dota_force_right_click_attack 1
    dota_minimap_hero_size 500
    dota_embers 0
    dota_disable_range_finder 0
    developer 0
    dota_hud_healthbars 3
    dota_sf_game_end_delay 0
    glow_outline_effect_enable 0
    I used to have some problems, but then I did that and now the game works perfect.

    Will this make the graphics worse or something? Also will it help with the crashing? The fps is bad but the crashing is really annoying.

    This does fix the fps and made it a lot better. It's like playing a different game now. Only problem is the graphics are a bit worse. But still, it's better than having really bad fps. On another note i have not crashed since i have done this. This is a nice temporary fix, thank you OP.

    The crashing actually does still happen, it's just not a frequent with this.

    Guys to even further reduce crashing download gfxcardstatus 2.3 and before opening steam set the option to "discrete only"... i think the crash is caused by the frequent switch of gpus between alt-tabbing....
