    A: No. Only use it when experiencing issues with settings not saving or etc.
    Btw i just added
    sv_forcepreload 1 (autoexect)
    A: not needed, does not help with anything
    dota_minimap_creep_scale 2 (autoexect) and
    A: was in the cfg under Dota 2 extra options (not in gui) section
    -map dota (launcher exe)
    A: not needed, does not help with anything
    Thanks for comments!

    btw I tested "benchvulkan2" so many times

    I mixed my config with your ideas + no bling mode, about 30% fps rise

    -dx9 -dxlevel 95 -nod3d9ex -high
    -dx11 -dxlevel 101 -nod3d9ex -high

    no difference at all.

    but vulkan: always crash


    but in rmm some games in 7.06 still feel shaky... maybe because this strange command panorama_experimental_limit_update_rate 30

    Ok so I'm using the potato preset cfg file, but my fps drops down to ~10 during the game. Now I have a pretty crappy laptop (gt 520m, 4gb) - but it's never dropped below 25-30 before. I only just installed Dota 2 today (last played it a few months back).

    Can someone recommend launch commands + cfg tweaks for me?

    I'm using fullscreen + 1280x720 resolution. All video settings at lowest.

    Your GPU is 2.5x-3x worse than the minimum required to play DOTA (at 30fps).
    If it's paired with an equally bad CPU, no amount of tweaking will salvage it, the raw power is simply not there.

    DOTA has evolved and with every patch it gets harder to run for potatoes.
    Plus, when TI compendium is live the game is poorly optimized for the new Immortals released.

    This is it, there are no other cfg tweaks.
    Code:
     Dota 2 cfg tweaking is very limited ever since Reborn, so also use tweaked launch options:
    
      1. Add Dota 2 launch options:           -autoconfig_level 0 -benchframes 1 -bench
         Run the game once - it will close itself shortly
      2. Remove above options, and add:
         for POTATO-GRADE/ONBOARD HW          -dx9 -nod3d9ex
         -nod3d9ex is incompatible with  Fullscreen mode (alt-tab issues) so switch to Borderless Window if used  (with -dx9 or -dx11)
      3. Enable "Use advanced settings" under Settings - Video and restart the game.
      4. You can gain shadow performance by lowering Shader Quality - only available by directly editing cfg\video.txt file with:
        "setting.shaderquality" "0"
    Download user.cfg, rename to autoexec.cfg (use show file extensions so it's not autoexec.cfg.txt), move to \steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota\cfg\
    Launch DOTA, open in-game Console ( hotkey \ - if it's not enabled you can add launch option: -console ) and enter: exec autoexec
    You should get a "[User cfg loaded]" response if the cfg file is named and placed correctly.

    You could also install No-Bling client-side mod - it will remove most of cosmetic particles and slightly improve fps.
