    Blurry Visuals in a 2012 MacBook air

    Hey there, first and foremost thank you for OSX support!

    Now going into feedback: even at native resolution 1440X900 (I think..) with all the settings crank up, the visuals of the game look blurry. It is weird because you can see the text - UI elements pixel clear, and yet the game itself looks blurry, is like if were using correction glasses just for the UI. This doesn't seems to be the case in bootcamp (win7).

    Thanks.

    Have you tried cranking "Render Quality" all the way up? Sometimes it can default to a lower setting in the test client.

    Could you please post a screenshot? If you can post a comparison shot of the Windows 7 client on the same machine, that would be great.

    I don't have Windows bootcamped on my mac, but I do have it on my Linux machine. Linux is exhibiting the same slightly smaller/blurry viewport as well, and I took screenshots to compare.

    Windows


    Linux


    Open them in seperate tabs and swap between them to see the lower quality on the Linux/Mac build.

    I also feel that the OS X version is blurrier than the Windows version.

    Sorry for the jpeg artifacts.

    I just looked at the detail on the flowers in the Radiant fountain and they are not the same. It appears that there is more detail on the Windows version of the flowers than on the OS X version.



    My hardware is here.
    Hopefully, that helps track down the issue.

    I pushed a change that should make the game less blurry across the board and should now be live on the main Dota2 depot on OSX. Can you confirm it works for you?
