Exclamation Dota 2 Video Settings


I can't select some options in the advanced tab of video settings, one of them being the texture quality, which would make a difference, I think. Does anyone know why? Or aren't the low-quality textures available to choose? It's very hard -almost impossible- to play with those FPS, (around 15-20 I think). My computer's specs are not SO bad, but not everyone has a good video card to play the game smoothly. I think it should be better optimized. Does anyone thinks the same or can help me?

Beta.

Yeah, it's harsh, but if you want to change the texture settings, you have to go through the console.

The command for it is mat_picmip. The lower the number, the higher the quality. To give you an example, high quality configurations on TF2 has mat_picmip set to -10.

Although, in Dota 2 the range is limited from 0 to 2.

before the bounty hunter update I was at 60 fps with all of them on high, now it's 30. your best bet would be level down your video settings (remove shadows, texture details etc..) I got 50-60 fps tops when I level them all down, I just tested it though, 30fps still looks good on my 16:9 1920x1280 reso.

... The game won't allow for that unless cheats are enabled.

Game optimizations is the last stage of development. So for now live with that.
