For the past couple of days, i've been thinking if DotA/DotA 2 is somewhat better played at higher fps just like in Counter-Strike  :O_O:  or the average fps is quite enough?


Share your thoughts and hope to hear some advice from the PRO's themselves = NaVi.DotA :D

Uhm, as far as I know, you can get maximum 30 frames per second, but I'm not sure.

Esat, you're wrong. You can change the max fps setting by entering the correct command, in this case fps_max *whatever number*
But you must disabe vertical sync and triple buffering.

I agree with dukthor, you can change frames in console. However, i recommend Borderless Window and your real resolution. If u have bad PC put all off except water in options and Textures to Low. That is for bad PC`s. If u have a good PC u can leave all ON and on MID/High. The advantage of Borderless Window is that you can Tab anytime you want without laggs or delays.

I wish I have a PC that really is for gaming,  :cry:  my PC right now can still handle Dota 2, but crappy graphics, my mouse is cheap, my keyboard is dying and my computer is 2 years old. But that doesn't matter gaming is still my passion :D.

Hello,

I do really believe a good frame rate is absolutely necessary at any time especially during intense team fights where you need to see every single spell and stuff. I recommend you to remove the antialiasing (it's what use the most power for the less render quality change). You should also try to set the launch option (right click on the game, properties, set launch options) "/high" (without the brackets). It will automatically launch dota in high priority on your CPU and GPU. I never tested it though, please tell me if it doesn't work I'll script a little .bat for you. I don't recommend you to run in window mode (you loose 5fps on a gt630m with that), run in fullscreen (the latest versions of source engine don't take long to reduce/remaximize).

The lock at 30fps don't change anything to you, if your computer goes under 30 for a moment, I will too if you set the limit higher. And even worth it will make wrong frame calculation -> if you run 30 frame for 0.5 seconds and 0 frame for another one, it will ram for a half second but it will display 30 fps. This works if you've setup dota at 60fps (it waits between each frames to get 60 at the end so 30 for a half second). But the problem is the computer must clean up the processor and GPU's memories, and if you've a too high frame rate, there will be more to clean than with a less good frame rate. Conclusion better have a 30 fps locked game than a 60 half lagging one. (Your eyes sees 24 to 26 fps depending of your condition)

Hope it helped !

EDIT : running the game in windowed mode make it run also slower (5 to 7 fps for me !) run it in fullscreen at the default resolution of your graphic card (you can google your GC to find it).

Thank you very much! But I tested the /high technic ; it doesn't work. I'm actually looking for another way to set the priority higher...

I found other ways to make everything go faster on 7:

Go at ...\Steam\steamapps\common\dota2 and right click on the dota2.exe (or whatever looks like this I don't have dota on the pc I'm writing with), go on properties. In the compatibility panel, desactivate the dektop composition and the visual themes. DO NOT activate anything else !
