What is FPS in Dota 2?

Game setup

FPS number of frames per second on the monitor screen. The higher this indicator, the better and more pleasant is the picture on the monitor. When this amount is not high enough some frames are removed to maintain the overall speed of the gameplay. In the people it is called «friezes». PC gaming on a low FPS is not only very uncomfortable, but also almost impossible. The player is simply knocked out and is not able to keep up with the rest of the team.

How to find out your FPS in the game? In the updated Reborn game client it is enough to go to Settings, select the Network section and turn on the display of connection data (make active Display Network Information button). After that, the data will be displayed during the game next to the character icons.

If you feel that the FPS in Dota 2 is not enough, you can use the already proven tips to increase the FPS (in addition to changing the hardware in the computer):

  • Add the line (without quotes) «-high» in the launch options of the game (the line of launch options is in the Game Properties). This command is safe. «-high» displays the priority of the game.
  • In the graphics settings of the game, turn off anti-aliasing, v-sync and other additional effects such as glow and high water quality. In extreme cases, you can reduce the quality of processing. Turn on the game display mode «In a borderless window». In this case, the picture may become more «blurred», but the FPS will increase noticeably. (We advise you not to touch the shaders, they do not affect the FPS in any way, but they have a noticeable effect on the appearance of the characters).
  • Launch the game with as few programs as possible running simultaneously.
  • Go to the settings of your own video card and set everything to increase performance.

CPU boosters and game boosters often have from little to no effect. So don’t expect them to improve the situation with FPS.
