Dota 2 improvement

Postby Klenz » Wed Jan 29, 2014 5:36 am

Hi, iam new in linux(dual boot with windows). Recently i just installed petra cinnamon 64 bit. My VGA: [AMD/ATI]:Park[Mobility Radeon HD 5430/5450/5370] and i used xserver-xord-video-ati (version 1:7.20-0ubuntu10)

First i was installing dota2 from steam. I didn't work out and give error " the GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc, or the GL_EXT_texture_compression_dxt1 + GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt3 + GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt5 OpenGL extensions. Please install S3TC texture support."
Solution : "http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=151530&p=790131&hilit=dota+2%2C+s3tc+texture+support#p790131"

After that i could get into dota2. In windows i could play dota2 without any lagging or packet loses, however it do not work well with linux. So, could someone tell me which is wrong with my setting? Is there some driver i need to fix this? I really want to use linux as my primary OS, please dun ask me to just play from windows. Thanks before

I'm guessing it might be an AMD driver issue. Try an older or newer driver. Then try DOTA2 again.

It's definately the drivers. I switched to the latest drivers and it was fine. I've since got a Nvidia card though now, and that's running games no problems.

Awesome! Yeah, I have Nvidia for all of my computers. Mint 16 runs games really well on em. I'll never go to AMD.
