ImageJoin Andrei "swaMp" Pintica as he shares his tips for creating the ideal setup for having the best performance while playing Dota 2.

In this article, I’m going to teach you how to tweak your Dota 2. This is for if you have a slow computer, or you simply wish to increase your gaming performance to go pro. To activate your console, open the Steam Library, right click on Dota 2, then we select Properties, Set Launch Options, then copy and paste the following:

-console -noforcemaccel -noforcemparms -noforcemspd -novid -high

The first command is to have the console activated on “`”, while the next commands remove the acceleration of the mouse and the -novid command is to remove some video effects from some heroes and the -high command gives a high priority for Dota 2 for the computer resources.

I hate it when I take damage from somebody because I see a white line from the health bar and after it disappears. Some of the people are saying that this have been implemented to see much better when somebody attacks you. You can remove that writing those commands:

dota_health_hurt_decay_time_max” “0″
dota_health_hurt_decay_time_min” “0″
dota_health_hurt_delay” “0″
dota_pain_decay” “0″
dota_pain_factor” “0″
dota_pain_fade_rate” “0″
dota_pain_multiplier” “0″

To see heroes in better perspective on the minimap, we have a simple command. I’m playing with a thousand, to see better when the heroes are making a gank.

dota_minimap_hero_size 1000

From what I know, if now is the default right-click, you can attack allied units below 50% HP, but in case you do not ever go, it's good to know this command.

dota_force_right_click_attack 1

If you want to see the lives without dashes, just like in DotA, type the following:

dota_hud_healthbars 1

Because you most write, you are losing time and the easy way is to bind your keyboard.

bind "F5" "say_team missTOP"
bind "F6" "say_team missMID"
bind "F7" "say_team missBOT"
bind "F8" "say_team RE"

All this can be put in a config to not write them every time to gain some time.

All this can be put in a config to not write them every time. Copy the cfg folder in \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ dota 2 beta \ dota \ cfg file, a file type. "Cfg" and put a copy elsewhere. Rename the file (without changing its extension) in gigi say. Enter it using notepad (right click, open with notepad) and delete it. Write the commands that you want each line (row), and save.
Copy dota2.cfg file in \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ dota 2 beta \ dota \ cfg (from where you have taken. Cfg iniĊ£ail what you changed). Get into the game, open the console and type dota2.cfg

I hope that those tweaks helps you in-game. If you desire more suggestions, leave a comment.
