Wine + dota 2 +fps
I have been playing dota for some time now via wine. I haven't been able to figure out how to see the fps.

But the answer was to add -console to game parameters and type to the console "net_graph 1".

I get almost constat speed of 30fps.

I am very dissapointed about this. I thought it would be about double of the amount.

Did someone invite me to join dota2 group? I just got the message.

Bettr to use "cl_showfps 4" command.

You GPU is from AMD.

I have the same GPU and get about the same amount, except that models and such stuttering about every second. And yet, somehow Warcraft 3 gets about 5-10 more FPS, a game that's 8 years older.

Native Linux games run pretty well, though, so I'm desperately anticipating the release of Dota 2 on Linux. Chances are it's not going to be for many months, though...

Does DotA2 have and OpenGL mode yet? If not you're probably running in D3D mode. Wine has no native implementation of D3D, it has to convert the calls on the fly to OpenGL. In my experience this results in at least a 30% performance hit, though this will depend on your hardware.

You're also using an AMD graphics card. From what I've read on these forums, AMD's Linux driver (unlike Nvidia's,) is not on par with their Windows driver.

is windows 7 the software that it emulates or something? I'm confused, why would you use wine on windoze?

Yes. Steam also shows wine version.

I'd say that 30% is what remains, so it's a 70% performance hit actually. Or you have much better experience than others.

Maybe those numbers would have been lower if opengl was used instead of directx. At least the sys calls from the graphics stack don't have to be redirected.

I noticed that in my CCC there is a setting that was more quality than performance. Changed that, got some updates too to the system. Don't know if they affected. I get around double the fps than before. Same system. I have even decreased the cpu speed (less throttling?)

I have changed few fans on my case and added some more. Now 1st time I am able to run this computer full 4ghz with low voltage. I also DISABLED cpu saving modes on bios. I entered dota game and I got over 100fps...
Fibbles Jun 12, 2013 @ 9:02am 
So your problem was caused by a constantly overheating CPU? Are you sure the heat-sink is on correctly? You really shouldn't need dozens of case fans...
SUSEd Jun 12, 2013 @ 9:22am 
Dumb ask but cant you lower graphics settings? Advanced shadows (or what it called) is good performance killer. Try to disable it.

I don't know if I had overheating cpu. The stock speed of this cpu is 3400mhz x 4. I had the...what's name, forgot. Cpu savings on. It may effect the game play.

Try to switch CPU government to "performance".
