Dota 2 Shader disabled?
It's been a while since I used this, but when I open it up again today, I can't seem to load the Dota 2 shader, the option has been greyed out, and when I try to manually load it, an unknown error occured. Can anyone help out?

Do you use SD on a Mac by any chance ?

Some shaders are unavailable on low specs Mac computers. However it seems since the Mavericks update, some of those shaders are also unavailable on Mac that should support them, we are investigating the issue.

No, I'm using it on Windows 7 64bit. It worked before, but I think since the upgrade to 3.7 it stopped working.

Could you post your exact specs please ?

Bought SD 4 today and the Dota2_Hero shader is also greyed out for me. I tried to load it manually, but it's clearly not working properly here. I'm running Windows 7 x64, i7 proc, 16gb ram, AMD Radeon HD7970 gpu. Not the end of the world atm, but would really like to give it a try. Please advise.

I'm just now realizing I have the same issue. I tried loading dota2_hero.glslfx manually as well from ...Substance Designer\resources\view3d\shaders folder but with no luck either. I've tried all 3 rendering engines (SSE2, DX9, DX10).

My SD4 is running on a notebook w/ Windows 7 64x, i5-2520M, 8gb RAM, Radeon HD6470M.

Hi, I lost my shader Dota 2 Hero, substance version 4.6. Tech spec of the computer i5 2500k, 8GB RAM. GTX770 2GB VRAM. Windows 8.1. Please somebody explain to me what happened ?!

The shader requires 3 files to work i think. I just had and fixed the same issue when upgrading from 4 to 5. Make sure you copy all 3 files for the shader into C:\Program Files\allegorithmic\Substance Designer\5\resources\view3d\shaders . I had the greyed out menu option when I only copied the glslfx. You need to copy the folder named dota2_hero which contains fs.gfsl and vs.gfsl as well into the shaders folder
