Do you want to play Dota 2 in a low-spec system? Yes, you can! But first, you need to set it up video settings in your Steam local file.
To start with, I have 2GB RAM and AMD  Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor, which initially a low-spec and an old one.

By default, this is the visual configuration by Steam Dota 2. At first, the visual performance is quite lag with my above-mentioned specs.
"config"
{
"VendorID" "4318"
"DeviceID" "1601"
"setting.fullscreen" "0"
"setting.nowindowborder" "1"
"setting.aspectratiomode" "-1"
"setting.mat_vsync" "1"
"setting.mat_monitorgamma" "2.200000"
"setting.mat_queue_mode" "-1"
"setting.cpu_level" "0"
"setting.mem_level" "2"
"setting.gpu_mem_level" "1"
"setting.defaultres" "1280"
"setting.defaultresheight" "1024"
"setting.gpu_level" "2"
"setting.version" "1"
"setting.mat_viewportscale" "1.0000"
"setting.subversion" "1"
"setting.version_advanced_video" "1"
"setting.r_shadow_half_update_rate" "0"
"setting.cl_particle_fallback_base" "0"
"setting.cl_particle_fallback_multiplier" "0"
"setting.cl_phys_maxticks" "3"
"setting.dota_cheap_water" "0"
"setting.r_deferred_height_fog" "1"
"setting.r_deferred_simple_light" "1"
"setting.r_ssao" "1"
"setting.cl_globallight_shadow_mode" "2"
"setting.r_screenspace_aa" "1"
"setting.r_deferred_additive_pass" "1"
"setting.dota_portrait_animate" "1"
"setting.r_deferred_specular_bloom" "1"
"setting.r_deferred_specular" "1"
"setting.dota_ambient_creatures" "1"
"setting.dota_ambient_creatures_pop" "0"
"setting.mat_picmip" "1"
"setting.r_rootlod" "0"
}

I did a simple tweak to enhance my visual and overall performance by eliminating those unnecessary visual effects in Dota 2.

These changes include a graphics setting:
  • You need to set model and texture details down
  • Off Particles, shadows, and cloth physics
  • Set OFF anisotropic filtering and Anti-aliasing
This is the setting I used with my PC:
"config"
{
"VendorID" "4318"
"DeviceID" "4170"
"setting.fullscreen" "0"
"setting.nowindowborder" "1"
"setting.aspectratiomode" "1"
"setting.mat_vsync" "0"
"setting.mat_monitorgamma" "2.200000"
"setting.mat_queue_mode" "-1"
"setting.cpu_level" "0"
"setting.mem_level" "2"
"setting.defaultres" "1280"
"setting.defaultresheight" "720"
"setting.gpu_level" "3"
"setting.version" "1"
"setting.mindxlevel" "92"
"setting.maxdxlevel" "100"
"setting.dxlevel" "100"
"setting.mat_viewportscale" "1.000000"
"setting.subversion" "1"
"setting.version_advanced_video" "1"
"setting.r_shadow_half_update_rate" "0"
"setting.cl_particle_fallback_base" "0"
"setting.cl_particle_fallback_multiplier" "0"
"setting.cl_phys_maxticks" "3"
"setting.dota_cheap_water" "1"
"setting.r_deferred_height_fog" "0"
"setting.r_deferred_simple_light" "0"
"setting.r_ssao" "0"
"setting.cl_globallight_shadow_mode" "0"
"setting.r_screenspace_aa" "0"
"setting.r_deferred_additive_pass" "0"
"setting.dota_portrait_animate" "0"
"setting.r_deferred_specular_bloom" "0"
"setting.r_deferred_specular" "0"
"setting.dota_ambient_creatures" "0"
"setting.dota_ambient_creatures_pop" "0"
"setting.mat_picmip" "2"
"setting.gpu_mem_level" "2"
"setting.mat_triplebuffered" "0"
}

In my new setting, I set a resolution from 1280x1024 to 1280x720. Then, I set those shadows, fogs, and other details to 0 (off).

To change the Video.txt setting, you need to locate it.

Hope you will enjoy the setting ;)


Really prioritize PERFORMANCE over quality!
