Moving Dota Technology Forward

Following up on our previous announcement about the future of Dota’s technology, with this update we have:

  • Removed support for native XAudio support — the default audio system is now SDL.
  • Deprecated DirectX 9 support — as the penultimate step toward removing support for this render system, users who have been using DirectX 9 have been switched to DirectX 11. To facilitate reporting problems with DirectX 11, we’ve added a temporary command-line flag -deprecated_dx9 (which itself will be removed in the coming weeks).
  • Removed support for OpenGL on Windows. The optional DLC that previously contained the data required for OpenGL on Windows has been emptied and will be removed soon.
  • Removed support for Dota on 32-bit systems.
