The team also dropped OpenGL support.
Valve has released an important update for the legendary game Dota 2. In addition to new game features, this update has made important system changes.
First, Valve finally dropped support for Dota on 32-bit systems. Now, to run the game, gamers need a 64-bit device and the same operating system. Secondly, support for OpenGL has been discontinued on Windows. OpenGL support on macOS and Linux will be discontinued in a separate update.
DirectX 9 has been declared deprecated, and players have been transferred to DirectX 11. While it is still possible to return to DirectX 9 using a temporary command line flag – deprecated_dx9, but it will be disabled in the coming weeks. In addition, the default audio system has been changed from XAudio to SDL.
