DOTA 2 will not start after new patch
« on: December 10, 2011, 03:35:35 AM »

I can't seem to play DOTA 2 anymore after the new patch. When I launch the game, a black bar will appear to the top left corner and I can hear the Valve introduction sound but nothing else works.

My PC:

Intel i3 2100
4gb ram
MSI 6850 1GB

I am pretty sure it is not my PC' fault.

EDIT: Figured it out. After the new patch, the game changes my resolution that my monitor does not support. To fix this, I changed the resolution in the video file that is located in Steam/Steamapps/common/dota2beta/dota/cfg and located the file called video. I opened it up with notepad/wordpad and changed the resolution back to normal and made the file read-only so it wouldn't change the resolution again.
