Hello, I took a look at the League of Legends scripts, and it seems a bit wrong on a few points.

First, the wine version to use is 1.5.3-LeagueOfLegends. It includes the newest avoid deadlock patch and 3 other patches that make the store work (see the build request here: )

Second, it seems that corefonts and vcrun2008 aren't needed, the game works fine without them.

I made a tutorial here about how to install LoL here , it isn't that different from the script, maybe that will help you.

In fact, the script uses the good version, it's just a commentary you saw

A black square appear in the middle of my screen where the league of legends logo is supposed to be, and Wine just crashes.

i cant open the league of legends link, bcause firefox does not associate it with any program... and in the playonlinux install manu there is no league of legends entry (updated it 1min ago).

Help would be highly apreciated

WARNING: After the installer finishes, uncheck the Run League of Legends checkbox,
otherwise, a black box shows in place of the Logo, and the game wont start

^^ Worked for me!

Also, was announced today the Darius Patch, they say it will improve the framerate up to 50 %, even on lowest display settings.

Lets hope that improve performance on Linux gameplay.

TiP: If you have the setup you downloaded on Windows, just compress into a tar, and use setup from my computer

Keep getting ,,The server is currently busy." message. I've already checked the ie settings. Any advice?

About League of Legends:
I can install and update it fine but I can't login with any user with the testing script.
Today I tried some others ways to play LoL in linux (looking at the first comment) and i made it work but it crashes after starting or watching a game :(

So I suppose that it could be easy to fix the login problem

Installing and patching the game worked.

I closed the launcher.When I start the launcher again, it do the following :

The launcher hangs when trying to calculate the differences : step 1/2 calculating the differences....

I don't understand what to do. There are so many tutorials and none says the same thing. How to install LoL ?

Hello.. there is a problem went I tried it. Looks like the vcrun2005 installer call a error saying: "Acces denied". And, wen I try to run the game it crashes and say:

     "[06/16/12 17:19:11] - Running wine-1.5.3-LeagueOfLegends rads_user_kernel.exe run lol_launcher LoLLauncher.exe

I have tried to configure wine, adding the library with the wine configuration tool and it still got the error.

Sorry for the bad english.

After the latest patch (Darius), I can start games, etc, but it seems that in addition to the one color layer the main layer (environment, etc.) it now not displayed, leaving me blind. Can't see players, map, creeps. Does anyone have a fix? (And nothing to do with hardware, I was able to play at 60fps on Windows previously.) (And was able to play at 30fps on WINE). I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and am using the "testing" script. Has th epatch broken it? SO FRUSTRATED!!!

During installation I get the message:

Downloader crashed, likely because it opened more files than allowed. It will be restarted in the hope it completes its job.
