League of Legends on Mac . League of Legends (aka LoL) (video) is an amazing DotA style RTS game. It’s got to be my favorite game currently. Problem is, I’m a Mac gamer, and this game runs on Windows. However, there’s a Mac client out there and it works just fine, just that there seems to be no way to install it. It’s one of the best games on Mac, just impossible to play. Until now. I spent such a long time looking for a way to get the Mac client, and I found it, so I want to share the knowledge with the rest of the community so they don’t have to spend an entire week searching the Internet like I did. Anyways, I’ll put the instructions in an easy to follow, numbered order. Just follow them and You’ll have LoL working on your Mac. It’s a free game, so even if you don’t play but you’re a Mac gamer, it’s a must have and there’s no reason not to install it . It’s the most amazing free game I've ever played, I highly recommend you should check it out even if you're not a fan of the game style. As for system requirements, I'm not sure about it. It runs more than perfectly fine on my MacBook Pro running 10.6.6 First step is to make an account if you don’t already have one. Just go to the account creation page and fill in the required fields. This takes less then a minute. Once you have an account, you can download and install the disk image found here. Mount the disk image and run the installer. I believe this installs the Pando Media Booster (required to play the game?) and the LoL Mac client installer. Run the file you just installed. This will install the actual client and Adobe Air (also required to play?) People I’ve helped so far have had problems with this step if they don’t install Adobe Air or if they install the game under Macintosh HD/Users/yourname/Applications instead of Macintosh HD/Applications Now that the file’s downloaded, you need to run it. IIRC, some generic windows will open and then close, and then the game won’t work. Next step is the hardest part of the installation. You need to download and unzip this file. You then need to take the 3 items in the unzipped folder and copy them. Then right click on the League of Legends file under applications and select “Show Package Contents”. Navigate to Contents/Resources/Transgaming/c_drive/rads/projects/lol_launcher /releases/0.0.0.15 /Deploy There will be one file there. Delete it, and paste the 3 files you copied earlier. EDIT: NEW STEP Riot games officially closed down the Mac client a few days ago. However, there's still a way to get it to work. You need to download this file. Then right click on League of Legends and select "show package contents". Navigate to: Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/rads/projects/lol_launcher/releases/0.0.0.33/deploy Place the file there and say "yes" to replace the old one. Now league should run just fine. Launch the client, and then it will install the latest patches. It usually gets stuck near the end and you have to force quit it and then launch again. That’s it! You’re ready to play! I hope you enjoy the game on Mac as much as I do Some other things that will help you enjoy the Mac client to the fullest extent : It doesn’t currently seem to support USB headphones . You can work around this by using ones that use the headphone jack or just using your computer’s regular speakers. When you’re done with a window, it minimizes instead of closing. This isn’t a big deal, just don’t mess around with it and nothing bad will happen. If you do something out of the ordinary (such as let your computer go to sleep while the game is running) It occasionally won’t quit properly so next time you try to launch it, it won’t run. To fix this you need to either log out and log back in, or restart the computer. The game will be back to normal as soon as you do this, so you can go back to having fun. If there's any problems your having with this, let me know. I'll be more than happy to help anyone out if I ever get back to checking the replies. Let me know what you though of my instructions. This is my first post so I'm looking forward to any feedback. Enjoy!
