Garena Support for SIU
I have had many people ask for SIU to support the garena client.
It works a lot different than NA and EU, both on the install process, file detection process, and uninstallation, sorry it took so long to do.
I Believe that I have made SIU v4.16+ support Garena, but my ability to test is limited.
If you use the Garena client, or know someone who does, please test out some skins and let me know if they work!
If they do work, please do me a favor and let other people know, it has been so long that I have lost contact with my garena players.

Garena Installation should work the same as normal, but here is a quick run down of some parts which might trip you up.
- Download and install dot net 3.5, if you have not yet. Download it here.
- Download SIU from https://sites.google.com/site/siuupdates/
- Click the game client button on the bottom left of SIU’s window
- Download a skin from Here or leaguecraft
- Add it to siu by drag and drop
- Press the add to Database button
- In the second tab, check box it, and press install.
- To uninstall, check box it and press uninstall
Keep in mind, SIU will handle figuring out what directory everything is supposed to go automatically, so that is taken care of.
However, if a skin is made for the NA client, it may not be compatible with Garena until they update.
4.16 and 4.17 had some bugs. Please restart SIU to update to 4.18 or above, then try again.
To do a proper test, first make sure that lol is not crashing, or get a fresh installation.
once you have done that, press the “re-read lol files” button in siu, http://i.imgur.com/iwcnMsK.png let it complete.
after that, either check your skin and press “fix skin”, or download a new skin
after that, try installing.
4.18 and above seems to have skins working so far!
Tested in 4.18 and working:
Try to have a backup handy, this is still testing, always use custom games.
I have had a few reports of certain skins crashing still, if you have the time to narrow it down to a single file that causes the crash, that would be very helpful!
Special Thanks to Yurixy for letting me use this blog, the other forums are always down nowadays.
