Patch 4.9 and Custom Skins
Note: SIU means Skin Installer Ultimate, which we use to install skins on LOL (League of Legends)
Hello everyone. New patch = new worries (or not) 😉
Actually, I tested some map skins here today in version 4.9 and they are working fine. What I could observe is that the best way to deal with new patches is to uninstall all custom skins before patching the game, and installing a map skin after the patch is done.
Preferably, close the LOL launcher/pvp.net and open SIU, so it can read the new path. After it reads, you can then install a new skin, close SIU and launch LOL again. Although I only recommend this for when we have patches, but it’s a good practice to use SIU only with LOL closed (launcher/pvp.net).
Troubleshooting after a new patch:
If you have problems after a patch with custom skins, blue textures or any error, try to follow the steps below:
1. Uninstall all custom skins and test your game. If everything is correct, you can try to install a skin/map skin again.
2. If Step 1 didn’t work, try to (with all custom skins uninstalled) use the repair buttons from SIU.
3. If Step 2 also didn’t resolve your problems, try to repair your client using the game launcher (also with all custom skins uninstalled).
TL:DR => Uninstall all custom skins before updating the game. Remember to use SIU with LOL+Launcher closed.
