Raise your performance with the Low Definition Summoner Rift
Hello everyone. Today I bring you two versions of the Low Definition Summoner Rift. I see a lot of people having problems with FPS/Performance with the new map launched by Riot, therefore I made a way to make your performance and FPS better in game.
Please note that the results vary greatly depending on your computer and graphic cards, there are a lot of factors involved. Each person will gain a different number in FPS/Performance, you need to test to see how will be your experience. The difference can be big or insignificant depending on your specs.
Remember to always use all the settings on VERY LOW. After all, you are trying to boost your performance and that goes against the quality of what you see in the map.
Also, turn off anti-aliasing in the video options and you can try smaller resolutions in full screen as well, depending on your monitor/specs.
Comparison screenshots of the quality of the map in versions:
- First column = no changes/mods. (very low settings)
- Second column = Low Definition SR. (textures are 1/4 size of the original map)
- Third Column = Extreme Low Definition SR. (textures are 1/16 size of the original map)
In most cases, smaller textures can make a small but significant boost in your performance.
This mod uses the DXT1 technology (in all texture files) to provide smaller size and more performance to your game.
Choose the Low Definition SR if you want to get a small boost at the cost of the quality.
Choose the Extreme Low Definition SR if you want to try a higher boost at cost of very bad quality (the map becomes very ugly).
This mod only contains texture files (dds) and it was tested on Wooxy, but it should work with SIU or other skin installers as well, since it’s a very simple modification.
It’s highly recommended that you backup your League of Legends folder if you are not using Wooxy as the installer.
