    LoL Champion Custom Skin

    I am sure many of you here would have already known about installing custom champion skin, but nonetheless I would still provide some details about it. Basically custom champion skins are skins that are created not by the Riot Game community and instead by the other LoL players around the globe. These skins, once installed will affect you and only you. Other players will still see you with the default skin.

    A guide to installing these skins can be found here:

    http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...ad.php?t=77729

    and

    A guide to installing spell and particles can be found here:

    http://forum.leaguecraft.com/index.p...lls-particles/

    These guides are meant for the NA and EU servers of LoL, so in our case, our game path directory would be \Garena Messenger\Apps\LoL\.... so on.

    Similarly, even though some of the spells may look different after installing these skin, they are purely visual and the effects are the same.

    Here are some examples of really really cool skins which I have found. All these skins are gotten from http://leaguecraft.com/skins and I take no credit in the creation of these skins. Also, this is only a small portion which I have filtered out from the thousands of custom skins found on Leaguecraft. My opinion may be different from yours.

    More will be added if I find other good ones.

    Once again, this list is not exhaustive. Please do check out the full list of custom skins at the Leaguecraft website.

    WORD OF CAUTION: I did not try out most of the skins here, so I would not know if they are bugged or not. If you experience some problems while using the skin, please do NOT post your problems here. Instead go to the specific link whereby you downloaded the skin and read the comments down below, you will have better luck there. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone who wants to use these skin to try them out in a custom single player game first before using them in a normal game in case some problems arises and your game crash.

    On a sidenote, if anyone of you here have awesome custom skins to share, you can also post your skins here.

    To those using custom skins:
    Please create a back up as patch notes will ruin the game files such that you have to reinstall.

    Erm, I am not too sure about that, no offence. I mean the part about creating back-up. Cause when you install custom skin, at least in my case, what happens is that you are adding files and not replacing/removing them. So, when a new patch comes up, just deleting the files you added would be fine I guess?

    PS: I am still a beginner at this, so may have misinterpreted your meaning... Anyways please explain more about the part regarding creating a back up. *Peace*

    I've had files corrupted due to lousily made skins, such as the particles files.
    I'd say just copy and paste your lol folder to another location.
    It's best to just play it safe as some people get their patching corrupted and end up getting leaving marks because they dc during the game.

    Please do consider the particle files, image files and sound files.
    The only skins that doesn't go corrupted are the unpopular skins because no efforts are made and the skins are just a "paste over".

    I'd rather buy the skin rather than downloading custom ones. >.<

    You don't need a backup to patch. i normally just delete the whole "character" file, during patch. it will be inserted into the game file by itself.
    Frankly speaking, my steps are redundant. It just overwrites the data during patching, or the skin just stops working. Well.. that's for my case
