RAF Manager - Download: http://www.ItzWarty.com/RAF/
Source Code [for developers/programmers}: http://code.google.com/p/raf-manager/

I'd like more programmers to join the project.

How to use:
Note: I still recommend you back up your C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_game_client\filearchives folder
0) Close League of Legends completely.
1) Run RAFManager.exe after extracting all files in bin.zip into a folder.
2) Create a folder name "skins" anywhere you like, and download some skins off the internet. Drag these skins, or the folder containing them, into RAF Manager.
2a) It doesn't matter where the skins are located. You can even put them in a folder name "aargh", or have ezreal skins sitting in different folders. RAF Manager is smart.
3) Check the checkboxes next to your skins, so that RAFManager knows you want to install them.
4) Go to Project->Pack, click Yes to the dialog, and the skins will be installed.
4a) The first time you replace a skin, RAFManager will save the original skin, so that if you decide to uncheck "use", it can revert!
4b) The backups are saved in the /backup/ folder of the RAFManager directory, so don't delete that folder!
5) Close RAF Manager
6) Start League of Legends

How to uninstall skins:
1) Start RAF Manager
2) Open your previous project, or just create a new one and put your skins in.
3) Uncheck the checkboxes for the skins you want to uninstall
4) Pack

Release Notes
Version 1.2.0:
- Loading Dialog Introduced, since alphabetic sorting is now done to the RAF Viewing tree
- Reintroduction of the DUMP feature - Right click a node on the left archive view, then select DUMP
- You can now edit text files within RAF Manager - This includes .ini, .cfg, .txt, etc...
- The text viewer now allows you to save to disk, or save directly to the archive.
- About box updated to more accurately reflect the 3rd party programs used in RAF Manager
- Fixed a bug where loading .rmproj wouldn't update checkbox values
- Now, when you drag a .rmproj file into the changes view (the right top box thing), RAF Manager
- will realize that you're trying to load the file
- Packing now consistently reports whether or not it has finished.


League of Legends crashes after running RAF Manager and changing files:
File handles weren't released properly by RAF Manager. Simply close RAF Manager, and if that fails, restart your computer. It will work after.

Current Bugs, Solutions, Upcoming features (dash marks todo, ^ marks in development, o marks done)
- CLEAN RAF Archive feature
- RAF Manager doesn't release file handles at the moment! You can't go in game until RAF Manager is closed!
- Friday Feature isn't implemented yet! In the future, if you go to "About" and it's Friday, the YouTube video will play!
SUGGEST FEATURES BY REPLYING!

Iclancy, a hotfix has been released.

I don't know if users with your issue will get to the point where the program will reach the Check For Updates function.

Just redownload the client. Those of you who have downloaded it already will get automatically updated

Thank you very much. I think it's as specific as it can get. :D

EDIT:
What do I do with the spell icons and particles that skins come with? Same process?

EDIT:
"Row of rafpath value '' and localPath value '' is incomplete'" What exactly does this mean? o-o

Same process, assuming the files are stored in the RAF Archives. =)

Do I have to use your dump and pack files first to use the RAF Manager?

Awesome work for your effort here! Posted Image

I have a few questions on where to place the zip files among one other question.
Will I have to remove your past exe (Dump and Pack) program?
Also, where exactly do I extract the ZIP files? Will it have to be in League of Legends files?

Feature suggestion! :D I noticed some custom skins came with the air folder that replaces other images. Maybe you can add an option for the air folder too. O: There's also other things like, UI mods, but i'm not sure if those work like these skins. I'll check it out. And the minimap changes which I think is just a image, maybe located in air..hmmmm.... That's all. c: I can probably help out, I usually have time on my hands. O:

RAFManager is intended to replace DUMP/PACK.
It has no dependencies on them, nor is it aware of their existence!

Will I have to remove your past exe (Dump and Pack) program?:
No!


Also, where exactly do I extract the ZIP files?
Will it have to be in League of Legends files?:

It doesn't matter where you install RAFManager, just don't delete the directory you decide to install it in, since backups are stored there too!

apparently this program or net framework 4.0 doesn't work with windows xp home edition. Is there another way i can install skins or can you make a program that would work with framework 3.5

For right now I am screwed if there is no other method.

Kinda stoping by to tell thank you, since you are the guy who made custom skinning happen again, even in LGG's installer, the method still looks a bit complex, but I guess it works out fine :)

Havent tested yet, will let you know if I get stumped down by any bugs.

EDIT : Already got a problem on launch, I tried to get my LOL folder in the directory but I get an error, is it possible that this happens because my path is as it follows?

C:\Users\Public\Games\League of Legends

And doenst have the "RIOT Games" tag?

Hi, the name is Garona, for any assistance PM me!
