**updated with Gnar Login on 8/15/14** *Also if leaguecraft is down, just go to the mediafire links and see if there are updates. Sometimes I can't tell you about them but they are uploaded to mediafire*

So, you like the login videos that Riot keeps changing? You want to set them as your wallpaper on your desktop, but alas! Windows 7 does not allow videos as desktop backgrounds! Sad Face right? Wrong! TazMcFly is here to save the day and turn that frown upside down.

Vista used to allow animated wallpapers through a program called DreamScene. But Microsoft decided to revoke support for this program. Thus, it is not allowed in Windows 7. But there are lovely programmers out there who have made it possible to activate DreamScene in Windows 7.

The first step to awesomeness is to go here:

http://dreamscene.org/

and download the Dreamscene activator. Instructions are on the site, and in the faq so figure it out yourself. ;)

*note* Windows XP and Vista users can check out their tools section here http://dreamscene.org/download.php to find help on activating this on their computers**

Next, you'll need to download the videos from me. To download all available files go here:

With Sound: http://www.mediafire.../?s6rc2c326cwxa

Without Sound: http://www.mediafire.../?9k2529rwat3wo

Without Sound HD: http://www.mediafire.../?77zy9yyu84a2x

*Lol Cinematic Now Available!!*

Like the cool cinematic Riot made? Want it on your desktop? It's here! Be warned, it's a 250 mb file: http://ppl.ug/zLRFuSlQAjU/



If you want to only preview a certain video, go to the spoilers. I had to remove the previews because my dropbox account was suspended for too many views I guess.

Once you have the zip on your computer and unzipped, you can right-click on the WMV you want as your desktop and choose "Set as Desktop Background".

Voila! An animated LoL video for use as your desktop background.

When you restart or turn on your computer, you will notice that the font on your desktop files has gone clear. Simply right-click and choose preferences, then set your desktop background to solid black. Go back to the video you want and re-set it as your background again.

** edit, this happens on and off, sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't. But it's a simple fix***

****Now With Sound!!!!*****

Preview all of the riot videos with the songs attached here: Also removed.

[Note that the videos had to be lengthened in order to make them long enough for the song. The combination pushes the file size up as well.] When you get the video, (if you have already enabled dreamscene with the activator) simply right click it and choose set as desktop background. You won't hear sound yet cause it's muted by default. To enable it, right click on the speaker icon at the bottom right of your windows. Open the volume mixer. If the video is playing on your desktop, you will see the dreamscene option in the sound mixer. Click on the muted speaker icon at the bottom, and it will unmute dreamescene. You can control the volume for it here too.

The sound pauses when you open a browser window, and restarts when you go back to your desktop. Windows explorer does not cause it to pause I've found. Enjoy the riot videos with sound!!

HD versions of the original Files are available. They are without sound, the ones with sound ended up being over 100 MB (one was 270 MB), and some wouldn't convert at all. Therefore I only provide HD versions of the videos without sound.

Whenever I see someone have porn as their wallpaper I think less of them as a person.

Um I am not sure. It is scaled funny on mine too. I heard this was because riot is not HD or something, but I'm not sure if that's true.

Back when I was 12 (4 years ago OMG what a kid) I found pleasure in setting meatspin as the background for every computer in school.

I never got caught and the noise was huge.

Wow... awosme, i tough about having this the moment i saw the Dominion Log in screen, too bad you dont have that one for Dowload... i found one little problem with this tough, but maybe there is a solution i dont know about.

i have the Ashe one, and now the name of the files on the desktop are barely readable, instead of the letter being white, they turner to blue, like the Background. dunno if there is a way around this.

will you be updating? if no, i would apreciate some advice on where to search for some mroe, cuz i really want that animated Dominon log in screen xD

thanks tazmcfly for this post ;)

I said in the above post this was a known bug. I don't know why it happens, or how to permanently fix it. I detailed the temp fix in the original post. Unfortunately, you have to do it every time you turn on your computer or restart. If there is anyone else who can solve this problem that would be awesome, but nothing I have tried has worked.

I will be updating with a few more. The Dominion login is one that I am currently working on, and the guy who made the nidalee, karthus etc ones has updated a few more. So i'll put those in here as well. stay tuned. (at the end of the original post are the links to the original swf videos. They need to be converted to work on desktop, and that is what I am doing).

I'm having problems with the Dominion one. I updated with the Heimer one. Seems riot changed the way they do it somehow. It came out different, and is making conversion almost impossible. I'll keep working at it, but it might take a while for me to figure it out.

never had this problem. I have made numerous withdrawals and they all appear within 7 days. Have you withdrawn before? If not maybe your bank details are incorrect?

srsly. I keep checking the dominion login movie everytime there is an update, but no matter what it ends up the same. It's not looking good for being able to convert it.
