The main issue is that I can't even begin to follow the steps of the tutorials because my folder of LoL doesn't look the same way as described.
The directory mentioned "C:\Program Files\Riot Games\League of Legends\Game\DATA\Characters\" on my PC is "F:\Games(Installed)\League of Legends\"
In that folder I don't have the folders Game, Data, Characters or folders like that. I only have two folders LOGS and RADS. Therefor I can't make any changes i.e I can't follow the steps presented by the tutorial creators. I saw that this was not illegal or punishable so I wanted to try out some custom skins.
I searched a lot and found multiple threads(tutorials), but all suggest similar ways to alter the game files. On my PC that is not allowed.
I tried using SIU, but when I try to update, like it says in the tutorial, it doesn't let me and shows the two messages, shown below.
I do have to note that my game isn't installed, but copy-pasted on my computer from a USB and that I have a Windows XP operating system.
I do not think that the installation of the game is making problems because the game works perfectly fine. In fact, it has been installed on another computer, but copied to mine.
I would be very grateful if someone helps me. Thank you in advance
For the moment, don't worry about updating. Just download the most recent version from: https://sites.google...ite/siuupdates/
Unzip it to say, your desktop and run it from there. In the beginning it should throw an error saying it can't find your LoL install. Press OK and click on the "Options" menu, then the "Change Game Client Location" option. Browse to you "lol.launcher.exe", select it, and press OK. A message will pop up that says the program data is out of date, press "Yes". Let the progress bar finish and you should be all set.
From there follow the directions at the beginning of this thread.
For general installation of skin files, you have to be careful which tutorial you follow. Some are out of date and do not represent Riot's new file system. I suggest this one: http://forum.leaguec...p-updated-1312/
