Like the ever-evolving Kha'Zix, League of Legends is always adding new Champions, graphic updates, and particle effects. Those additions usually use the latest available software that Graphics Card and Operating System manufacturers have available at the time.Because of this, you may experience the symptoms described below if you software is not up to date.

COMMON SYMPTOMS

  • The game crashes to desktop
  • The screen is black when the game is launched
  • The game freezes completely without crashing to desktop
  • The client crashes after the game ends
  • The client crashes after champion select
  • The client crashes during champion loading screen

BUG SPLAT

Bugsplat is the bug reporting system used by League of Legends to inform us of emerging issues. Bugsplat issues are typically caused by either your PC's hardware (the physical parts that make up your PC) or the graphic settings you have applied within League of Legends.

Note: After attempting each solution below, please create a custom game (with bots or by yourself) to test the new settings.

UPDATE GRAPHICS CARD DRIVERS

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUR VIDEO DRIVERS UP TO DATE?

Why Cant I Download League Of Legends On My Macbook Air 2

Video card drivers (software that interfaces with your graphics card) often include vital bug fixes and/or optimizations. Your card is generally shipped with a driver pre-packaged, but this driver is usually out of date by the time it reaches your computer. One of the most important steps you can perform when installing a new video card or using a new computer is installing the most up-to-date driver.
The update process will vary depending on the specific video card you have, but many players will find that they likely own a card from one of three major product lines: NVIDIA, AMD or Intel. Since these are the most common types of graphics cards, we will cover the basic update process for each.

HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR GRAPHIC CARDS?

  • Press [Windows Key] + R (this will open up a 'Run' window).
  • Type dxdiag and then hit Enter.
  • Select the Display tab.
  • Note the name and manufacturer of your card in the top left corner of the window.

Most common graphics card manufacturers have a solution that scans your computer and updates drivers automatically. We recommend you to manually download the drivers at the sites below:
AMD
NVIDIA
Intel

UPDATE DIRECTX

UPDATING YOUR DIRECTX

DirectX is a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) developed by Microsoft. This API allows various applications to interact with hardware on your computer without knowing ahead of time what that hardware is. Many applications use DirectX, however it is most commonly used in running games, because they tend to be hardware intensive.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME?

If you are using an outdated version of DirectX, League of Legends is going to have problems interacting with your hardware (your graphics card, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc.). This can result in a variety of errors, ranging from driver crashes, keyboard or mouse inputs failing to register, or sound cutting out.

UPDATE LINK

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/179113
Please keep in mind that the highest version of DirectX that you can get depends on your version of Windows, as described in the above Microsoft article.

Note: Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft as of April 8, 2014. That means that if you cannot get the appropriate version of DirectX from the above link, you will need to upgrade your Operating System. You can find more info here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d-support-help

UPDATE YOUR VERSION OF WINDOWS

MAKE SURE YOUR WINDOWS IS FULLY UPDATED

Windows updates often address issues within the Operating System and DirectX, which may lead to application crashes. You can find the relevant instructions from Microsoft here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...indows-updates

Note: Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft as of April 8, 2014. That means you will not be able to get automatic updates for this version of Windows and will need to upgrade your Operating System. You can find more info here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...d-support-help

INSTALL .NET FRAMEWORK 3.5

MANUALLY INSTALL .NET FRAMEWORK 3.5:

.NET Framework is a software library developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. One of the dependencies of League of Legends is .Net Framework 3.5. Even if you have 4.0, you may need to also have the 3.5 version installed to properly play League of Legends. You can download and install it here:
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=22

PERFORM A CLEAN BOOT ON WINDOWS

CLEAN BOOT GUIDE

Sometimes, other applications, especially software that uses an overlay (i.e. Skype, Teamspeak, Steam), can cause League of Legends to crash. You can exit or disable those applications and see if this resolves the issue with crashing by trying out a custom game in League of Legends.
Alternatively, if you want to be 100% sure that no other application is interfering with League of Legends, you should try performing a clean boot in Windows. To do so, please follow the instructions below:

DISABLING ALL NON-ESSENTIAL PROCESSES:

  • Press [Windows Key] + R
  • Type msconfig into the text bar at the bottom of the menu
  • Click on the Services tab
  • Check Hide all Microsoft services so you don't end up accidentally disabling a key process
  • Click the Disable All button
  • Click on the Startup tab
  • Click on the Disable All button
  • Click on the Apply button
  • Click on the OK button
  • Restart your computer

Note: For performing a clean boot on Windows 8 and 8.1 please see the following Microsoft article:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

RESET YOUR GRAPHICS CARD SOFTWARE

MAKE SURE YOUR GRAPHICS CARD SOFTWARE ISN'T INTERFERING WITH LEAGUE OF LEGENDS

NVIDIA comes with the NVIDIA Control Panel and AMD comes with the Catalyst Control Center. Both of these programs allow users to set up graphics profiles that can override application settings and sometimes interfere with League of Legends as a result. Resetting the software to default values usually gives control of graphics back to the applications. Here's how to do it:

NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL

  • Right-click on your desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel.
  • Select Manage 3D Settings.
  • Click on Restore Defaults.

CATALYST CONTROL PANEL

  • Right-click on your desktop and select Catalyst Control Center (also called VISION center).
  • Select Preferences.
  • Click on Restore Factory Defaults.

CHANGE YOUR GAME SETTINGS

ADJUSTING VIDEO SETTINGS

Minimizing the video options will reduce the amount of effects on screen and could help you avoid crashing. Playing around with these settings will help you find a sweet spot between performance and quality. As a starting point, try setting each option to its lowest value. You can access them in-game by pressing ESC and selectingVIDEO.

  • Settings: Custom
  • Resolution: Match desktop resolution
  • Character Quality: Very Low
  • Environment Quality: Very Low
  • Shadows: No Shadow
  • Effects Quality: Very Low
  • Frame Rate Cap: 60 FPS
  • Wait for Vertical Sync: Unchecked
  • Anti-Aliasing: Unchecked

You can also change some of the interface options to reduce the amount of stress on your hardware. To access these options press ESC in-game and select INTERFACE.

ADJUSTING INTERFACE OPTIONS

  • Uncheck Enable HUD animations
  • Uncheck Show Target Frame on attack
  • Uncheck Enable line missile display
  • Uncheck Show Attack Range

DISABLE THE DEBUG VERSION OF DIRECTX

WHAT IS THE DIRECT X DEBUG VERSION?

Why

The Debug version of DirectX is used by developers to solve and troubleshoot a wide variety of issues with games that use DirectX. It is usually not intended for casual use, but some players might turn on this setting on and then forget to turn it off.
If you want to learn more about DirectX Debug and Development, you can read Microsoft's own article here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=vs.85).aspx

HOW DOES IT AFFECT LEAGUE OF LEGENDS?

Here are common examples of how a debug version of DirectX adversely affects League of Legends:

  • The entire map will be covered in Fog of War
  • You will not see any animations (i.e. brush movement)

HOW DO I DISABLE THE DEBUG VERSION?

  • Press the Windows key and type DirectX Control Panel.
  • Open the DirectX Control Panel (Be sure not to select the 64-Bit one)
  • Click on the Direct3D 9 Tab
  • Make sure you select 'Use Retail Version of Direct3D 9'
  • Click Apply and then click Ok to close the Window.

MISSING D3DX9_39.DLL FILE

The file is missing from your computer. This can be due to the corrupted file when you are patching or downloading the game by turning on Anti-Virus or Firewall.
Example of error message

HOW DO I SOLVE THIS?

Option 1:

  • Download the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from this LINK
  • Run the Installer
  • Restart your League Client and try again

Option 2:

  • Check if you are using 32-bit or 64-bit Operating System
  • Download the selected file

OWN LOGITECH SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE

The game crashes when champion loading screen is supposed to show up, after champion select. The client would disappear and there was not reconnect button.

To further claify, if you are running Logitech gaming software, use this fix. If you experience crashing after champion select but are not running Logitech gaming software, try the fix but don't delete the dlls. Just rename them. If it didn't help you, just change their names back. That will ensure that nothing will be broken for you.

  • Go to C:Program Files (x86)GarenaLoLGameDataAppsLoLGameConfig
  • Open the 'game.cfg' with NotePad and ensure you are running is as Administrator Mode
  • Ctrl + F and type in [General]
  • Paste the word in the Notepad: LogitechSupport=0
  • Save the Note Pad
  • Go to C:Program Files (x86)GarenaLoLGameDataAppsLoLGame
  • Find for LogitechGKey.dll and LogitechLed.dl
  • Copy the two files and save them at Desktop (just in case you need to reuse it)
  • Delete or RENAME the two files

MODIFIED COMPONENTS IN THE GAME

Why Cant I Download League Of Legends On My Macbook Air Pro

We do not encourage players to modify any feature in game. If you modify any files in the game before, there might be some corrupted or missing files in your game folder.

CLEAN REINSTALLATION

In this article, we'll look at common problems and 5 fixes for these MacBook and MacBook Pro battery problems.

Why is my Mac battery draining so fast?

There can be a number of reasons. For example, different browsers consume different amounts of battery power.

In some cases, a recent upgrade to a new macOS can be the cause and therefore a temporary problem. It either stops doing this in its own time, or a new macOS patch/upgrade is sent through and once downloaded the problem goes away. It is known to happen around the time of new releases and is an issue many Mac owners anticipate.

However, in other cases, the issue is less widespread and more localized. We cover five of the most common problems and fixes for Mac users, in particular MacBook owners who have suffered from a fast draining battery.

5 solutions for Mac battery problems

1. Check and change Battery Settings

In the top menu, where the battery appears, it’s always useful to switch usage to a statistics setting, so that you can clearly see how fast it's draining.

If you click on the battery, it will show which apps are using the most amount of power.

  1. From here, click on Open Energy Saver Preferences
  2. Within this you’ve got the option to put the hard disks to sleep and dim the display when a Mac is not connected to power.

2. Switch on Energy Saver

Why Can't I Download League Of Legends On Mac

Always useful when trying to conserve battery power on any device, and it could be a lifesaver if you happen to be out without a power cord or plug.

  1. From the  Apple menu;
  2. Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver
  3. Now click on the Battery tab
  4. A slider should be on this screen: Switch Power Nap off, while sliding the scale along to ensure the screen goes dark after a reasonable amount of time when not being used, which should reduce battery drainage.

3. Find out what is using energy

When investigating a fast draining battery, it’s always useful to know what is using energy in the first place. To find out, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Applications;
  2. Click on Utilities > Activity Monitor;
  3. Activity Monitor will show what is taking up CPU and GPU;
  4. Giving you the ability to close anything that is clearly taking up too much battery power.

4. Identify background apps

Behind the scenes, most Macs can run dozens of apps without us realizing it. Some of these could be running because we forgot about them. Others open during the startup sequence. And others, without us knowing it, could be malware or ransomware, or other viruses, either designed to steal data or steal processing power to mine cryptocurrency or even run remote DDoS attacks.

Now, clearly that sort of thing isn’t ideal and you won’t want apps running that drain power, steal data, or that use your Mac for something you aren't even aware. To solve these potential battery draining problems, we recommend taking the following steps:

  1. Download CleanMyMac X (for free, here)
  2. Click on Uninstaller
  3. It will run a scan of every app on your system: Either click to rest or safely uninstall everything you don't need or aren't aware of.

Also, click the Optimization tab in CleanMyMac. You’ll find the tool called Launch Agents.

It displays tiny background applications otherwise non visible to a user. This very often gets exploited by advertising scripts — a sure way to drain your battery power.

As you can see, these items can be easily switched off using the Disable button.

5. Adjust screen brightness

The brightest lightbulbs consume more energy, same is true for your screen's lighting. In your Preferences, look up Displays settings and do a couple of tune-ups there. Make sure to tick 'Automatically adjust brightness' checkbox.

6. Clean up your Mac

Macs battery benefits from various forms of cleaning. Why? Because the cluttered hard drive uses more CPU resources. The more strain on CPU, the more it affects and eventually wears off your battery. There are dozens of pretty good tools to remove hidden junk from Mac but my personal favorite is CleanMyMac X. It's so enjoyable to use even for such a trivial operation as deleting junk files.

  1. Download CleanMyMac X — here 's a link to a free edition
  2. Click on the System Junk tab

As you can see, I was able to remove 18.9 GB worth of useless files: caches, broken downloads, localizations, etc.

Sit back and know that with a tidy Mac, with it free from all of the clutter of years of use — and a monitoring system in place to look after it — your battery should be operating at optimum levels again.
