I have unilateral hearing loss (i.e. my left ear doesn't work) so I didn't realize until I recently started using headphones that LoL's sound is directional; sound from the left speaker and the right is all the same to me. But with the headphones on, I can only actually hear 1/2 of the sounds the game makes, and I'm, audio-confirmation wise, blind to stuff that happens on one half of the screen.

Kind of like in real life, I guess, but it's awfully inconvenient in terms of gameplay.

I would like it if you could turn off the stereo nature of LoL's sound effects, so that all sounds are equally loud on both speakers.

Agreed. The directional audio in LoL is absurdly poor - if the viewpoint is one pixel over from the sound orgin, it's played through that speaker only. Reducing the volume based on distance is all that the game needs.

I just came here to request the same thing (mono sound) for the same reason (hearing loss). I've tried the whole configuring-mono-through-windows thing, but it doesn't seem to work. Also gave mono headphones a shot (bought these online), but that didn't do the trick either.

Implementing a mono feature would be a huge service to your gimp-eared players, Riot!

Bump. Started playing with headphones more recently and it's hindering my gameplay.

Bumping dead thread because I really need this. My headset has one headphone. It's like the ones from a call center.
