Hey guys,

Many of you may have made some small tweaks and edits to your League of Legends installation files to make it so your Heath Bar will appear yellow (myself included!) to easier distinguish your champion when playing. With the most recent patch, we have changed how Health Bars are displayed, and it will normally display as yellow when Color-Blind mode is enabled. Unfortunately, this has caused those with yellow health bars previously to have their bars completely glitched (will not display level, odd bars will appear under health, etc, etc).

Fortunately, there is an easy fix that should resolve this issue for you! Simply navigate to the following location of your League of Legends installation after closing out of League of Legends (if it is currently open):

C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\solutions\lol_game_client_sln\release s\ (or latest release version)\deploy\DATA\menu\hud

In this location, a file was added by you originally to change the color of the Health Bar. It is called "GeneralCharacterData_Legacy.ini". Make sure that you completely delete this file. Once done, re-launch League of Legends.

If you are still experiencing this issue after deleting this file, make sure to perform a Repair from the Patcher Screen (Note: performing a repair will delete any Item Sets. Make sure that you back-them up before completing a repair!)

This should do the trick! I hope everyone enjoys all of the changes in the new Pre-season Patch! ^.^
