Hello everybody, I'm having a problem with my video card and I can't play the game.
I used this patch: http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=611025 and it worked until I went in a game and says that I can't play because I don't have Shader Model 2.0...
I want to know if there is a patch to play without having this thing.

I highly doubt it. Shader 2.0 graphics cards are very very cheap these days. You should probably just upgrade your video card. If your PC was made in the last 6-7 years you should have a PCI express slot for your card. A GeForce 8400 card runs about $30 and that should be good enough to run league without much trouble.

no patch but if their was a game patch or you did a repair/reinstall the files are going to be in a diffirent folder. as of this time stamp you need to put those files in

X:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_launcher\releases\0.0.0.97\deploy

where X is your drive. What this patch does is translate the directX 9 shader calls into directX 8 calls it wont look as pretty and it may be a bit glitchy but it works.

how would i go about doing this? what files need to be put in the area you specified?
i just downloaded the game for the first time since i got this computer i use to play a while ago. but when i dounloaded it and ran lol i got the unsupported hardware "graphics card does not support pixel shader 2.0"

if you could post a reply with a walkthrough on what to do to fix this it would be much appreciative! until than it looks like imma be playing Guardians of Middle-Earth.
please and thank you(: Happy Ganking everyone!!
