I put this post on the normal forum by mistake, reposting here:

Description of Launcher Bug:
On launch, the League logo is displayed, then the launcher, first briefly as a white box, then permanently as a black box. The launcher buttons may be interacted with, but not seen.

Reproduction:
1. Launch the game client
2. Wait.
3. Stare at black void as it consumes yo...I mean while it patches.
4. Click roughly where you think the play button should be.

Note: Air Client Launches without hiccup.


Description of Game Client Bug:
Very similar to the launcher bug in visual appearance, ie a black screen of death.

  • - The game is running, as eventually I load in and can hear in game sounds.
  • - Tabbing in and out seems to display the screen as I should see it, without any HUD elements at all, save for the minimap but only a SINGLE frame of animation is displayed. This also works when loading in, displaying a static load percentage and all the champions present within the game.
  • - The game responds to input, pressing esc triggers the menu's "click", clicking to move generates champion response etc.



Reproduction
1. Create custom game
2. Select champion
3. Start game
4. Game client launches as black screen.

5. Command-Tab out and back in to see a single frame displayed.

Things get weirder when in windowed mode:

Areas of the screen where there are objects outside of the game are the only areas refreshed seemingly.

System specifications:
Late 2011 Macbook Pro running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard
2.4 GHz i5 dual core
4 GB RAM
Onboard Intel HD3000 with 384MB video RAM

Attempted fixes:
-reinstallation
-running programs as root user
-reset SMC

I've uploaded the potentially relevant logs here as well.

This is a known issue with the Intel HD 3000 card that we are working on.

Thank you! I was actually worried that it might be a last malicious artifact of my backup whoopsie wherein I backed up a nonjournaled drive to a journaled one, restored from journaled and had all sorts of wonderfully horrific issues with the old iLoL.
