hello everyone, I just bought a new computer yesterday and I played league a few games and the all of a sudden when I start another game I get the Shader Model 2.0 DirectX error right before the loading screen. I know that my drivers are up to date and my graphics card supports the game... Is this a bug? or is their anything I can do? or do I need to take the computer back where I got it and have it looked at.. please help! I have also tried the window changes in the config file.

Hey I Am Vital!

Thank you for bringing this issue to the Help and Support Forum! Experiencing a Shader Model 2.0 Error can be incredibly vague and very difficult to diagnose when encountering it for the first time. Typically, this issue is caused due to out of date drivers for your Graphics Card. However, if your Drivers are completely up to date, then the issue may lie elsewhere. In order to investigate this issue further, would you mind attaching your latest DxDiag and R3d Log here?

- Dxdiag information: http://support.leagueoflegends.com/e...stic-or-dxdiag

- Please send your most recent r3d log where you experienced the problem (You'll notice that the file name starts with the date/time and ends with r3dlog.txt): http://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/20076987

I look forward to hearing back from you!

Move to the folder:
League of Legends/Config/
Delete the file 'game.cfg' and 'input.txt'
Relaunch the game, try to spectate someone.
IF that still doesn't work, move to these two folders:
League of Legends/RADS/projects/lol_game_client and lol_game_client_en_us
Delete both of them.
Then run the repair option in the launcher, by clicking the cogwheel in the upper right hand corner.

I am vital,

Click your start menu button.
Type 'dxdiag' into the field and hit enter.
When the new screen pops up, run 'x64 version' if that button or similar wording is on the bottom.
Then, hit the 'save all information' button and remember where you saved it.
Reply to this thread with the 'go advanced button' and upload the .txt file here please.

Sorry to bump an old thread but it appears some people are still having problems with this, there is a method I figured out that doesn't require downloading anything or editing the registry. It appears to be League of Legends defaulting to an unsupported resolution randomly. I made this short video explaining how to do it and it is a very simple fix which I hope helps you or any others that are experiencing the error.

I just started having this problem. I did just change my monitor, but, I had been playing for a bit and had just played a game and then my immediate next game it did this... I've tried multiple recommended fixes and nothing has worked except deleting the game.cfg file every time I play a game before the game starts.....
