Hi,

I've been playing league for a long time now but since last week the client crashes when I want to go in loading screen. I then get the message of the direct x shader model 2.0 error. I tried a lot fixes but nothing works. Everything should be up to date. I also added a dxdiag of my pc.

So please help me,

AAARRN

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.

AAARRN,

Your graphics drivers are almost 10 months out of date. You need to update them.
Go to your control panel.
Click "Settings."
On the upper left hand corner, should be a link to "Device Manager."
Open up the tab of "Display Adapters" by left clicking it.
Right click 'Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000' and hit 'Update Driver Software...'
Click the "Automatically Search" button.
Once it's done, restart your computer and run a test game on proving grounds by yourself, just to be safe.

Ironic, a copy paste of my words in a different thread worked. I think I'll add that to the Shader 2.0 list I'm making.
