It's something I'd like to see done (including alternate modes for the less common blue-yellow color blindness conditions), but unfortunately it is hard to get prioritized.

In the meantime, take heart that your efforts have no gone unnoticed at Riot! You're getting my first red post, how does that feel?
Why doesn't Riot just release a 'colorblind patch' vs. having an in-game mode change? That way users can have the option of applying it or not and it would be less of a challenge. Or, has the reason that the champs/creeps can't permanently be blue/red been answered?

Anyways, hope the new changes get made soon...

I could not reply to your thread in the other boards so I will reply here. I am downloading the game as I type this, I plan to try and fix the colourblind patch so my friends will stop bugging me to play with them :3 I will let you know what happens.

No promises though!

If we were to support different appearances for color blind players we would not do it through a user downloaded patch (IMHO). The problem is this would make the option somewhat hidden from people who suffer from color blindness. Also, I suspect the development/art effort would not be too different between the two and a color blind mode would be be much easier to maintain and expand for multiple types of colorblindness.

Thnx for the support, but I am idling from the game until a solution come across.
It is silly to disallow having at least health bars being able to be modified by us, until you come up with a default client solution.
I have no problem to take much time to implement this, but until then, at least let us change the health bars. Make some folder that allows to alter only health bars, I don't know what else to say..

I wanted to voice my support here as well.

And while the color blind mod is awesome, all I really want is to change the minion colors and the enemy UI displays.

I'm not sure I understand why it'd be so hard to implement: just toggle alternate skins for the minions that aren't blue/purple, and toggle the health bars from being red/green to being something else (orange/cyan like COD for instance).

I appreciate Boourns giving the thread some credibility with a red post, but his answer of "Well, the higher ups say we can't do it," just makes me want to hear an explanation from them instead.
