Sorry i meant to post this last week but have been fairly busy. There was a thread discussing the minimap ping being too hard to see. I agree. Looked around a bit and figured out how to change it

here is a preview of how i designed mine, of course if you know what a tga is then you know that you could change it up however you'd like.


Step 1
- Close LoL and then download the tga file below and place it in your \Riot Games\League of Legends\Game\DATA\Images\UI\ folder
http://bluechipps.com/PingMarker.tga

Step 2
- Navigate to and open this file... \Riot Games\League of Legends\Game\DATA\Menu\HUD\minimap.ini
- Scroll down to the end of minimap.ini and you will find a section entitled [Ping]. In that section there should be a line for OrderTexture=
- After OrderTexture= add the path to the new ping marker file. If you followed step 1 correctly then your new line should look like this


Step 3
- profit

Hope this helps those who needed it, please feel free to improve on my modification and post it here. Ask if you have any questions. If i have time later ill post a short guide on how to make a TGA that will display properly in LoL via photoshop. If not, someone else probably can too.

oh also, I have not touched the "ChaosTexture" line found directly below "OrderTexture" yet, but only because i havent needed to. OrderTexture seems to effect both sides and all heroes. Feel free to experiment though!

Interesting find! I wonder if Riot would be ok with that...

With this find, I suppose you opened much hope for some actual customization at UI level for the players
