Not really sure if this is the right forum for this kind of suggestion, but I just wanted to get this idea out there.

Is there anyway this game could get a colorblind mode? I mean just like some sort of optional setting to change some colors around for individual users. I'm mildly colorblind, but the biggest issues come from trying to tell the difference between purple and blue, so the minions wind up all looking the same to me in this game.

It's not a huge deal, but sometimes when I play a ranged character and I mean to hang back and snipe I'll click on a friendly minion and walk straight into the fray before I realized my mistake.

I was thinking it'd be nice to have a switch so you can change the minions to a different set of colors, just for your own display, like blue and red or black and white. I sometimes have trouble between red and green in other HUDs, and I do know that red/green color blindness is one of the chief types of colorblindness so I wouldn't suggest the other color scheme be red and green.

Maybe there could be a few different options for colors to pick between, I don't know, but either way blue and purple are too similar for me to tell the difference, especially in the heat of battle.

Thank you for your consideration.

Same here. I'm colorblind too. Can't tell the difference between purple and blue.

There are some custom minion skins which can be found from this list - https://www.leagueoflegends.com/boar...stom+skin+list.

Specifically this thread is exactly what you're looking for methinks - http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...ead.php?t=6543.

Beyond that, I would hope something like this will be implemented eventually, no telling where it'd fall priority wise though.

A high-contrast mode is very needed, especially when 8% of males are colorblind in one way or another.

The most common type is Red/Green, where all colors show up as either Blue or a hue of yellow/beige.

not sure why people are linking happynihil's thread... use the guide i made.. it has all the information from the forums. happynihil did some great work but that isnt enough to fix the problems, i guarantee it. you absolutely have to change game.cfg. or the minimap is useless
