LoL was running fine for me and I decided to turn everything to the highest settings(bad idea). Now I get a black screen whenever I start am match, indicating that my system is not fir to run everything on high graphics. The only problem is that i cant figure out any way to turn my graphics settings back down. I can't change them in game because my screen is black and I can't find a way to change them in the pregame menu or in the PvP.net menu. Currently I am fixing the problem by re-downloading the installer and re-installing the game all together. I am wondering if there is a much easier way to fix this problem, such as changing the settings from the game folder or something. The reason I still want to know is because if I am trying to find the optimal video settings for my system, I don't want to have to re-install the game if my screen goes black again.

Find the LoL install should be:
LoL\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\CFG

edit the Game.cfg file to change settings back

Not sure if this helps or not, but I know you can change settings here.

To clarify this a bit, the physical directory (by default) is

C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\CFG\Game.CFG

What you need to do is go into this directory, open up Game.CFG with notepad (right click, open with, then select notepad), then edit under

[General]

Width = xxx
Height = xxx

Try a setting like 800 for Width and 600 for Height.

Hope this works!!

These are my default settings but I have a kind of powerful PC, and a widescreen LCD.

[General]
LanguageLocaleRegion=en_US
Width=1440
Height=900
Colors=32
Windowed=0
WaitForVerticalSync=1
[Sound]
DefaultMusicVolume=200.0000
