Added new download.. a fix for lol players using Windows 8 that have graphical issues… I have graphical issues after matches where It won’t return to the game lobby so you can talk and honor each other.. the screen goes black.. but you can see the Windows Taskbar.. ALT TAB doesn’t seem to help too much as the window is trying to “stay on top”. ctrl-alt delete is jsut as hard to end the process as the window tries to stay on top.. and finally right clicking on the lol client on your taskbar and selecting “close” isn’t always there.. really random…

so what i did was program a little application that ends the proccess “LolClient”. I keep it pinned to my taskbar, so after matches i just hit it and it closes.. not sure when windows will fix these problems.. i tried updating my drivers, no luck..

I'm working on a windows application, instead of just the command prompt version.. so you click.. it closes... then, LoL will automatically restart after 'x' seconds. I don't know if anyone else is using it, but it's all I have at the moment to get by until Windows or LoL fixes it. I'll just post it to my site like the last one. Let me know if anyone finds a better fix! Thanks!
