Hello all,

Is there a way of installing the game without having to download the 900+MB file each time? I have all the files on an external drive and want to install it on a school PC but can't seem to. Does anyone have a solution?

Not really. Almost any online game with regular patches you'll get this issue of needing to download a junkload of patches before being able to play =-/ If you think LoL is bad, try World of Warcraft >.<

o_O I never said LoL is bad, all I asked was if it was possible... judging by your response it isn't. I don't see why though seeing as the patches do download into the LoL directory. Couldn't there be a way for the game to detect you have most of the files already and go from there?

I think it does that already. However I'm fairly certain it also deletes older patches, so I don't think you can just copy-paste patches. Also it all depends on the version you're patching from, and to.

Your best bet would be:

- Download the LoL Installer files, and put them on a USB stick
- Update LoL on your main computer, and copy it over
- Install LoL on the other computer
- Copy your files over the top of them.

This would make them 'patched' and should work. Just copy-pasting won't work, it needs to be installed first.

First off, thanks for the fast response.

Secondly, by only copying the files across and running the game, I can get into the Client but not into games (I tested this on a premade 1v1 bot). Sorry if it sounds like I am repeating myself but, if I can get into the client without installing, is there no way around this other then completely downloading all the files again, keeping in mind that I have the most up to date version on my external?

You'll need to install the base installer first. This installs Adobe Air, registry files, etc, all required for LoL to run. Just copy-pasting doesn't work, there needs to be a base install of LoL in there first =-(
