Now if you're like me; you like to fool around with the League of Legends game and client to make it a truly pleasurable experience. Which means, I change a lot of things: Graphics, Sound Effects, Menus, Skins on Heroes, etc. This allows me to enjoy the game a lot more, making it more like the game -I- want it to be.

Since the developers of League of Legends left several of their files open for very easy editing, I don't see why this should be a problem. But it is in the eyes of the patcher. If you change anything, it throws a big wrench into the clockwork and it will cause errors. So instead of just backing up one or two files you decide to change -- you may want to consider the following:

1. Make a backup of the entire League of Legends folder found inside the Riot file. I do this so I don't have to redownload and reinstall everything when the patcher refuses to go through smoothly. Since I edit to many files, I can't keep track of them all.

2. Keep a record and backup files of the edited files you want to replace and switch out after each patch. I keep a nice file which allows me to just drag & drop old settings into currently set up folders. This doesn't hinder the game after a patch is complete.

So if you're having patch problems, see if following these tips can make your life easier.
