Hey Jesse,

Nah I haven't altered any files manually only what the game has done during patching installation etc. I wonder whether there was some corruption during the update this morning.

I was really looking forward to this update.

Q1. Will reinstalling the game using the setup file in the installer folder mean I have to download the entire game again? I am also assuming I will need to uninstall?

Q2. Like I said I can't replace the edit files with the older ones because I haven't edited them. Can you please let me know if you can which ones have been edited and maybe upload the older ones here that I can try?

Thanks

Micky.

When you reinstall using setup.exe you will only have to download any updates made between when you downloaded the setup file and today. Probably 3 updates at most. You should use CCleaner after uninstalling, if possible:

I can't upload any files atm because I'm reinstalling the game to see if I can reproduce the issues people are experiencing (not yours specifically) without editing any files.

Hey man,

Looks like you were right. My friend actually borrowed my laptop and was playing lol. I remembered that he was colourblind so I have reverted the changes that he has made and it has fixed the issue.

Reinstall did the trick here too. I first tried to repair old installation but it didn't work. Then I uninstalled, rebooted and istalled to new drive.
