League of Legends
This page outlines how to get League of Legends working on your arch system.
- 1 Setup
- 2 Install
- 3 Running the Game
Set up a chroot
The way to do this is outlined in Install bundled 32-bit system in Arch64. An even easier method is to install AUR from the AUR [which follows the steps outlined in the wiki article above].
Install your graphics drivers
You will need to install your graphics drivers inside the chroot. You will need hardware acceleration drivers as well.
Install in your chroot
Create wine PREFIX
# schroot -p winecfg
to create a default 32-bit prefix at $HOME/.wine and take the chance to verify that it is set on Windows XP
Install the following in chroot
Set up your base system
Installand in your base system.
Install the following windows components using winetricks from your base system:
# winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 wininet winhttp corefonts
Install the following
- : This is required for running the installer
Download the LoL installer
You can download the installer from the league of legends website:
Run the Installer
To run the install, run the following command:
# GC_DONT_GC=1 wine $directory/LeagueofLegends.exe
where $directory is the directory where the installer is located. This is run from your base system. Make sure lib32-libldap is installed in your base system as well or the downloader will not run.
Patch the game
Follow the included instructions and apply the texture patch. This will prevent the game from crashing when you open the in-game store.
Running the Game
Create a bash script with the following command:
#!/bin/sh cd "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/Riot Games/League of Legends/RADS/system/" schroot -p -- wine "rads_user_kernel.exe" run lol_launcher $(ls ../projects/lol_launcher/releases/) LoLLauncher.exe
Run it, and you should be good to go. Enjoy!
