Making LoL for Mac Works Again After the Beta Closed

Nicholas Wong

It is very disappointing that the League of Legends for Mac is closed after 6 Sep.

Luckily, there is a way to make the game working again temporary. Technically, as the game is a transplant from Windows with the emulator tool Wine, the whole thing is just running a Windows program in Mac environment. Therefore it is possible to put the files of LoL in Windows back to Mac to trick the server that I am using Windows. Of course, please take your own risk to do the following steps. =]

Step 1: Download the Windows version of LoLLauncher.exe here.

Step 2: Replace the LoLLauncher.exe with the downloaded one under
/Applications/League of Legends.app/Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/rads/projects/lol_launcher/releases/0.0.0.33/deploy/

Step 3: Relaunch the LoL and now you are able to update your game! Hope this fix would last longer! =]
