How to use the MinConfig settings

  • This WILL replace your current in-game settings
    What is the MinConfig Settings file? Following these steps will just take your game settings down to the bare minimum configuration. This is helpful when your current game settings are too high for your computer to currently load into a game.
  • Download the MinConfig.zip file, which you can find at the bottom of this page.
  • Unzip the file.
  • Log into your League of Legends account.
  • Go to your "Config" folder (default location: C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config)
  • Highlight, drag, and drop the following files into your "Config" folder: game.cfg and PersistedSettings.json
  • If a "Copy File" window pops up, click "Copy and Replace" for both conflicts. If not, skip to the next step.
  • Start a Custom Game by yourself. You should have the minimum configuration settings.

Mac System Requirements

Known issue: MacOS 10.15

Players installing League of Legends on MacOS 10.15 for the first time are experiencing critical issues, while players who installed League on MacOS 10.14 and later upgraded to 10.15 are not. Unfortunately, if you're having problems on MacOS 10.15, at this time the only known fix is to roll back your OS to version 10.14 and reinstall. We apologize for the inconvenience.
