Skin Installer Ultimate Update

Alright, so Skin Installer Ultimate has been updated so now you can use custom models, meaning that my mods can now be used once again.
Dargon is another skin installer that you can use, but the update still hasn't been released yet.

Download link for SIU:
http://siu-lgg.googlecode.com/files/SIU%204.02-Lite.zip

Note: My League of Draven mod is not up to date. I may update it over my winter break. The last time it was updated was when Lucian was released.
That means, that Jinx, VU Sivir, VU Garen, and VU Nasus are not yet Dravenized.
I would recommend deleting the Sivir, Garen, and Nasus folders when you download my mod before installing it.

My to-do list:
Dravenize:
- Jinx
- Sivir
- Garen
- Nasus
- Regular wards
- Trinkets
- Yasuo when he gets released

Wow that's a lot of stuffs I need to do lol.

League of Draven Music - Get Dravinxed

I did this for a few reasons:
- I wanted to and I had some free time.
- It felt appropriate since Draven (A Twist of Draven) is what helped me start my channel.
- I couldn't work on mods still since there's still not update on it.
- Draaaaaaaven.

So, check out this video if you want ;)

Another blog post

I haven't written a post in a while now, so I guess I'll just post what's up.

- Still not sure when the mods will be fixed, but I hope it's not too long after Jinx is released since I'd like to Dravenize her. Speaking on which, I wonder how many people are still going to use my mod once the modding issues are fixed. Bleh, whatever; I'm going to keep updating it whenever possible.
- I've been mainly working on school stuffs and in my spare time, either playing League of Legends or working on my own projects.
- I'm also trying to keep my Youtube channel going. Things are going at a steady pace or whatever.
- Back to my "own projects," and Youtube, I downloaded this program and I'm playing around with it, so I'm going to be uploading stuffs once I get a decent amount of things finished with it (it's a music Studio Program, by the way).

To end this post, here's a game of League of Legends that I played where I managed to complete the Secondary Quest between Kha'Zix and Rengar: "The Hunt is On."
We were already winning and ahead of them, so it was easy for me to win this quest. The Kha'Zix then said something that made me LOL hard.

Modding Update!!! (And a side of Breaking Bad before the season Finale!)

So, related to the topic of mods causing crashes:

This is probably old news to other modders out there, but at Patch 3.11 of League of Legends, Riot changed how game data was read (or something along those lines), so the problem doesn't lie within the mods itself, but rather the software that is used to install the mods (Dargon or SIU)

The creator of Dargon Manager is currently working on a fix for this; I heard from a fellow modder than there was an closed beta for it that involved other modders, and one of them that I know managed to get mods working again.

I'm still not sure what's going on (probably have to update Dargon, but I don't think it's available for Public yet), but please keep updated on my blog for more news, or check out the Dargon website here:
http://www.itzwarty.com/

As always, thank you for checking out this blog, and if there are those who have been checking this blog for a while, thank you =)

On another note, I've been working on other stuff in my spare time, and I made this Breaking Bad Parody MAD video (surprisingly, it didn't take me long to make this) I'm just glad I finished this before the season finale:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn0XknGTfmc

I'm thinking of making similar parodies for League of Legends related stuffs just for the hell of it, but that depends lol.

Random Update

So I haven't been modding in a while. Not sure when I'll start again. It is mostly because, I'm busy with college. Not only that, but there seems to be issues with modding in general involving in-game models being invisible.
I tried looking into this, but as I said, I'm currently preoccupied with school work.
I may work on other stuffs that aren't so time consuming/fickle in my spare time, but I'm not expecting much modding content any time soon.

Issues regarding busplats in Patch 3.11 (result of modding)

Copy and pasted:
3.11 Bugsplat / Disconnect Problems
Continuing on the 3.11 problem train, several users are also experiencing frequent disconnect and bug splat problems related to the use of third party add ons.

Here's the Riot NOC announcement:
"Summoners!
Following the 3.11 patch, we've seen an increased level of disconnections and Bugsplats. We’re fully aware of this and we now have a solution for resolving a majority of the issues.

Update: Some third-party add-ons are causing technical difficulties and bugsplats(game crashes) with patch 3.11, the latest League of Legends release. If you find you're experiencing more bugsplats than usual, try uninstalling your addons and running a repair from the settings dropdown of your League of Legends patcher.  
To run the repair function:
Run League of Legends.
Click on the button with a gear near the top of the window.
Click "Repair"
Wait. The repair function can take anywhere from 5 minutes to over 30 depending on the number of corrupt files it has to repair.

If after this you still experience the issues, please attach the following logs to your replies, as it will assist us in figuring out what is occurring: 
Launcher/Patcher - Launcher and Kernel Logs: These logs are useful for: Stuck Patches, Server Unavailable and Unspecified Launcher Errors 
The patcher is responsible for keeping your installation of League of Legends up to date with the newest champion, skins and features. Problems that require patcher logs occur when you first boot up the game and before you hit the "Play" button. There are two log files that will contain any error messages you receive while at this window: rads_lol_launcher.log,rads_user_kernel.log 
In-game RADS Logs:

In-Game r3d Logs:
These logs are useful for: In-Game Errors, Graphical Problems and Frame Rate Issues
A game log is created each time you play a game. It contains vital information about your loading process and will log any errors that occur during the course of the game. 
These logs are essential for troubleshooting in situations where you have problems in-game. 
Each file appears like this: 2011-05-24_21-11-32_r3dlog.txt

IMPORTANT NOTE
For people that get stuck in the League of Legends logo, and / or at 99% , 33%.. When patching the client: Do not worry about it and leave it open. Both during the logo and when stuck at those % the game is still patching in the background. If you leave it eventually it will be finished and move forward. 
Thanks for your patience, we’re sorry to those running into this problem and it would help for you to let us know if the steps above helped fix things here in this thread."

Slowing things down a bit...

Hey, just going to let you guys know that custom skin creation may be slowing down. I plan on modelling the skins myself now, which does take some time.
Before, I've simply been using other people's models and editing them to make them work with the Champion's skeleton. But now, I'm going to start from scratch in terms of modelling.

As I said before, I will be uploading a somewhat more variety of videos on Youtube. Maybe that will fill the void?

Thanks for reading and checking out this blog =)

Megaman Ezreal and Incoming League of Draven Update

Someone requested a Megaman Ezreal Custom Skin, so I'm making one (it's almost finished). I used Capcom's model, however, so I didn't make the model or texture myself this time.

Also, with the release of the Lucian Champion Spotlight, I'm assuming that he will be released, which means that I will need to Dravenize him in my next update for my League of Draven Mod. Included in the mod update included Dravenized wards and Poros.

Beside creating custom skins for League of Legends, I will be uploading more variety of stuffs on my Youtube channel. Keep a watch out on my channel for things, I guess.

Not much else I really want to post here today...

Captain Falcon custom skin for Vi (with custom voice overs!)

August 15, 2013
My Captain Falcon custom skin for Vi is finished! (for now)
Unfortunately, the game client folder (the folder containing the Captain Falcon model and particle effects) was too large to upload into Leaguecraft, so I uploaded all the files to Mediafire:

Where is Lucian??? 【Update: my next custom skin: Captain Falcon for Vi with VOICE OVERS】

August 14, 2013
Okay, so still not much update on the League of Draven Mod. The up-to-date version of the mod is still the original download link (scroll down to my first blog post for the link and FAQs and stuffs).

Riot has stated that it will still be quite a while before Lucian is released, which means that... I'm not going to be doing much with my mod.
Unless there's a persistent issue regarding it (feel free to message me on any of my social networking accounts for help if you have issues), I won't be working on updating my mod yet, since there really isn't much to Dravenize besides Lucian and Poros.

However, this gives me time to work on some more custom skins. My next custom skin that I'm working on will actually be fully modelled and textured by me, rather than just a remake of someone else's work.

I'm sure this custom skin will be quite loved (assuming I actually can do it lol)

【Update】
Okay, so I kept advancing in my project, and ended up getting some neat stuffs done on it. The mod will have red fire-ish particle effects (as best as I could have done them), Captain Falcon loading screen and HUD icons, and Captain Falcon audio files!
Here is a preview of the Captain Falcon Custom Skin I'm working on for Vi.
(Click on the image to view it in full size)

Check out my Youtube Channel, as I soon will be uploading a video show casing the skin.

Custom Skins and random stuffs

August 11, 2013

I plan on making some more custom skins, like the Hatsune Miku Katarina and the Youmu Konpaku Master Yi skin in the future, but it may be a while before I can actually make one.
I have ideas floating around for new custom skin ideas, but I'm currently busy with stuffs.

Also, I haven't really done much on my League of Draven Mod since all I have left to do now is Lucian and Poros (I finished the wards sometime ago).

I've been busy with this random 3D animation I've been working on since the beginning of summer, so I wanted to keep working on it as I've kinda put it off for a long time in order to work on my League of Draven Mod.

To add to this, I'm also trying to work on my rankings in League of Legends lol.

As for my Youtube channel, I'm probably going to upload whatever on it; most likely League stuffs and some of my 3D animations (although since 3D animations take a while, I won't be uploading stuffs like that as often)

Hatsune Miku Katarina Rework (and reposting for Youmu Konpaku Master Yi Custom Skin)

A few people actually asked me to do this, and so I reworked the Hatsune custom skin that no longer works. Check it out here:

In other news, I Dravenized the wards for my League of Draven mod. I'm also now working on a rather random animation (not related to league, but still rather entertaining to a point)

I need to work on improving it =/

Just writing another blog/trying to figure out how this blogger works.

August 4, 2013
Some stuff I fixed regarding the previous release:
1) Dravenized Heimerdinger's Turrets.
2) I found a way to actually export a Jayce remodel, so now Jayce will be properly Dravenized.

Currently, I'm working on a custom skin for Master Yi. Actually, I'm just reworking it:
http://leaguecraft.com/skins/5501-youmu-model-texture.xhtml

This skin doesn't work properly any more due to the Yi rework, but I'm going to fix that, as well as animating the skirt so the legs don't go through.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
I have finished the Youmu Konpaku Custom Skin for Master Yi
(UPDATE: YOUMU CUSTOM SKIN NOW INCLUDES THE RUNNING ANIMATION AND FLYING ANIMATIONS FOR THOSE WHO WANT AN OPTION ON WHICH ONE TO INSTALL)

Update: I'm reworking the Miku Hatsune Katarina skin. Apparently, no one has done it yet, and since I'm a Miku fan (not a big fan, but still a fan), I thought it'd be fun to do it.
So, my to-do list so far:
- Dravenize wards
- Dravenize Lucian
- Rework Miku Hatsune Skin

Blogger. What? (Download link to the original LoD Mod)



Thanks to RageStarStudios for his help: http://www.youtube.com/user/RageStarStudio


July 31, 2013
Patch 3.10
First version of the mod is released.
Download here: http://tinyurl.com/pqpul8y

Modder’s notes:
- I want to emphasize that this is to use at your own risk. But I want to inform everyone on a particular issue I've encountered while testing out my mod:
If a new League patch comes out, it would be safe to close Dargon from the system tray before patching. I can't say much about SIU since I don't use it often.
Also, back up the folder "lol_game_client" in case something breaks while patching. Just close Dargon Manager (exit it from the system tray), place the back up folder back into original directory and then patch.
After patching, back up the folder again, then open up Dargon Manager again.


C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_game­­_client

- This is just the first version of the mod. I still plan on continuing it since I have contributors (VAs and Photoshoppers) helping me with this. I haven’t included their work yet in my mod, but I promised to release it after 3.10/Reworked Master Yi.
- As long as people still enjoy this mod and I continue to get support (Gangplank raise morale), I’ll keep updating this mod.
- It may be safer to uninstall the mod when a patch is released (and close Dargon from the system tray)


To-do:
- Dravenize Lucian when he is released.
- Dravenize the wards.
- Add splash arts/loading screens
- Include Champion select voice actors

Known issues:
- Heimer's turrets are not Dravenized even though I did them. perhaps a problem with the directories?
- It may just be me, but Howling Abyss doesn't work for me when I have the mod on.

Troubleshooting: Q: there has been a mistake with DargonD A: Try going into the Dargon folder and run the Dargon.exe program. Sometimes, this won't work, so try reinstalling Dargon or restarting your computer. Also, sometimes, this problem will go away on its own. Dargon is still kinda sketchy (I didn't make this program) Try asking the creator of Dargon for help if everything fails. Q: Form is incomplete while installing Dargon. What do I do? A: 8 seconds into the video. The form is incomplete. On the second box (the middle one), you need to create the folder "DargonMods" at the appropriate directory. If you do that, the red square around it should turn green, meaning that the form is complete. Q: How do I remove the mod? A: Right click the mod in Dargon and select "Delete Mod." FOr SIU, select the mod you want to uninstall, and press" uninstall. Q: There's only one folder: "Dravenized Champions." I thought there were 4 folders. A: I put the "Dravenized Jungle" and "Dravenized Turrets" into the "Dravenized Champions" and "Dravenized Champions (SIU)" folders. I combined them to make it easier for everyone.
