League of Legends Skin Collection

User PrettyPixelz of Minecraftforum.com has merged two of the most popular games today in an epic year-long project spurred on by a lack of an internet connection.  Behold: 31 masterfully crafted skins of characters from League of Legends!

 

In case you are not familiar with the title, League of Legends was created in 2009 and has become the world’s most-played online game.  Is characters have spread quickly throughout the internet – as you can see by this skin collection.

 

What follows is a complete list as of the date of this posting containing all 31 skins by PrettyPixelz in alphabetical order of the character for your convenience (except for Tibbers for relevance).  Simply click the link to be taken to the skin page, where you can view a rotating 3D model of the skin applied to the Minecraft player model.  Note that some characters with sub-skins do not have their original skins included.

 

 

Installing the Skins

For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on Minecraft.net.  To download these League of Legends skins, click on the appropriate link and choose “download”, located in the top-right corner.  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one.  Simply click the “upload to Minecraft” button diagonal from the download button.
For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:

 

  1. Download the skin’s .png file from the list above;
  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.
  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.
  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.
  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.
  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.
  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).
  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.

Remember to keep your meta.inf and original Steve texture safe.

Now for the important question – who is going to create a five versus five League of Legends mini-game server?  Comment below on your favorite LoL skin from this list in the mean time!
