Basics

What is a Custom Skin?

A custom skin is a modification for characters, maps, sounds and more in League of Legends.

Is using custom skins bannable?

No it’s not. Riot’s only statement for this is they put “Custom Skins” in the category “Use-At-Your-Own-Risk”.
There were no bans yet for custom skin related programs.

Using custom skins

Do people see my skins?

No. Only you can see your custom skins.

Can I use custom skins in ranked games?

Yes you can. There is no difference between ranked / normals or practice tool.

Do I need to choose the classic skin?

Depends on the custom skin you are using. Most champion skins replace the base skin, but you will have to read the actual post, it will say under “Skin Infos” which skin it replaces.

Can I use multiple skins at once?

Yes, as long as they don’t replace the same files, for example you can’t have 2 HUD mods installed at once, but you can use a custom skins for Yasuo and Evelynn in the same game.

My mod is in .fantome format, can I still use it in LCS-Manager?

Yes, .fantome is both for Fantome and LCS-Manager, as they use the same way of installing skins.


Troubleshooting

Why is my skin not working in-game?

This only happens when:

  1. The program is not working right now and needs a fix.
  2. The mod you are using is not updated for this patch yet.
  3. Your mod has an incorrect .wad.client name (they are case sensitive!).
  4. League changed up its game files.

Check this post for more in-depth help or ask for help on our Discord server.

Does LCS-Manager work with the newest update?

Normally yes. Make sure you are using the latest versions of either program and check the #announcements channel in our Discord-server to get information about program functionality.
Our frontpage also states the current status of custom skin programs.

Old stuff

What happened to Wooxy?

Wooxy is no longer used for installing custom skins and no longer able to.
You can still use features of the program. You can download it here: Wooxy.
It might trigger your Antivirus, but it is a false positive and not a virus.

What happened to Voxskins?

The website got shut due to hosting issues, we fully transferred over to Killerskins, the same admins and members are still around and old skins were recovered or will be reuploaded.

What happened to Mapskins?

The owner shut it down due to inactivity as custom skins back then were not possible to use for a while.
Old skins were recovered.

What happened to Leaguecraft?

It got shut down due to inactivity most likely, but nobody in this community was really involved in it.
Some skins were recovered.
