Bug list

Here is a list of every problem that I know of that are still present. Feel free to leave a comment when you find a bug that is not on that list.

  • A few levelprops are still missing. These don’t work with the workaround (Shadowsharks/Bottles)
  • The ship sailing on the river is not synced with the bridge door. Ship might sail through the door.
  • Background Levelprops may flicker when moving the camera. If this is irritating you, you can turn those levelprops off by turning off the “Eyecandy” option in the video settings.
  • Transitions from turret to destroyed turret don’t overlap correctly.
  • Cast effect for chaos turret is missing. Waiting for Riot to fix spell origin setting.
  • Changing teamcolors midgame results in smoke appearing from the turret as if it was destroyed.
  • Special Vo interactions are missing. Still investigating…
  • Red side shopkeeper is glitching through his tent when going back in. Need someone else to help me with this problem since it also needs animation modification.
  • Using a different language than english results in an error during installation of the VO addon.
  • First blood cannon shots are missing. There is no server event that could trigger this on normal aram, so not possible.
  • Spectator mode is bugged. Jumping on the timeline or spectating in general can crash the game.
  • Some levelprops don’t show up again when you turn on the “eyecandy”-setting ingame. Will be back with the next game and can be turned off ingame, just turning them back on ingame is not working for all levelprops.

Miss this mod SOOOO much! Even with the new update of ARAM changes, can you bring it back please? Or we need to wait when the Riot will be update the map by themselves? :c


Crashes in loading screen.


Man i need this working again plssssssssssssssssssssss


Hey! i love your job! can you update this map? ty!


Game is crashing at loading screen after ARAM 12.23 update.


Crashing 🙁 Pls update q.q


It crashes with latest ARAM changes.

Can you upload the fixed version and link it here? I don’t mind playing with the invisible bush, since I already know where it’s located.


The current version we can download does crash at loading screen. Managed to fix the map myself by digging through the code. But as of patch 12.23 they reworked the map. I can make the mod load properly, but the new bush in the middle is invisible, and the turrets are back to normal. I’m clueless on how to fix this. Hopefully you know how to deal with it. Thank you for your work so far.


not working crashing loading screen


not working, like others below it crashes in loading screen.

Carlos Remouleur

Hey ! The mod doesn’t work anymore, is it due to the 12.22 patch for the pre-season 2023 ?
To explain a bit : During the loading screen, the game will crash and ask to reconnect.

Same problem as kakagoku in the comment section


yeah, it no longer works. Does anyone know of other custom aram map? All I care about is not playing on the default one, it’s too bright 🙁


Game crashes on 90%


The game crashes at 90 percent


i’m very, VERY, afraid this mod is gonna die with the new changes to ARAM. Hell if said that i love the looking, music, gp announcer and oranges over snowball effects of this map… i hope it can be addapted to it with some work but… damn it, it probably gonna die next patch.

A lot of squares in some effects, the ones I most have seen where on ignite and Grievous Wounds

Love the map and I’m still fascinated how you are managing to keep it alive and updated [=


map is awesome! but the grevious wound icon is bugged and it appears as a big red (or white) square
