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.

hello, i am very happy with the mod quality (is god tier for me), but i also must ask for an "Mx spanish" version for the shopkeepers if you can do it for us it would be a even brighter masterpeace.

 by h4x0reL in 01/05/2022

Please update my fav map <3

 by DrunkenDemon in 30/04/2022

Kinda post a comment about the crash in the 12.8 update but it doesn't matter anymore. Nice work my dude, rlly love the map and all the effort you put to bring it back to life for the ones who miss it. (Easy 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)

 by RRG.R in 04/03/2022

Is there a way to remove GP/Pyke's voice and change to the default announcer?

 by Yuno in 18/02/2022

It seems to crash for me, the loading is stuck at 0%, the game isn't responding and I get sent back to the launcher after a minute or two (I started the program as Admin, hid eye candy and I initiated a full repair as well).

 by Velkoon in 14/02/2022

hope you don't stop maintaining this. I remember this event--It happened like a couple days after my first ARAMs. I thought it was the beginning of many custom maps to come. How wrong I was. Glad to be able to use this again

 by Madison in 11/12/2021

Please fix :L

 by Leischii in 24/12/2021

Fixed, map should work again :)

 by bladerjoe in 06/12/2021

 by Yoru in 24/11/2021

 by Saberr in 21/10/2021

Crashing after patch 11.21.

 by bayag in 21/10/2021

 by Rukah in 12/08/2021

Hii, is there any way of using pyke announcer in any map?

 by BLUbeast in 27/07/2021

is there a way i can only use pyke announcer on any map?

 by Frachlitz in 15/06/2021

-Snowball looks hard to see. -The old shopkeeper's reading is still on. ♥

 by Woopatt in 01/06/2021

The mod is cool but I feel like the fps goes down every time you die. I start the game with 144fps and finish the game with like 40fps

 by Leischii in 07/06/2021

Should be fixed with v 1.2 Please let me know if this still happens

 by Woopatt in 13/06/2021

Hello, i played some games and it seems fixed :) Thanks for the update

 by Prolific in 18/05/2021

Looks like its be really cool to use but hasn't work for me when I try to use it in game. I don't get any error codes or anything from lcs I have it running and check marked but it just doesn't retexture the map when I get into the game. Any fixes?

 by Yoru in 18/05/2021

run lcs as admin

 by Alda in 18/05/2021

Severe random fps drops to 1-5 fps, it normally runs smoothly on 60+ fps. when attempting to reconnect the game crashes at 10%

 by ironman2ken40 in 23/05/2021

Am getting the same problem. In game drop graphics settings to low back to High setting. Fps only drops when the ship spawns in the map

 by Leischii in 07/06/2021

Fps bug is fixed now. Fun fact: The reason for the fps were the lamps, not the ship.

 by Leischii in 07/06/2021

Fps bug has been fixed. Please lemme know if this still occurs with v 1.2. The reconnecting bug is really rare and I have not found a fix yet.

 by Stephugi in 03/05/2021

is it possible to change the bilgwater poros to normal poros? if so, how can i do it myself? pls help

 by Leischii in 18/05/2021

Sorry but that is not possible. You would have to make this mod yourself to do that.

 by pantom in 29/04/2021

does not work with 11.9

 by Leischii in 18/05/2021

Should work now.

 by marcos naum in 27/04/2021

is giving error to start on lol: No base .wad found!

 by Leischii in 18/05/2021

This was the case until v1.1 if you use a different language in league than english. From v1.1 onward, just use the normal Butchers Bridge download. If you want the Shopkeepers to have new voicelines and changed your league to english, you can also install the Shopkeeper VO mod.

 by 0815thresh in 19/04/2021

Map is crashing since Patch 11.8

 by Leischii in 23/04/2021
