Hello everyone, and welcome to our tutorial on how to install custom skins for League of Legends. The program that we use on RuneForge is an application by Moonshadow–called CSLoL-Manager.

When installing the program, make sure that you have the latest release installed, you can confirm as such on github:

Where you install the program by downloading the cslol-manager-windows.exe on GitHub.

When opening the .exe file, your system might warn you about not running unknown .exe files, where you just click “Read More” and then “Run Anyways”.

Once you start installing the program, ensure you do so on a folder created specifically for the program, this is because it will extract all of its files into the chosen folder.


Once the program is installed, please open it where you should see the following:

Here you can choose that the program detects your League of Legends files automatically, which only works when you have your League Client running.

Other option is to browser and directly link it to where you have downloaded League of Legends which is often in C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Game


Once you have the CSLoL-Manager set up, downloading mods is rather straightforward from then on. Simply take the .zip or .fantome file that you downloaded on our site for the relevant skin, and drag and drop it into the program.

As you add the skin into the program, simply click the box to mark it as selected, and click run on the top right corner for it to run.

This is it! Click stop if you don’t want to load the skins anymore, or reselect and add new skins to enjoy them all to your fullest. 


Below are extra tutorials on the following:
- How to Update CSLoL-Manager and Keep Your Files
- Creating Multiple Independent Profiles
- How to Sort Your Mods List

- Conflicting Mods

Updating CSLoL-Manager is quite simple.
On the main folder you have been using the program in, you delete everything except for the folders and the “Config” file.

Whereafter what you do, is run the installer of the updated CSLoL-Manager and extract it in the same main folder, where a popup shows up:

Here you just click “Auto Rename” and it will extract the files. 


And that’s all! Now CSLoL is updated! 


Creating profiles is mainly what one wants to do as a creator. One for when playing with skins and another one when testing the skins that they make. 


How to create an independent profile is quite simple.
What you do is on the CSLoL Manager main folder, you rename the Installed and Profile folders by for example calling them:
- Installed - Test
- Profiles - Test

When you then run the program, it creates new folders to run on where you can add new skins and run an independent profile. 

To change back to the other profile you had running, simply rename the folders back to their original while changing the name of the other profile. 


And that’s it!


Sorting your Mod List is quite simple. Just go into the CSLoL-Manager where your skins are installed, and click edit on each individual item.

From there you can rename the skins to whatever sorting system you wish to have. By champions, by number or anything really. 

Just keep in mind that everything is sorted alphabetically.


In case of conflicting mods, meaning that you have multiple mods that change the same files, but you want one mod’s files to be prioritised over the other.

What you do is simply, as mentioned above with regard to managing your mods, you rename the mod you want to prioritise over the other so that it is at the top of the list.

Then you go into CSLoL-Manager’s setting and enable “Suppress Install Conflicts”.

And that’s it! Now when you run the mods, the files of the top mod will get prioritised and load first, whereas the other mods which got some of the same files edited, will only add those files they do not have in common. 


This is all for our tutorial on how to install custom skins with CSLoL Manager! We sincerely hope that you will enjoy every skin that we have to offer, and that we get to see you in our community.
