We hear from many Plays.tv users that they can't record League of Legends for some reason. This is a list of things that you can try in order to get recordings of your games.
NOTE: We know of a solution that may help you record League because there are two launchers. Read about which one you should use here.
Is League running in a Compatibility mode?
Right-click the League of Legends.exe, click properties, click compatibility tab. Make sure Compatibility mode is unchecked.
The default file path for League of Legends exe is:
C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\solutions\lol_game_client_sln\releases\ [a version number] \deploy\League of Legends.exe
Is your hard disk almost full?
Plays.tv will stop recording if your recording drive has less than 20% of its free space left. For example, if you have less than 24 gb left in a 120GB hard drive, recording will stop. This means that you should keep a large amount of space free so that you won’t miss a recording.
You should reinstall the League of Legends program if you have done any of the following:
Reinstalled Windows or upgraded to a new version of Windows
Changed Boot Drives
Manually moved League of Legends without reinstallation.
- Run the League of Legends Launcher
- Click on the '?' button that is located in the top right corner of the window.
- Click the 'Repair' button
- Wait for the function to complete. It can take anywhere from 5 minutes to over 30 depending on the number of corrupt files it has to repair.
Rotating Game Modes:
Rotating game modes are the game modes written in yellow text that are available only on weekends.
Currently, Plays.tv doesn’t support any Rotating game modes such as Ascension, Hexakill, etc.
If you get recordings, but you are seeing the game listed as “League of Legends ™” (Note the ‘™’ in the title), then it means that League of Legends is not being detected. See below.
