How do I use LoLTool? I run the program and nothing happens, help!
LoLTool is a system tray application. When you run it there will be no window that pops up. To start using LoLTool right-click on the LoLTool icon in your system tray and select a function from the menu.
Will I get banned for using LoLTool? Is it considered cheating?
No, you will not get banned for using LoLTool. All functionality in LoLTool uses only methods approved by Riot. LoLTool will never contain any functionality that would be considered cheating or hacking.
The timer overlay window shows up on my desktop but not in game. What do I do?
Go into a game of League of Legends, open up the video preferences and make sure that the game is set to use either “Windowed” or “Borderless Window” mode and not “Fullscreen”.
How do I use the jungle timers? We kill Baron/Dragon/Buff Monsters and nothing happens.
The timers are manually controlled. To start a timer you must press the hotkey for it (by default set to the numpad keys, but you can change this in the options menu). Pressing the key again while the timer is running resets it.
Can you make it so that the jungle timers start automatically?
No. While technically it would be possible to do this it would be very difficult. More importantly though I feel that making the timers automatic crosses the line from helpful tool to cheating. For the same reason I will not add automatic chat notifications for when a jungle camp is about to respawn. If you want to let your teammates know that a camp is about to come back you will have to so yourself.
Can I change what happens when I double click the LoLTool tray icon?
Yes. In the options dialog there are several options for what tool to bring up when you double click the icon.
How do I update LoLTool?
Simply restart LoLTool and it will check if any updates are available and automatically download and install them if there are any. If you are having trouble after an update visit this site and try to re-download and run the install program. From time to time there may be new dependencies added as development continues.
Do I have to pay anything to use this program?
Nope. LoLTool is entirely free and always will be. It’s mostly a hobby project of mine and I use it myself all the time. The ads on this website help to pay for the hosting and that’s it. There are no ads or bundled adware with the program. If you like it please consider donating to help cover some more of the hosting cost and my time.
I have a great idea for a feature you should add to LoLTool!
Awesome! Feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll consider your idea. I’m always looking for new ways to improve the user experience.
