Emerging Issue: FPS drops with the reworked Swain

Hey fam! We've started to notice some issues with FPS drops whenever Swain is in a match. Engineers have been gathering info to alleviate this as quickly as possible, but it'd be really helpful if you all could pitch in to speed things up! The steps we'll need you to do will involve making some manual changes to the game config files, but they won't impact your gameplay. These steps only change what happens with the log files generated after a match is finished. - Navigate to C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Config and double-click the "game.cfg" file. - Press "select a program" and click OK. Uncheck the box at the bottom that says "always use the selected...". - Find Notepad and double-click it.In notepad add the following line to the [Performance] section. "LiveProfile=1" It should look similar to this: https://i.gyazo.com/e3115344bb152eb0a6bc0aaded176fdb.png ...make sure to save this file within Notepad. Once that's done you can play a custom game with swain to test your FPS. Test for at least a few minutes then quit the custom game. Navigate to C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Logs\Performance Logs. Attach the log files from here to your support ticket. [**Click Here to Submit a Ticket**](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new)

The only part of this post that bothers me is that a Rioter called us "fam". I will help though. By the way, would it be possible to delete in game chat through this method?
You can hide your in-game chat by dragging it down your screen with your mouse
I did not think of that. Thank you. If you're ever on my team I will honor you.
Woah, then don't, dooderino.
Because this affects only a small percentage of the game population. Who knows, NA might even be the only region that's experiencing this right now. I've played Swain *many* times, and neither me, my teammates, or my opponents any kind of dropped frame rate.
I'm glad this is being talked about and pinned on the top of the boards
Well Broporo, you deserve a snack for this. *throws porosnax* {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} {{item:2009}}
I'm usually pretty skeptical about changing files I know nothing about, even when told by the admin to do it. So many problems can arise just from changing one code. And I'm no engineer but I'm told that's a bad thing when things go wrong.
Literally the only time I *may* have encountered this issue has been on the PBE yesterday, among all of the games I've had swain in. This isn't exactly a huge issue in terms of player effected
Ive gone to 2 - 3 FPS while playing renekton and ulting during the middle of swains ult. Usually I go to around 5 fps if hes on my screen.
So if we don't own swain should we just not ban him and send the ticket after we lose? honest question because I HAVE to perma ban him in order to play the game.
I'd like to point out it's not just Swain causing this. It's the game in general. I've played several games where neither team has a Swain, and it's just be unexplained FPS drops for both teams.
Yes. I had a problem not moving today at all in my first game so I did the extraordinary and did these steps. I will be submitting my support ticket soon too. Thanks for the help! {{champion:163}}
When your last name is pham so when people call other people "fam" you turn your head to make sure they aren't talking to you.
It's a trap. You're modifying game files. The client will notice and you will get banned for scripting. BUT NICE TRY , RIOT! {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
I'd love to do this but I don't own Swain so ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
I played both with, as and against Swain today, and I can't say I noticed anything at all. Steady 120-160 FPS throughout it all as far as I could tell. I remember that file, by the way - does this still work? Height=1200 Width=5760 That across 3 monitors worked a treat last I tried. A freaking nightmare to play with, as the aim was about 4 Teemos out of alignment, but it technically worked nicely.
