There are some chat sentences that are being used frequently and I was wondering if macros can be used to type them. For example, I would like my Numpad1 key to write "Top MIA" and my Numpad9 key to write "I am going back to base".

Is it legal to use a 3rd party program for macros in league of legends?

If it is legal, which one do you use?

Sometimes a second is all it takes to get ganked (while your typing) esp. with global abilities or clever ambushes.

Ok, a short sentence like "top mia" is not a good example. But it can be useful for longer sentences (6+ words).

I remember one time I was playing as cho and I was going back to base. while I was teleporting, I typed "I need to go back. be careful from a gank" and in the middle of the sentence eve comes and ganks my overextending lane partner who saw me just stand there. After he got killed he kept cursing me for not helping him, but I was too busy typing. Communication is very important for a team game...

even mia for lanes on single keys would be useful...seeing as your skillbuttons would still be responsive and you would be able to play responsively even when reporting miss or wahtever unlike when typing **** in the chat yo(even if it's only a second take into consideration how long a second in this game is..1sec of being unresponsive can get you killed )

It's possible and legal. LoL ACE client has similar things as in-built options: there's HkM (Hotkey Manager) that lets you set buttons for various actions, such as Miss Top/Mid/Bot, Push, Retreat, Help etc.

To get it simply download ACE client (you can find link somewhere in forums, can't remember exactly where) - while there's no official support for it, team coding it is offering support in their forums, and it has several nice things that official client lacks (aside from Hotkey manager you get Recommended item editor, Mastery manager, Interface editor, can switch between US and EU servers with 3 clicks etc.)

I am trying autohotkey but it doesn't seem to work with league of legends.
I used the macro:

Code:
^Numpad0::
Send {Enter}
Send {G}
Send {o}
Send {o}
Send {d}
Send {Space}
Send {L}
Send {u}
Send {c}
Send {k}
Send {Space}
Send {&}
Send {Space}
Send {H}
Send {a}
Send {v}
Send {e}
Send {Space}
Send {F}
Send {u}
Send {n}
Send {Space}
Send {:}
Send {)}
Send {Enter}
return
When the front window is notepad, and I press ctrl+numpad0, it writes "[Enter]Good Luck & Have Fun [Enter]". but in the league of legend client nothing happens.

there're prolly ways to make it work you could still use the hotkey manager from the ace client with your regular lol client i think

Try this, I uploaded my Hotkey Manager, I believe you can use it with default LoL client (didn't try it as I'm running ACE client):

EDIT: Herbert was faster xD I couldn't be bothered to look for actual thread and uploading it seemed faster for me, but both are same and will work :P
