So i have 2 Screens. one smaller and one larger. i made the smaller one my "primary" screen and started LOL. then i took the patcher to the larger screen. after pressing play, the PVP.NET-Client was rendered to my Main Screen (the smaller, "primary") again. Again i moved him to the larger screen. when the game started, the Client was rendered to the smaller screen with the resolution of the bigger screen(!). someone has an idea on how to avoid this?

Try going into your monitor settings in the control panel and making sure the larger screen is considered the "Primary". – Decency Feb 11 '13 at 15:51
He's right, I do this at work – user41604 Feb 11 '13 at 15:52
At least for me, the game always jumps to the "Primary" screen no matter where I put the launcher. You might just have to change that to your primary screen to play LoL. At least it's not hard to change back. – Aaron Brown Feb 11 '13 at 16:18
@Vogel612 Couldn't you just when the game has started, put fullscreen off drag and put fullscreen back on again? – Lyrion Feb 11 '13 at 19:01
@Vogel612 Hmm ok, have you checked in the ...\lol\Config\game.cfg ? Maybe you can force it there via a setting but I don't know, i work with 2 monitors. But at home i play one 1 big ass monitor so never had the problem :p – Lyrion Feb 12 '13 at 9:59

The placement of the launcher has no bearing on where the game will display. If you are playing in fullscreen mode it will default to your primary monitor. Some games have the options to set the monitor you are wanting to use, this is normally located under options > video.
