  1. Whats happening is that the runescape website is trying to load the "official client" this is fine however at the moment swiftkit isn't looking for it so it's not doing anything.

     

    On the side  of swiftkit if you click the drop down arrow on there a box to check use "RS client".

     

    if you check that Swiftkit will start to look for the official client and load the game.

  2. This relates to the issues we are having with our service providers who are currently being attacked, it's not our site specifically that is down it's a large chuck of our providers network.

     

    What is happening is that the launcher is trying to update and can't reach our servers because of the attack. At the moment the vast majority of swiftkit users are experiencing the same difficulties however swiftkit will normally bypass the update process.

     

    However because you are running swiftkit for the first time it needs to update in order to open as not all files etc are included in the install process.

     

    I'm afraid there's not much we can do until our provider is back online.

  3. I'm also receiving this, from what I have been able to work out so far it looks like flash is actually crashing when the news page loads which is in turn causing Swiftkit to crash.  Will update once I have a solution.

     

    Update:

     

     

    Known issues in this security update

     
    We are aware of limited application crashes that occur after this security update is installed on Windows 10. 
     
    Microsoft is researching this problem with Adobe and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
     
     

    There was an issue with the windows update last night. 


  4. Looks like a firewall (being a fresh install most likely the windows firewall) is blocking Swiftkit. As the patch notes aren't loading and the timeout error is because swiftkit can't reach the update server.

     

    My first suggestion if you haven't tried this already would be to right click swiftkit and go run as admin.

     

    My Second suggestion would be to allow swifkit access through your firewall.

     

     

    you can do this by type "allow app" into the start menu this will then bring up the windows firewall where you can add swiftkit to the exceptions.


  5. you have a setting configured to limit the size of screenshots, if you select "original" in the Screenshot settings this will increase the resolution.

     

     

    SK has been tested to work with up to 4K resolutions.


  6. sounds like there is an issues unpacking the images in the calculator you can disable the images,

     

    you can disable the images by going view > settings  then check the "disable loading calculator images" box

    Just to clarify what marius is saying, after meeting with Jagex at Runefest and talking to them about these issues, what orion dose in terms of reading data from the java client isn't a breach of the rules as such they are allowed to do it because they only read data not write it.

     

    Think of it as a decriminalisation, its a breach of the rules but you won't be punished as there was no harm done.

     

    There is a very fine line when it comes to decoding the java client. One we currently don't have any plans to walk.

     

    Why do they go back on their own rules then? This is what Orion clearly does (the quote below, underlined).

     

    * Software that monitors, modifies or decrypts the communications between our game applets and our game worlds.

     

    There's no way Orion could do the things it does unless it reads/monitors the packets.

     

     

     

    Your not wrong they are going back on it. And I would be right here arguing the point with you (see my previous posts) if i hadn't heard it from them myself.  They allow them to do it because there's no harm done.

  9. I believe you just need to right click swiftkit and go run as an administrator. So that way it can write the updates to your hard drive.


  10. Sorry to sort of pass the buck and not be very helpful but the issues appear to be caused by something other than Swiftkit then, so you would have better luck on the official forums as jomd's know a lot more about game rendering then we do.
