I like the smaller updates this week, still dont understand the reason behind keeping the Wild wall, Just get rid of it? or keep for pvp and bh worlds? as for the commands, i personally dont get it?

 

I hate the new text, i hate some of the new item looks. I.e Ammys, and the Slayer Cape

Due to the z-buffer changes, the Wilderness ditch no longer looked right (in fact it looked rather unsightly). As such, the ditch has been filled in and a low wall has been built in its place. The positioning and path of the wall follows where the ditch was, and you can still jump over it as quickly as you could the ditch.

 

IOW, they had an opportunity to remove the Ditch of Shame and decided to replace it instead with a wall. I love this company!

 

We've enabled access to our developer console to allow players a small selection of commands, which you may prove useful in tracking down the cause of more technical issues with the client on your computer. Just hit the back quote key (`), also known as the grave accent key, which is found left of the '1' key on most QWERTY keyboards. Input 'help' into the developer console for more information and a list of available commands.

 

Which will play havoc with anyone who uses dead keys for typing accented characters. Why not just shut down the French servers altogether?

 

I quite like the new splash screens.

 

FWIW, FPS hovering at about 25 (standing in the GE); pegging 50 standing in my POH with the familiars off screen - 30ish when they are romping in my field of view.

 

It's also nice that I can see the client downloading cache in the background (98.67% of 100%).

A lot of icon glitches, lots of them appear to be broken.

 

Like my Goblin teleport sphere's. :P

Kinda like how my elf teleport crystals look though.

It's to prevent pointless luring and excessive whining from noobs who don't know what the Wilderness is.

The only good thing of this update: "Auto equip of Dungeoneering items". I hate the new "loading please wait" message.

I guess that means "tilde" is a North American colloquialism. :shades:

 

A tilde is "~" :)

^^ A herblore cost/xp calculator. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Cleaning herbs has the values switched at the moment, but the fix has been submitted.

So if i am right this allows jagex to make new city's more "epic" (Priffindas for example)?

Hmm I think I got a better idea why 'software' or 'safe' mode even in lowest detail looks completely glitched to me since release and still today. My framerate in that mode is 8 while standing in poh not near any pets but in opengl or directx its just 35-50 (max) framerate while in max settings.. It goes lower end when I go near my zoo lol. Then back up to 50 on other side of house. I bet it still goes down to 5-10 near g.e though lol. Those other modes obviously cant handle resolution or something.

 

Seems like a very nice update. I not too sure if its made it faster yet but if thats true thats great too.

I hope this means that his book barrage no longer appears wherever you have run to if he uses it as he teleports, that's annoying <_<
