I'ts possible your graphics card just can't handle med. graphics, although it's unlikely on a computer with w7. Can you post your specs?

It has an Intel GMA. I have no idea what the requirements for RuneScape's medium detail are but it is probably choking.

Intel GMA... Probably not strong enough to have it to more than min settings. What is your processor?

Perhaps try a different renderer. eg Software instead of OpenGL or DirectX

Intel HD graphics should run that easily. I was expecting something like the old Intel GMA.

You sure you have the latest graphics drivers installed as well as Java drivers?

 

P.S. Firefox 4 is out now. You can try that.

 

And if you can, try different browsers including the downloadable client.

Not necessarily. I don't think it automatically installs from version 3.6.X -> 4. I had to manually upgrade mine. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

 

As for Java, it usually asks you on your taskbar whether or not you want it updated, but sometimes these settings can be set so that it doesn't automatically update.

 

Did you by any chance try any other browsers? It can help minimize the problem to being Java or something related to that rather than your browser.

Hi, I have a similar problem.

 

When I am at the resource dungeon in mining guild (the one that has 3 runites....), I often get a black screen that forces me to close that page, therefore I need to reload the game (in fact, I usually have 2 other separators ready to login....).

 

I use W7, Firefox4, a geoforce9300. Before (with same problem) I was on Win XP and a previous Firefox version. I also tried with Chrome. Happens the same. Direct X is on.

 

I do not hop worlds. Usually I stay in one world and wait for runite to show up while I do other things. The situation reported only occurs IN THERE and it happens frequently.

 

Bad english is due to the fact that it is not my mother tongue. Apologies.

 

Any ideas or sugestions are very much welcome. Thank you in advance.

Weird, I experienced the exact same problem in the resource dungeon in the normal mine. You should file a report with jagex, saying that other players are experiencing the same problem.

Seems that the resource dungeon happens to more people. As I mentioned it does only occur in that place. General RS game works fine.

 

I will be checking the RS website again (tech probs) and if anything appears I'll let you know. Otherwise I'll try a report.

Regarding resource dungeon problem I have got a reply from RS foruns which I copy to here:

 

 

"Switching to OpenGL will stop this from happening, i guarantee it :)

 

OpenGL is laggier though :|

 

DirectX has blackscreened in there ever since it came out, and Jagex have supposedly been "investigating the issue" the whole time :( "

 

 

Let's see if it works ! i'll keep you posted.
