I fail to see any graphical faults in that screenshoot other than slightly distorted text which generally can be fixed by changing the anti-aliasing settings and/or is a sign of wrongly proportioned screen res (eg using a 16:8 res on a 4:3 monitor)

I fail to see how you fail to see anything wrong with that image.

Anti-aliasing settings, as far as I know and have experienced prior, have never affected text / interfaces, only the actual graphics in the world. It shouldn't be doing what it's doing.

My screen res is perfectly fine, 16:9 @ 1366x768

Not sure what you mean, the graphical errors are clearly seen in the screenshots I provided, unless you meant something else.

Ok there are boxes in that second shot; but there is nothing other than the blurry text in the first shot and just an fyi; your graphics driver itself will have anti-aliasing settings which WILL affect the text, the in-game settings aren't the only settings that exist that can affect the image displayed.

As for the boxing in the second picture:
1) Check for updates to divx, your graphics drivers and java. Java and divx both had updates very recently.
2) Delete the rs cache forcing it to entirely reload; it could be a corrupted file.
3) Completely uninstall and reinstall divx and java.

Divx? I assume you mean DirectX? or am I missing something I should have

And in the first shot there are small lines and artifacts around certain menu icons and such

Try opengl. I see the distortion, not sure exactly sure what would be causing it though. Do any other games have issues?

OpenGL works perfectly fine.

DirectX also fixes distortion when I turn off Anti-aliasing in the RS options. Problem is RS is ugly as s*** without AA on. The old laptop, which is inferior to this new one, could do DirectX with AA on 4x and haveno distortion.

Uninstalling and reinstalling Java did nothing, and my drivers are up to date. So I'm quite confused.

I went into my graphics cards settings and put everything to it's defaults, as well as attempted to turn off it's own smoothing capabilities, to no avail.

Logdotzip, do you have any issues when you set RuneScape's AA to 2x? I don't know for sure, but knowing this might help point to where the fault is. :-k

I can't even find DirectX on my computer to uninstall it with, much less do I know which one I would need to reinstall. I imagine I have it, since DirectX *does* run, just runs ugly. Any chance you could direct me in the right way?

Thinking about it I don't think there is really a way to uninstall directx, and doing so would cause more issues that it may solve.

You can make sure it is up-to-date though:

That is the latest updater for direct x

That did nothing for me

I am afraid I don't know what to do to remedy the situation, nothing new that I havent yet tried is coming to mind.

I appreciate your help thus far anyways, but it's still not right.

It seems I'm not the only person to have trouble seeing anything wrong in the pictures. As Sy said, the text is slightly (very slightly) odd in the first picture, and there are some boxes on the log-in screen, but apart from that it looks to be fine. This leads me to think it could be something to do with your monitor/screen somehow. Although I'm not sure how to do anything, it would definitely explain why only you can see the error.

That's just it, that is what's wrong with it. The game world itself is fine. The menus and a few icons are the problems. Resizing / Everything mentioned above didn't help at all.

If something was wrong with the actual monitor itself I don't think it would show up on a print screen picture. Maybe there's a fault with your cables?

Edit: A GT525M is a laptop graphics card right? Maybe the screen on your laptop is coming loose which has loosened cables and caused the strange screen effects? Just a guess and I don't know how you would check it. :unsure:

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.

Only happens with the interfaces / menus, I would assume if it was loose cables it would affect more than that.

I know this has to be fixable, I just don't know where to begin looking.
