Hey all,

There will be a system update in approximately one hour's time. This will be to fix some graphical issues, and to relabel and add another Dungeoneering world.

Mod Easty


This is the first big step to the FPS fix. Myself as well as many others are now sitting on maxed 50 FPS. If anyone would like to share how happy they are, or comment on how long the fix took, feel free to do so.

Also, please mention whether or not you've noticed a difference in your FPS rates. :thumbup:


The dungeoneering labels are now as follows:

W32 Dungeoneering: Levels 1-80
W77 Dungeoneering: Levels 100-120
W117 Dungeoneering: Levels 80-100


Performance Improvement Update

10 hours ago

Today sees the release of a significant performance improvement update to RuneScape which will improve frame rate and the general game play experience, which has been an issue for some players recently.

Performance

As many of you will be aware, some our previous anti-bot initiatives caused an adverse affect on the frame rate and performance of the game. The Game Engine Team has been working very hard on solutions to this and the update should bring significant increases in overall playability for the vast majority of those affected, noticeably more so on lower-spec computers.

Bots

As part of our ongoing effort to combat bots, this update also contains additional adjustments to the engine which will significantly disrupt bots.

Future Updates

These changes are only part of our ongoing efforts to continually improve the performance of the game, as well as to combat bots, and we have further updates in these areas planned for the next few months.

At times we may go a little quiet in these areas - this is because it’s often hard to share details of what we’re working on without giving bot makers information that they can use to their advantage. Rest assured, though, that we understand how these issues affect how you play and enjoy the game, so solving them is of paramount importance to us.

The RuneScape Team

Your dial up has nothing to do with your FPS. Only your CPU, GPU and memory affect it.

On topic, I had steady 50 FPS before, and I still do. No change for me, but I'm happy if other people's FPS is getting better.

Internet speed has nothing at all to do with FPS. As mentioned above it is your GPU (Graphics Card) CPU (Processor) And your RAM (Memory)

FPS Is frames per second, Calculating how many.. Frames per second are being processed..

Back on topic.. I went from 15 FPS To 45.

This seems great. Let's hope at least some of those bots disappear now!
I haven't had much troubles with FPS before, but sometimes in places with a lot of people it have become quite laggy. I have tested going to the GE and the LRC on W84 already, and it works just as if there was pretty much none there except myself. So with this update Jagex succeeded anyway. Great work!

I've gone from spending the majority of my time at 5- 7 FPS to now spending the majority of my time at at 50 - 51.
I like :D

So Jagex has taken a low key approach to bots this time, just as they tell their players with report abuse. Hmm.
Meanwhile my fps seems to be up to 30 in a completely empty world and around 15 in world 1. That's a slight improvement over about 20/10 before. But I do get 50 fps in the lobby.

Shouldn't affect me too much, my FPS was never THAT bad unless I went maxed settings with AA/Bloom.

Happy for the many players it will benefit though.

I should be able to run max settings at 50 fps, but I've only been getting above 10 in fixed mode and min detail.

Let's hope this update changes things.

After a bit of testing, this stuff really worked.
Constant 50 fps in most places instead of normal 30. Haven't tried busy areas yet.

I don't know whether I'm happy or sad right now. I desperately want the FPS rate to be fixed as I often find myself hovering around 6-10 down from ~40 but on the otherhand I was using the pitiful fps rates as an escuse not to attempt Jad :P

Looking forward to trying it out this evening... while still staying in the RuneSpan of course ;)

It's just the beginnings. Most bots are online atm, only ones I haven't seen yet are green dragon ones, but it can take time for them to log on. As mentioned, we probably won't see the impact of a large anti-bot update for a month or two.

According to Jacmob Optimus isnt just a single bot nuke (like clusterflutterer) but a platform for quickly distributing constant nukes. Perhaps Optimus has now been deployed but the nukes have yet to fire?

Appears to help me a bit in more dense areas where my fps would drop 10-15. But I know a few friends that had horrible fps since the nuke, so this should be a welcome re-leaf for them :P
