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