I'm still trying to figure out how this impacts those of us on Linux. HikariKnight has his work cut out for him, I think, and I'm guessing many of us may just stick with Java via the client port, because browser-plugins are generally gone for us.

HTML5 should work with Chrome on linux? It might even work better than java does.. I don't think it needs a plugin. But.. browser may not have Linux WebGL support? I don't know.. I haven't tried rs on linux in a while.

What the HTML5 beta needs is a buttload of optimisation and fixes. Most of the game is damn near unplayable in HTML5.

What I'm curious with is if we are actually dropping the 3 once this is live or is it going to be Runescape 3 forever?
The later would certain confuse outsiders since there is no visible Runescape 2 and it is unclear in that context what Classic is.

As stated above RuneScape 3 should run perfect on Linux if you are using Google Chrome, and If I remember correctly I think one of the developers of Jagex stated It should work on the Linux Operating System.

What I'm curious with is if we are actually dropping the 3 once this is live or is it going to be Runescape 3 forever?

I personally believe the three should remain visible within the name of RuneScape 3 as it's the next generation of the game, and the opening of the sixth age. I understand where you are coming from, but I think they plan on keeping it as RuneScape 3.

wonder if the servers can handle it....


With any release as big as RuneScape 3 there will be bugs, issues, and mishaps at first, but that will come with any game being released no matter how long you work on it. I'm sure after a little bit of tweaks, bug fixes, and beta testing things will sort its self out; I'm sure the servers can handle the release of RuneScape 3, but of course there's going to be problems at first.

So SgtAzazel, after this gamewide DC, does your response to my previous comment change in any way?

As I stated above there's always going to be issues in games as big as RuneScape; The disconnecting of the servers are due to a mistake that was made in the bringing about of Vorago. I'm not denying that there are problems with the servers, but just like any game developers rather it's Jagex or any other they will resolve the issue. There's never going to be a perfect game as we as people are not perfect; with that being said, I believe with a little bit of work the servers will be fine.

I don't know about you but I'm still waiting for them to give us information about why this keeps happening. They posted on thread on forums with a general statement acknowledging the problem... only 10 hours late

Either way these servers need to be fixed, dcing has been a constant problem even before this update

Right now I play RuneScape in the Java client between low and medium graphics settings. If I play the HTML 5 client, will I get the same results if I turn the graphics settings between low and medium or will I need to stick with the Java client?

I did some dungoneering on HTML5, and it was horrid.. so many graphic glitches etc.

I wonder how much they are bothering considering that they will be using the RS3 engine at launch of html5, and that engine may provide more/better information for the html5 client, which may solve some of the loading issue and/or the graphic glitches.

I hope we get a new HTML5 + NIS beta test soon.

HTML5 client doesn't have the same settings (at present) and I don't know how well it works, but for most people it is much slower and has issues at the moment. It does look nice and somethings are better.

But the NIS engine is a lot more responsive and the interface is way more streamlined. I believe NIS will have a much better overall experience with HTML5 than the regular engine will..

Unless Jagex has a new build they have not released to beta, RS3 is not even close to being ready. HTML5 still has pop-in issues and overall poor performance and the NIS is still really, really rough around the edges.

This time of year- the summer games slump- is the perfect time to release RS3 and I can see why they want to release it ASAP, but it just isn't ready. Between a new, underoptimized game engine and a new but still very buggy and rough interface system, I can't see this ending well. I'd wager it will take at least a month after slated release to see RS3 fully functioning the way Jagex hopes and the players expect.

they usually do updates every 2 weeks, and they have just over 2 weeks till release, plus I think this week is an update one..

We also haven't seen a build of NIS + HTML5 yet. I think some issues will be fixed there, due to NIS having different engine..

but we won't know till we see it.

It had better appear before release in order to get some modicum of testing.. and I am really curious because they definitely mentioned bugs in html5 which won't be fixed because the NIS system fixes them already. (Keybind issues for one)

I couldn't agree more with this. For RS3 to be enjoyable at all for a huge lot of players they first need to make it playable. I can barely play it on my laptop :/

I get 30fps (capped max) in maximum graphics, and 60fps (capped) in minimum. Using Linux Mint 13.
No impact on me. :lol:

I am excited for it, but I am still going to wait, and see before completely making up my mind about it. (I just hope they have changed the dark outline on bank/inventory items).
