22-Jul-2013 - RuneScape 3!

Recommended Posts

servers are totally not ready

 

Assuming it really was a problem with the data center, they're usually few and far between. Is it really wise to use that as a basis for saying whether or not the servers can handle RS3?

 

It wasn't just the Vorago release though. That was the most striking example, but there've been regular problems with server disconnects throughout 2013.

That's true, I've only had more server issues with RuneScape in 2002 and 2003, but then again I had a worse internet then (256Kb/s DSL compared to 24Mb/s now.)

Completely fair point. To tack onto that, weren't they supposed to be upgrading something to do with their servers with the money from MTs so things like this didn't happen as frequently?

Wouldn't be surprised if they are loading RS3 onto mostly new servers since the big change over gives them more time to preload and avoid disrupting worlds and then for the launch just redirect the server paths and decommission the old servers.

 

Would be a some what logic way to do it, especially if we assume some of the older servers may lack the tech to run the new engine and we know they are adding in dedicated audio servers.

It might also explain why the game runs smoother in the beta..

i remember in 2010 or so i had intel E6400 machine and it was able to handle rs gathering in full details where like 1k ppl were packed to one place...2012 i tried same with new i5 machine and couldnt go anywhere near the event as it was guaranteed 1fps or less...only minimum details was possible but didnt like playing with 07 look

 

now rs somewhat playable in hd and getting 30-50fps most of time...tried html beta after they have optimized it little from first release and it was still horrible to play and cpu usage was ~30% more compared to normal...with medium details

The real framerate killer for me is shadows, I go from 15-25 in busy areas up to 60 when I turn them off.

I think Jagex's servers are certainly stable enough for something like this--we certainly have enough of them, and I imagine they will be adding many more to handle RS3 launch day. The only possible issue would be the login server and the other smaller bottlenecks, but I'm sure they have a solution prepared for scaling and/or adding more. Anyone who has any sort of training in server architecture would be able to foresee the potential issues there, I would highly doubt that Jagex's staff wouldn't.

 

The Vorago downtime was a completely different one-off issue if what we were hearing is correct--an exploit that allowed Instance Shard worlds to be the target of a DDOS attack. It's entirely possible something like that could happen on launch day, but even if it can, there's no feasible way to prevent it before it happens.

 

I would definitely expect issues on launch day--there hasn't been a single MMO launch or relaunch in the past decade that hasn't had its issues--but I think that they have been preparing quite well for whatever gets thrown at them come July 22nd.

I'm just hoping the code is a little more optimized. Still completely unable to load on my chrome book and I haven't had a chance to try it on my tower recently.

I tried running the beta again for the first time in awhile on Saturday. Took forever for my i5 to load it and the best I got was 17 fps max.

 

That was at the portal at Port Sarim outside of POP.

 

I can run the current mode of RS on the client at 30-50 fps in almost every location.

 

I was very disappointed.

I just cannot see the Beta being ready in two weeks. EoC Beta was not in this condition when it was released. I can run the current game version at 40+ FPS nearly everywhere, but run HTML5 Beta at ~15 at max graphics and just over 20 on the lowest settings. I know it's a Beta, but two weeks from live release it has to be better than this:

even with preloading, they still haven't fixed the object rendering issues....everything still fills in step by step instead of all at once

 

this be the main issue

I really hope we don't get that "loading shaders" every time we log in. Is that, by any chance, the 'large data' that chrome asks to store on my computer whenever I load the beta?

If this version is so clearly buggy, it deffinitely seems like theyre claiming they have a proper finished product version theyre not letting us see that they intend to release on the 22nd. But in which case why are they wasting the beta testers time if they have a better version available?

 

 

Or is it just the option we dont want , that its just not ready

I personally believe that the NIS + HTML5 will be better... But I don't have much hope as to the actual quality...

 

I really really hope we get an NIS + HTML5 combined beta before release.

I can't even load the damn thing... I hope they're not going to change their plans and suddenly delete JAVA support. :s It's already bad enough I will not get the extra experience for playing the beta.

At least we're going to be able to use the Java client if they can't fix the HTML5 client for the 22nd.

And as for the bonus EXP, I think it's safe to assume just being logged into the NIS Beta would be enough.

I am personally very much looking forward to NIS update. At least now I can zoom my RS to full screen without handicapping myself by dragging my inv and bank screens apart by 100 miles (which is basically my only gripe with Full screen RS, otherwise I would have never played on windowed).

 

Just surprised it took them this long to implement it

Has anyone looked at the concept art for divination shown in the rs3 video? I would imagine that the god energy shows up randomly like fire spirits web training firemaking. I would also speculate that there might be different types of energy to bring variation.

 

There are three drawings shown: one showing three stages of the energy spawning, three stages of the energy des pawning from players collecting it and another with a player turning in the energy to a portal/doorway.

 

Almost thinking divination will be like runespan.

As observational as this is I fail to see why it belongs in the RS3 launch thread, seeing as we have 100% confirmation it is a separate update coming out like a month after RS3

Because this thread referencesthea new post that holds a video about runescape 3. And at the end of that video is a slight teaser of divination with concept art. That art therefore can be discussed here.

As I wrote in that RSOF news thread, Mod William is just running a personal scam amongst the chaos of HTML5+NIS transition.
