it's in its original location west of lumbridge, since the crater wasn't added to darkscape.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

I think they were saying they didn't intend to add highscores, since they didn't want maxing out to be the main point of the game.

Well, the main purpose of DarkScape is PvP right..

Yeah having +50% exp for nonmembers (and +100% for members) and free membership, fresh economy and whatnot totally doesn't bring another type of players.

 

I see only the occasional 1-item retard (some idiot forgot to activate protect item yesterday, got myself obby maul) the rest of the "PvP"ers are just grinding at Seers (thank God)

Well, it's more that they're providing a pool of victims. Like every other PvP update.

 

However, the key difference is that it's established that the entire game is PvP from the start, and that everybody's scrambling out from roughly the same circumstances, which means that even with different goals, all players understand what they're getting into.

So, I had intended to give this a try this Thursday, since I have some down time before heading out to Boston, but I've discovered that you absolutely require the RS client to play it.  I don't see a way around this.

 

This wouldn't be that big of a deal, and considering I've been on Linux full-time for the last eight years, I'm accustomed to not getting much of anything for games.  But...I've at least been capable of playing RuneScape in that period of time.  Wonder what changed.

They dropped browser support on FF and Chrome a while back, I think. You have to get the client to play, there should be a Linux version out there somewhere!

world202 was normally for beta worlds no?

Fun fact though, for the DarkScape client, it uses jav_config_beta.ws

Speaking of it, what happened to beta client? I thought they'd be keeping them up indefinitely to keep testing new features every time.

From what I recall, Chrome removed NPAPI support (which removed the Java plugin), and Firefox hasn't done so yet.  I'm still able to play through Firefox, but if that's not supported...that's not a good thing.

 

 

Hmm...I don't suppose any of this might help?

 

There's some bitter irony to that.  I used to maintain that Linux help thread (in general), and I intentionally never wanted to make a client since, at the time, there were still a lot of players and there was still a lot of concern around third party clients and their use.   The convention has been, of late, to recommend the use of the clients, which is something I'm opposed to.  If that's the only option, though...I guess I ain't playing DarkScape. :(

So you're going to be disappointed at not being able to play DarkScape because you chose not to install RSU client.

It appears they recently changed fixed that link.

 

There goes my way of playing.

World 200 worked out for me in-browser.  Thanks for that!  I was worried there.

 

So you're going to be disappointed at not being able to play DarkScape because you chose not to install RSU client.

 

Well, I shouldn't have to.  It's still Java in a browser, and Firefox still supports it on Linux.  Why should I use an unofficial method if a more official method exists?
