I need some serious help.

Ok, so I decided to play RuneScape again after over a year of not playing it. I downloaded the RuneScape client and something horrible has happened.

You see I like multitasking, I like playing RuneScape while watching YouTube videos. That's exactly what I have been doing before I left the game in late 2015.

 

But now every time I try to play RuneScape while watching YouTube videos at the same time, my FireFox keeps crashing. There is also a warning about that the graphic cars might be outdated, so I click update drivers, try to download it, and it STILL says that.

 

Is there a solution to this? I want to be able to watch YouTube videos and play the game at the same time. And I don't wanna have to download another browser since FireFox is my favorite browser.

 

This is new, this has never happened to me before I left the game. Before I left in late 2015 I was able to play the game while watching YouTube videos just fine.

Which client are you playing, the legacy one or NXT? It sounds odd, I have Firefox open in the background all the time, and never have an issue. Unfortunately it could be any number of things and it's hard to tell, especially without your system specs...might want to try posting those and/or sending Jagex a support ticket. Hopefully they can suggest something.

Indeed, system specs would help tremendously in determining the cause of the issue. If you could post them, we can help you further!

 

Additionally to posting that, could you post a picture of the renderer command in the Developers Console. This can be done by accessing the Developers Console through pressing "Alt" + "~" keys at the same time. If done properly, a blue box comes up from the top. Enter here the command "renderer" and press enter. It will give you a list of stuff. Most of it will be incoherent for you, but could potentially also clear up some issues. Additionally it would be nice to see if the cache is fully loaded. This can be checked through the "displayfps" command in the aforementioned Developers Console. The cache should be anywhere between 13gb and 15gb.

 

EDIT: Also have you tried a different browser such as Google Chrome to see if the problem is persistent across different browsers? This would just to exclude Firefox from being the cause. (To be honest, the browsers could still be a problem...).

Thanks for the help everyone, but I found the solution on my own. By going to settings and put the graphics to the lowest quality possible, FireFox works fine now.

 

Yeah, I remember now the reason it worked in the past is because of these settings. So I'm marking this thread as answered.

Mind fill me in as to why you need to set the graphics to low for FireFox to work? Just for future reference for myself, might someone else encounter the same problem and ask the same question ;).

Because that uses less of the computer memory that way.

 

Yeah, the high graphics take so much of the computer memory that it's hard to do anything else while playing. I hope this helps.

Do you got a system with less than 4GB of Ram then?

I'm not sure, but the version of Windows I have is Windows 7.

Windows version (or OS version really) shouldn't have any effect on anything really that is mentioned in this thread so far. If you are unsure about any computer related hardware, there is this program that display the Computer System components rather straightforward: Speccy. If you download that program, and open it, it will show all the necessary information on the "Summary" screen. Would you be so kind to post a picture of the Summary screen?

Alright, here you go:

My apologies on the late response, looks like it is indeed the shortage of RAM. Both the webbrowser and the Client can use a lot of ram together. You can either fix this by adding more RAM to the system, 8gb total should do so another 4gb added, or by using either the Java client or a browser.
