will the beta version be increased anytime soon for more than 25k users? I would love to try it out


My thinking is it could be either tomorrow or sometime this week or the coming couple of weeks, seeing as RS companion app won't be supported after February 4th. Now the question is weather it's more android spots or an actual ISO beta remains to be answered

My device somehow deleted the mobile version and is saying that it's installed on another device. I cannot download again no matter what I try. Is there any way that I can scan and repair the file? Or get permission to download again on the correct device?

I notice that the mobile beta requires Android 5, and 2 GB of RAM.

These aren't specifications that are shared by just about every smartphone out there; Android 3 and 1 GB of RAM, for example, characterize my smartphone.

Are these demanding requirements simply temporary features of the beta, since the focus is on getting it to work properly, not on optimizing it... or is it likely that the final version will have such requirements as well?

This is basically the error that I ran into. It apparently downloaded onto the wrong device for me, and the device that would run it fine is incapable of clicking the button because it says "installed" on another device with the same google play account. Hasn't happened to me with other apps...

Jagex is just doing what nearly every other gaming company does. The major mobile games gradually increase their operating specifications so that they can continue to evolve the app and not get held back by players living in the stone age. Players left behind have to learn to adapt, by upgrading their outdated smartphones.

It's not like Jagex isn't already planning on phasing out the Java client in the near future. It's a fact that the Java client is holding Jagex back in evolving the game further, and time spent on the Java client is wasted time, as it could be used on the NXT client. I think Jagex is learning by trying to make the transition between mobile and desktop version as seamless as possible, as it would also be further wasted development time if Jagex were to make a mobile exclusive version of RS and then maintain both mobile and desktop clients in the future.
Hard -> 3a Range Top (#357), 3a Full Helm (#439), Barrows Dye (#1755)
Elite -> Shadow Dye (#510), Barrows Dye (#680, #1567), 3a Druidic Staff (#969), Sack of Effigies (#972), Ice Dye (#1539)
Master -> Barrows Dye (#480)
