I quit runescape 7 years ago, and recently came back after playing some oldschool runescape. A regular problem I keep getting is all the textures in the game turn solid black, or occasionally solid blue, whenever I minimize runescape/switch windows on my pc. Only the sky shows anything at all. When I lodestone/teleport away, the map loads and it's back to normal. The cpu/memory is usually around half with chrome running as well. I tried this on two separate computers, an older computer and a G3 dell gaming laptop, and it is exactly the same. I can't even check the wiki while playing because of this. :( Any assistance?

Never heard of this before.. Weird it's happening across multiple machines.

What are the specifications (especially graphics) of the machines on which this is happening, and have you confirmed the size of the Disk Cache (and thus that it is fully built?). You can see Disk Cache size if you run the 'displayfps' command in the Developer console. You want it to be Purple, and somewhere between 6-8GB.

Update: I turned on vsync, it seems to have helped. I am also able to force the game to turn black by repeatedly minimizing and bringing up the window quickly. I will try the displayfps thing.
